TMI: We're both very direct people, so I can't really relate.
I guess I just lucked out. DH has always asked or I've told him about EVERYTHING going on. Before we were doing ivf, if I didn't tell him when I was about to o or when af was due, he'd ask. Which has been a huge help to keep up with charting and all of my meds and appointments! I guess we're both more like Filadeluna's dh!
We just don't get embarrassed easily, or have any of the "tmi" restrictions with each other. He'll get calls at work telling him that I'm constipated, or have A LOT of ewcm, and he'll tell me he's been peeing way too much!
but everyone's different.
Sex: As far as sex, I'm an abomination among women. I always want it!
if it's been more than a few days, I wake him up and jump his bones!
He does the same to me, so it seems we're evenly matched!
. Confidants: We're blessed with friends that get it as much as us, so that's who we talk to about it (among other tmi stuff).
If we get pg from this ivf cycle, we're telling both of our parents on Christmas. We already have it all planned out. We bought Tiffany rattles for them that we're having engraved with "to grandma and grandpa", that we'll be giving both of them at the same time. DH got me a rattle for myself, that I have to find a display for
: Some of our close friends know we're doing ivf, so we'll tell them after embryo transfer. They've known every step we've been taking, even if they don't understand it!
We'll be the first among our close friends to have kids, so they don't even understand the DESIRE to be pg! But they're as supportive as they can be.
Testing: We do our embryo transfer on sat or mon (the 3rd or the 5th), so I'm going to start testing somewhere around the 10th. Our beta is the 15th, but I want to know BEFORE I go in, ykwim? I plan on buying dollar store hpts. Any reason to splurge on FRER?
It's fun to see how different we all are, but how much we still have in common!
