    We both want kids but SO is OBSESSED. He loves children. He loves to coach them, play with them, babysit them, hold them. Everything. He’s even considered opening a daycare because he just adores children. He always asks if we can make a baby now.

    my Boyfriend or Best Friend is dying for kids.  He wants them like yesterday.  I know for me it will be harder to have since I have PCOS.  He thinks I can just pop a magically pill and be pregnant. While yes that can work in some cases, I don’t want to rely on that mentality and then be let down when it doesn’t happen. I keep reminding him about the statistics and details about trying to conceive & have PCOS.

    I too was against having kids in general until I met him and then I just see him interact babies/children and it’s just too darn cute. But we will at least have fun trying on our own for now Tongue out to see what happens

    @ttn133: It’s cute until he says things like LETS GO MAKE A BABY RIGHT NOW! And I say… Um empty ring finger over here!

    I’ve never been a big fan of kids but Fiance loves them. If it were up to me, we wouldn’t have any but children are important to him so it looks like thats not going to happen.

    He says he’s keen and ready but it’s me that talks about it non-stop!

    It’s totally me. I want them badly.  I think he’ll be fine once we have them (if we can) but his experience isn’t with babies it’s with toddlers and older kids.  He’s gonna be great tho.

    We were both on the same page (and still are, thankfully!) but I was more conscious of the biology and being a 30-something couple so I probably influenced the timing more than he did – he would have waited a few more months than we did but I was worried that we’d have trouble…not an issue now!

    I want kids. And I will be ready to have a baby well before he is ready! He is 27 and we do not plan on trying for another 4+ years. Even at that point, when he will be 31+, I still don’t think he’s going to be fully ready!

    We both want kids, but I think I want them NOW and he wants them in like… 5 years. I said we’ll compromise and TTC right after the wedding, but I don’t think he likes my logic. 😉

    @PitBulLover: My Fiance is 29 and he STILL wants to wait another 5 years. I’m not sure if he’ll ever actually “be ready”.

    @TinyTina: Im really glad to hear that actually! I feel like SO many couples and FIs/SOs/husbands from the bee are so eager to have children and I’m always like “who are these men!?” My mom said that most men are never truly ready to have a baby until the baby actually arrives!

    I would say it’s fairly even with us…although some days I want them like YESTERDAY.

    Both of us talk about them often.  (almost every day) We have picked out names, we talked about how to do the nursery, we have talked about parenting style.

    We are just wating for the wedding till we actually start really TTC.  Fiance will be 34 and I will be 32 when we get married.  I think the biological clock is ticking in both of our ears.

    *note to all the girls who are concerend their men aren’t ready.  Fiance has always said he wanted them but was never ready for them then one day he was like. Peach, I’m ready for kids now.   UGH MEN! LOL
