I'm going crazy out of my mind! I want to scream, punch a wall, use profanity lol! It's not even funny. I work shifts so we realized that part of our problem is that I O'd away from home last few cycles. So this month I finally got a "TTC-friendly" timetable that keeps me home on the important days. Everything has been going ok on my end. I have temped, checked CM, taken my prenatal supplements consistently. I finally get a positive OPK and happily show DH, who has been a great cheerleader for me. Then DH comes up with the whole "I'm too stressed to do the BD" line. What????! Now?!! Today?!! Oh c'mon!!! This is day 2 of +Ve OPK and DH won't DTD! And he really can't. I've tried sweet talk, hard talk, hot talk, name it. His sail is down, completely. Anyone having this problem? I'm so frustrated. My 48hr window is up and for sure we've missed ovulation by now. I'm so mad!

I'm so sorry PetalTouch- I work two jobs and have had a similar problem....I hate how everything has to be timed just right- why did mother nature not give us some gifts that could counteract this craziness! Hang in there and keep venting- it's good for us all to hear so we can learn and support each other!

Gosh..thanks for responding. I was thinking I gave TMI :) Well DH was having an inexplicable bout of 'BDphobia'. It still beats me how what to me is good news so we can DTD with a confidence, could cause such an opposite reaction on him. Oh how I wished we could self-impregnate lol! Well he finally got it together and we managed to do the BD day 3 of ve OPK. My temp chart says i'm still probably fertile so hopefully we caught the egg in time. I really hope for a BFP this time. The anxieties of TTC are beginning to take their toll and we don't want it to ruin an otherwise beautiful thing <3
