Hi,
I'm Sophia. Havent been on the boards in a long time.

Was wondering how old some of the ladies are on the WTT boards.

I am 37 and my hubby is 53.

Hubby keeps putting me off, both of us on second marriage. I have never had children before and only want 1.

Its become very frustrating and I am not the type to "trick" him.

Anyway, was wondering if anyone else had the same situation.

Thank you!

Hi Sophia! Welcome to the board, and I hope your DH comes around pronto! Does he have kids? How long have you been married?

I'm younger on this board, 24, most of the ladies are in their late 20s/early 30s. Everyone's life is unique, but most of us can relate to trying to convince husbands!

Hi Sophia,

Welcome to the board. I'm 27 and I have 20 month old twins. DH and I just went though an early miscarriage during the first month we were TTC, so we're waiting again for that reason.

He told me honestly though that he wasn't 100% on board for a third child anyway. I pretty much talked him into it over a few months before we started. I wouldn't trick him either (although it's tempting, isn't it?). I wanted to leave it completely up to him since I knew for sure that I wanted another child and he didn't know yet. He is pretty much 99% on board now but wants to wait at least a month.

The way I "convinced" him was to talk about why I wanted another child. I wrote a letter to him explaining why and then also wrote out how it could work with our particular situation. He is a very logically thinking person and likes to know that the logistics will work out.

Anyway, welcome. I hope your wait here isn't very long.

Hi Sophia! Welcome to the board!

I love Kate's suggestion of writing a letter. Sometimes we just need to get through our men!! I'm 28 and DH is 41, so we don't want to wait any longer either.

Hi Sophia,

I'm Sara and I'm 31-DH is 27. We have one son, who is almost 11 months old. I can understand not wanting to wait any longer and not wanting to trick your DH. I want to have at least 2 more children, and would rather have them before I turn 40. DH, being 4 years younger, is in no hurry at all.

It would be so easy to trick him into a pregnancy-I'm charting and have to remind DH when he needs to use protection-but I really want him to be as happy and excited about the pregnancy as I would be.

So frustrating!
