IUI support from family

Postby kdevault1969 » Tue Jun 20, 2006 5:47 am

Hi! I come here with mixed emotions, as I am SO excited to be pursuing IUI fertility after 10 years of thinking I could not have children after having 1.5 ovaries removed from endometriosis.
Finally, at 37, I have decided to pursue a donor - and have found one. My mother, however is completely irrational and unsupportive.

I am going to be inseminated on July 6, 7, or 8th, and SO happy about it, but also upset, because my mother is so beligerently unsupportive about this. Has anyone else had this issue with family who meant so much? I want to be pregnant with my mother's help and support, not with her selfish anger.

Hi Nictor and kde,

Wow, I am so lucky to have my family! I never realised it until reading your posts. I am so sorry to hear that both your families have been unsupportive. How totally selfish of them. They have not been in your situation, so how dare they be critical of you for trying to obtain the most fundamental need on earth - the need to produce offspring. I am assuming this has to do with religious beliefs?

My family are catholic and I was a little concerned about how they'd react but they have all been great.

I wish there was something I could tell you to make it easier. Just stick to your guns and do what you need to to get your family. They will have to come around to be part it or else they risk losing you and your babies. Their love for you will overcome religios beliefs and if it doesn't, well then its their loss, not yours.

I wish you the best of luck.
