I'm very much new to this group. DH and I have been pretty well actively WTT since we've been together using avoidance with withdrawal. Lately, though, our ducks have really started to fall into their rows, and the topic of babies is coming up more and more frequently. I've been desperately broody and in want of a baby for the duration of our marriage so far, but I always understood that both of us have to be on board and certain criteria must be met. DH is the pragmatic one who's always steadfastly looked toward the criteria before any other more baser desires.

Well anyways, now it seems that DH is getting to that point where we're about ready to just go for it. I'm not sure if we're going to be NTNP or actively TTC, but for the first time ever since we've been together, he did not pull out (sorry if tmi >.> ) one day last week, and furthermore said he figured he'd 'give me what I want', whatever that's supposed to mean. I admit to being a little confused about the whole thing, but I think his own broodiness is finally starting to catch up with him.

I haven't had the nerve quite yet to start an open discussion with him about that night in particular. Not really sure how to go about that without sounding greedy or needy or too excited that it may be what I think it may be. I, of course, don't want to scare him off or make him second-guess anything if he's finally about to come around! So right now, I'm in an agony of waiting till our next BD to see what happens then...

Anywho. Just venting a little and providing some background. I'll probably be on this group a lot.

When I wanted children, I eased my husband's mind by saying that it may happen right away, but probably wouldn't happen before 6 months from now, and it could take up to a year. How old did you want to be with kids trying to get you to play?

It just so happened it took a solid year to get pregnant...and lose it. Then another full year to get pregnant with our first child. It took so long that he never bothers to use protection now. I get pregnant easily, but I've lost 8 out of the 10 I conceived. He's not worried about too many children, and I'm not either. If it happens again, it'll happen, and he'll get fixed cause I'm not doing anything else to my body. BC is on him. I don't mind having 4-5 children. lol So if he wants to be lazy, that's fine.

I hope conception happens a lot quicker for you!
