How much do you talk about it? Does he ask questions about your times of the month and so on? Interested to hear different experiences.

We try not to talk about it too much but H does often ask if it is a good time and when af is due! H was actually the one saying I should get opks lol! His colleague's wife used them and they got thier bfp the second month of using them, sadly we haven't been that lucky though.

As we're just starting out, we talk about it quite a lot. We have quite a bit of time before we can start TTC'ing so we're both interested to understand what's involved. He's a nerd like me so likes looking at my chart, baby books and googles some of the stuff we come across. He doesn't ask me questions as such - I just offer the information but he doesn't recoil at the horror of talking about CM and so forth - he's quite good really. I do wonder how long it will last though. I'll come back to you after July when we will be properly trying!

More than he was at the start, he used to say just relax etc and not want to focus on it, as time has gone on he has taken more of an interest. He'll look at my chart from time to time and has been supportive in us going to the Doctors now.
Funny thing he thinks he can smell when I am fertile!! It's a joke now I'll come home and get hime to sniff my neck if its near Ov!

He knows about ovulation and OPKs and temping, and most of it really. He knows that I know when OV is on the way, but I've never explained how (mucus, cervix, etc), he just trusts that I know what I'm talking about. We are quite relaxed though, much more than our first year of TTC.

I know whatever I told my OH would have went in one ear & out the other!
I would have told him when I thought I was ovulating and to get ready for dtd and when all too often I knew my period was coming but that was it really.
I always got negative opk's and never got into temping as a result.

AF, is still about and this will be month 1 of TTC with HAI.
He's been talking about Ovulation, and when we'll do the AI etc. He has more to do TTC really with the AI so it's a little different from "natural" TTC.
Last time it was constant, and this time is a bit more relaxed
