Keeping fingers crossed...

Hi girls! OPK said we were a go on tuesday but as of this morning, my temps have not gone up. Just to cover our bases, DH and I have DTD every 12 hours LOL. Even if we miss this cycle, it has been fun trying :cool:...

haha, Jackie, I'm the same way, I feel like DH & I have to DTD every day, and get nervous or upset if we don't (around OV time) I feel like the more the better! While of course it's fun, sometimes I feel like it the same over and over, so lately we've tried changing it up w/ new positions and/or locations (sorry TMI!)....and so far, DH has enjoyed himself Wink

:goodluck:

You girls are lucky. I can't get DH to BD more than twice in a row. My request for BDing have to be accurate, as I don't want to wear him out before O! ROFL

Lucky you! My DH hates the idea of BDing just to make a baby so I also have to time it well. Good luck catching the egg!

OMG - it is such a breath of fresh air to hear you ladies say that DH doesn't always want to DTD! The first few months of us TTC, it wasn't REALLY tough to get him to DTD, he said he felt "pressured" when I was like "I'm ovulating, let's go!" I only did this b/c we aren't every other day type of people, and I just didn't want to miss our chance....but I also didn't know when I OV, so we started like CD 12, but by CD 15, he wasn't having it, and I'd get upset, and we'd fight, and I felt like he subconciously didn't want to have a baby, or wasn't attracted to me, blah blah.
Luckily things have improved, and I entice him with new locations and/or positions Wink

Good luck!! Definatly sounds like you've done all you can!

As for the DH not wanting to BD enough thing -- it's hard not to get upset when you know you're Oing and they're not that into the idea. I'm glad things have improved TMarie! Seduction has its benefits ;)!

Actually the reason I joined this site is b/c I was talking to a g/f about the "issues" between DH & I and DTD. She actually became very good friends with her birth month group - like to the point that they have met in real life, & are still very close, 6 years later - & said that some really nice women are on this site and suggest I see if anyone else was gong thru this issue. & I must agree, she was right, everyone here is so nice, & I look forward to getting to know everyone a little bit more Smile

OMG you are so not alone! My DH has less of a drive than me and it used to really hurt my feelings and I thought he wasn't attracted to me etc.. but now i'm learning it's just how he is and he loves me he just doesn't love to "love" me as much as I would like Smile

ya, know.....its funny that you say that Gina. i feel that exact way sometimes and we have those arguments on occasion. i know he loves me so much more than he physically expresses sometimes and im just starting to be okay with the fact that hes not as needy as i am lol and that it doesnt mean he doesnt love me.

I think lots of us feel that way (unattractive or questioning it) when DH/SO isn't as eager to TTC as we are. I even asked DH if he wanted to know when I was Oing as I remember reading in Marley and Me that the DH had a bit of performance anxiety lol.

I do find that the BBs here are amazing. It's an awesome network to have especially as the LOs grow up.

Ditto this!

I asked my DH if he wanted to know when it was go time (ovulation day) and he was like, "Oh no! No need for extra pressure." lol

LOL I would probably say the same if it were me and DH was in my shoes. I mean, I love the guy but they've got the easy part imo.

well, ladies.. DH is not lacking in that department. other than.. the 10th time of BDing does take a little longer lol I had very little sex drive while I had the IUD.. it was pretty awful. anyway, I'm sure he's enjoying ttc!

I was on the July 08 bb and I met 2 of the ladies from that board and their fireflies Blum 3 we are still close and even have a group for most of our ladies that have kept in touch on FB! so yes, pg.org is great.
