just talk to him and tell him that you just want a little part of him inside you... And then act depressed (maybe cry from time to time, so he knows you want this so bad)... And he'll come around sooner than you think, because he cares about you very much and the last thing he wants to do is see you upset day and night.

It worked from me - and now we're trying every month.

So I wish you all the best and sendin you lots of baby dust!

Don't guilt him into it though. It should be a mutual decision. If he agrees only for your sake, he might resent it later on if he wasn't emotionally ready to become a father. Babies are hard work, and can put a lot of strain on a relationship.

Just be honest with him. Let him know how important this is to you, but allow him time to come around to the idea on his own.

Good luck.

You definately don't want to push him too hard. If he isn't ready, then wait but let him know that you don't have forever. You don't want to have a child with someone who really doesn't want one.

Just so I can clarify myself here a little. I didn't really pressure my husband into having a baby. I did act depressed, just because i've been waiting for this moment for 7 years because he wasn't ready. We do have what we want in life. He wanted to try in 2 years, then he changed his mind and wanted to try in 2 months (when we're in lake tahoe), but I just told him that it might take us few month or even 2 years to get pregnant... And he decided that I was right, and now we're trying every month. Last month we didn't succeed, but we'll see this month... We need all the baby dust we can get!



Thanx!

That's down right scandalous. I'd be ashamed of myself if I did something like that. I bet if you told him your tactics he'd be a might bit pissed!

My husband and I talked long and hard about having a baby. For awhile he reallyl didn't want one and that really upset me. Eventually though I stopped pushing and he all of the sudden decided that he wanted a lil munchkin too! Now he is the one that is going all baby crazy. That didn't happen though until I shut up and he was around my sisters little boys alot.

If he's not ready then trying to coax him is really not the right thing to do right now. Let it be a decision that the both of you agreed on that way no one feels "pushy." pregnancy is something that is very important for both the husband and the wife, but the husband sometimes needs longer to "settle" in as far as marriage goes before he wants to have a baby. I wish the both of you good luck! Smile

Speaking from experience ...
I pushed my husband into having a baby and even though I will NEVER regret having my princess, I wish I could of approached it a little better. He obviously wasn't ready then ,,, Thank God now he's the BEST father in the world and LOVES her unconditionally, it was hard at the beginning cause it was me, me, and only me that took care of her nonstop.

Just tell him how u feel and give him time. In the mean time just hang around friends or family members that have babies and kids as much as possible.

I want a baby 2
I am in a similar situation. With my 1st husband we tried for 5 years. I think when I met my husband now that I was so sad and upset that not having babies made the pain seem less. Now I am almost 30 and i want a baby so bad. My husband and I agreed when we were dating no kids. No I feel a viod and I want one. I want one so bad it hurts. I dont know what to do. Exspecailly because I know he would be a good dad and the only reason that he doesnt is because when he was 16 his dad told him kids riun your life. I know his dad meant that for the time not for life lol. But I am so sad now that i want one. It is my fault I changed my mind but still hoping he comes around. He is 40.
