    @texasbee:  If it were me it would 100 percent be fertility treatments. I was in my 20s, with PCOS and when my Darling Husband asked me to wait one month to TTC due to work commitments I was devastated.

    If I were in your situation there is no way I could wait. You have the rest of your life to travel. You never know if your Darling Husband might get posted back to Europe some time, but your chance to have a child has a finite deadline to it. 

    Only you can answer this question, though really. I would never let any of this stand in the way of us having a child. We had our honeymoon planned for this December (Maldives) and a once in a life time trip planned in June next year. They didn’t even enter into my my mind I just knew we had to TTC. You know what, now I am sitting here 13 weeks pregnant, both of the trips are cancelled and I cannot tell you how much I could care less. In fact I had even forgotten all about them until I read your post! 

    If I had been TTC for as long as you I don’t know how I would be able to stay sane. You’re obviously very level headed to even consider putting this off. 

    Go for what you think is right.

    GOOD LUCK!!!!!!

    If it were me, I’d also do the fertility treatments. I don’t advocate putting your life completely on hold during the TTC process, but it sounds like these trips you’re talking about aren’t essential to your enjoyment of life. 

    I’ve been through fertility treatments myself & know how hard it is. Good luck to you!

    I think it depends. For example, if some of these trips are about seeing family or friends that you might not to see for a while due to being posted overseas soon. Then I could seen holding off with treatments.

    It’s a hard call. I’d probably aim for the fertility treatments too but … don’t know what issues you’ve been having with the Darling Husband in your other posts and maybe you need some time to figure things out with him. The stress of fertility treatments, etc?

    Any choice you make — you can make it the right one for you. Wishing you the best of luck.
