It's my 32nd birthday today. As much as I try and have a fun day i feel so sad and even lonely? Even though I have fab friend and wonderful husband I want children s much and feel lonely as its so hard to be honest with people abut how I feel. Even my wonderful husband as we have male factor infertility. We're trying drug treatment but ultimately no where near starting Icsi still. I definitely do not resent him as its not his fault but I feel a bit disappointed that he's not more upset about the situation. He's so matter of fact which is a good thing I'm sure. I just feel like we've been through so much and don't feel he appreciates how hard it is. I don't want an award or anything. I don't know.

The milestones like birthdays and Christmas are often the hardest when struggling to conceive. I think it's quite common in relationships for one person to be more practical, matter of fact and optimistic than the other. My DH is that person in our relationship too. It can provide a good balance but equally, it can be frustrating that the other person doesn't seem to be as upset about a situation as we are. It's just their way of dealing with it.
Struggling with fertility is so lonely because no one talks about it, so many people have problems but it's rarely spoken about openly. That's why forums like this can be so useful.

Happy birthday, I hope you can at least have a bit of joy on your birthday though I understand why it's a difficult time thanks
