I didn't know exactly where I should post this, but I just felt I had to get it out.
My DH and I have agreed to have a kid about 4 years ago. He didn't necessarily want another child, but I told him from the beginning what I want and we were able to agree to it. He's a very blunt man, not very emotional, etc (think it was because of the Marines for his demeanor).
This may sound cruel or crude, but I kinda figured that during this process I'd be on my own with things. I would be the one interested in baby stuff, names, boy or girl talks, conceiving, etc. But to my surprise DH has been very on board with this.
The last couple times of BD'ing, he's been wanting to be on top because of gravity and thrusting. And he's even wanting it more than normal.
I was exhausted yesterday and wasn't really in the mood. I just wanted to sleep, but DH wanted to do it because we want a baby.
He even said "shouldn't we be like doing it every other day?"...
He's been very interested in picking things out. He even called up his cousin (who has a boy) and asked her to hold her baby things for us. And he told me to call my sister up (who has a girl) for her to hold her girl things for us.
I kinda think that maybe all of his "anti-baby" talk and jokes before was just a show... and that's he come around to the idea, even though everything isn't perfect.
I remember talking to him about babies and he flat out said "Carley, you are the woman I want a baby with, why does it have to be now?". That was about a month ago, but the fact that he said that just really surprised me.
He is one of those guys: all big and bad and unemotional on the outside, but a total softy on the inside... and after 5 years of being together, I still be surprised by these acts.
It's funny, my mom and him have a joke with each other... he only has a feeling... A feeling... and when his feeling gets hurt.... hahaha! Like he only has 1...
Anyways, thanks for reading my ramble post... I am just happy that I am not doing this by myself and that he is with me 100%!
