Hello moms. I am 21 years old and have been married for a little over a year, my husband is 11 years older and has already been married and has two beautiful children back stateside with their mother. When we first started really talking and considering a life together I was a single 19 year old with no desire to have children. Two years later, happily married, active duty military cop stationed in Japan I have been yearning and hurting to have a family with him. I have expressed my thoughts and feelings to him and he understands but says he doesn't want anymore children. I don't think this will be a make-it or break-it with us but I want to know if anyone has any ideas to sway his opinion. He is a great guy and this sounds harsh out of context but he has said 'If we happen to be surprised it would be okay' and when he gets tipsy and the topic of a baby comes up he says 'you're the one stopping it, I keep trying'.. I don't want to skip a few pills during a week I'm fertile and have to act surprised if I get pregnant becuase he doesn't want to be blunt with me. If there are any moms with advice I would greatly appreciate it.
