It wasn't my intention to mean that I "went behind his back", he knows everything that I do (not being on any BC, reading up on FAM, using OPKs, etc) He just has his own little ways of giving me hints that ihe is ready instead of coming right out and saying I want a baby.

My dh asked to wait a full year after we married to start TTC, because he felt he needed a year to get used to being married (he was 38 and I was 36 when we married). A few months before the year was up, we were talking, and I mentioned that it takes longer to conceive when you're in your late 30s, so he gave me the go-ahead to start at that time. I definitely felt it was important to wait until he was ready, so I didn't put pressure on him.

Once we did start trying, he has been totally supportive, ready to get busy whenever I ask, etc. He did get a little spooked when we conceived the first time, and he was very cautious about being excited when we conceived again after the m/c. Once we got halfway through on this pregnancy, he's been very excited, cutting down on his outside activiities, etc, so he can participate fully.

I would never have started anything unless my DH was fully behind it. The problem would be that he might resent me & the baby if I got pregnant before he was ready.

With that said, he is caving a bit because he wanted to wait 3 more months to start and I only wanted to wait 1 month.
