We waited until I graduated and got better health insurance.  I graduated in May and it was supposed to take four months to get my paperwork processed and get hired on full time from my co-op position.  We had agreed to start trying in September.  I ended up being hired on very quickly and had insurance by early June.  We talked about it and also decided to have one last summer of freedom.  We didn’t make it.  I ended up going off the pill in July but not getting pregnant until October.

We waited to pay off some bills off and just started tyring about 4 months ago.  I think what you and your hubby have in mind sounds like a safe plan and not selfish at all.  My hubby and I traveled a lot before we got married and before we bought our house. We are in a much better position now to raise and have a child or two or three than we were a year ago.  Good luck and enjoy your marriege, once kids come, you get to enjoy them.

I think your plan is sound and so even though it’s hard, it will be worth it in the end to stick with it.. it is so hard though when you see others falling pregnant by accident around you though, and they just say ‘we’ll make it work’! It makes one feel very silly for postponing it for very legitimate reasons!

My husband and I are in our first TTC cycle.. and it has been a long time coming. In the past year we’ve paid down some debts (and are still paying down others), bought a house, and settled down into a more domesticated lifestyle quite a bit.
