Let us guide you along week-by-week!)
I talk to my mom at least once a day.
Of course, I'm an only child, and my father left when I was little, so my mom and I are especially close. I'm no help.
Pre-LO, almost never. My step mom would call once a week or so to check in and my mom would call once in a blue moon if she had something to say. My mom understands that no news is good news with us. My MIL would call and talk to Shaun once a week or so as well.
Now, my dad and or step mom check in via phone once a week, or when they want to come visit. My step mom emails me from time to time just to say "thinking of you" as well. My mom calls when she wants to come visit, usually once a week. My MIL on the other had been calling daily for a while, so I know where you're at.
I avoid my mother at all costs. I haven't spoken to her live in almost 2 months. She emails constantly but I only reply about once a week. She's f'ing crazy.
My dad lives in his own world and I'm lucky to hear from him once every 3 months or so. Nothing wrong with our relationship, but he's just kind of out there.
IL's live an hour away and pretty much stalk us...
My Mom - once a weekMy Dad - once a monthIL's - every other week or so
TTC #1 Cycle 14 - IUI#1=BFN, IUI#2=BFP | TTC #2 Cycle 8=BFP!!
I call my parents once a week (usually every Sunday). sometimes I'll email my mom but that's sporadic.
My H talks to or visits his dad a couple times a week. But he's in town and in a nursing home.
my mom - depends. at least once a week but usually more like 3 or 4 times a week.
my dad - a few times a month.
my ILs - never, if i can help it. MIL is BSC.
I'm really bad, I hate talking on the phone usually and don't call people.
My mom: once every couple weeks. Usually I don't call her, she calls me.
My sister: few times a week, again she usually calls me.
My ILs: when I have to, which is rarely
My dad is not in the picture.
i don't ever call. i'm aweful. but my mother calls/texts me at least once every 2-3 weeks.
same with the husband's mom- he calls his dad all the time though. they talk about "man stuff" like leaky pipes & lawn mowers. good times.
My mom: at least once a day
My dad: when he answers the phone when I call home, maybe once or twice a week
ILs: DH probably talks to them every day. Me, I probably talk to them about once a week.
I talk to my mom at least once a day. No daddy =(
One of us talks to his parents a few times a week.
They are all in town.
I talk to my mom once a day. My dad, maybe once a month.
I've been trying to get DH to call his mom every Sunday, or else she starts getting weird. He never got around to it this weekend, so she called us to lay on the guilt last night *sigh*
I talk to my mom every 2-3 weeks, we probably email every 1-2 weeks though. Neither of us like the phone, and my dad is especially awkward on the phone.
MIL calls on Thursdays if she wants DH to come over that weekend and help them with something. Otherwise DH talks to them every 2 weeks or so, sometimes longer
I talk to my mom at least twice a day. If not more.
IL- at least once or twice a week, depending on what's going on.
I talk to my mom once a week. I would prefer less, but I get the guilt trip voicemails "I miss you..." I rarely talk to my dad. He is not a phone person. I talk to the ILs once a week, sometimes more, sometimes less.
DH talks to his mom multiple times a day. He probably talks to his Dad once a day or every other day. He never talks to my parents.
My mom stopped calling me because I would never call her (how's that for catholic guilt) so I try and call at least once a week if I remember.
My dad is not a phone guy so I rarely talk to him. Unless I call my parent's house and he happens to answer.
(funny story: Apparently my parents (and I sound like my mom which has led to some awkward moments with her friends who just dive right into conversation) sound exactly alike on the phone. They've been married for 32 years and my mom can count on one hand the number of times he's answered the phone and the person calling actually realized it was him- us kids withstanding. So now to mess with him whenever I call home and he picks up I go "Martha?" Just so I can hear him respond with his usual "no this is Jimmy". Cracks me up every time.)
Inlaws? I could be dying on the side of the road knowing that my MIL was close by and able to help and I still wouldn't call her.
MrBunny talks to his parents quite often though- usually when he is driving between home and work.

talk to my mom at least once a day.
IL -- i almost never talk to them on the phone. they call DH on his cell and i think they talk about every other day.
Before the kid, once a month, maybe. Now we Skype a couple times a week.
As for the IL, I don't know how often he calls his folks, and I don't care. I know his sister doesn't think we talk to his mom enough, but again... I don't care.
I feel a little bad after reading how often some of you talk to your parents!
My parents - about once amonth? If I'm going through a hard time (not IF related) I'll sometimes call my mom once or twice a week on my way home from work.
Not sure how often DH talks to his parents. They usually call him.
I talk to my mom 1-2 times a week, but the calls are short because we have issues. I hardly ever talk to my dad - maybe every other month. No reason, other than he doesn't like to talk on the phone.
MH talkes to his parents 1-2 times a week, and his calls are long, sometimes an hour.
