Hello, I'm Kristi and I am WWT for baby #2. We have a 23 month old son. I always wanted to have 2 kids, but DH is content with 1. So I don't know if I am technically WTT or "Never going to TTC again, and not too happy about it!" I am close to my siblings and hope to give my

Hi Kristi! Welcome to the board! My name is Becki and I'm your CL. I'm 24 and my DH is 26, and we're WTT for our first - not sure when. We've been married two and a half years but we're waiting until he feels ready.

I hope your DH comes around! Is he just "content" with one because he can't imagine another, or actively does not want another at the moment? I think that would be a big difference!

Nice to meet you and I hope to see you around the board! Keep us posted on whether you have more conversations about TTC another and what he says.



Proud CL of Waiting to Try - Thanks for my sig Katie!

I also have a DH who is quite content with 1. Though since the beginning of our relationship I have said I wanted at least 2. So...we are compromising, sort of, right now. :)

Hi Kristi,
Welcome to the board. The women here are great at helping with baby fever. And there are a couple people who have "convinced" their husbands to have another child (like me). I just wrote him a really long candid letter about why I wanted another child and he is now swaying my way on that. He is still only 99% on board but he said he will never be 100% on board, which he also says won't necessarily stop us from trying. Good luck convincing your husband! It can be done :)

Hi Becki. Thanks for the welcome. DH is actively not wanting another child. He has a few reasons.....he didn't enjoy the newborn

Hi Kate! Thanks for giving me some hope! For a while I was o-kay waiting longer to convince DH to TTC again. But with my friends all being preg and my 35th birthday coming up, I'm starting to feel more urgent about it.

LOL...I have always wanted 2 and DH wasn't sure if he wanted any. So I guess we are compromising too.

My Dh told me he also didn't want any, but this was just recently. Though he has known from the beginning I wanted at least 2. If he was listening that is another story.

Welcome =)

I understand girl. When I first met my DH and we talked about kids he said he wasnt having anymore (he already has 2 sons) and I pretty much told him he was wrong, in the nicest way possible. 6 1/2 years later, we have a DS (so thats 3 boys) and I have managed to convince him for ONE more =)

Id let him process that you want another, give him some time then continue to talk to him about it. I am sure he will come around. Good luck! =)
