Im personally WTT because i feel im not ready yet, among other reasons. I had a MMC in sept 2012 and i still feel emotionally raw. I also think that paranoia has set in, since i have a substantial complicated medical history. Part of me feels like i rather be uneplained unsuccessful than knowingly unsuccessful. Its hard WWT though when all i want, and all i think about is babies. but its obvious that it will be highly unlikley to happen without medical intervention. So right now im forcing myself to do other things, until i can face what may come from a visit to a specialist.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I went through almost the same feelings once I had mine in April. What I realized is that it's better to know and get treated than to sit idly by while the problem continues to exist. It could be something so simple, yet it could be something that might take a bit more intervention, like you said. It's smart though that you are waiting until you are emotionally prepared. You are in my prayers...

Wow, didn't realise that there were so many people in similar positions to myself! Hugs to all!
For me, two miscarriages, a fear of medical investigations into the cause of my miscarriages, still being at university, not being married or even engaged yet, and both of us still living with parents. Jeez, that is a lot really. Hopefully we are moving in together come May-June, when I graduate, and by then hopefully I will be brave enough to go for testing (I suffer from health anxiety)
Oh, and, I want boyfriend to stop smoking before we try. Boyfriend wants to stop smoking before we try also. Sadly, he doesn't really want to stop smoking at the minute as he knows there are too many factors up in the air at the minute. So that has a big part to play (he isn't a heavy smoker as it is)

I have read that it's ideal to be on prenatals for at least 3 months before TTC, so I'm waiting for that... but I will be 34 next month (DH is 38) so I am feeling super impatient. I know that things get harder in your 30's so I hate waiting to not even know if I will get pregnant easily or not.

Best of luck to all you ladies! Great reasons.

I'm waiting because I would like to have a home with my fiance first, and I wouldn't want to be more than 1-2 months along at our wedding. Gotta fit in that dress!

A better job wouldn't hurt either.

I'm waiting because my OH and I are not married yet.. not even engaged. We talking about getting married and having children constantly, i'm just waiting for him to pop the question. Once we get married we will probably start TTC. We've lived together for a bit now. I'm becoming impatient!!

I know how you're feeling! This is also why my SO and I are not TTC yet, because we're not even engaged at the moment. I want the security and stability of marriage. We've lived together for three years, talk about it all the time, and he wants to start trying (which makes it really hard for me to say no), but then what? I've been holding off on my work's expensive health plan (that doesn't even cover much), since I could be covered under his if we get married. No insurance isn't good for a pregnant lady.

He's mentioned getting eloped if I did get pregnant, but I want to enjoy some time as an engaged and then married couple first. I want to be able to travel together without the complications. I want marriage to be something we do because we love each other, not because we're becoming parents.

Another reason we're WTT is for financial reasons. This is a lot more minor, but we're saving to buy a house within the next year. Where we live is really cheap in rent (we rent from family) because they're giving us this opportunity to save.

I really feel you on this. We have some debt we want to resolve but it will take a couple years. I really don't want to wait 3 more years to start TTC.. I will see what will happen after we get married, whenever that is!

Wow, so sorry for all the trouble you are going through. One day when that little baby is in your arms, it will be all worth it.

We are waiting because my husband is currently deployed to Afghanistan. Got a little over a week.
