Just wondering if anyone’s did all three in the same year?
We just bought our first house, will be married soon and originally hoping for a honeymoon baby. But I’m wondering if we’ll be TTC too soon. Only very recently have I felt comfortbale enough to “feel at home”. We still need a ton of furniture but after some rearranging, and a little shopping, what we have will do for now.
Before we bought our home, I was planning for this and felt ready for a baby. But now I’m wondering if we should just wait a little bit longer until we finish furnishing the house. We’ll be able to manage regardless but with all the big household expenses (replacing the chimney, painting the exterior next year, etc.) coupled with the wedding expenses, and not to mention emptying our accounts for the 20%+ deposit, I’m wondering if it’s sane to TRY for a baby this year.
Did you get pregnant, buy a house, and get married all in the same year? How did you manage? Do you recommend it? Wish you waited a little longer before trying? Or if you got pregnant first, do you wish you waited to buy a house?
I was playing with a pregnancy calculator last night and if we “get lucky” and have our honeymoon baby, then I’ll have a drastically different summer than the one I’ve been planning with my Mom. Fi (then hubby) would have to paint the house alone and our roadtrip to the north of Sweden would have to be postponed inevitably (we were planning to go as a mini-moon this summer, but we got the house and moved in instead).
I know everything I’m saying isn’t even important in comparison, and the chances are extremely slim to conceive so quickly, but the realization that everything would be happening so quickly is finally here for me. I was so excited to start TTC a few months ago, now I’m wondering if it’s better to wait. But I’m turning 33 this year, I can’t wait long.
Any advice or words of wisdom would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
