Tips on stopping yourself TTC NOW?


I guess since we are all here we are waiting for one reason or another and we all seem to want to go for it now. So, does anyone have any tips on stopping yourself TTC now rather than waiting?

I do not think that DH cares about waiting so much but I can not handle pregnancy or another child while doing my degree (and taking a year off is not an option). So what do you do to stop yourself for just going for it?

I just think I have to think sensibly about it because of the welfare of myself and of the baby. I have too many medical problems that I have to get over first. I just reminding myself that pregnancy takes its toll on even a healthy body so I want to be as fit as possible.

i just have to keep reminding myself that im moving in a few months and im in my last year at uni so being pregnant right now just isnt practical...i know thats not really a tip but its the only thing i can think off.

ohhh and my OH makes it perfectly clear we are not having a LO yet...so i suppose that really stops me just TTC now!! xx

I can you what doesn't work! Ha! I need to stop going in stores and checking to see the baby section and I need to stop going on baby store websites and reading books about trying and going into the TTC section of this website and picking out names.... This is all making me more want a baby!!

But in a seriousness. I am giving myself little goals every month or so to accomplish which will better ourselves for TTC. I am keeping busy by working and hanging out with friends and doing hobbies that I enjoy.

I always think about things I want Mikey to experience first. I also understand that if we have another baby then he will have less. It also would just make things really hard. I'm only in my first year of college so...
I would love another baby but OH says no also. Another things that makes me not want another yet is my car. I love my car and I can't afford another one. If we have another LO with OH, LO, me, my nephew, and sister plus another LO, I would need a bigger car which I can't afford. I know most people just LOVE their brand new cars but personally I LOVE my 1992 Nissan Sentra. Don't get me wrong I would love another LO but I just know it isn't in the cards. If anyone asks I just say that and they don't pester me about it and make me want another. Cars and money and houses - what I always thinkg of.

Another girl wrote a post on here saying how glad she was that she'd waited until the right time and that things felt even more special because she'd prepared her perfect little nest for her LO.That keeps me going! I want to pay off our debt first and settle into my new job

I keep putting my sensible head on reminding myself that I will be in a great situation if I wait. I also keep setting mini milestones and am planning in things to look forward to which makes our ttc date seem a bit closer

I am trying to think about the extra stress and Uni and we are going to take DS on holiday next year for his second birthday. Having said that it is hard now DH does not seem to care about waiting as much as he did when we first talked about having a second.

I just give myself things to look forward to that I wouldn't enjoy as much if I was pregnant! Going to the USA in the summer, and I know it'll be better without morning sickness. This could be our last holiday without a family so I want to have a few drinks and relax.

I keep my degree in mind. I know I can provide the baby with a better life if I wait just a few more months. Plus it took me long enough to return to education, I shouldn't quit now!

And I want to lose some weight and get healthier first. I know if I get pregnant now, the risks would be much higher. I feel i'd be selfish to TTC right now.
