That's great of him!! Definitely a great attitude and completely true!
I haven't done IVF but partner makes sure he comes to my pregnancy scans. He doesn't come to the doctor appointments but ask about them straight away, and atm he doesn't want to go to parenting classes but he will
Yep my dh came to all appointments every cycle. We commented to each other a few times re lack of male partners there too but then thought it may be due to work commitments,we always had our appointments in the mornings.
When dp is in town for my fs appts he will come, but hasn't for any of the bt or scans. He was there for our first epu (duh), but was only in town for the second et. He's out until wednesday, so will miss our second epu tomorrow. Luckily we have a good haul of his stuff frozen!
It was my decision to go ahead with this cycle without him, otherwise we would have had to wait until May.
I don't mind him not being there for a lot of the appts, he gets an update as soon as they're over anyway. He knows that I want him there whenever we have transfers though, he'd never live being 1000km away when I got utd!!
The organisation I work for puts a huge emphasis on family. The longer I'm with them the more I appreciate the effort they put into their employees.
very su(ky that not all work places are so supportive!
I haven't undergone ivf but we did have to see an obgyn due to my PCOS and had a high risk pregnancy with heaps of drs appointments. My husband came to EVERY single appointment, ultrasound and blood test aswell
DH tried to come to every appointment but missed about 5 in 2 pregnancies due to work commitments. :-(
