Excited about getting pregnant but also SCARED OUT OF MY MIND!!!

I'm 29yrs old, and as you can see by the subject line, I'm both excited and scared out of my mind about pregnancy. My boyfriend and I have been together for 7.5 years, and have recently made the decision that it's time for children to make an appearance in our lives. Since coming to this mutual agreement, I haven't been able to think about anything else. The day we discussed starting a family involved coming up with names...and how we're going to rearrange our apartment. I've been so excited about it, that I've told all of my family that we're going to be trying in the near future.

QUESTION

Hi Sam,
We've been trying now for two years to have a baby. At this point I've undergone multiple tests with no answers. My doctor has recommended my husband be tested for fertility issues.

His immediate response seems to be that I'm somehow questioning his sexual abilities. Trust me -- THAT part is fine!

How is it that women are supposed to go through the testing and that's ok, but the same isn't true for guys?

QUESTION

My partner and I have decided we’re ready to start our family. The rest of our friends aren't settling down yet. His guy friends still chasing girls in bars and mine too focused on finding "Mr. Right." Do you think this sounds like a recipe for a problem in our relationship?

Is there a way to navigate to other couples building their families? I mentioned that to my partner and neither of us have no clue where to even connect with these people.

Wanting to Start a Family Now

QUESTION

We've been married for three years. Before marriage my husband and I did discuss wanting to have a family someday (at least three kids).

Now each time now that I try to talk about trying it seems that he has an excuse of why "now" isn't a good time. I'm in my thirties and am concerned about running into problems conceiving.

I feel resentful as his reasons are selfish. It would interfere with our travel plans, (those I'd give up easily), wanting to buy a bigger house (we have 3 bedrooms), and now even citing "the economy."

Any advice to help me understand?
