Talking Trying to get pregnant when he returns - anyone else?

ladies my man and I are going to try and make a baby when he returns. Our youngest is seven.We were trying before he went in. Wish us luck less than a month to go before he comes home!!! IF there is anyone else also trying maybe we can keep in touch and track eachothers progress.

My husband and I definitely want kids, but not until he comes home. He wants to wait until he's at least somewhat financially stable, which I think is a good idea. I can't wait!

We want to have kids someday. After he's out and we are settled into our own place and we're financially able to support more kids. I have a 4 year old, who will be 5 when he gets out. She's enough for the time being.

I have 3 grown up children and 2 grandchildren (starting young runs in my family). My man has two boys. We do not want to have anymore.

Well, at 31 I still have no desire to procreate.

I think of the time, expense, stress, loss of freedom, plus the way this world is going, and I think: NO. And then when I see screaming, ill-behaved kids I think.. NOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!

If I change feelings by 35, I will try. At 35, if I still don't want to try, I am having a tubal ligation. The way I see it, not everyone is cut out to be a mother, and at least I'm responsible enough to know that now is not the time for me.

Crow,

It is a blessing to know what you don't want kids. Better that than to have them and then find out kids aren't your thing. They are funny little things.

Congrats Mel! We're ready to try, part of me is scared because he'll still be in parole - but I'm 39, and he doesn't have any kids. My son from my former marriage will be 13 this month. So, my clock says we need to do it now! But, I think I'd be less stressed if he were not on parole - anybody else feel that way?

Congrats and good luck to all of you ladies that are either having kids or trying. My husband will be home in 3 1/2 months and we decided to leave it in God's hands. We both want kids but weren't sure when we'd start trying for them so we decided just let go and see what happens.

It's weird that I just found this thread becuase I just got a letter from my man asking me about this particular subject. I wrote him back telling him that I think that having a baby should not be our first concern when he comes home. He is going to have a lot on his plate at first. Also I have to have interuterine insemination to be able to become pregnant, so it's something that we have to plan for, not just the old fashioned way.

We initially planned on having them right away, right after we got married, even with him inside, but with all that has gone on it was just too much for us and we thought it might be better just to wait, wait and try maybe after he is settled and has employment, although when he gets here, there is no telling what may happen and I would be so excited, I cannot wait! It will be our first child - for both of us!

Jen, we've wrestled with waiting vs. right away too. You know what I've decided? There will never be a "perfect" time when everything is just right - we both want kids, and know what we are getting into. We've decided right away, after we're married, which may be by September - we're still deciding on that one, probably by September assuming we have enough money for wedding bands! I guess my point is go with your heart - I don't want to wait until things are "perfect" because that day may never come.
