I went to the grocery store last night and as I went down the vitamin aisle, I decided to get some pre-natal vitamins. I beat DH home and hid them in the door of the refrigerator thinking I could start taking them and then in a few days, casually mention to him that I was doing so. Well darned if he didn't go in there after dinner and find them. He was like "what is this bottle?" as he pulled it out and turned it around to read the label. I sprung off the couch like my butt was on fire and grabbed the bottle from his hand and got all flustered as I told him he wasn't supposed to be snooping the fridge. He laughed at me and hugged me and said that he was glad I was taking them and told me that he's been taking zinc for the last four or five weeks because he read somewhere that zinc is supposed to increase and maintain sperm and their viability. He kept laughing at me because I just knew he was going to freak out and he didn't. In fact, I was more freaked out about the zinc than he was about the pre-nates. Just when I think I have him figured out, he goes and does something new!!

LMAO! That's awesome about the zinc and the fact that he had been thinking ahead himself and preparing - very cool! I'm excited for you guys!

That's so funny! Thought you were busted! But really.. that's good to start taking those pre-natals even before you're trying. I started like a month ago or so.

So your DH was taking zinc all on his own?? That is amazing! What a neat guy. I don't think that mine would have that initiative. My poor DH is on about 12 different vitamins a day to help his sperm count. That plus the surgery will maybe help. I hope!

That is so cute! It's funny how we don't want to jinx anything!

ROFLMBO!

That is such a funny story! I'm new over here at parentsoup. I normally hang out on the food boards, where my mom is a CL, but came over here to lurk about other people thinking about having kids. This past weekend DH and I had my 14 month old nephew and my dad in for the weekend. I got to play mom, and I loved it! DH had a great time, too, and he admitted afterward that he is "more ready than he was before". That's huge! We've been married about 1 1/2 years, so I'm trying not to rush, but it's so hard!

The thing that made me laugh so hard at your story, is that I'm terrified DH is going to come in here while I'm at the computer and see "Waiting to Try" really big at the top of the screen and wonder what the heck I'm doing. Then he's going to probably shut up about the topic thinking I have gotten too excited about it!

I hope to get to know you ladies soon! I'm trying to pick up on the lingo, so I may ask questions!

LOL! That's awesome! I'm so excited for you! I thought you were going to be busted with the prenates, too. I'll have to get my dh to take zinc tablets... Apparently caffeine is good for men too - it improves sperm motility. It's not a good idea for women though, it reduces fertility. So when are you planning to TTC? It must be pretty soon ;)

Nicki, we're glad to have you here. I totally know what you mean about DH seeing the computer screen. I have yet to tell my DH that I post on this board because he might freak out and then he might wander over here and see what I say about him! YIKES! I almost feel like I'll jinx everything if I tell him about the board even though I'm always telling him stories that are posted or about different things I read. I always just say a woman one of my message boards . . . I think he thinks the only ones I post on are the cooking boards where I lurk all the time. What he doesn't know won't hurt him. I think once we start actively TTC, I might tell him about my secret life here at ivillage, but then again maybe I won't.

Anyway, welcome to the board and hope to "see" more of you around!

I hoping for August or so. We are going to two concerts in July so I don't want to be pg then or even trying because of the atmosphere at these things--mosh pits, secondhand smoke, heat, etc. He said the other night that it would almost certainly be in the next six months, which by my calculations is at least October. I would like to start real casually and let nature do her thing even though that will drive me crazy. I think if I start out charting and timing to the day, etc. it will send me over the edge--LOL. I'm the least patient person I know and if we try really seriously at first, I know me well enough to know that as soon as we BD I'll be yanking a pg test out of the medicine cabinet praying for positive results. My DH would probably have me committed!

That is hilarious! Sounds like something that would happen b/w me and my DH. BTW- Where did your DH read that about the zinc? I swear I'll put DH on it this weekend!

I just e-mailed my DH asking about the zinc. I'll post the info/website or whatever when he answers me. Now I need an excuse for why I was asking--LOL. I may have to come clean with my ivillage secrets today.
