Speaking of DHs - how do you lovely ladies help your DH to cope with the disappointment of a BFN each month.
He is very positive this month, I'm not so confident & I'm not sure how much longer he can deal with BFNs.
Yeah I know that the bum in the air won't necessarily do anything - but it makes me feel much more like I'm doing everything I can anyway
This is obviously a very tricky one.
I'm getting nervous as af due in 2 days & starting to get crampy. After a BFN from Round 1 Clomid, DH was very upset as he assumed it was a magic pill that would fix everything & it didn't. He is sure that something is very wrong. I keep trying to say that every BFN brings us closer to a BFP & that's really all I can do.
It's like going back to the start of TTC all over again - when we didn't fall in the first few months, it got harder and harder to say it to him each month.
Then after 18 months we started Clomid and 6 months later still no luck.
I try to tell myself, and him, that perfection takes time! He knows I'm a very picky person so we kinda started to joke about it and now he'll say something silly like "I sent some good soldiers in there tonight babe" and I say something equally silly like "well they've gotta make it through basic training to even consider setting up command stations in my uterus".
OMG that just sounds really dumb..... but i think the "sillier" we are about it - the easier it gets to take the news.
Hey girls, I don't really have any suggestions cos we fell on our 2nd try with dd, but I reckon a bit of humour would help. I have a feeling it might take longer to conceive this time so will keep ur suggestions in mind. Hope none of you have to wait any longer for your bfps
Well CD30, no AF & a BFN. Looks like I have to deliver sad news to DH again : (
It's not over until AF arrives! Some people don't get a BFP until they are a few days overdue for AF. I have my fx for you.
