Got our injection training session tomorrow (v nervous! I hate needles) and will start with my next cycle. A lot of friends and family who have been really supportive of our journey so far are now asking when our treatment starts. My husband and I have discussed this and have decided we don’t want anyone to know the details from here on in. As the timings are so precise I don’t want a load of people calling and asking for results, firstly because if it doesn’t work I don’t know how I’ll cope with that and also coz if we do get pregnant I don’t really want to share the news early on as anything can happen and I’d rather wait until we’re more sure everything is ok. My husband attempted to explain this to his mother yesterday and she just got really offended and huffy. I was dreading this response and I have a feeling that some of my friends and family will react the same way.
I don’t want to alienate people but the next bit feels really private. Let’s face it no one usually calls up their mother and says ‘I had sex with my wife last night mum, I’ll call you in two weeks and tell you if she’s pregnant!’ Why should it be any different for us?
