Thanks ladies. Honestly most of you are just about spot on with him. We had a huge talk last night. He apologized for things he said in the heat of the argument and that he hurt my feelings. He said he is excited about the fact that we both want to have a baby and that there is the possibility of it happening. He just doesn't want everything to be "planned out". So I really think it is that he was having a freak out moment and got scared about what is going to happen when we have a baby and how it will change our relationship. Which I mean I am too, but I know we are strong enough together to get through anything.
We talked about the fact that I wanted to go back on birth control. I really just felt like I should, more than I want to. The way he said things in the fight made me feel like a fool for trying so hard and wanting it so much, and I figured if it wasn't completely off the table, I would still obsess every month. So I thought if I just got back on BC I wouldn't have anything to think about. So when I explained it to him, he said he would hide or throw away BC if he sees it. He really doesn't want me to take the possibility of a baby off the table. Part of me is still really worried that I am going to just obsess still but I am going to have to try really hard to not think about it as much. So as of right now I have decided that me saying I was going to take BC was my way of being angry at him and kind of getting back for the things he said. It was out of spite, and you should never make decisions when you are angry. So I won't be going on BC as of now.
The main reason I wasn't as upset with him and was able to calm down and forgive him, was because he really stepped it up last night to make me feel special on my birthday. He blind folded me and took me to my favorite restaurant for dinner. He bought me a big ol' drink and a delicious meal. And then afterwards is when we had our talk and apologized for the way he was acting. He really just wants us to enjoy each other for now and let the future unfold by itself. Which I totally get, he just explained terribly when we were fighting so I was extremely angry at him. I guess that's what you get for getting into an argument with a half sleeping SO at 1 in the morning.

But seriously, I want to thank you all so very much. Your kind words, wisdom, and advice really helped me see the bigger picture rather than just the fact that he was being mean and I was mad at him. I really have no idea what I would do without you ladies. When they say TTC strains your relationship, they aren't joking. And I have no idea how couples survive without ladies like you giving advice and helping keep my head level. So knowing how much I need all of you and all of your advice, I am not leaving the board if that's okay with everyone. I probably won't be quite as active as I was but I will still be around trying to offer the same support you all offer me.

Okay, so now that I have ventured into "book" territory as BabyX put it, I will end here. Thanks again ladies.

I like your decision. I'm so glad that he treated you so wonderful last night. Taking a step back here and there almost seems like a must when you've been trying for so long. I've done it several times. I'm just so happy that you're going to keep trying and that you will still be hanging around here and there.

yay!! im so happy to hear that you guys figured things out and you wont be leaving! men are so sensitive about things sometimes and they have NO idea how to express it! i say just go with it and still "try" even if he doesnt know it. try not to obsess... maybe stop charting or something.

Yay for talking it over and yay for him stepping up to the plate to give you a great Birthday evening. You guys sound like a very strong couple that communicate great together. It's normal for stress to take over sometimes and cause fights but I think you guys managed this like pro's .

I can imagine it being tough with the obsessing, I am not even TTC yet and I obsess with the idea of it coming. I've been reading on tips to help keep the obsessing down, I'll send you some links by PM. Anyways, glad things are better and that you had a nice Birthday. Happy late Birthday by the way .

Thanks ladies. It was wonderful, I was totally surprised and I think that took me off guard and kind helped me to further calm down, because I knew he was trying at that point. I am not going to chart at all for the next few months. I need to really stick to that too. Its going to be hard, because TTC has really been my life so I have to change my whole routine. You know?

And meld10, it makes me so happy to hear you say you think we communicate well. Sometimes I worry about us and how we fight and everything. We try to talk things out best we can because we feel with the love we have we can get through anything, but sometimes we lose sight of that. I don't believe in giving up and walking away. Once you make a commitment to someone, you stand by it no matter how hard things get. It makes me feel so much to have someone say we communicate well, cause I didn't think we do at all. LOL. But now thinking about it I guess we do.

Sam!! I just saw this! I am wanting to cry just reading this. You are one of my best TTC buddies on here! I agree that you still belong here and whenever you feel like it, you should check in and update us! I think maybe your DH is just stressed and maybe needs a break from the "trying". So many people get their BFPs when they decide not to try. I am praying this happens for you. Please know we are always here to talk and help you!! Please keep in touch ;( I'm so sad. And happy birthday! Even though today wasn't the greatest for you, I hope you took some time to do something special for yourself because you deserve it!

I just saw your update! I am so thankful things got better and that he is still open to a baby. My DH has freak outs too sometimes... I think it stressed them out more than we realize. Take time, relax, and like you said... Enjoy yourselves. I'm so happy your birthday turned out good!!!
Stopped BCP & began TTC in January 2013- no ovulation, no cycles for 3 months
May-July 2013- provera cycles with no ovulation
August/September 2013-50 mg clomid cycles with no ovulation
October 2013- SA revealed low motility--referred to RE
January 2014- DHs repeat SA came back "normal"! I was diagnosed with PCOS
February 2014- IUI #1 on Valentine's Day with 2 mature follicles- BFN

TTC is the HARDEST thing on your relationship! The divorce rate is higher when TTC and you have been doing this a while!
I am glad things are better with SO! I am so sorry things are so rough
But maybe having this line of communication is what ya'll needed!

I am so sorry my sweet friend that you had that fight and on your birthday of all days. By the way, happy belated birthday!!! I am glad though that you two go to sit down and talk everything out. Talking is huge and guys do bottle things up so much. Enjoy your break from here but I wouldn't totally leave all together. You are an awesome young lady and full of such great advice for these ladies on here. Having said that, you know you can call or text me any time. I am usually up at all hours now thanks to frequent potty visits.

Awh thanks Sarah, that was so sweet! And I won't be leaving totally. Just trying to focus more on everyone else and not me. I can obsess about their TWW instead of mine.
