If you don’t talk to him then you won’t know. A serious conversation does not have to equal pressure, just say I ‘ve been thinking it could be harder to get prego if we wait to long. Guys never know these things. Also gives him time to get used to the idea!

Yes, you can plan for a baby financially, and yes, it does set everyone up for more success in the long run (at least statistically that is true). People do it all the time without planning, of course. But, I think your husband is smart to want to put the horse before the cart. (as a coworker recently told me: “If you don’t have a down payment for a house prior to having 1-2 kids, you certainly won’t ever have it once you are paying $3400/month for daycare. I don’t care WHAT job you have!”. But, things are expensive to the extreme here, so really, yes, it is about timing and expense to us.

I think if what you really want is a baby sooner rather than later, you need to tell him that instead of just waiting to hear the right answer from him. It sounds like you aren’t doing what you could be to be upfront, honest, and complete in your assertions for wanting a baby sooner.
