i think many people feel what you’re feeling. Why dont you ask yourself why exactly you want to have children? Is it because everyone expects you too? Because you want to continue your family lineage? Because you want someone to take care of you when you’re older? I’ve never heard of anyone  being 100% “ready” for children. You become ready witht he experience of raising them. They toughen you up, give you insight, make you realize whats really important. But kids are not an accessory, nor are they something that will necessarily make you happier day to day. I think that if you have the resources and support to raise them and could not imagine your life without children, or think you will regret being 65 and never having a single child, then whats holding you back? its incredibly hard to raise them, and yes you will have to sacrifice a lot but you will never know if its worth it till it happens. If you’re worried its too early, and the issue has more to do with timing, i would say to ask yourself if you ever really feel you will wake up one day and be mature or whole enough to raise a child. It just doesnt happen that way.

I’m not going to lie, we have just started TTC this past week, and I am scared shitless!  Of course I’m going to love my child and be super excited…but taking that last step is scary.  I’ve thought about it and wondered if that means that I am not ready…but I do believe we are, we have a house, we have savings, we are ready by all of the things that I wanted…so think of it that way
