I'm debating what to tell my mom about our IUI. We had promised to keep our families informed of our progress if they would not bring it up unless we did. OK, my mom has not kept her end of the bargain at all. Not at all! But the end result is that we told her during her Christmas visit in general terms that we were planning on doing an IUI soon. She asked about it last week and I fudged, saying that was still in our plans, but didn't say anything that it was planned for that week. I'm expecting her to ask about it again soon. I feel like I should tell her something more concrete, but am thinking of giving a little lie that we will do it this week. My thinking is that then we should have a good week's head start before she starts asking about results.
Complicating this is that she is coming for another visit in 3 weeks. At which point I'm sure she will want to know every detail and it will be harder to fudge than on the phone. I also told my sister, who has been great about this (aside from the occasional comment when her kids are being a pain that I can have one of hers). DH has not told his parents anything, so they will need to be updated sometime before my mom's visit as we are all having a big get together.
Quiet house, happy kids…
