Q&A: Getting pregnant: Keeping sex fun?

After two or so days of Baby Dance, DH is like, "I need a break for a day or two." He claims he is tired no matter how much he wants a baby. What can I do to help keep him motivated around ovulation time? -brideatbeach

The Bump Expert Time to move into ultra-sensual, ultra-seductive mode. First, try shifting the focus from when it will happen to the fun you get to have making it happen. Get yourselves in the mood. Use candles, music, lingerie, dirty talk, toys, role playing (not all at once) -- whatever it takes to make sex sexy again. Save a few tricks for later so that every time you make love (even if it's three times in one day) there's a special edge that keeps it hot. And remember, the more relaxed you are, the more likely you are to orgasm. Besides the obvious benefit, having an orgasm after your husband may actually help you conceive... and that's not a deal we'd turn down.

I try to suprise my guy. Like when he's cooking dinner I'll go and love up on him. Then after dinner we can have dessert.

Make sure you're not having sex too often, either. Around your fertile days, you really only want to have sex every other day to give his swimmers time to get a new high count. If you're doing the deed too much, you have a less likely chance of getting pregnant because he'll have a lower sperm count! During my ovulation time, my husband and I commit to having sex on only even-numbered days or odd-numbered days, depending on the day I ovulate, until my fertile days are over, when we can forget about the "scheduled sex" and go back to spontaneity! Hope that helps, and good luck!

When it comes to my fertile times and ovulation, I don't even bother telling DH when that is. We've decided to conceive and that's all he needs to know right now. If I overload him on the details, he gets overwhelmed and feels pressure to perform and he gets it in his head that it's a chore that we have to do it and it takes the fun out of it for him. I keep track on my own and since he's not thinking about my fertility he thinks I'm being spontaneous and he feels spoiled because he's "getting it" so often and the pressure is off him.

I try to keep it fun. And not fill our time in the bedroom with constant comments on baby making. We both know the basic pointers to help with conception such as position - so we try and keep time in the bedroom enjoyable and about US. And if we're blessed with a pregnancy then all the better of course! :)

Q&A: Getting pregnant: Keeping sex fun?

With my DH I had mentioned at some point the info about having sex only every other day to give time for sperm to build up...then the next cycle about a week before I was due to ovulate, I was in the mood, but he was worried that we should wait to give his swimmers time to build up--for maximum effect, so he said we should wait until I ovulated to do anything! Sometimes I wish he didn't pay such close attention to my cycle so he wouldn't worry so much about that :) (I did explain that it's only about waiting 48 hours in between--not a week!)

I recently read that a new study shows that "more is more" and there is no need to wait every other day during ovulation.

I find giving my DH too much details actually has the opposite effect and puts him off sex, even though he wanted the baby. What worked for me was a particular lingerie I knew he liked plus me starting on top, he loves that position. We also used these sex dice and had running bets on who could come up with the most creative positions to start of with... it kept it fun

Q&A: Getting pregnant: Keeping sex fun?

I just thought I'd add something because I keep seeing people suggesting and posting to have sex every other day. While people with certain fertility issues may be told by their doctor to skip days, it's pretty much not going to improve chances. "You can have sex 10 times a day and it won't result in pregnancy unless it's timed to coincide with ovulation. And even if you've timed things correctly, the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) reports that a major study found no difference in pregnancy rates between couples who had sex daily and those who had sex every other day."

You can always ask for help from London escorts if you want to keep things fun. But of course such a choice is not everyone to follow, but mainly people who feel comfortable with it.

Q&A: Getting pregnant: Keeping sex fun?

When me and my partner were trying to have our first baby, it took us quite a lot of... work. However, we always tried to make sex fun and naughty, so we don't get frustrated and it doesn't change into a pain, rather than pleasure. We used to go online on http://www.livesex.com/ and watch porn videos that would turn us on and turn us kinky. Always works.

It depends on the months of your pregnancy,if the baby is not very big ,I think you can have sex but if when 5 or 6 months older,it will do harm to you and the baby,what's more,it will not get happy for your sex in this suituation.chnlove com

I agree with Elizabeth070503 ! Keeping your man in the dark is about the smartest thing you can do. I regret telling my husband everything about when I ovulate. It gets in his head and I know he is thinking about it and he feels extra pressure to deliver.

Q&A: Getting pregnant: Keeping sex fun?

I just started charting after our miscarriage. What if we don't exactly know when i ovulate. It makes it harder to figure out when to have sex. Sometimes its actually hard to even get me in the mood.

Q&A: Getting pregnant: Keeping sex fun?

I would suggest wearing something skimpy. Just make sure you don't wear the same thing every time. My dh comes home from work exhausted but If I'm dressed all sexy, he will be ready to go. Seriously, it works like a charm!
