My hubby and I got married last September.We agreed to NTNP,which to me basically means we have sex whenever we're in the mood and such.But this was a very stressful year of work for hubby,and he was so freakin' busy,working lots of overtime,that bd'ing was put on the back burner.He would make excuses whenever I mentioned being in my fertile period.But to everyone else (family,friends,random strangers) he would always talk about how desperately he wants to be a dad,and he can't wait for us to get pregnant.

So I talked to him a few times through the year,explaining how this whole ttc thing works (basically bd'ing at the right times).We have been together for nearly 8 years,and aren't one of those couples that has sex every day,or every other day,and we tend to do it more on the weekends,when we're both off and relaxed.But suddenly,this past weekend (our anniversary was on Sunday) he became very much on board with the whole bd'ing thing.I think (according to cramps and CM) I ovulated yesterday,and we bd'ed every day from Saturday to yesterday.This is incredible,and has never happened.I think after a year of me explaining things,he's finally realised that I can't make this happen on my own,he needs to bring his part,at the right times.I told him,we can have sex whenever he wants and I'll always be up for it,so he needs to be up for it at the right times too,lol.

heres a little random update...so we thought i was pregnant this month! My period was 8 days late! it was really weird, I was having all kinds of weird symptoms, well at least I thought I was.

And anyway, we tested, got a bfn. But when I still didn't start I was like, what is going on?! and I secretly was hoping that I was pregnant. But, obviously I wasnt and when my period came I was sorta bummed. and, guess who else was bummed?! my hubby! He told me that he was a little sad! As much as I don't want him to be sad...it made me melt inside! I felt super excited that he was also bummed. ohh well, Maybe next month

My husband is similar. He has openly confirmed for years that he loves children and wants some of his own, but every time I mention the word 'trying', he switches off. I think they'd really rather just enjoy the sex without thinking of a baby!

A few of my friends have kids already and they said that until their partners actually saw a positive test (or in some cases the first scan!) the enormity of what they were doing didn't sink in. I guess for us, we're the ones with a biological clock and getting broody, looking out for signs during the 2WW that they are oblivious about.

Myangel - similar thing happened to us last month; I did a text and was disappointed that it was negative...and so was he! Gah why are they so CRYPTIC?! :P

yeah, he told me he wont be ready to "TRY" until he is at least 30. (4 more years...) but I think he just says that so i'll stop talking about it. lol

Ahahaha I am wondering that...don't want it to be too obvious as the pressure could be counterproductive
