Just thought I'd start a little string about our DHs who put up with our crazy TTC routines and hormones!

My DH has been so attentive since we started TTC. I think I mentioned before that every night before we go to sleep, he puts his head on my stomach. Last night, he said, "I just know we have the start to a little baby in there." I'm not as confident as he is, but it just made me feel so warm and fuzzy right before I fell asleep.

When I got my second temp spike this morning and with my nipples being so sore, I emailed him a link to my chart for the first time. He responded back: All signs point to the good. Charts are very detailed. Let's hope you're late!

Flash back even a year ago, and he would have been saying, "I hope you're not late!"

I just can't wait to have a baby with him.

Awwww Junie, so sweet.

I totally feel like I hit the jackpot with my DH. He says little things here and there that indicate his excitement and make me so happy. He's just wonderful. I can't recall anything specific that he has done or said but he is just being cute in general. hahaha and he loves all the BDing...hahaha!

awwwwwwww thats soooooooooooo cute!

we are at the point where I want to just give up... (we have been ttc for over 2 years now...) and he keeps saying stuff like "lets just keep trying honey" and "I dont want to give up yet" it really does melt my heart that he wants a baby just as bad as I do... but it also stings a bit too... because I want to give him a baby sooooooooooooo bad it hurts! and I cant... I LOVE that he wants a baby! and I just KNOW he will be an AMAZING father!

You all have such sweet DH's. My SO isn't quite so into the TTC talk but he has come a long way since we first started. It used to be I couldn't even mention anything about my cycles or tests without him being grossed out and now it's just normal everyday conversation.

I just realized I was so un-PC. Not all of us are married! Kudos to our SOs, too, even if they just make baby steps.

My DH has left me a note in my lunchbox saying that he can't wait until I'm pregnant. He also wrote a really cute note in the card he gave me for our 1st anniversary saying he can't wait to be a daddy and knows I'll be a great mommy

I really can NOT wait to for him to be a daddy

wow you guys are lucky!! Mine is not as forthcoming with his feelings...but honestly, due to the fact that, unfortunately, most of our fertility issues are male fertility...I can see why he's losing hope.

Oh he'll say sweet things here and there, but it's few and far between...although we do always talk about how our kids will be one day!

My DF is the same way...Soo cute. He lays on my belly and says " Goodnite (insert a random baby name), I know you are in there." lol never the same name twice. I believe he may be more excited about it than me. He always states how he wants a Lil girl so bad and pokes his lip out like a 5 yr old...lol I even have him reading "Taking Control Of Your Fertility". He read some while I was at work and texted and said this book is really good..ha. His enthusiasm really gets me excited and very positive about this journey we are about to begin

Awww. That is super cute.

My DH is really excited as well, but I think he's getting less-excited with all the detailed TTC talk, so I'm trying to lay off that a little bit.

He's also not complaining about all the BD-ing

Yeah, I've learned that they really don't care so much about our CM. But the BDing, on the other hand, is a good trade-off!

Mine is pretty good about listening to me ramble on about random birthing stories and how things work in a women's body. The other day before he left to go hunting he said bye to me and patted my stomach and said "bye wee one" we are not pregnant yet but hoping soon!

DH is the love of my life. We call a potential baby a "pup" and when we're in the 2ww, he talks to my belly and says, "Cling, little pup, cling!" It's the kooky humor we have.

All these cute stories are so heart warming.

I told my DH that I was having O pain this morning. He was so cute, he rubbed my stomach and said, "Alright egg, I sent my best boys in after you." hahaha Ahhh I just love him!

To add another funny DH moment.... last night we were discussing my O pain and my DH breaks into song (this is not uncommon) using TTC words.....maybe I'm talking about it a bit much hahaha! Wish I could remember the tune he was singing to but he made all the words rhyme by adding "ation" to all of them.....
egg-ation, zygot-ation, fallop-ation, ova-ation. I think it started with "no menstruation" ....he can be a serious nut sometimes!

He likes to take songs and add his name to them so I get serenaded quite often.
