Everyone in my family my husband included treat me like glass when babies are involved. They watch what they say and if anyone asks when me and my husband are going to try first words are usually don’t get her worked up! Because I’m 22 And baby fever for two years. We both just got better paying jobs and are moving back in with my parents to save money. My husband will say things like oh by the time we buy a house you will be pregnant. But when we visited my cuz who had a baby yesterday people asked amd he’s like oh I don’t know five years? My mom knows he is just being a brat but she always turns to me cause I get sad and goes don’t get her started or will give him a talking to. I feel like i am losing my mind

Just take a deep breath! I think all newlyweds truly experience this. Have you and your husband talked about when you will start trying? I know I told my parents and everyone that we were going to wait about 2-5 years after getting married….while my husband and I knew it would be earlier than that. But we just wanted to give them an answer so we could start trying in ‘peace’.

I agree with @Hippos:, you and DH should have a talk to make sure you are on the same page with the timeline so when in public you can understand he is just saying that to get people to stop asking. Something else to consider, try not to involve your mom or family too much and discourage her from giving your husband a ‘talking to’. The marriage is between you two and allowing her to intervene on your behalf isn’t going to strengthen that bond.

We agreed to wait til our one year june 2014 to evaluate where we r. If we decide to start trying we still have to wait another six months cause my gyno wants to get me on prenatels to hopefully make it easier on me (my overies are covered in cysts and she said that would make it harder) and he was fine with it so we tell friends two years but by family he’s like idk five years and I think its just to protect us from being bothered and protect me since he knows my fear of not being able to get pregnant but it still sucks when he says it
