Just had to share this with my fellow ttc-ers.

This is our 2nd month on ttc. My ovulation was last week.

So my husband asks me Christmas eve if I have taken a test lately (hpt). I told him no it wasn't time yet i still had another week. His response was "You mean you can't tell like 24 hours after it happens?"

Facepalm big time! It took me a few minutes to stop laughing to tell him no i could not it takes a while for the implantation to accrue.

BeautifullyBlessed responded: we wish we can tell only 24 hours after! I so want to be able to tell as soon as the egg is fertilized.

I don't think the men can handle all of the details of "ttc." I actually told DH that it would be a good time to bd since I was ovulating that day...let's just say I didn't get the results I wanted. I'm never telling him I'm ovulating again!

Oh, if only it were that easy!!! Haha!

I know right!

But as BeautiflyBlessed said men can't handle the ins and outs of TTC details. DH is at least asking questions now...why are u taking your temp in the morning...whats that app do.

Last month i didn't tell DH i was ovulating but tried to jazz it up. I got ignored

So this month I used opt and sent him and email at work, texted him then called him "Flower day!" so he was aware this time.
