I guarantee it won’t make a difference. September is already half over, when are you due for your next AF?

Not a big difference, plus many women don’t get pregnant in their first cycle anyway.

Yep, no difference at all… at least it wouldn’t be to me! 🙂

@Charlies_Angel:  These things are just too hard to plan for. It could end up being a few months- you just never know. I say go for it!

If we  had a crystal ball it would make life so much easier. DH and I took the approach that it would take us a few months to get pregnant, and that I really wanted to be pregnant by the end of the year. So we started NTNP in July … well … DH has some really good swimmers, we only hit once in the FW and I got pregnant. If I knew it would be that simple for us, I wish it didn’t happen until September, if only because we had a trip planned for the beginning of the month to Universal and I had to sit out on rides (which is worth it to keep the LO safe). 

Financially, one month won’t make a huge difference.

I can’t imagine it would make much difference to wait a month… besides if you get pregnant earlier, the baby will be here sooner!! I had planned on waiting until November to start TTC but I got pregnant in April. I will be two months away from meeting little one when we might not have even been pregnant yet.

I also dont think that one month’s salary will really make that big of a difference if you plan on being a stay at home mom for a year. The sooner you start cutting your budget, the better!

We talked about TTC in July and ended up TTC at the end of June. I told DH it could be our “practice month”. We got pregnant on our first month trying (didn’t expect that at all) but it gives us a mid March baby (I didn’t want to be in my 3rd trimester during the summer) so I’m looking forward to having a late winter/early spring baby!

  In some months, it would have made a very big difference. With my job, I have a ton of things to do at the end of the school year, and they are things that a long term sub or another staff member can’t accomplish for me. Being out in April/May would not be ideal (though before taking this job, our original plan was to have a baby in March so I could have a long summer break :-)). We were going to hold off TTC in the summer months, just for that reason. We started in April and I happened to get pregnant the first cycle (which is common in my family).

  It all depends on your own schedule and reasons for things :-).

@Charlies_Angel:  If you get pregnant a month earlier, you return to work a month earlier. So I don’t see how it makes a difference.
