Need some moral support. Blood pregnancy test is Monday. Frustrated that my husband is not as anxious as me, especially since he’s the one that wanted me to go through this in order to have his dna run through our child’s veins (im perfectly fine with adoption). 28 follicles, 19 mature eggs, 16 fertilized, 10 made it to day 5, 5 were euploid and 4 of those carry the kidney disease trait he has in his family. It’s been a long mental and physical journey. I need to stay busy this weekend.

Congrats!!!!!!!

Lol I would find it helpful if my husband kept his cool… ideally one person in the relationship can keep it together :)

Sounds about right.

There’s no reason to be anxious. You’ve done all the work to make sure there’s perfection inside of you.
Stay in bed, watch TV. Like binge watch a new series or something. It’ll help keep your mind off of it. But know that men are different when it comes to this. They are generally calmer, and personally I found it helpful that my husband was calm because he talked me down when I needed it. Hang in there, you’ll be fine! Wishing you all the baby dust!!!

I agree with K1, my husband does not react until things are right in front in him. Throughout this process, when I've had countdowns, etc. he just smiles and is somehow able to put it out of his head until it's time, (wish I could do that!). It is frustrating sometimes, but overall I find it to be helpful in keeping me sane. Men are from Mars remember :)

Sending you all the baby dust for tomorrow!

Hi. I’m an exempt employee (my boss’s only W-2 employee) and have two weeks of PTO. He’s making me use that for my physical therapy and doctors appointments, and I just got diagnosed with something related to my I jury (not work related) that could qualify me for temporary disability. How do I approach this and can I get fired for this? I have to take care of my body! And he’s insanely rigid, cheap, stubborn, and at this point I don’t even think he cares about me. I’m a very hard worker!

She adamantly refused and cried and says we are buying together and she doesn’t want her own place.
I was calm and reasonable. What do I do?
