    Know its a bit personal but how often do you do the bd?!!!

    We have only been ttc for one month and feel like I am becoming obsessed!!! Think my sex drive has increased coming off the pill but the more I think about having a baby the more obsessive I am becoming!

    Had a row last night because I wanted to :sex:really late at night and DH was shattered as he was up at 5 am for work. I am a terrible person!!!

    aww bless you. the day I get positive OPK and the day after are a must for us. This month we did CD 23 and 24 then had a rest 25, 26 and then CD 27 (that's when I got pod OPK) and tonight :) the month I had my chemical we did day before pos OPK then 2 days after. I have a low sex drive, like practically zilch :(

    We are trying alternate days this months and then for 3 consecutive days as soon as I got a positive on the OPK. Don't want sex to become a chore or only linked to making babies, really want it to stay relaxed and fun!

    Well last month we were a bit lax with :sex: and it didn't happen so this month we are doing it as much as possible. I am at my most fertile on Saturday so, we had sex on sunday, tonight, will do on thursday, friday, saturday and sunday! lol.
    My o.h works night and as he is the night manager he works over 12 hour shifts, so he is tired a lot. And i do all 6.30am starts so getting time is quite difficult.

    I'd like to have a lot more sex, like almost every day, but we only manage about once a month. I'm hoping to triple that this month and :sex: 3 days in a row right before OV.

    We have :sex: every other day when I can get to bed before he goes to sleep.:rofl: He works construction and now with the sun up early and out late it's late when he gets home and then dinner and dishes and baths:hissy: you know the routine. By the time I get to bed it's sometimes much later than him and he is very tired. So I wake him up and we bd every so often. LOL

    We have been trying every other day particularly around my fertile time. I don't tell DH that it is my time as I don't want him to feel pressure which seems to have worked so far.
    We seem to be in sink with each other when it comes to :sex: It can be really frustrating when I am in the mood and ov and he isn't but as they say it takes two
    soo I need to have patience!

    Its normally me that isn't in the mood! I do it anyway, lol.

    My husband is 7 yrs my junior and has a sex drive to match! If he doesn't get it enough when af is gone he wonders why. LOL :rofl: I don't tell him when my fertile times are as I don't want him to feel pressured. It took three months last time and so hoping I get right the first time this time. LOL :muaha:

    Maybe some of you have got the right idea. This cycle I told DH when I was OVing and he did complain once that I was making baby-making unromantic. Maybe next month I shouldn't say anything about when I'm OVing.
