I am remarried with three children from previous marriage, ages 5, 10, and 11.
DH vacillated on whether or not to have one of our 'own'. He informed me that he was getting vasectomy on Friday, four days away. He was doing this for me, yes, I know. I'm approaching 35, am a smoker, and have been taking care of the contraception for many years....Allowing something to possibly happen in the next five years considering the risks involved for all seemed irresponsible, and it was now or never.
We knew, because we looked it up, that I would be most likely to conceive on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. And he agreed that if I were to get pregnant during that time, he would be happy, too, as this was his first, last, and only chance to have bio offspring.
It also happens that those three days I'd be off work (I have an apt in a major metro area 1.5 hrs away, where I live when I work) and I'd be home, willing, and able.
Tuesday I noticed EWCM. So I called dh and asked him to bring home a couple bottles of something yummy to drink. As I am not a regular booze person, just a few shots did us both in. We had a wild, passionate, fulfilling night of love. That next day, I just 'knew' it worked.
