I thought it would be fun last night to just talk about names... DH is ok with it for awhile, but said we should be thinking about other things like how we are going to tell our familes we are pg again.. which I'm not even yet....just started ttc last month.

I'm ok with telling them, he's scared.. I am not planning on telling them about ttc, but when I'm actually pg. We have 2 beautiful children, DS and DD, so when you have one of each everyone just expects you to be done, well we're not so our families will just have to get over it!! (thats my feelings) anyways, just had to vent! I'm just so excited about DH saying it was ok to start to try, but the excitement is going to be taken out of it if DH can't be excited too! If all is is thinking about is how our "families" will think about it..... :-/

hello!! i feel for you...us and names...my dh doesnt like many of the names that i do and i dont like a lot of the names he does...i was fortunate with my 2 girls-his stepfather picked out odd name and his mom picked out ydd name. both those people have passed away so i dont have anyone in my corner telling him that ezekial blake is a good name!! LOL or that paige lenore is gorgeous...i have the family that is not too supportive about me having any more children. my sister just had a baby in november-she thinks that im stupid for even ttc-and i think my mom knows were ttc but shes trying to dissuade me...my father isnt even worth mentioning-according to him-my sister and i shouldnt even have the kids we have...so i understand where your dh is coming from too..and just keep a

Thanks Melissa! Its just hard being so excited about something and not being able to share ... but that's ok! I don't need any negativity anyway! :) when I conceive they'll find out when I feel time!

I feel for you! With my last pregnancy, I was so wary of other's comments that I didn't tell anyone until we were almost through the first trimester, and then I just told my mom and let her tell the rest of the family. I just did not need to hear any negativity, because I was happy about it. Maybe you should tell them in a way that you don't need to hear their initial responses. If they try to be negative later on, just cut them off. This your family and your life, their opinions don't really matter. ((HUGS))

Thank-you for your comment. I do just have to realize that it is our decision, not anyone elses! I can be excited! And I'm sure DH will be too, especially when I get the BFP :)
