Baby Fat: 10 Things Men Learn While Trying to Make a Baby

By  | 

We all know it takes two to tango.  However it’s hard to deny that by nature most of the “thinking about baby making” falls to the woman.  But men aren’t immune to the whole process, right?  Right??

CLICK on the short video above to see what my husband has to say about it and what, if anything, has changed for him since we started trying.  And then see if my Top 10 list matches your own!

Top Ten Things Men Learn While Trying To Make a Baby

1. Not much changes for them.


2. There is an uptick for sex on demand.


3. Other than that not much changes for them.


4. No matter how often they ask, women still don’t know exactly when they ovulate.


5. A lot of female medical jargon is now casually tossed around – and they know none of it requires much more from them than a “Really?” and “Wow”.


6. One week a month they are going to get a lot of sex, no matter what idiotic thing they do or say.


7. Opportunities to sit in hot tubs present themselves like never before – which they can’t take advantage of.


8. Not much else changes for them.


9. When suggesting a future ski trip, vacation abroad or activity with an excessive amount of partying men must take a concerned pause when their wife says “But I might be pregnant then” – before they ask again.


10. If a man’s wife does an Internet show about getting pregnant, people will ask him constantly if he is reallytrying to get his wife pregnant.*

    People are asking…if he’s really trying to get you pregnant? I have to be honest, that’s the most idiotic thing I have read all day. Those people need shinkicks. Shinkicks all around.

    And ending the video with the cat was a smart move. That man obviously has quality genetic material. Good choice.

    I have an 8 week cycle (yup you read that right. a period every two months!) so I have no idea when along that line I actually pop an egg. This means lots of sexy sex for my husband!

      whoa! you definitely win for cycle related confusion. good luck to you! I’m sure you’re husband has a skip in his step.

      LOL yeah he loves it when I’m like HEY LET’S BANG!

      It’s even more confusing because MK was conceived on a normal timetable. Had a period, she was conceived about 17? days later.

    Except when it happens the very first time you try. Then it sucks, because it’s like “what happened to all that guaranteed sex for a few months?”

    And then for the second kid when even just thinking about trying for number two seems to have been enough for conception.

    Or was it just me…
