- Wedding: May 2013
My husband and I just got married this past May and we are TTC! YAY! We have been discussing this for about 6 months before the wedding and my husband really started getting “baby fever” about two months before the wedding but understood that I preferred to wait to start trying until after the wedding because we already paid for our all-inclusive, adult only honeymoon and it was my first time out of the country so I really wanted to enjoy. We had a great time; started TTC right away and definitely relaxed; it was awesome! Well, I didn’t end up getting pregnant last month but after the wedding as many of us know it’s still kind of stressful tying up all the loose ends, getting out Thank You’s and getting back in the swing of things so I’m really not worried about it at all (I just turned 30 and I am healthy and active). I don’t think my husband is worried either just more eager than anything; he definitely has “baby fever”; tracking my cycle more than me, checking in to make sure I am taking my prenatal pills and so on. I think it’s great that he is so involved and I think it shows he will make a great father but my concern is he is getting too wrapped up in trying and I don’t want to take away from the experience; almost makes it feel like we have to have sex not want to if that makes sense. Don’t get me wrong I love trying and all but when we are watching tv or something comments like “lets head up to bed so we can get to our baby making” takes away a little. I have dropped a few comments about it here and there to try to let him know that it will happen when it’s time, not to stress about it but I still get those small comments. Has anyone else had a situation similar to this; how do you handle? Or just leave alone? He’s excited and shows a great quality!
Quick Side Note: We also have a 6 year old so the age difference was a small concern at one point but now we know she will be like a little mommy as well! We had a set back with TTC when we found out she had a spinal tumor that needed immediate surgery and she needed 110% of our attention for a while. She is great now, thankfully but it was a long road! So, when we do get pregnant I will be under close care in case this happens again we can catch and monitor so putting all these pieces together makes us both want to get ready and make sure that the baby is 100% healthy!
