More hugs, less sex

It sounds weird, but we started spending a lot more time cuddling and hugging, instead of just having sex all the time. It helped. Also, I stopped telling my husband when I was ovulated. I was excited about my BBT chart, but he wasn't so into it. Not telling him WHY I was trying to seduce him helped a LOT!
