WTT or just TTC now?



I'm 19, married with a 15 month old daughter.
My OH only wants 2 children and for me thats something a woman can't plan, especially as I'm younger and by the time my friends all have babies, I know I'll just be so broody.
So are 'plan' just know is to wait 5 years, for me to go uni, get a degree and go to work for a year after it to secure proper job then TTC, but that seems ages away...where as I'd much prefer TTC now and then doing that 'plan' 2 years down the line, that way the age gap is wouldn't be too bad either, there was 7 years between me and my little sister and I hated it...
so I don't know what to do, I really would love a baby now, but on the other hand would love to do something again but 5 years seems too long to wait.
What do yous think?
Why are all of yous WTT?

hiya, personally i think it would be easier for you if you TTC soon and have both kids b4 you start uni, seens how you already have 1 LO. but obviously how financially well off you are, obviously uni provides better job opportunities a lot of the time.

im 20 and im WTT cause im at uni at the minute and im now in my final year, im hoping to start TTC at the end of 2012 once ive got a stable job after uni and have moved house, but i think if i already had a LO and was planning another 1, id have them both at similar ages then go to uni

what feel best for you?
xx

Only you (and your DH) can decide what to do. I think i'd have my second now if I was in your position. My Mum had children young and she swears by it. Once we were all at school she was able to go back to college and study while she was still young. When all your friends are having kids you'll finally have got the kids out of the baby stage and be back at uni forging yourself a career. And who's to say you can't have a third when you've finished uni and got a good job? X

As said above only you and your OH can decide that. You are right 5 years is a long time but you are young enough to be able to do so if thats what you wished I think been's you already have a LO then going to uni is something you could do (as you've said) 5 years down the line. Have you spoken to your OH about this?

Im waiting purely cus the OH doesnt feel ready at 22 to start TTC, although im 25

]Thanks for all your help
Think I'll maybe try to get a part-time job just now then TTC after summer and then in a few years time go to uni, I suppose it'll happen when it happens, as my mum always says...
