Hi chick, i am in a similar predicament to yourself. Although, we are both still living at home whilst saving for a mortage! I found trying to convince him into it made him worse. He was stubborn about it, and it made us argue alot! I was pushing him and he didnt like it.
Is there anybody you are close to having a baby soon? BEcause this seems to have helped my partner come around to the idea. and think..'well actually, if they can do it...i know we deffinatley can!'try not to push him too much hun. Easier said than done...believe me i know.xxxxx

I have been with my hubby for 9 years now. We wanted a baby when I turned 18 but sense prevailed and off I trotted to Uni. A degree and postgrad later I landed what I thought was my perfect job - lost it after a year in Nov 2012. Got another job in Nov 2010. Made redundant from that job April 2012. Got another job and left for a new job in June 2012. Each time we have decided to try for a baby, he says the same as your partner - about stability etc. This time round, we are married, have a house of our own, car, money in the bank and both have good jobs. Come June I am throwing cauition to the wind and we're going to start trying.
Everyone is different, especially men when it comes to babies. Until we were married I felt like it was only me that wanted abbay as hubby rarely spoke about it and when i raised to topic he'd change the subject. Now he openly talks about it like when I see babies on tv etc and comment about this is how ours will be.
Just talk to your partner and tell him how you feel. I know my hubby didnt understand until I broke down and said all I want in life now is his baby.
Like my mother-in-law says, there's never a good time to have a baby.
Good luck x
