Things are a little confusing right now so I am trying to be on the boards as much as possible as you guys are really the only people who understand. Long story short, a few months ago DH said he didn't want to try any more because of various reasons and it sent me into a pretty depressed place. We didn't talk much, we fought a lot and stressed out over everything. I did not go back on bcp so I guess we are NTNP???? but I don't know what we are?! It sounds stupid to have to put a label on it, but again I want to make sure we are on the same page.
Today he says to me "We don't need a baby, we need to travel more."
Meanwhile, I am "late" for AF. My longest cycle (since charting in Dec) so far has been 32 days, and today is day 37. And my avg. is 29. Took two tests, one on Saturday, one today and both were BFN. So maybe it's stress?! Anyway, I guess I don't really know whats going on, just trying to figure it out!

Glad to be able to catch up with you again. Can't believe it's been 15 months for you, you never really imagine it's going to take that long. I will be around to chat!

its weird because we are going throught the exact same thing right now. DH said he didnt want to try anymore. and I am really kind of depressed about it. Im actually like I dont know if I can be with you if you dont want kids with me. I want a family. Its like they think its only hard on them. its even harder on us to me. so I suppose we are NTNP either but i dont know whats happening with us either. I know he doesnt want to be around me and we barely spoke over the weekend. it may be stress or you may just be in the early stages of pregnancy and you havent produced enough HCG for a test to pick it up yet.

I get so sad seeing everyone getting what they want. its so disheartening for me. my bday is on August 7 and thats all I really want and to know I wont get it breaks me down so bad.

Yeah I can totally relate... he dropped the bombshell on me on Mother's Day which I told him has pretty much traumatized me forever. It's not that my DH doesn't want kids with me, it's that he doesn't want them right now. I said I understand what you are saying, but when we agreed to start trying way back in November- that is not just something you can take back. Then I'm thinking- what if I am pregnant? Would he/ we even be happy? Would he resent me? Not at all anything I thought I would ever have to think about. So I am starting to think he is just more comfortable if we don't "try" and he would just rather let it happen??? Some guys are so weird that way I guess?
But I will never forget what it felt like to have him take back what he said about trying right now. I was very depressed for about 2 months. I would just go to work and come home and sleep and cry. He didn't get why I had a right to be upset in general or with him. I debated back and forth wheather to go back on BCPs or not. I decided I did not want to do that and whatever will happen will happen.
For me writing about it on here was very theraputic even when I couldn't talk to DH.

Can you explain to me what IUI is because I am still new around here and am not familiar with a lot of things yet.

sure! IUI stands for interuterine insemination. basically, when I get an LH surge or the doctor gives me the HCG trigger shot, I go in with DH and he does his business in a cup and they wash/prep the sample. they select the best spermies and wash all the crude away and then they inject it into my uterus. since I have done several now with no result, I am not sure they help much.. but oh well.
