Hi there! Sorry to hear about your ectopic, best wishes of babies to you this coming May. We are waiting until May as well, both of us agreed that we wanted to wait until we're married, so fingers crossed for a honeymoon baby!
Insurance and timing of the birth. We originally were waiting because I'm in grad school then we were due to start and lost maternity insurance. We are waiting until insurance will kick I before I'm out of the first trimester and we also do not want to be due in Nov/Dec or even early Jan because of the holiday season. Oh and I both have holiday bdays so we are trying to avoid that will our own LOs.
We're waiting because we need to move first, we're in a 2 bedroom apartment atm and want/need to move to somewhere larger. We're hoping to move this summer or fall. If we haven't moved by our TTC date, we're going to postpone TTC until we move.
Also I go back to work from my current maternity leave in June so if I got pregnant in October I'd be back a full year before my next maternity leave. I'm getting a promotion upon returning to work so I want to be back for a significant amount of time before leaving for another year.
And I want 2 years between Callum and our second. If we were to get pregnant in October then they'd be pretty much exactly 2 years apart.
