Try IVF? I dunno...it's tough to explain. Imagine if you were told you & your DH could DTD 6 times (not do it like bunnies for 6 cycles; you can go for it 6 times) & if you didn't get pg, you could give up or you could spend several thousand dollars on an unpleasant, invasive procedure that has, at best, about a 50% success rate; those are your only options...WWYD?

Gourmet BDing? What's that? Sounds kinky.

I heard that phrase in the documentary The Great Sperm Race. It is exactly what it sounds like and the theory was that men have a much larger "load" when they have gourmet sex. The longer it lasts and the more exciting it is for him, the more sperm gets sent through the tubes and released.....which ups the chances for conceiving. I've been really trying to make things "gourmet" for the increased sperm factor, but also to keep things exciting so that my DH doesn't feel like this baby making mission is work and takes priority over us enjoying the moment.

It can be as kinky as you want it to be

Hahaha! That reminds me of that friends episode. "so you have hot girls on one hand and your favorite ice cream in the other. What do you do?" And I think joey says "put your hands together!" Lol!
