POLL: Getting DH 'On Board'
How and when did DH get on board with you to start trying for a baby?
I'll delete my response soon, FYI. . . .
My DH is so sweet - he wants kids someday but someday is ALWAYS 'in a few years'. It cracks me up - it was 'in a few years' last year, and the year before that :)
I'm nearly 29 and he's 31. . .we're financially stable and otherwise VERY ready.
My best friend is pregnant now and it's like a light has been switched on for me. . .I'm SO ready (it's weird to admit that! Until now I was like awww, babies are cute. . .but now I WANT one). . .and DH is too but not really 'on board' with the idea of it actually happening just yet. I mean, if we were to get pregnant today he would be fine with it. . .but actually 'trying'? He's not there.
I mean, I'm starting to come up with crazy stuff in my head like 'if we don't try NOW I'll turn 30 and won't be fertile anymore!' or 'If I'm pregnant at 30 our chance of a Down's baby goes UP! (he's really paranoid about that. . .I have a disabled sister, he has a disabled cousin. . .he also has a speech impediment. . .). Or. . .'It takes a year to get pregnant so if we start now it won't be too late!'
So I'm waiting patiently and trying to hint at him that my clock turned on a *little* sooner than he thought it would. . .waiting so patiently for that day when he says 'hey, let's start trying'. . .
OMG how do you ladies DO IT? !
I'm rationalizing by saying that we need more time as newlyweds and that we haven't traveled to Europe together yet. . .oy. STUPID HORMONES.
