"I don't get it?"

"I don't get it?!" That is the questions that will make both hubs and I twinge for months to come.
This weekend was great. Easter weekend filled with family, food, and baby news! First stop Friday night was my MIL (Mother-in-law's) house where we were going to tell her we were pregnant for the first time. We were so excited!! Everything was going so well....then, the questions started.
My MIL was one of "those" women to accidentally got pregnant with TWINS. Therefore, she self-admittingly knows NOTHING about ttc or the whole baby making process for that matter. So as we began our story we started from the beginning, pcos. Explained all about that. After a ba-ZILLION questions we got into our treatment. We went through the whole process and every step we had to take. Well we got up to the insemination day and all hell broke lose.
Mind you this is a woman that has had two sons, has a husband, and also works in the medical field. As I explained how hubs and I went early in the morning to the clinic for hubs to put his "sample" in a cup, then we would come back and pick it up.
"Wait" she says, "I don't get it."
Me: "Huh?"
Hubs: (Horrified look on face)
Me: "He went back into the clinic and put his sample in a cup."
MIL: "I don't get it, how did it get in a cup."
Hubs: (Even more of a horrified look on face)
Me: " He HIMSELF put it in the cup"
MIL: "What?"
Me: (About to just shout out "He freakin jacked-off lady!")
Hubs: (Literally about to die of humiliation, secretly wondering "Does she need to see my form or something?")
MIL: "Oh....well was there some kind of material for you to use?"
Me: (Mouth dropped open, looking for hubs to take over)
Hubs: "Yes mom, there was magazines and movies from the 1980's"
Silence for a bit
Wow, still unbelievable how that particular conversation took place. I can't make this stuff up. You just gotta laugh.
The rest of the weekend went great and all family members have heart the big news. I'm so lucky to have such supportive family who is truly happy for us.
And we can all sleep better knowing that MIL knows how her son impregnated her daughter-in-law using pornographic material.

First off, big congrats to you and B, I am so happy for you both. It all makes sense why it has been so easy to talk to him about our own troubles over the last year and a half ttc. Your blog is so honest and reassures me that all of my crazy thoughts are some what normal. Thanks for that! I know our time will come and I find comfort in knowing how blessed you now are.

That is great! LOL! I can see my MIL saying the same thing.... while my FIL sat back and laughed. Always nice to have a good laugh now and again- even if it is at your own expense! =) Thanks for sharing that story.

That's hilarious. Glad everyone was happy and supportive in the end! And once the baby comes, everyone will completely forget how the baby got there :)

Holly said...
