Deciding To Conceive

My husband and I have been married for about a year and a half, and we’ve been together for three years. After wanting a baby from the moment we got married, my husband decided that he was ready. We both decided that we want at least one before he gets out of the military. I was so excited, it probably took me a week to realize that my husband actually wanted to create a life with me.¬†Every time someone brought up babies, he was so adamant about not having a baby for a long time, I really thought that it was never going to happen. I know, I know, I’m young, we have our whole lives ahead of us, blah blah blah, I don’t need your input, k, thanks :).

So we decided that we would start trying in September, because hubs wants a summer baby. It took me a couple weeks to decide to even tell anyone, because I was waiting for it to come crashing down, I was waiting for him to change his mind, even though I was Pinning baby stuff like I was already pregnant, and I pretty much still am. I have a whole list on Amazon of baby things I want. They’re just ideas for when the actual buying time comes. I swear I feel insane sometimes, and then I have to remind myself that I’m going to be a FTM (fist time mom) and that even though I feel crazy, I’m not. Well, at least not for the early planning, haha.

There’s so many things I’ve thought about! Cloth diapers, breast feeding, co-sleeping, how to tell my father-in-law who doesn’t want to be a grandpa till he’s fifty, which isn’t for a while, and i think it’s our biggest pregnancy worry. We even have a list of names. It may be early, but I’m a FTM, damn it! And I’ll be damned if I don’t prove everyone wrong about whether we’re ready and capable or not!


I’m trying to toughen up for when the time comes for the pelting of asshole comments that I know will come our way once we do get pregnant. But oh I can’t wait, we talk about it, and I love that my husband gets in on the excitement, it makes me even more excited to see his excitement. So i guess my blog will be about me preparing, physically, mentally, and my home for a little Hunter baby.

More to come,
