IVF is much easier than having sexMy MIL is great but FIL has started saying some stuff that really pi$$es me off!
DH called them 2 nights ago to tell them that our second IVF attempt had worked and, although it's early days, we wanted to let them know I'm pregnant.
MIL was over the moon and lovely about it. This was FIL's response to hearing his son tell him he was expecting his first child:
FIL: "Oh. So was it natural or did you actually have to use IVF?"
DH: "No dad, I've already told you before, IVF is our only option, we weren't able to conceive naturally"
FIL: "I see. Well, there's never been any problems having babies on OUR side of the family....."
DH: "Well actually, as I've told you before, we both have issues"
FIL: "Well, I don't see how, your mum and I didn't have any problems at all."
So basically, it's not OUR side of the family causing the problem, HillDweller is clearly to blame for you having to resort to IVF. And what is wrong with you guys? Can't you just make babies like normal people? He's made it quite plain that he thinks we were just impatient and went through IVF because we didn't get a baby as quickly as we wanted to. Yes FIL, after 2.5 years and being diagnosed with all sorts of issues, we were going to throw $10k down the toilet so we thought we'd just play around with this IVF business for a bit of a laugh instead.
