I decided to be honest with my DH about how I’m a little depressed I’m not pregnant yet. We have been TTC for 7 months. While I know that’s not a long time compared to some bees it still hurts as the months go by. I told him i thought it’d happen by now and I really wanted to see the dr to rule anything out early on rather than waiting. We have a lot of friends who struggled with fertility issues and waited till later in life for children and by the time they started trying they ended up not being able to conceive. Dh is 32 and I am 27. My DR made me an appointment right away. She said she would do blood work and refer me to a specialist. So anyways, I let him know I was going to see the dr and asked if he would be willing to go too. These are two replies I got from him… I thought it was very sweet how supportive he was being 🙂
FW: Don’t be embarrassed. I’m here to support you. Let me know what you need from me. Love u
FW: Sorry. I didn’t know you were feeling anxiety about it. Go get checked out if you want and if need be, I’ll jerk off into a cup if need be. Haha. I may need a little help with that part tho 😉
Don’t mind the tmi aspect! LOL just shocked he agreed to that. Thought he would be all macho about it.

Aw, what a sweetie. Not many men ‘get it’, but he most certainly does.
I hope the tests go okay 🙂
On a side note, have you been charting and making sure you do the deed around ovulation time?

It’s so nice to see someone’s SO responding lovingly and supportively on here. There are so many threads about unsupportive SO’s. I love that your DH’s reponse was ‘oh no, she’s anxious and depressed about this, what can I do to help?…jerk off into a cup? yeah I’ll do that, now I’ll make a sex joke about it’
