    my husband and i are about to start our second treatment of clomid, i want to keep it between us and my husband wants to tell the family, and we are argueing about it i understand where he coming from that he wants the support system but i cant stand to tell people if didnt work agian(if thats the result this time) like July when we tried our first cycle. i dont know how to get him to understand my point of view. any suggestions?

    Maybe you can reach a middle ground with him? Perhaps it would be okay for him to tell his parents, but not the entire family. It's important to have someone (other than your spouse) to talk to and offer support. In the beginning of this process I didn't want anyone to know. Over time, we started telling people when they asked when we planned on starting our family. In the end, it's a huge relief not to have this huge secret hanging over our heads. It also cuts out a lot, if not all, of the awkward conversations about babies and starting a family. Ultimately, it's up to you, but I'd try to find some sort of compromise.
