Is anyone struggling with what to tell your family, friends, co-workers? Is anyone not on the same page with your hubby? (Does DH stand for husband? Sorry, newbie here, but that is what I have gathered).
I am so open. I've always been open about my life and I have a group of girlfriends who are the same way. We seem to tell eachother everything. My Mom and I are best friends -- she even lives next door -- and I honestly think she knows more about me than anyone. I am not a private person.
On the otherhand, DH is much more private. His family is tight knit but they don't go into specifics about things. He has friends, but they talk about sports and lawncare. :-) His family and friends know how much we want a baby and that we had a miscarriage. He did tell his Dad and sisters that we were "getting help."
So, now I think it's a difficult thing because he is a bit uncomfortable that I've been so open. I wish we had talked about the issue before. He's not angry with me, but I feel badly that I didn't consider all the angles before I told. He does understand that a support group is important to me.
I'll find out if I am pg in less than two weeks! Scary... exciting. I am not sure if he'll want to tell his friends and family right away, but I do. I guess we need to have a talk!
Is anyone else going through this?
With my husband since 2000. TTC since 2004. I have endo and have had 3 laps. Also have IC. One miscarriage in 2008. Completed egg donor transfer in 8-09 and waiting for results. Holding breath!
