  • Honestly, there is no way to keep ur feelings in check!! U r goin through ALOT and he is goin to have to understand that...but at the same time u r goin to have to understand that he is hurting too...Make sure u talk about ur situation...that always helped me when I was trying to conceive...

  • i agree with mommytobee, sometimes there are situations in life when your emotions just cant be hidden and this might be one of them. not being able to have a baby is a huge stress on the woman, and the man. just try to remember the reason that your ttc, because you love each other and want to make a beautiful child together, that sometimes can be lost in the journey. just try to do the best you can when explaining how you feel about it, but make sure to be open to his feelings also. sorry i didnt mean to ramble, i hope this helps

  • Find someone else to vent to! Sometimes men have a hard time understanding that we just need to vent - they want to fix it. Sometimes, too, its hard for someone who is also very involved in the situation to listen to venting about it. So, find a sympathetic irl or online friend to vent with. Then you can talk with your husband, but not as often & maybe not quite so emotionally & he'll hopefully have an easier time with it.
