Well we use BOM. My husband knows just the basics of it but he doesn't want to read the book or even read the little quick run down of it that you can find on the website. He's fine w/ it but a couple times he's questioned me as to why we couldn't BD and I tried to explain and tell him to go learn more about it but he just said fine, he trusts me.

Kinda of annoying, how can I get him to take more of an active role?

We've learned 3 different kinds of NFP before I became a teacher myself. He took all the classes too and did all the charting when we did Creighton. The rules/concepts didn't really sink in until he started doing the charting, so that was cool. Somewhere along the line we got out of the habit of him doing the charting, but he still understands it all.

Nick just asks me where I am essentially. He doesn't understand it that well. He does understand some things at least though.

Jordan just asks where I am in my cycle. But, before we got pregnant, he actually started to look at my chart to see how it was looking. We'll see how he does when I start up again in a few weeks.

exactly my situation, except on the BOM and getting him to take a more active role. I don't have a problem doing the charting all on my own. He's very finicky when it comes to bodily functions/how stuff works. He would rather remain blissfully ignorant than learn all what's going on in my body. Whereas I am completely intrigued with everything. I know I'm not going to get him to actively participate, and I'm fine with that!

When avoiding DH is very passive. He is very grumbly and dislikes the waiting. But he knows it works and he lives with it, unhappily.

When TTC - he is obsessing with me on the color of my OPK lines and when to start BDing and all that. Then the steam dies down sometime around ovulation and I am like....hello, lets keep up the BDing so we can catch this egg!

I have to say, I hate it when dh gets grumbly around o time, it is just annoying, not like I can control when o is going to happen or that it makes a baby a possibility! this cycle he was very non-grumbly, it was so refreshing!

Ha, I think compared to now...(since it took forever to establish my BIP and even so I'm having constant changes) my DH would welcome a normal cycle!
