It was something along the lines of: I’m ‘old’ because you dragged out getting married for years. We are starting when we’ve been married one year.

He didn’t have a lot of choice barring withholding, lol. I don’t think either of us was 100% ready. I’m not sure anyone ever really is. But time was a’wastin’. I did get checked out at the gyno and drank green smoothies in prep but that’s about it.

First Child:  I was more interested in TTC than him, but it went like this-

Me: “How do you feel about not using condoms anymore starting on our wedding night?”

Him: “Yay!”

2nd Child:  He started asking me when I wanted to try for a second one when our daughter was around a year.  I told him I wasn’t ready yet, even though we had said we would want two close together.  I said I wanted to wait until after our next big vacation and our daughter was 2 and a half.  So that’s what we did.

We have decided to start trying in Sept! We’ve known we wanted children for a long time (married 5 years, together for 11) but are both freelancers and needed to feel really confident in our career paths and finances before we felt ready. I also had to go through a very difficult medication taper of a med that is very unsafe for pregnancy. That journey is finally complete as of last month and I looked at my Darling Husband and said “I’m so so ready to have a baby with you” and he hugged me and said “me too!” We’re both out of town at different times through the summer, like directly on top of my fertile window, so we decided Sept is the go month!

This was in 2018:

Me: I’m ovulating, we should just try once and see what happens (jokingly, because I knew he wasn’t ready)

Him: Well, I’ve been thinking that I’m not ready right now, but I think that towards the end of this year I’ll be ready to go. How does October sound to start trying?

Me: * happy panic *

I really didn’t see it coming! I thought he’d need a couple more years to mentally prepare. We had already talked about kids in the future and were on the same page about wanting them, so at that point I was just kind of waiting for him to be ready for it!
