Kudos to you for doing so much preparation already! I think it sounds like you guys are ready to start trying – the only negative I can see on your list is that you don’t currently live together (may be harder to time baby-making while you are apart, and as you said living together will be an adjustment). The drawbacks all seem to be things that are manageable, just not ideal.

You seem to have it all together, maybe not living together with your Darling Husband is making you feel this way. You say he will be done with his training in 10 months, would you wait until he is done to TTC or the plan is to start asap?

It sounds like you guys are pretty prepared!

The only thing I can add is about insurance and short term disability.  

1) sign up for disability tomorrow.  It may take a while (a few weeks) to process, and there are some where pregnancy is a pre-existing condition and you will be denied.  I signed up for long term disability during open enrollment and was denied due to pregnancy myself.  

2) how will your insurance (as its through DH) change when Darling Husband accepts a job offer?  Again, some insurance plans will deny maternity coverage if you’re pregnant when you sign up for it.  And if it takes a few months while TTC, you may end up without coverage at the end of your pregnancy/for birth.

3) Can you confirm with another practive that you will be able to switch to an OB in that practice?  some will not take new patients at the end of their pregnancy.

Just things I had to think through for my own situation, hopefully these questions have easy answers and you both can get started asap!  Good luck!!!!
