Maybe it would help if you just agreed to start NTNT? That will give him time to come to grips with it, and hopefully sex won’t start feeling like a chore. Then if it happens, it happens :). It sounds like he is scared of losing his freedom. Anyway, I guess you didn’t come for advice, but I just thought I suggest it.

You sound like an awesome friend- a morning sickness care package? I wish someone would’ve sent me one! You’ll also probably be a great mom, and I’m sorry that you aren’t experiencing it with them exactly as they are. That doesn’t mean you still can’t be a supportive friend (I bet they’ll really appreciate that they aren’t losing a friend just because they’re a little “ahead” with their lives), and then someday they can help you through your experience too!

Good luck either way!

PS: Sorry for not just being a good listener. I always think I have to give advice on this site… 🙁

@LoveHappy: first off, TALK!  talk talk talk! Start talking about WHY he’s freaking out and why he isn’t ready.  Discuss how you feel.  

Believe me, I understand what it’s like being told “yes” then “no” then “yes” then “no”.  Been there, done that, and it SUCKS!!!  Especially when you want a little one!  

good luck and I hope you two get it worked out soon!!!
