Want a Baby? This is How You Can Tell Your Husband!

You may have tried to give a lot of subtle hints to your husband that you want a baby but he may have not understood. So it’s time to get rid of the inhibitions and make it crystal clear that you want to be a mommy. So here are a list of ways you can approach your hubby to tell him of your natural desire:

1. Say it Clear and Loud

The simplest yet effective way of telling your partner you want a baby is to just say,“I feel I am ready to become a mother”. But while using this approach you need to be prepared for everything. He may accept it or refuse it. It’s not necessary that he is also ready for it. Try to probe the reasons why he doesn’t want it. Are there any fears?

If yes, discuss them openly with each other. Have all his doubts cleared, and if the answer is still no, give him some time. Handle the situation calmly. Do not force your views on him.

2. Give Him Clues

Express your desire to go to the children’s park just to take a walk. While walking you may discuss kids playing in the park and tell him you would love to visit here again once “we complete our family”. Prepare some dishes which are generally cooked for kids at home. Tell him you want to do it every day for someone.

3. Be Romantic

Plan a romantic night for both of you. Get dressed in the sexiest way and leave him a note at the dinner table saying, “Only you & me, no protection”. He would surely guess that you want a baby.

Get ready in the hottest look and have him praise you. Now tell him you want to be called the “hottest mom” soon.

4. Involve Family or Friends

It could be a good idea, but not always, so make sure your husband would be okay with a third person’s interference. Ask your family members to talk about kids when he is around. Mention the joy of parenthood and how kids bring happiness to their lives. Let him express his views on these first. If he is positive, then you may play a trick by showing you are not much convinced. When he tries to convince you, give a positive response and let him know how passionately you want a baby.

5. Express it Using a Pen

You may write something for him describing the way your relationship started and moved to the next level. End your note with “I want to switch to the next level now” or “I am ready for the next level”.  You may draw some pictures if you are good at art to catch his attention. It may be a baby, a baby gear, a feeding bottle, or just a rough sketch of you both, with a baby. Just put some notes at the house which say, “A daughter, a girlfriend, a wife, and now want to be a…….”

Any of the ideas you use, make sure you are able to deliver your message that you want a baby properly without making him feel offended or upset. If he is not positive about it, keep trying after a break. Try to clear all the doubts in his mind and then just go ahead!
