My wife and I have been together for almost 8 years, almost two of them married. Over that time we have had our obstacles both personally and in our relationship. We have started and operate two successful businesses which take a lot of our time, but we still make time for us. We spend much of our time together, we both work out of the house in the same office. It's great, we are very much in love and fall further in daily.


Recently, we have decided that now is the time to have a baby. Personally, I have been observing fiends and family with their children, particularly the guys. They seems to have so much fun with their kids, there is so much love. I have been feeling that I want to feel that for my child. I am totally on board.

We have unprotected sex all the time, I was thinking that one of these baby batches would catch somewhere...Hasn't happened. We bought the fertility sticks, and now I'm having issues? She got a smiley face, game on...right?

We started trying yesterday morning... We get into it, all hot and heavy, we're both loving it, and all of a sudden "he" goes down... What is wrong here.. this hasn't happened before... Sometimes during the day, I cannot perform for whatever reason, I cannot... So we chalked it up to that and went about our normal Sunday together.

After shopping and housework, we decided to watch a movie. We were all cuddled up on the couch, the movie ended, and we decided to move it into the bedroom. I gave her an amazing massage, she loves when I do that, and I enjoy doing it myself because I know she likes it so much. Then we went into some more foreplay, then it was time... No dice... Once again, this has never happened... I found myself positioned over her like a porn star who just finished...but I never got started. I dont know what is wrong with me. She got really upset and walked away.

After talking in our den for a while about the situation, and how we both want a baby, we decided to go to bed, but if I wanted to try, I could. While in bed, I found myself rubbing and caressing her all over. I felt very stimulated, but no action downstairs... Just call it a day...

This morning we woke up and started talking about this weekend, and how it's on me, and how it's all in my head, and she's just waiting for me... I know this is true, but I don't get it. I've never had this problem (unless im drinking whiskey...but they've got a name for that) ,so what the he*l.

We tried again, and nothing, I can get him up and keep him up, but about two minutes into it, he goes down. This is so depressing. I think it's all about the child anxiety. But I feel so ready. I want a kid. We want a kid. I wish I had answers...

We decided to take the rest of the day off when she gets back from a meeting, it's day two of a two day window... We'll see. Wish me luck.
