DH owns his own company with 20-30 employees to manage. He works long days (12hrs+) and he has to bring his work home with him most days. You would think he would be the grumpy one about this, but it is me that is frustrated.
Times are still a bit volatile so we want to stay ahead by taking on more than we typically would work wise - and with aaaanother upcoming oop ivf cycle on our shoulders - I am for the most part patient with the amount of time to be dedicated to the business - partly for both of us I am his office mgr.
I suppose my overall whiney selfish gripe is that this work schedule is another way infertility has changed us as individuals and as a couple. If we didn't have the overhead of costly cycling - no one would have to work like a dog, which is ultimately taking away from our care free quality time as a couple.
All I know is that I would have far fewer gripes if the work schedule was paying off with a successful cycle in the end, but we have no way of knowing that we are working hard for something that will "payoff".
Just frustrated and I feel like I selfishly misplace that resentment on DH sometimes. It isn't his fault he has to work night and day to keep ahead - it is just another frustration owed to infertility and I hate it.
