Trying to Conceive/ Boring Sex.

By May 13, 2011 - 10:34am

My husband and I have been together for 8 years. We got married 10 months ago. According to his big Italian family, it's time we got pregnant. I've always wanted children, so I don't mind this concept. We started trying 9 months ago and aren't having any luck, but it seems like we don't have fun sex anymore. Pushing for a baby is taking all the fun out of the "pushin". How can we spice things up a bit without it seeming like that was the purpose? He's very sensitive and I don't want him to think I don't like having sex with him, because that IS how he'll take it. But I want to have more fun so it seems less like a chore.

My husband and I tried for 18 months to get pregnant, not the easiest thing to do. Try not to focus on getting pregnant and just focus on having fun. You could say things like, I heard about this new position want to try? Things that suggest that you are just curious, not bored. It's a tough thing to approach, my husband would be offended if I told him our sex was boring, but it can get that way. Initiating sex in a new place or new position may also help without hurting his pride. It can be a long road.
