And I really, really, really don't want to be pregnant anytime soon. I really need to get my TCOYF book back from my SIL and read the section on charting while breast feeding again.
I just took the postpartum NFP class, and they basically told us if you have any signs of fertility, DONT DTD! You have to have 4 dry days. Since I have only had a handful of dry days since the bleeding stopped, we've been using condoms and I think I'm going to either get an IUD or take the mini pill. I really don't want to be pregnant anytime soon either!!
But my sex drive sort of sucks too. I'm having some PPD problems, and my DH is annoying the hell out of me. I love him but also feel it's almost just platonic, which is weird because I've always had a higher sex drive then him. Problem is that although he doesn't push me to do it or anything, he really gets meaner and meaner the longer we go without...which is really unlike his regular personality...he doesn't mean to, and honestly doesn't even notice, but I do!! Even though I know it's hormonal for him too (testosterone build up, etc) that makes me want to DTD even less.
