    Does your hubby have a good job that could support you while you are on ”mat leave”?

    If so, you could just look for a job after the baby, once you are ready and build a career from there…

    Have you too talked about it? What does he think?

    In my opinion, there’s never a perfect time to have a baby, and if you put it off for one thing, then there will be another thing.  I do think you should be in a place where you feel like you’re financially stable and can support a child, but as long as that’s the case, I wouldn’t put it off if it were me.

    @rockdr:  I totally understand.  DH and I went back and forth on when the best time was for a while before we started TTC. Then we just decided to let nature take its course and we’ll deal with the timing when it happens.  But, like I said, we know we’ll be okay financially, it just might end up being at a less convenient time than we would have ideally wanted.  But we’re okay with that.

    @rockdr:  You are definitely not alone – I think everyone goes through this to some extent.  I think it’s very rare that people sit down and say, “This is the perfect time to have a baby!” And then magically get pregnant right away and it works out perfectly. I’d say timing is an issue for most people in one way or another.  Glad I could help and good luck!

    @rockdr:  I don’t have kids but I’ve talked to my sister who has 2 and she said “You are never going to be totally prepared for kids.”  As long as you know you can do it, financially, and you both feel ready, go for it.
