1. DD is only six months and we'd like a two year gap (approx)
2. I'm having almost a year of mat leave with DD and I'd like to fo that with #2 which means we need time to save some money
3. I worked really hard to get the qualifications for my job and I worked even harder to establish myself professionally, I feel that if I don't go back to work for a year, I'll be undoing all the hard work.
We are waiting because we're gettin hitched first! Seems like i've waited for so long though. Think we started trying early 2009, had 4 losses over the years, we had to have lots of tests which took such a long time so we decided we would plan our wedding and get married. Tests came back all normal so we are just waiting for our wedding week now to ttc! Not that far away now but its felt like a lifetime for me! I think i ovulate around my wedding week/honeymoon also! Eek!
We're waiting until I'm ready, I want to lose weight and be healthy before we have another baby.
We would have preferred our kids to be about 2 years apart but after 18 months of trying I've put it on hold to get healthy and then we'll try again.
We are waiting until we go on our summer holiday at the end of July. We knew we wanted to TTC this year so booked one last luxury holiday because as much as we love our holidays, we know that the style of holiday we usually go on wont suit a baby or our budget when I am on mat leave! So off to Mexico it is for two weeks of all inclusive bliss and we are going to try while we are away. Both of us really want to TTC now but I want to be able to enjoy the food and drink on holiday and don't want to fly all that way pregnant. Defo the right choice for us, can't wait! Xx
We are waiting because I'd like to be at a healthy weight before we start trying, I have arthritis in my hips and they can barely carry my current weight, let alone a baby bump! Also because we need to pay for fertility treatment to conceive, we don't want to be paying out for treatment which could be unsuccessful because of something we can change - hope that makes sense! Emotionally we are so ready and the wait is so tough!
