So, my story doesn’t fit with the post about the POAS comment from another bee’s Darling Husband, but it’s funny none the less.
Darling Husband and I were talking about the “fertile window”
Me: you know the chances of convieving each month are actually REALLY small, something like 20%”
Darling Husband: that’s not true, and besides, I have super sperm
Me: acutally, it is true, the egg is only viable for 12 – MAYBE 24 hours at most.
Darling Husband: No, you ovulate for 7 days!
7 DAYS? ummm…if only/omg that would be crazy!
Might I point out that Darling Husband is a nurse?! lol. I just shook my head.
what crazy/out there/random things have your DH/FI/SO said about the whole process?

Ha ha ha ha. I love it. And I’m glad you guys are keeping a sense of humor about it. TTC is a bit of a touchy subject in our house (DH is super-worried he is going to be the problem because it took his parents 9 years to have him). But the actual having the baby – that’s another matter.
Thus far he has taken to practicing his “football catching” pose and his Heisman pose (for after he “catches” the baby in the delivery room. And he wants to play Jump Around in the delivery room. (and if you guys haven’t seen that episode of Up All Night you really need to).

@iRun2004: I’ll have to check that out. We don’t really watch the show, but seems like it might be good “prep work”

Why does every male seem to think they have Super Sperm? Seriously, we have had almost the same exact conversation. Like, it’s 20% for all those shmucks out there, but us? We are all good because of his super sperm.

Also, if we DO end up getting pregnant on our first try, I cannot even imagine the gloating over said ‘super sperm’. My eyes may roll out of my head. 🙂

Super Sperm! Love it! SIL is pregnant too and Darling Husband and Brother-In-Law are basically saying that whoever has a boy is the one with the Super Sperm. The way men think sometimes 🙂
We also got pregnant on Super Bowl Sunday so to Darling Husband that means his child is going to be an all star.

The other weekend we were laying in bed and talking about babies. My Darling Husband asked, quite seriously, where would we put the baby?
My reaction was put the baby??! He meant which room would be for the baby and I just chuckled because we have two spare rooms and it is obvious the one next to us would be the nursery. I chuckled over that question for a couple of days.

@foodnerd81: Darling Husband too! He’s convinced once we decide to start trying- that is it..pregnant on the first try because “his juice has got it like that” ..I don’t know weather to laugh, roll my eyes or be concerned hahaha

@foodnerd81: omg I KNOW! I’ll never hear the end of it if we get it in the first try. (although, technically we haven’t because we’ve been “trying” since beginning of April, and I’m now taking provera to induce AF)

@anotherbee: hahaha, I swear I just had the same conversation. I was talking about going off the pill and he’s like…. then… baby? what about italy? dont you want to be able to drink wine? And I told him, I may not even get pregnant that fast since its only 4-5 months away and sometimes it takes a while. He looked at me like I had 3 heads!! And was like what do you mean?? I told him the same thing about how there’s only a small window every month to actaully get pregnant, and hes like nooooooooo, isnt it just like that? Stop preventing and BAM pregnant…. oye.

I was sitting on the couch a month or two ago and the baby kicked my cervix a few times (SO painful)…
Darling Husband: “Are you ok!?”
Me: “Yeah, the baby’s just kicking my cervix…”
Darling Husband: “Why does he want to get out?!” Super sad/ panicked look on his face.
I couldn’t help but laugh my head off:)

Haha these are hilarious. My Fiance thinks that it will just take the ONE TIME to get me pregnant as well.

@anotherbee: I think all men are convinced they have super sperm. I had the exact same conversation with Darling Husband when we decided to TTC. We did in fact get pregnant on the first try and he is convinced we got pregnant so quick because of his super swimmers lol

Three men in DH’s family have gotten their wives pregnant POST-vasectomy, so Darling Husband is convinced super sperm runs in the family.
When he went to get his SA a few months ago, he was so convinced that his numbers would be off the charts that he made everyone take bets. And I mean EVERYONE – my parents and sister, his mom and sister, our best friends…everyone. The guesses ranged from 19 million to 99 million ( the ‘normal’ cutoff is 20 million)…you can guess which one he bet on.
Needless to say, his perfectly average results knocked him down a peg, but now he’s insisting that he would have had higher results if he hadn’t been so stressed. Oh dear. Men and their sperm.

A word of warning about the “super sperm”! Friends of ours got pregnant on their first try (of course!)… the baby daddy of course gloated to all his male friends about his super sperm, did a dance, always rubbed it in their face about it. She lost the baby at 9 weeks.
I told my Darling Husband there will be no “super sperm” gloating in our house…. !
