My OH is waiting for me to catch up to him, if he had his way I'd come off the pill now and we'd 'see what happens' (NTNP).

Whereas I'm looking at our current situation (living at my mum's, working part time, him unemployed / on the sick) and for me it isn't enough that we're emotionally ready for a baby I want us to be financially ready (or at least in a stronger position than we are now). It's not just about what we want, it's about what the baby will need when they come along. They don't need mummy crying every time she checks her bank balance.

I'm lucky in that my oh is the one desperate to ttc, if he had his way we'd already be trying. It was me that said we'd try in May and he jumped at the chance as he thought I'd keep him waiting longer like I did the first time!

Me & my dh want the same things, just I'm more impatient than he is! Ha ha! He's happy to wait til the timing is right - me on the other hand want it NOW! In fact yesterday is too long to wait!

Mine's getting there. He's gone from "We have to be married at least 5 years first" to "I think 3 years being married would be enough" to "I'm really starting to warm up to the idea of having a baby". For me, it's just been constantly (and slyly) bringing up the subject at the right times, like after we've just visited with one of our friends who has a baby and I'll say "Honey, you were so good with ____ tonight! That baby just loves you! I can't wait until we can have our own..." And I always make sure I word it so it's very clear that HE'S the one who's making us wait and that that ball is 100% in his court.

We are definately not on the same page. We were NTNP and I was charting. Then I got a new job and we moved to a new state and he said he wants to get settled first. But who knows how long that will take. He knows I'm always reading about ttc ect. We aren't using any bc but just the pull out method and I can help hoping an accident will happen

We sort of are... sort of are NOT on the same page.
I am planning for April 2012 because I will graduate one month later and I know it will take a few months to even get pregnant.
I am worried that my hubby will not be on the same page about this and if that is the case I might not be too happy. But we will see

We're not on the same page at all. I want another baby but not until Brandon is at least 2 - 3. But he is dead against the idea. I just have to hope that in time he might change his mind

my hubby seems to be on the same page,i think because it took us a while to concieve our 1st he understands why i want to start TTC#2 when brodie is about 1.also because im a nurse in a specialist ward i want my 2 close together so that i can stay part time till they would both be at school,rather than pt for a while then ft again having another baby then going pt again.i love my job and dont want to muck about the ward to much,so my hubby understands this-and he is loving being a daddy!

We're not on the same page. He wants another baby when we're better off financially, if ever I want another baby NOW!

We are and aren't on the same page we both really want a LO but OH wants us to wait until I have finished in my exams so Aug-2012 but I don't see the problem with us NTNP sooner as I do not believe we will get pg straight away and I am worried about our age (so is he)

So we will see I am working on him and hoping he will change his mind
