lol I don't want a 9 year gap, I wanted like a 2-3 year gap. The 2 year gap is out the window and if I want a 3 year one I have to get cracking.. even if I have my next in 9 years, I'll only be 30... but I don't want to 'restart' after so much time has gone past if that makes sense?

but I said I wasn't having another until we got married because if we have another child we could never afford a wedding, sure we could go get married but I want the whole thing, a wedding at a church, a reception, a dress I love, maybe even a honeymoon.

And I'm also back in school now.. if we have another I won't have time for my studies really.. I'll qualify for a certificate in the fall probably but my diploma will be an additional year probably..

This is the exact situation we are in..I want a wedding in the next couple of years and my uni course doesn't finish until May 2013 but I only wanted a 2 year gap at most really. It's so frustrating trying to work out what to do for the best

I know EXACTLY what you mean. Hubby wants to have a college degree, but he keeps putting it off by skipping semesters or dropping classes and it is getting old FAST. My health is not the best either.. In a way, I'm glad we waited a couple of years, BUT I'm ready. Some men are scared to grow up, and feel they won't get to do all the things they wanted to.

My husband could stand to wait a while but there isn't a real reason anymore for us to wait. I think he's at the point of "why not" which is the closest he'll probably be until I get a BFP.

I'm in almost the same position as the two of you. I don't have a child already (m/c at 15w in Sept) but I desperately want one. Right now, my studies are relatively easy to manage. However, next summer, I will be slammed with work. And that will continue till I graduate in May 2013. And then I will be looking for a job/working hard to prove myself.
So I feel like it's now or never. (Not exactly. It's now or don't try until Summer of 2014.) I don't even want to spend time thinking about WTT for 4 more years!

My husband has the same outlook on getting pregnant. When I talk about possibly trying after the first of the year, he just kind of shrugs and says, "Sure, I guess." Not exactly what I want to hear, but I have a feeling it's as good as it's going to get.
