Doing the Deed

Okay, so I am going to be totally honest.

It's been a long time since Mr. D and I... you know... had non-attempt-to-make-a-baby-s-e-x.  A LONG time. 

So long that it's embarrassing to admit.  

So long that we both can't really believe it's been that long.

So long, honestly, that I can't remember what it's like.

S-e-x for us for the past 4+ years has been a timed, methodical, planned activity with the goal of trying to conceive (there have been a few times sprinkled in that weren't just for baby-making attempts, but they were few and far between).

Now that the baby-making attempts are over, it's time to get back to business.

It's going to be weird to be intimate and NOT have to think about what we've wanted to come from our love-making in the past... a healthy pregnancy and child.

Anyone else had these thoughts?


  1. I hear ya!!!!

    It took almost a year to get back to the old days. I hope it doesn't rake that long for you all!!!!!

  2. Have fun getting back into the groove of doing it 'for fun.' I know it took a while after having Chloe and I'm sure it will take even longer after our boy is here, mainly just finding the time and not being completely exhausted. You'll get there though!
