We all talk about the tww symptoms etc. Nothing else is sacred while ttc so I thought Id lighten the mood today! God knows my mood needs lightening!
Dh doesn't have a clue about ttc and what that entails. So he's a happy man at the moment being at my beck and call for sex, how nice it must be to be a man sometimes eh? This is only my first cycle actively trying so it's fun and new at the moment but I can imagine it can lose it's appeal fast. How about everyone else?
This is such a good thread! Yeah everyone is always talking about symptoms, bbt, ttc and so much more but never the fun things.
My husband is super supportive. I have tried to explain to him the whole process from when you get your period, to ovulation, to cm and cp. He said it all confuses him and he doesn;t understand so he said just let me know when we need to have sex. haha our husbands are priceless. we have to figure everything out and they just enjoy the sex. LOL
Lol this made me chuckle, well we've been ttc for AGES now which is frustrating but I must admit our sex life has never been better! I try not to bother my OH with all the details of my cycle but he definitely enjoys being at my beck and call lol!!!
After 11 years of marriage, 12 years of being together and 10 years of ttc our "last"...The sex just SUCKS....He wants to "do it" when I don't and when I want to--he doesn't...This is the first time (since having to be put on progesterone) to actually have him bring up the fact that he found a thermometer that is used to track ovulation......I really think the sudden change of heart comes from the fact that his younger cousin just had baby #3 and they weren't even ttc...He is always trying to one-up him, and probably thinks we just have to get pregnant now.....Hey if that means I at least get before, on and after O' time..I'll take it!!
This is too funny and embarrassing. I actually lost my baby girl to stillbirth last July. So I am trying for a girl. So im in same boat; the dh doesn't understand that it can only be on the day I calculated and when he wants I can't and on 3/21 was the day I calculated. but he had a 14 hr workday and passed out in couch. It was a nightmare lol.
DH is interested to a point. He is all for the that has been more frequent but he calls my OPKs my 'scrapbooking project' since I tape them into a book with 'all sorts of letters and symbols things' he doesnt understand. He found the tube of PreSeed in the bathroom the other night and said "can I ask you something... explain why its babymaking friendly.. what makes it different??" lol We bought a whole bunch of HPTs today and he told me that the POAS thing is getting a little out of hand now. We are going to be broke. lol And the other night when I was at work he sent me a text asking 'which part of your pee sticks (OPKs) are safe to touch??, I dont want to get it on my hands...' It had been on the counter and dry for HOURS!! lol
...My hubby asks me all the time--"Is this the pee cup? I don't want to use it when I brush my teeth..."...I'm like "dude, I hide the pee cup down behind the toliet so, NO its not...I wouldn't leave my pee cup on the sink.."...MEN! and he also doesn't call them pregnancy tests--they are "piss strips"....UGH...At least he is having a change of heart this time around...LOL...Maybe I won't have to hide the test boxes under my car seat now...
Ahahaha! OMG ladies! Thank you for the chuckles!
Much needed & appreciated!
My DH also doesn't understand the "innards" (his words).
I've explained as much as I can, esp when I have to go for tests (what they're checking for),
but he usually gets uncomfortable & simply says "I really don't need to know all of that."
And not too long ago when he said that again to me, I said "Well, honey, I sure hope you know where babies really come from!"
The 1st mo I used Instead SC after BD'g...
He'd kiss me, put on his pj bottoms & RUN out of the bedroom saying," I don't wanna know" the whole way down the hall!
Hmmm... my mother always said she was coming back as a man in her next life.
Growing up, I always thought that was so weird for her to say, but I think I get it now.
But... when it comes to BD'g, he's a happy hubby!
It's changed things for us (it actually wears us out for the next week!)
--TG for a good night's sleep! whew!
I give him a "heads up" for estimated ov time. And OMG! The heat is on!
We flirt & tease each other so much! It's fun!
I think he likes how I turn into Little Miss Pouncy Pounce @ov time!
TTC has brought us much closer.
We laugh a lot & I think that's kept some sanity to our journey!
