Tiredness and Sex
DH and I have a problem. We have a 4 month old baby and a 3 yo. I work full-time.
He has a habit of coming in to be "romantic" about 1/2 hour after I go to sleep at night. This usually results in me either accommodating him and hoping it ends quickly so I can go to sleep, or I get so angry at being awakened that I lash out at him. He then is hurt and sulks for a while.
When I try to discuss it with him (and I have, rarely, inititated sex during the day), he shuts me out. Any suggestions?
I am getting anywhere from 5-7 hours of sleep a night, which is not enough for me. When I got to sleep at night, I am exhausted (and then up a few times in the night with my baby). I'd like him to understand that I need sleep and it is precious to me, but he just thinks I'm trying to avoid having sex.
