I got another thoughtful heads up about a friend's pregnancy, as I have every five minutes in the last three years. The internet is full of helpful memes about what not to say to infertiles, so when someone gets it right, I can at least respond like a civilized human with a polite response.
The response I want to send:
Wow, great news, Bellatrix! Since we last talked, I'm now zero for four. Maybe fifth time is a charm! Hope you have better luck than I did. Good Luck, P
The response I did send:
Hi Bellatrix! Thanks for the thoughtful heads up. As you know, this has been tough on Sperm Donor and I, and it just takes time to process. I appreciate you thinking of me and being so compassionate.
I'm sure that you will be shortly surrounded by joy and will be a great mother. Maybe someday I will join you. Love, P
