Stressed out!


Hi everyone, me and my husband have been ttc for 5 months now and nothings happening. I know that we can have children because i have a son from a previous relationship and me and my husband got pregnant 4 years ago but that pregnancy didnt work out My husband has spinal sclerosis so hes in pain a lot but we only have sex when he isnt in so much pain which is stressful because i think nothings happening because we are not doing it enough! A couple of days ago my husband came up with the idea of self insemination where my husband just masturbates in a little tub and then we use a syringe to put the inside me but i just dont think its going to work and im pretty sure the sperm doesnt go inside far enough. i just feel like im the only one thats really trying and my husband just thinks im crazy when i suggest all these different things that might help, he doesnt understand why im so stressed out at the end of every month when i get my period! He wants this so bad too but hes so laid back and tries not to let it get to him, i wish i could do that!! I dont have anyone else to talk to, i have just moved to America 9 months ago to be with my husband because we met in England, so i dont have family here or any friends Anyone else in a similar situation?

I can't say I am in a similar situation, but that sounds tough, and I am sending you ! I hope you can meet some friends in your area soon and also that you get your bfp. I am actually American but I moved to Europe, I know it takes time to develop a social network, and its tougher when everything is just a bit different than what you are used to.

Its hard to motivate men for ttc sometimes too, I have had a lot of fertility issues and its only in the last little bit that my husband really jumped fully on board with doing whatever we need to do to get pregnant. Hopefully your husband will get there with you. Have you researched fertility and spinal sclerosis at all? Maybe they have tips on websites regarding the disease that might be useful for you. I have no idea about self-insemination, but maybe its worth look at... again I have no clue about it, so I can't really help. Hope it all works for you though!

thankyou so much! i havent researched fertility with spinal sclerosis, would it effect his fertility? My husband has been trying a little harder today which is good, he took me everywhere to try and get pre-seed which is a lube that is suppose to help the sperms! everywhere was sold out so it must be a good sign! how long have you been ttc? I get stressed out too much and i know thats just not going to help, im getting better at it though

My first LO was conceived in 2 cycles using a Tupperware and a baby medicine syringe. It obviously does work I used preseed and stated with bum on a pillow for at least half an hr after. If you want to pm me feel free

Actually, self insemination can be very effective if done properly. I'm sorry you're having a hard time, hon.

YAY! Well I think that is going to be really helpful to you! And you should do as much research as possible about self insemination, and I think you can totally make it happen! I have seen plenty of ladies that have had complete success with insemination, and I know you can too!
