want to have a baby but...
Bulley1030 posted:
Ok wives out there I am 22 my DH is 24 we have been married over a year now, I have finished college before we got married and by 20 I had my career and my DH found his career shortly after we wed. I am truly ready and wanting to be a mother. I have this strong emotional pull that I know I am meant to be a mom. my DH definitely wants kids but.... he wants to wait about 3-4 years. he wants to be closer to 30 before kids. he doesn't feel ready. has anyone had this indecision happen to them? how do I get myself to realize that waiting is better when there is only one reason i can think of why we should? we do not have a house yet. with two dogs I can see how having a house would be better. financially were fine and our relationship has already been through a lot so I know we have a strong foundation for the stress of a baby and child. any advice?? please help! wanting a baby is eating away at me
