Maybe my DH should stop working from home, or I should go stay with his mom every once in awhile

We can be testing buddies.

Yep, it's true. That's where all those post deployment surprise babies come from in men who have had vasectomies. The vasectomy is no match for the 8 month build up or whatever :-)

Re: Anyone else have trouble BDing so often while TTCing?

Yep totally normal. I have a difficult time getting in the mood sometimes and I could go a long time without DTD, but DH struggles with that. He doesn't need to do it every day but he needs it at least 2x a week, preferably more. He still has that teenage brain, and a lot of times, that teenage mojo (as long as its not too late at night because he works all day). I can totally understand how ttc can be difficult, and tiring lol.

DH and I killed ourselves going for everyday. We were both stressed, unhappy, and his contribution did not seem as much as when there were a few days between. After 12 months with no luck we went to every 2 to 3 days and bam that month we conceived.
