    Absolutely we tell people.

    I still think that the term IVF is swept under the carpet or spoken about in hushed terms far too often. I think it's important to help educate people on IVF and ICSI. I certainly don't think it's a secret that should be hidden.
    Our kids will be told exactly how they were created, and we have photos and journals of many of the stages we had to go through.

    DH and I have decided that when we decorate our nursery for the bub we are finally pregnant with that we are going to put a reading tree in the corner, (always the plan) but we are then going to put 4 caterpillars in the tree and one butterfly flying to symbolise our 4 embryos that never made it past implant and the baby that did.

    Yes absolutely we do! Our ds's are extra special and we let everyone know
    The fact that they are biologically ours is the most important thing to Dh and I. Doesn't matter that they had a helping hand to be concieved.

    Yes I will. When my (future) children ask how babies are made, I will ask them if they want to know how most babies are made or how they were made.

    Yes we were very open about the whole process. We had a lot of people both close and acquaintances ask us about the process because they are looking at starting fertility treatment. If we can help others and make it a bit easier then I figure it's a good thing.

    I pretty much tell anyone & everyone. IMO it's not something to be embarrassed about, I'm proud to be a success story! If I can help anyone by sharing my experience then that is an added bonus.

    I plan for bubs to always know he/she was IVF just by always talking about it.

    Bahahaha I tell everyone about my ivf because I'm a lesbian and get tired of being asked if I enjoyed sleeping with a man. I do know of people being against ivf though. That the children aren't normal and stuff like that......

    Yes! We have told our closest friends and family that we are doing ivf and have all intentions of telling our one day babies.
