Those are good reasons hon - I lost 2 stone recently and I feel so much better for it! It's good to get yourself into the best shape possible before pregnancy. Good luck with that!

We have been waiting for different reasons along the way - we had to stop TTC as I got a uni place and we figured it would be best to get going on it. We're now waiting so that I get the majority of the course done before TTC. xx

Thank you, you gave me a wee good feeling there i have more than 2 stone to lose but i know i will get there, and i can only imagine the feeling of loosing weight and the feeling you get from that and feel great about yourself, i just dont want to get pregnant now when i am seriously overweight and not feeling great about myself, so time to do something about it, thanks for your reply

HI, I'm a newbie and my partner told me the other day that he does want us to have a baby together. To give a little more info, we've been together for a year however my partner has a soon to be ex wife who is dragging her heels on everything, the divorce, selling the old house and letting him see his 10 year old son. I've know from day 1 I wanted to marry him and have kids but for him, he had huge reservations due to his ex and the way she has been treating him. So our reasons for waiting is pennies. I'm paying the mortgage for our flat while he is still paying for the old house so we need to wait until that is sold and we're in a better financial position. And in the meantime I'm going to try and lose some weight!! Can't wait to start trying for a baby though!! xx

I was initially waiting because I had a c-section so had to wait a year. Now my DH is deployed so have to wait until he gets back. And I'm trying to lose as much weight as possible in the meantime. I still have 28 pounds of baby weight to get rid of and than 20 lbs. from my miscarriage before Emma.

I am waiting until April to ttc. This sounds kinda silly compared to the other responses, but my oldest son (15) is going to Disney World with his school band and he wanted me to go. I have never been able to take him to Disney so I wanted to share this experience with him. I also need to get my body healthy. It's been 13 years since my last baby

Great post. I agree with the above posts that trying to loose weight before a baby is definitely a good reason. Really admire determination like that. And you'll feel great at the end/beginning of your journey!

My story/reasons we're WTT are extremely similar to those of many I've seen on this board. My OH doesn't feel ready to TTC yet. He 'wants a baby, and knows I want a baby, but doesn't feel we're in a stable enough situation financially'. The financial situation comment I understand to a certain extent (or I'm trying to understand). I feel he'd make a great dad, and most likely he has concerns he hasn't spoken to me about yet.. At the stage of not wanting to PUSH him into any decision he may regret, although feel when it happens he'd be over the moon.

I just got a new job, so after my injection runs out in March and my AF returns to a normal pattern possibly the convocation may be different.
