I am in the middle or actually close to the end of my fertility meds and awaiting possible retrieval within the next 5 days. My DH who has 3 children and is older than i is not real "into" this whole process. This is my second time trying ivf with icsy. I have myDH sperm in the cryo bank. I can't help but feel he is hoping it doesn't work. He hasn't even asked me about the process and i know he sees me giving myself injections at night. I told him he needed to go to the clinic to sign consents because he was planning to go out of town with his daughter for a sporting event during the time of my possible retrieval. I had to call a good friend to see if she could bring me to the hospital for the retrieval since my DH may be out of town. Naturally she said yes. But it makes me sad and mad that he is not remorseful for not being there or even considering going out of town for one of the most important days of my life. I am also a member of step families group here on DS but i figured maybe i could get some advise from my infertility friends. I am trying to not get too stressed out because i know that will not be good for the upcoming process. But i am scared it won't work and everytime i try to express my feelings it ends up in a fight. I need to keep my mind at ease and keep the stress to a minimum. Any advice??
