Set a Date(ish)

Earlier this week my husband and I sat down and talked, openly and honestly, about when we want to begin trying to have a baby. If you have read any of my previous posts, you will remember that I’ve talked a lot about my desire to have a baby. Needless to say, I have intense baby fever!

In the past, my husband and I have had many conversations about starting a family, but it felt like we were on different pages. I wanted to make sure that we want to have children for the right reasons. Sometimes there can be pressure for couples to have children, because it is what is expected. I didn’t want my husband to ever feel pressured if he isn’t ready to start yet.

However, after our conversation, it turns out he has been warming up to the idea, and is ready to start in the Spring! I am very excited, and nervous at the same time. Having a baby is, as you know, a huge change. Nothing will ever be the same. However, we are both finally ready!

  1. It is the opposite in our house. I am ready for a family but my wife wants to wait another 2 or 3 years. She is at the beginning of her career though so I understand where she is coming from. Cheers!

  2. My husband and I were not on the same page for about a year of our marriage as far as starting a family. I know this can be a struggle to want a baby and have a husband who is just not quite ready yet. Good luck in the spring!
