I’ve been in the same boat as most of you. I’ve always thought, “with FH’s job and mine we will never be able to have children!” I thought, will we ever be ready for this? No. None of us will be “ready”. No matter how much you make, how many years you are into your career, how much your hubby makes, how career-oriented he is, or you may you be, don’t hold off on starting a family. Not for those reasons. I’ve seen too many posts with you women wanting to conceive but hubby doesn’t want to just yet because he’s still “career-oriented”, ok soooooooo what’s he going to do, make you wait forever? Is he going to stop working when the babies come? What happens when one of you loses a job and you’re not making as much money? Shit happens in life and you will never be fully prepared for it.
Yes there are times when you SHOULD wait, and I think these are pretty obvious. But for simply feeling you will be held back in your career or life because of children, maybe you shouldn’t have any at all…or
Just do it!

I like this 🙂 It’s akin to how it used to be “in the old days” when conception just happened. (Usually on the honeymoon night, haha!) and they weren’t “trying” or weren’t always “ready” but they made it work!

@Just_Squeeze:Yea people are just so worried and feel that they need to be prepared. It doesn’t matter how prepared you are, you WILL make it work and you will NEVER be fully prepared so just DO ITTTTT! Hahah 😀

I was talking about this stuff with my mom right before Darling Husband and I got married and her take on it was….. If you get set in your career first, you have the funds but now you don’t have the time & your kids miss out on the real important stuff which is YOU.. and if you don’t wait then yea you’re strapped at time but with life and crazy circumstances that come up.. that just happens sometimes.. people still make it work.
We are in the most ideal financial spot right this instant but I knew that with the family we wanted, I didn’t want to wait… money is just money and there will always be more… BUT I wanted to be able to enjoy my kids while I was still young and I’m trying to be nice to my body not popping out 3 kids reaching close to 40. lol

@runsyellowlites:Good for you 😀
I just find it so sad when I see people wanting to start a family but they feel they can’t because they’re not fully prepared. How could you POSSIBLY be fully prepared?!?!?! Life changes every millisecond of the day. People need to quit living in fear.
