littlej, a week wait is no problem. No need to rush to see Dr Wu Just to share, she said this year she's not going anywhere during Xmas. Last year and the past, usually she's gone during this festive period.
I know what you mean on making him look like a machine....we try to spice things up a little though during the BD phase so at least I dont feel so bad for him. Now that I'm preggie, I told him "sinseh says we cannot do homework for next 2-3months". He gives me a look like he rather be a machine. LOL.
Dont think too much into it. Just go slow with the process and it may be more enjoyable than just a "chore".
