    Default IVF and older kids/step children?

    I am sorry for all the questions and thank you for all your patience and help so far you are all amazing. Thank you.

    My husband has two children from his previous marriage one of which is with us 90% of the time, he is 19 and opposed to the idea that there will ever be more children. He is a pretty self centered young men and made several comments in the past like "I better hope you never bring a baby in this house and if you do it better be not near me as babies smell" or similar. He is very intelligent but just lacks any sort of social skills. The other kid is 15 and the total opposite. The younger child is with us 30-40% of the time.

    Now my husband's older child will know the drugs for ivf as he is a pharmacy student which really worries me.

    How can we hide the ivf process from him? Any ideas? Have you done this?

    @KittyDeFleur Well, isn't he a ray of sunshine??? What a rude individual!! Your DH shouldn't let him speak that way and frankly I'd be saying if he didn't like it he knows where the front door is!! But that's a whole other thread....

    Some of the meds you can hide in your cupboard etc as they don't need to be refrigerated. Do you have a lock on your bedroom door?? What about a bar fridge for your bedroom?? The issue will be keeping the FSH/Trigger injections cold, so you'll either have to hide them in a cold bag/esky with icepacks that you can take with you everywhere you go or hide somewhere in your bedroom etc where he won't find them.

    I wish you and your DH all the very best of luck Luv!! you get your sticky BFP asap!!!
