I completely disagree with mrsraggle! Not in an argumentative way or anything, but knowing the joy that babies bring, not only to the parents, but to the aunties, uncles, grandparents, counsins........ everyone who will be involved in the babies life, makes me want it more! My dd is almost 15 months now, and her personality is really shining through now, and I feel I NEED to give her siblings to see her reach her full potential!

Having a child has not reduced the broodiness in me at all! Ha ha! I want more!

As for explaining to OH, I have no advice at all. Me & my hubby have always wanted the same things in life, so I knew it would happen. Just like it will happen to you too. You just have to be patient! Maybe when friends have babies, include your OH in the visit and the cuddles etc, and when he's holding/playing with the LO, tell him how good he is at it. I think alot of men think they'll be rubbish at it, or think they can't do it, so maybe a few prods in the right direction will do the trick! It might still take a while, but the better you make him feel about it, the sooner he might feel ready!
