Does anyone else's husband get frustrated with TTC? We've only been trying about 9 months this time, and he hasn't said or done anything expressing frustration until today. I've been kind of down the past couple of weeks, because our schedules have been hectic, and we haven't had much time together alone. And I've been trying to be affectionate, and I have been gently hinting at verbalizing that I need affection, and tonight was just the last straw that just broke the camel's back! I don't want to be graphic or anything, but I was trying to start some action with him earlier this afternoon, and forgot about something we had to be to in an hour. My hubby reminded me of it & then also promised we would get busy when we got back home.
So after we went to the thing we had to go to, we rented a movie he wanted to watch and ate what he wanted for dinner, and I stayed awake and watched this horrible action movie with him, but apparently fell asleep during the last 20 minutes or so. Soooo, my hubby woke me up and told me I had fallen asleep, and he told me to go to bed, and he would be in there, but that he had to shower first. So I was waiting in bed for him, and then found that he had already taken care of himself in the shower--if you know what I mean...and I was so confused!!
And I argued with him, because I was upset over it. I was waiting for him...and he told me that he's sick of trying to have a baby, and that he doesn't even want kids anymore because he hates trying. And we aren't even really putting much pressure on trying...this is the first month I've even been doing ovulation tests, and that doesn't even include him--the only part that really includes him is the getting busy, and then being disappointed too when AF shows up each month.
I know I should be more supportive for him, because I know he does want a baby, and I know he's just frustrated, but I don't know how to be supportive right now...my feelings are just really hurt, and I really wish he could understand me right now. I know he only said these things out of frustration tonight. Does anyone have any advice, or any similar experiences? Is this kind of reaction normal? Should I be worried?
