You've talked it over and you're finally ready to start a family.
You've done your research, you're in a great place financially, your relationship is stronger than ever, and you're not getting any younger. You want to create a legacy...and you're kinda curious what a blend of your DNA would look like.
Now before you get all carried away in a wave of love, sex and emotions...Let's Talk!
Are there any underlying issues or conflicts that haven't been addressed?
How will you handle intimacy issues, lack of sleep, and overall disconnect after baby arrives?
Do you know each other's preferences for parenting and disciplining?
Do you know how each other handles stress and frustration?
Do you know how to support each other when one of you is feeling off?
Have you established boundaries for family and friends after baby is born?
What if your kid is a nightmare (hahahaha) but seriously...what if?
I don't want to scare you guys...but babies take a lot of work, and no amount of preparation can prepare you for intense commitment and emotional fatigue that comes with your little bundle of joy. Think of it this way...the same way you'll need to baby-proof your house, you'll also need to baby-proof your marriage to make sure you both can withstand all the unforeseen stresses of parenthood as a couple and as individuals.
