Men are just like women IMO. The idea of having a little one excites them and scares the crap out of the at the same time. I think he is testing the waters so he can gauge your response. I wouldn’t be surprised if he brought it up a few more times, either. It’s an exciting time I bet!

I would totally take that conversation as a sign that he’s hinting towards it! 

Exciting! 🙂

@muckmoo1: Honestly, if the idea of kids right now scares you, don’t try right away. When we first got married, I wasn’t in the kids/baby/trying mindset. I really truly didn’t feel ready. It wasn’t until we were married a year that it started to set in. By this time, we set up a timeline for ourselves. Also, do you want to drink at your friend’s wedding? Keep that in mind too.

When we first got married Hubs said he wanted to wait at least 3 years after we got married before TTC. I started getting baby fever around 8 months, and we moved up our timeline to start trying this September. Then he kept moving it up a little more over time (which I totally didn’t mind), until we started trying on our 1st anniversary. We were lucky and it didn’t take long. Baby is due in December.

They want a child, they just don’t want to admit it.  Darling Husband was on the ‘let’s wait a while after the wedding’ bandwagon, but the minute we were married he started dropping hints that he was ready.

When someone pesters us with the baby question, he acts like he wants nothing to do with it in the near future. And when I brought it up, he tried to pretend like he is cool with whatever I decide.  But you should have seen his face when I said let’s try soon.

I don’t know any one who is truly ready for a baby ! lol

Thats a great and comforting aspect to know that he is recpetive to the idea of children.

Seems like you should take some time to evaluate your own feelings towards the whole baby craze, so you guys can talk about it together and it will be a positive thing. Good luck with everything regardless! So cute 🙂

Haha, yeah they are weird.  I recently mentioned something about our fall timeline and he bursted out “What exactly do you mean by fall?! That could be anything from September to November!”  And then he added more quietly “I’m not pushing, I’m just curious…”
