DH and I tried 3 days ago, but he couldn’t finish. I should O today or tomorrow so I wanted to try again last night, but he was too tired.
I feel so defeated and silly for getting my hopes up. I’ve decided to stop trying to temp and I’ll just track my cycles. I put too much pressure on myself. I wanted a chance at a “miracle” baby, but it’s not going to happen.
I don’t know if DH will be able to ejaculate any time soon. The fear of failure makes me hesitant to even try. I’m afraid to go to a specialist because I don’t think they will take us seriously because of his condition. I don’t know what to do anymore. Thanks for listening.

Aww, don’t worry. In yours (and DH’s) situation, these things are going to take time. I’m not TTC till September, but I know how frustrated you must be. Wishing your DH a very, very speedy recovery and FX for next month 🙂

@Macintosh: It’s only natural to feel defeated, it’s ok to be upset and disappointed. You two have been through so much and although things are looking up, the journey is a long one. I hope and pray that your husband will find healing and you two will be able to make it work naturally. If you do have to see a specialist, and you find one that doesn’t give you anything but 100% support, then find one that will. There is no reason to not take your situation seriously and help you in any way possible. You’ll find nothing but support here on the bee and I’m happy you’re back and sharing your journey with us!! So many people are pulling for you!!

Aw I’m sorry hun. This may be TMI, but since his accident has he been able to ejaculate at all? If not, as frustrating as it is going to be, you’re going to just have to start slow and start with getting him to be able to ejaculate in some way – whether it be intercourse or other means.
Wishing you all the best. I have no doubt in my mind you’ll get your miracle baby. It might just take a little longer than you’d hope.

I wouldn’t worry– maybe you ovulated early, or will ovulate late this month!
Either way, I am SURE you will get your miracle baby!
