Waiting is killing me!

Well first off, I don’t see how the ex-wife having a baby or potentially getting engaged should mean that your engagement will be pushed off. It shouldn’t have any bearing on what you and your partner do in your own relationship. 

If you’ve only been waiting a month since he spoke to your parents, that’s not such a long time but I get how when you’re excited for something it can feel like forever. Have you had an open discussion about concrete timelines? I’d start there so you know you’re both on the same page regarding the time you’re willing to wait and confirming that the ex-wife’s relationship milestones should not impact your own. Tell him you were hoping for a summer proposal and see how the conversation goes after that, but be open to his personal preferences as well. It’s a joint decision. And it’s not even the end of July yet, so it could happen. 

It sounds like your partner is taking all the steps towards engagement and marrying you, but talk to him! A productive conversation will hopefully help your anxiety. Other bees will have more advice about managing waiting jitters, I’m sure.
