I’m feeling sorry for myself today. I’m sitting here in my living room dreading the inevitable argument that will occur when I try to get my husband in the shower. I’m going to be ovulating in a few days and all I want is one or 2 chances to try this cycle. I don’t even know if DH can ejaculate yet. He’s switched to a new antidepressant cause the old one may have been causing sexual side effects.
We haven’t been intimate in a couple weeks because he’s been really grumpy and I’ve been exhausted. I’m also terrified that he won’t be able to finish and I’ll be disappointed. My SIL’s due date is in 2 weeks. When I went shopping today I kept seeing pregnant women everywhere.
I just want it to be our turn. End rant.

I know how you feel! I won’t even go into all of the details and planning it takes for FI and I TTC. Try it when you have two women and no male!

I might be going against the grain here but I think it might be a good time to look at this.
You said you haven’t been Intimate in weeks (and yes I have followed your story) your husbands overcome amazing odds. I don’t see how adding the pressure of TTC is good? Especially since he doesn’t even know if he can ejaculate at this point in time. You guys have Faced more In Your marriage than most of us will ever know. TTC is a very stressful & hard time on any couple / especially men with the expectation that they must do the ‘deed’ when the time is right.
Obviously you guys know what’s best for you. & seeing other gets what you want is always hard. It just concerns me to see you frustrated at him about it when you admit you haven’t been intimate in weeks and he’s still struggling to find the right antidepressant.
I really dont mean to sound like a downer or pessimistic I truly do not. & I wish you guys nothing but the. Best of luck in whatever path you and your husband are headed down. It’s just a different point of view I have.

@MrsHoneyC: Trust me, I’m not putting any pressure on him to TTC. I know its not possible to BD on a schedule with our current situation. I just want a chance, something to I hope for. I’m sick of feeling hopeless.

I really feel for you and your rant is completely understandable. You are such a strong woman and I can’t imagine going thru what you and your family have endured. I am keeping you in my thoughts. I hope that you are able to have the baby (or babies) of your dreams!
