Hmm if he has said it again maybe it is his way of giving you the green light but you really need the know for sure as it is a big thing! Think you need to get him to confirm if he does want to try but taking it easy or not??

Men are so damn confusing!

My OH now everytime anything baby related comes on the TV or around near us says to me oh look a baby is it making you more broody! he knows it is so why bring it up and rub it in!! grrrr

I would be skeptical, but I'm in the same boat. I think DH is taking baby steps, he knows prevention is in his hands now. I finish my pills next week and I'm SOO excited! I'm set for TTC in May, but I hope sooner!

Oh hun that just sounds like such a confusing situation! Especially if he's said it twice!
Maybe he's ready but doesn't want to have the responsibility of being the one who gets to decide all by himself?
When will you get the chance to talk to him properly about it?

Thanks all
Yeah hes said it about 5 times in the past year but everytime he says it i just get confused about it. I wont get to talk to him properly about it until i see him over the weekend.....The past few days we have spoken about babies and how it would be etc and he even agreed on a girls name which in the past hes not really been keen to talk about. He said it again last night about me taking control when the broodiness gets too much for me, which as i said just confuses me

oooh... that is confusing!! At first I thought maybe he was just asking for sex. (sometimes I think men like to do that when we're broody.. you know 'practice' and all that).
But to make the same comment twice... interesting!

Well.. Do it! Jump him without protection, but tell him first or during... or well, if you usually use condoms you probably don't have to tell him (I can't remember if you were using BCP/contraceptives) and see what happens from there!
He asked for it, right?

Hey oddsocks, this is a real tough one. My hubby said to me once that he didn't want to know about all the TTC and stuff and just to let me know when I was pregnant, leaving the discussion up to me!

I think guys just don't get how we feel, and are prob scared about the whole baby making thing.

I guess it depends on your reasons for waiting. We both want to try but know that life will be much less stressful if we pay off the debt first. If your reasons for waiting aren't that important maybe you should go for it?

Good luck

Thanks both lu-is yeah we use condoms so he would obviously know if we wasnt protected, he knows my dates roughly so he'd know when abouts i was ovulating aswell. And fumbles the main important reason we were waiting was because he said he wasnt ready for us to have a baby, so thats why him saying that has confused me lol men eh?

men indeed!! I bet this is his way preparing for it if you know what I mean.

I think you should totally go for it then! but let it be his move, when you are dtd make it his choice to get the condoms maybe.
