@MGC Bertie congrats on getting to the end of the 1st tri. Such a nice milestone to reach!! Regarding what to tell people, my 2c worth: I tell most people that we did ivf. My ivf journey was not as long as yours (7cycles 2 bubs and I'm 36 now) so people don't suspect we had issues if they didn't know. I am comfortable talking about it and educating people about ivf and dispelling any myths or weird ideas people might have. Most people don't really know what to ask (especially men) but I have been able to help some work colleagues who have a friend or family member considering or going thru ivf to understand it a bit better. I think the more people know about ivf the better it is understood and accepted as a genuine medical issue. I'm sure we've all read comments sections on news articles about ivf and been horrified by the ignorance of some of them. Of course if u don't feel comfortable talking about it then that is fine too I understand just wanting to move on with life now and put all those rough days behind and really it is none of their business!!
I posted this pic on ig and fb as a sort of 'announcement' at 21w with a comment about having to wear my DH's cycling tops now
