There's been alot of talk lately in the TTC section about partners attitudes. So I wanted to ask those dads-to-be directly - how do you feel about trying to start a family? Has your attitude towards your wife/fiance/girlfriend changed? Has it changed how you feel about sex? How much do you understand about the process of making a baby. For those of you who have been trying for an extended period how do you cope with it? Are your hurt/angry/frustrated that it's taking longer? How do you support your partner through it? I'd just really like to hear what is like to be trying for a baby from a male's point of view.

Starting a family is going to be awesome. My attitude towards my wife has never changed, I love her with all my heart and always will. I'm not sure how to answer the attitude towards sex question. I know a little bit about the process of having baby, having two pregnant women and a woman who recently had a baby in my office. I have to say, none of them enjoy pregnancy, in fact it seems like hard work!
We are more in the process of getting ready to try, as opposed to the trying phase, but it's only days away. I'm looking forward to fatherhood, but at the same time I'm a bit scared. I think that'd be a natural outlook on it though. I think Bec will make a fantastic mum.
Hope it's a boy! But a girl would be cool too.

Jane, I ran your questions past my husband and had the shock of my life. Dave doesn't seem to realise that Sam was planned laugh.gif He seems to think it all just happened by accident ohmy.gif

His answers show that my husband is exceptionally vague. We definately did plan it. I made sure we had sex around the time I was likely to ovulate and recall doing bicycle kicks in the air. I am in shock that Dave just thinks it was a happy accident, when it was planned.

how do you feel about trying to start a family? we didn't even plan it, it was a happy accident

Has your attitude towards your wife/fiance/girlfriend changed? maybe a little bit - she has alot more patience than i thought she had.
alot more able to withstand sleep deprivation than i am

i respect her more

Has it changed how you feel about sex?
has what changed? we haven't tried for a baby

How much do you understand about the process of making a baby. For those of you who have been trying for an extended period how do you cope with it?quite well informed - we didn't try for a baby we had a baby by accident.

Like Hannah, I asked my husband the same questions and his answers are below.

He clearly wasn't feeling particuarly chatty. rolleyes.gif I on the other hand could have written essay answers to each of these!

how do you feel about trying to start a family? I feel good, happy, comfortable - yeah.

Has your attitude towards your wife/fiance/girlfriend changed? It hasn't changed.

Has it changed how you feel about sex? Maybe a shade. Sex now is different as it is not just an act of pleasure, we are trying to have a baby as well.

How much do you understand about the process of making a baby. I understand it quite well.
