Hello to everyone out there.
A little about me:
43 infertile with high blood pressure and other physical ailments
2 failed IVFs
Countless failed IUIs
Moving on to donor eggs. Paid for donor eggs and just waiting for the embryos to be made.
Feel free to become a follower on my journey. I'm at 98 followers now.
Now for those of you that are interested here is a bit more on what I've been doing.
Yay! Started spotting last night. Maybe a new cycle is soon to be here?
I'm learning more about taking back my marriage. Really I hate to admit it but sex is the backbone of a strong marriage. Most infertiles have found this out the hard way.
When men are stressed they need sex more because it is a way for them to dump all their stress and start to think more clearly.
Women want men to meet their emotional needs before sex. But a guy can't do this with a stressed out foggy brain.
Women need to learn to barter with their husband. Yes this can mean sex too, especially sex when dealing with men. If we want something done around the house or for him to fulfill one of our needs we can always promise to give him sex. You'd be surprised at how fast you get what you want from your husband when you make a promise to give him sex. That might sound like I'm manipulating my spouse but I'm not because he is getting what he wants too. He is getting his needs met.
When J and I were undergoing fertility treatments our marriage suffered. I was on so many restrictions that I was miserable and he was miserable. Last year I spent a total of 6 months on full pelvic rest to include bed rest with limited movements. NO SEX!
Now that J and I are going through another planned fertility treatment, this time donor eggs we are taking this little break to find our marriage and find what we need to do to meet each others emotional and physical wants and needs.
J and I both realize that I might end up on bed rest during the upcoming pregnancy. God, please let there be a pregnancy. With my high blood pressure and other physical health issues I won't be meeting his needs all that often if at all. That is the reason we are trying to re-connect now. We know what we will be facing and we want to meet it head on together.
Okay enough rambling.
