So, my daughter just turned 2 middle of May. I went on the depo shot as soon as I could after she was born and had my last shot Aug of 2010. I just recently got my period back which means, my body is getting back to basics and I am ovulating again. My goal was to be pregnant by her 2nd birthday because I wanted my kids around 2 years apart. My husband wanted them 3 years or longer apart. Well he's getting his wish. The thing is, when I was on or just off b.c. he was all for the "practicing" part of trying to have a baby. Now that I told him I got my first period and I may be ovulating again, he has totally backed off. I've said things to him to try to turn him on-doesn't glance my direction, walked into the room naked after a hot steamy shower-doesn't flinch. Seriously? Am I not trying hard enough? I've also got settle things out there but I know guys don't pick up on settle things. I know he wants another child, but I'm at the point thinking he really wants them like 5 years apart and I'm not ok with that. I'd like to ask him what he's really thinking now that the possibility is out there that I could become pregnant but not really want to hear what his answer is. Going back to the practicing thing, it always seemed like I was never in the mood and he did ask me at one point in time if I was still attracted to him. Ok, anyone who's been on depo knows that crap messes you up and I didn't recongnize that until after I was on it for a while...then we decided to get off to start trying again. I feel much more myself and wouldn't trade him for the world. With our 6 year anniversary coming up and a babysitter ready, I'm hoping for some us time...we'll see how that goes.
I dont where I'm going with this but maybe just a place to write it down. Thoughts of encouragement would be great or just thoughts on the situation are welcome. Thanks for anything.
