Here's the thing. We're older and he has no children of his own. He comes from a family of only two children; his sister has no children either. We've talked about having a child, but I had my tubes tied years ago - and they can't be undone. So our only shot is IVF and we found out that our insurance will cover it. But DH is uncertain. He doesn't want to put me through "anything bad" (as he called it) and he's worried about our ages. I'm 40 and he's 41. He's also worried that as much as he works that it wouldn't be fair to a child for it's dad to not be around.
Truthfully, I'm heartbroken at the thought that he maybe don't want a child at all (I happen to think everyone who can be a good parent, should be . And he definitely would be, he's the most sweet, gentle, loving, kind, supportive, incredible person I've ever known.
I don't know what to say without sounding like I'm pressuring him, and I don't want to do that. Help?
