In an ideal world, I would like to have a spring baby for a few reasons (mostly silly ones but oh well). 

1. My mom is a school teacher and would be off in the summer, so she would be more available to help me out (don’t mean to sound like a big baby, but DH travels for work quite a bit and it would be so nice to have her there)

2. Wouldn’t have to be big-preggo during the hottest months (I hear it’s miserable)

3. It would be fun to be in the 2nd trimester during the holidays…hopefully no morning sickness and have a cute baby bump! It would be hard to be early in the 1st trimester then, if you weren’t ready to tell, with all the food and drinks and family time. 

So I think we’ll probably start trying around our 4th anniversary (June 2014). I’ll be 26 then, and DH will be 28. If we get pregnant quickly, that would mean we’d have our first child at 27 & 29 (we both have fall bdays), shortly before or around our 5th wedding anniversary.

I’d love to have one sooner, but it makes much more sense financially and career-wise to wait. All that being said, I am very aware that it’s likely nothing will go according to my plans haha. It’s just fun to think about 🙂
