We were just talking about that

I didn't get to talk to my husband after the SIL conversation because he was out of town hunting again (turkey season). Don't worry, he didn't get anything :D

Well, apparently he called his mom while driving home and they had a conversation about how difficult BIL can be and his mom even brought up that she was sorry that they were having a boy since BIL seems to be so damn scarred by being circumcised (Which is of course a total load of crap, it's not like he can remember it, nothing went wrong. GET OVER IT!).

I just think it was funny that even his own mother thinks he's an over the top ass sometimes. It made me feel better.

DH and I also had a long conversation about our treatment last night. This cycle is not going to work (another post on this later, but trust me, it's doomed). I honestly think we may be saving money for IVF before the end of the year. It wasn't a happy conversation, but I needed him to really understand that now and understand why his brother's position hurts me so much.

I think it's sad that they have to be upset because the baby is going to be a boy. My son was circumcised, and he's just fine. He doesn't remember it and has no clue what it even means. lol
I'm glad you were able to talk to your DH about the IVF. I know the IF conversations never go that well here.

Hashing out the IF plans is always a big conversation -- I'm glad you and DH had a good conversation.

It sounds like you ended up with the better man of the two brothers! Yeah, and at least everyone recognizes that BIL can be a pain in the ass.

I'm glad that you and DH talked about treatment. I hope that DH can protect you from any fallout from his family, if you do end up doing IVF somewhere down the road.

In the beginning, IVF seemed so far out there, so extreme that I couldn't even really imagine it. But within the past few months, I had this realization that it probably was going to be our best shot at having a baby. The further I got with treatments, the more comfortable I became with the idea.

I'm sorry to hear that you think this cycle isn't going well. I am wondering what is going on. Sometimes those hopeless cycles surprise you though.

Hubby and I had a long IF conversation this week too.

I am sorry that this cycle looks bad.

Maybe your BIL will come around. If not, we will help you think of tiny penis jokes to tell him every time he is an ass.

Maybe you can start using the phrase "I hate to cut you off" or "I hate to cut things short."
