    sfbride2018 :  I vote wait. It’s much easier to have a kid when your career is more well-established than it is when it’s growing… You’re not going to be able to put the time into your career that you hope. It will be much easier to do that when you can hire someone to do work for you when you can’t be there (which very well could be a lot). Also, it sounds like your husband just isn’t ready.

    And as someone who had every reason to believe she would get pregnant quickly, and it took 9 months of tracking my cycle religiously to get pregnant. Trying to time when you want to have a baby doesn’t work for everyone.

    I vote wait. It’s going to be extremely difficult to build a business empire and a family simultaneously in a ridiculously HCOL area. Have you looked into daycare costs around you? If you’re putting in 55 hrs a week, I’m guessing you’ll need daycare full time. Here in Boston that’s $2600 a month, I’m not sure about LA. I think that you should pay off your credit cards, build your savings and your business, get a feel for the local daycares and then revisit the idea once you have that figured out.
