Re: The post 2WW moan thread.

I totally hear you! How exactly do you ever "stop trying"? If you are having unprotected fun times then you are trying and always thinking it might be your month.

My frustration right now is DH is spending so much time obsessing over work that he isn't in the slightest bit interested in DTD. I feel like I have to beg him for it.

Re: The post 2WW moan thread.

You mama's gotta spice it up! Maybe your men feel frustrated by "trying"? IDK, of coarse I don't know them. I just know my man!! But really, try to enjoy them as much as you try to have a baby

And hugs!! I secretly want another baby sooo bad. And we have been trying to have another baby since we had our last one. I do feel soooo incredibly blessed by the 7 we have. And so people in my life would think we were nuts if they knew how badly we want another! I do not have regular cycles. And I don't have them at all if I am breastfeeding.(which I am passionate about, and so I let them wean when ready)

Although, after our 5th baby, which I weaned at 3 mos b/c she got a feeding tube and was unable to eat by mouth until age 2. Anyway, I didn't get pregnant for 2 years after that. I honestly thought that I was unable to have anymore. But eventually, we had another baby, and another. I said that to say I understand the wait. It is so hard

Puppydog, I really pray you get your BFP soon!!!

Re: The post 2WW moan thread.

Thanks SO much. Each prayer is one closer.

My DH is going through a really rough time at work right now. Let's say opening your own company just after making a really stupid investment makes for a very stressed DH.

He has straight up told me he is too stressed to DTD. I've told him its not up to him. LOL

Definitely prayers out for you...

I hope you won't take this the wrong way but if he says it's too stressful, maybe it's best to back up a bit and refresh? I don't want to see him resent you because it may make it sound like it's not fun anymore for him. This is one reason why I took off one month (last month) because I wanted it to happen when it happened and it was becoming too stressful.

My suggestion is to talk to him and see how he's feeling about all of this and see how both of you can work this out together to make this more enjoyable for both of you.

Re: The post 2WW moan thread.

He doesn't take too much convincing. He wants a baby as much as I do. Its just that he is so worried about finances that his body is being suppressed by his brain. I just remind the body that it can also have a show in.

Re: The post 2WW moan thread.

I hate that I've had two early MCs back to back, but feel guilty about complaining because I have a healthy daughter, and some people have it so much worse.

I hate feeling like I'm being ungrateful, but at th same time the sadness doesn't want to go away

Re: The post 2WW moan thread.

((hugs)) I understand. My DH is supportive and wants another, but doesn't always understand the importance of timing and why I am temping, ect. He doesn't 'get it' why I am so anxious and disappointed each month that we're not pregnant or have an early m/c. I just feel like I can't help it - I so desperately feel that our family is not complete. I figure it's a biological thing.
