TTC after 35

Found out about a birthday surprise...

So my birthday is next week.  DH and I log onto each others email often.  I went online the other day because he was unreachable and I needed to tell IVF nurse if dates for this cycle were ok.  He has a guys trip planned mid month so I wanted to find the email and confirm dates.  WELL, I see an email that says (in the gmail preview) "b-day...her birthday is coming up and here are some ideas...."  Here's my issue: I didnt open the email...BUT I WANT TO NOW!!  Would you?  I think it's one of two days next week, but not sure.  I wish I had no I tempted to peak for more info. 

Re: Found out about a birthday surprise...

  • Wow - that's so sweet of your dh.  The moral part of me says don't peak...but I totally would if I were you.

  • I would totally look! Happy early birthday!

  • It would kill me, but I more than likely would not peak.  This coming from someone who used to snoop around my parents home as a kid looking for Christmas presents ahead of time. 

    The other question is do you think he set the e-mail up knowing that you're in and out of his e-mail to test and see if you would peak or not?
