Bittersweet

Thursday, October 27, 2016

I just got a call from one of my little sisters. She told me she's pregnant again. Her firstborn was born less than a year ago. As much as I'm happy for her, I am frustrated. My husband said we can start trying in December, but I know he's not excited about it. He doesn't even want to talk about it. Nor does he seem to have any sexual desire for me anymore. I'm wondering if that is going to change at all by December. Otherwise, how in the world, am I supposed to get pregnant? Being a mother has been something I have wanted forever. I nurture other people's kids all day long, and as much as I do enjoy that, I really want kids of my own. Of my three younger sisters, one already has two kids and another is now pregnant with her second. I just want it to be my turn. I don't know what else to say. It's got me in a funk right now, and I don't know what to do about it. I can't really talk to my husband, or my sister, so I figured I would write a short blog about it. Maybe someone has something helpful to say.

    I'm so sorry for your situation. It's hard watching those around you getting the thing you long for. emoticon

    Hey girl, this makes me sad, I will pray for you guys. I have no advice, I am not married, but I understand your desire for children, that is all I have ever wanted is to be a mom and wife. I am still waiting for both, and doing my best to trust that God has everything under control. Hugs! emoticon

    Stop, not sup. He is not going to give you what you want. Find another solution. I think you'll figure it out.

    It is NOT your fault, so 'spicing up your sex life' advice is inappropriate at best. If it's a family you want, a husband that shares that vision is a must. If he's not now, he's not going to change. Sup wasting your precious time waiting on someone.

    That's a difficult situation for you. Is there anything troubling your husband that may be affecting his sex drive?

    I'm sorry. What a hard situation for you. Maybe try something new to spice up the sex life?

    I'm sorry. I'm not sure what to say. I will pray for you & your husband to find your way through this. (Hugs)
