Now that we're TTC, I've been telling DH about some of the Old Wives' Tales about TTC, fertility, etc as I come across them. I work evenings, so while I was at work tonight, I texted DH and asked him to wait up for me (rather than going to bed before I do). I told him tonight would probably be a good night to BD since I'll probably O tomorrow. His response: "oh, you don't believe all that stuff about only getting pregnant when you ovulate, right?" I actually had to explain to a 36 year old man how conception works.
You mean there's not just an egg hanging out all month just deciding when it feels like meeting up with a little spermie? No way!
I think he got the scare tactic class "Have sex and she will get pregnant... end of story". He really thought the whole concept of being fertile a few days a month was just a myth perpetuated by people convinced that as long as they avoid those few days, they can't get pregnant.
I'd like to remind those people that as long as the woman is on top, she can't get pregnant anyway... hello, gravity!
