Who you talk to and how you talk to those people can be difficult - I haven't told my parents yet because I really want to be able to surprise them, rather than have this be a stressful or "expected" thing for them. I did tell one of my close girlfriends, but she and her husband just had a baby and I'm not sure that she totally gets what I'm going through. The only person at this point who I've told and who has been super supportive is a good friend I work with. I can't tell you how thankful I am to have her as a friend. Even though she has never been through something like this before, she is always there for me when I need someone to vent to or bounce medical theories off of (ie. maybe "this" is what's wrong with me!). She definitely has never said "just relax and it will happen" and for that I'm very thankful. The whole "relax" thing sounds great and might be true, but you cannot relax when you don't have a plan or any idea about what's going on with your body.
