Sometimes we forget it is just as hard on the hubby's as it is on us. This TTC journey can be overwhelming on everyone. It was really hard on my DH to see me go through the emotional roller coaster every month. You have been through a lot, and although your DH's timing may not be the best, he is probably just feeling overwhelmed.

Hang in there and stay focused on a positive outcome:). If your doc. Is optimistic than you should be too!

I agree with the above post. Just after my dh decided to go with DE/ IVF & the same day I had my first injection & was feeling positive about everything, he just began venting about finances, & I felt so stressed & broke down.

He then explained that, It's not that he's having second thoughts - only that the ups & downs of ttc for 3 yrs. now seem so real & he's been trying to be supportive & strong for me but just needed to let it all out. My dh is younger than I, but has really back problems & also worries about his health & caring for a child. All the normal feelings that come with ttc....

Sending positive vibes that this will be it for you.

Thanks... I don't think DH will change his mind on this.

DHs cope differently than us. I think we're both realistic and optimistic but the emphasis is on realistic with him and opitmistic with me
