My husband and I are pretty new, but we've known eachother for some time. We got married in January, had dated for about two years before that, and had been friends for about six years before dating. He is in the navy, and left for basic training soon after we'd started dating. I movied in with him about a year ago when he pcs'd up to New York, I'm from Nevada, so that was a big move. Anyways, back to the rant. We have talked about this before, many times. No kids. Thirty-ish sounds like a good age to us. His birthday was last week, he just turned 25. He is out to sea right now, haven't seen his beautiful face for over a month. Thank goodness this is only a "mini"-deployment and he'll be home soon enough. Right, right. That rant I was on. So we have talked about this. More times than I can count. No kids, not yet. He calls last week when they ported up somewhere else, and just out of the blue after all the "Hey, honey, I miss you, Love you" all that good stuff. Asks me if I've found any good thrift store finds, and then BLAM!!! "I think we should have kids." Like it's nothing!!! What the dilly?!? So I ask him when? "When I get home." Huh? When did this happen? No, thank you. You're going to come home knock me up, then leave for who knows how long. "Babe, I thought we were waiting for shore duty?" To which he replies that he would like to get a head start so that it's already cute when he get's home...... I have a chicken and I can't even handle myself! "I thought you wanted a rabbit?" "I do, but I want a kid, too" Ugh!! I'm hoping that this is fleeting. That it might just be his "25 life crisis". I guess I'll find out soon enough when I see him again. But, from what little I know of his schedule, if I were to get knocked up when he comes home, I would be alone through most of the pregnancy and I think the little booger would be about 6-8 weeks when he would back.. So, again, I say "No, thank you"
