Okay, I've only posted here once before, and it was a while ago. Let me reintroduce myself: I'm Julia, and I have a darling baby girl whom I conceived while trying my darndest for a boy. Girls run very heavily in both my and DH's families (4 boys and 21 girls between all our siblings' kids). We really want a boy this time.
We've planned on TTC this summer, and I've been charting. I used the Shettles method before, and I'm pretty sure I got the timing right. Maybe it will work this time? I'm getting so nervous because the more I learn about GD, the more overwhelmed I feel. There's so much to do, and no guarantees in the end. Now I just looked at the Chinese calendar, which says I can't conceive a boy until November! I was hoping to TTC in August. I've never been into that stuff, but now I'm worried.
On top of it all, DH told me last week that there's too much pressure on him to perform and he'd rather be kept out of the loop. He still wants to try for a boy, but he doesn't want to know about it. He'd rather not even know we made the attempt until after I get a BFP. That doesn't seem fair to me, but he stresses majorly about baby-making, and apparently that's bad if you want a boy. I'm usually the calm one, but now that he's bailed, I feel like it's all on me.
Thanks for listening, and sorry to whine. This has all been far in the future until I suddenly realized it's pretty much summer now and we'll be TTC soon. Yes, I'm excited for another baby, but it's overwhelming too.
