We are friends with a couple who had twins via IVF. Whenever anyone comments on the fact that they had twins (oh wow how cool; wow twins really how exciting; etc) the husband is seemingly quick to tell people (even those he just met such as at our DD's b-day party) that his 'swimmers' didn't swim so well so they had some help. The wife never says anything when he does this; but it makes me uncomfortable for her. (I know that's my problem) I don't know if it bothers her or not; I'm not sure how to ask that without being offensive/insensitive as well...
I just don't understand why someone would feel the need to advertise that; I'm not trying to say anyone should feel ashamed for needing IVF in any way; but he almost says it as though he's proud of it and I don't quite understand that - anyone have any insight??
