Pheromones!

This is at risk of being a TMI post - so I'm sorry for that! Feel free to click away and come back for a safer post! Or.... you can hang around a read for a while longer.

Regulars will know that me & the hubby are planning for our 4th child, but that I am still on the pill for a while longer (think I have about 5-6 weeks left). Since I had my implant taken out I have been taking the pill but tracking my cycle and recording everything on Fertility Friend. And I have noticed something interesting about our sex life (told you it would be TMI).

I'm sure you'll understand when I say our sex life is not the 24/7 thing it used to be... nearly 12 years together and 3 kids already means that we're happy enough in our relationship to not feel unloved without sex on tap, and face it, with this many small children running about, finding opportunity while we still have energy is tricky too! But we do still HAVE a sex life... and it always seems to happen on the days I would be fertile if I wasn't on the pill. Coincidence?

Well I think not! So I've been reading up on pheromones. It seems that my poor hubby - no matter how tired he might be after a long day at work, or longer day home alone with the kids while I'm working - simply cannot resist me for about 5-8 days of my cycle. He has no idea what my cycle is. The only indication he gets is that I wear underwear as well as my PJ's for a week every so often. In fact I doubt he even notices that! (PJs are a must when you have up to 3 small boys in bed with you who are just toooo interested in what mummy has instead of a winky.)

During this time if I so much as brush past him he is practically panting! He suddenly gets the urge to do loads of housework or DIY too. A subconscious way to try to please me so I may reward him? Who knows. But I like to think so! And I'm defiantly not complaining!! Dinner cooked, washing done, kids to bed, AND some special time with my hubby?

I wish I could bottle the stuff for the rest of the month!
