Howdy ladies, again

Hey there! I was here for a bit over the summer, when Male Resistance Factor pretty much shut me down. Now, armed with all kinds of (reasonably) encouraging test results regarding my, ahem, reproductive prospects (well, encouraging for my age, har har), I am working on getting DH on board for some IVF.

Wish me luck. You got any Male Sanity Dust to blow my way? I'd need that before you guys even try to hit me with Baby Dust! :P

Glad to see so many new TTCers, and also so many BFPs!!!!!!

Hey, there! Nice to see you again. Sending you some MSD (DH is much saner than I am so we've got some to spare). Wishing you the best of luck -- KUP on your IVF!

Bless you, girl.

I am going to go into couple's therapy with the kindest, most sincere, most DETERMINED appeal I can make in hopes of getting this cemented. I get why he doesn't want to do it, what he doesn't get (and what I've been afraid to say) is that his unwillingness to have one kid, born into a mature, stable, healthy, reasonably sane, almost-empty-cuz-his-kids-are-of-age household may end our marriage.

I am not gonna beat him up with that fact, but it's there.

I'm sincerely praying to the BabyGods that I can get him to come around. A huge twinkly cloud of MSD may help me through so THANK YOU.

With any luck, I'll be peppering you with IVF questions sooner than later. :)

Hello and welcome back! I hope you can get dh on board, that is such a obstacle when they don't give this 100%!! My dh (Oh my gosh!! I can put those abbrev. down now!!)is amazing and supportive and I know he would go as far as I wanted to, right now we are just hoping and praying it happens on its own like before, sadly that one ended in early m/c, and now I am having to watch my progesterone. Good luck!

Yep, he's your DH now! LOVE IT!

It's tough: Of course I understand his reasoning, but he's already had his own kids. And it's easy for me to feel guilty cuz I'm the one who changed my mind about more kids. But feeling guilty doesn't get me any closer to a BFP, a bean, or an eventual, you know, baby. :)

So I gotta woman up here, and see if he'll have a chance of heart. I'm spreading MSD in every corner of the house, and with pixie dust, that's also sure to help.

Obviously, I"m feeling SOME hope or I wouldn't be posting merrily away with you fine women.

Thanks, Michelle! I've slated October as "the" month to get serious about seeing if he'll turn his heart and head around. So I appreciate the well wishes.

Ooof. I love my husband, but HOLY MOLY this is a tough one. Because it's a situation where neither one of us is "wrong" so it's not an argument to be won, per se. Gack.

Lord, give me strength, give me grace, and give me some Male Sanity Dust, please.

Best of luck with your hubby - if you have any MSD left over after all the donations, I'll take the left overs...
