I called DH last night and told him about yesterday's appointment. When I got to the point about the SA he said, I'm NOT doing that! How far do you want to take this? I was shocked to say the least. He said that we already have 3 kids and don't need another one. That if it happens it happens but if it doesn't then we should just let it be.
It old him that it was ME who was having the majority of the tests done. It was ME who has and would have to go through the pain of being PG, not to mention another C-section. All I was asking him to do was jack off, and that he does it enough that it shouldn't be an issue!
He told me that he didn't want to talk to me because I got HIS defenses up.
I told him that if we get the test results back and they said that they couldn't help us then I would leave it at that and be done, but if there was something I could do for one more then I wanted to do it.

Ugh, why do men have to be so difficult when it comes to this? I swear if men were the ones to have children we'd be in crisis right now!

Thank you *kiliki* for the beautiful siggy!

My DH whined about having to do it. I had absolutely no sympathy. It's so ridiculous, we're the ones who get poked and prodded and submitted to humiliating and sometimes painful procedures not them. They have to do a simple non-invasive test and it's the end of the world!

I hope he comes around!
