    @glittermoon:  I am in the same boat as you! I’m 22, and if you’ve been following the TTC boards you may know that I have fertility issues. We’ve been trying for 10 months now. The only thing that held me back was the judgement that I would get, from friends, coworkers and family. I’m at a point in my life where it works out well (waiting list for nursing school) to have a baby now career/school wise. Then I can go back to school when baby is 1-2 and start my career at my leisure. I guess the only other factor is finances. For us my husband wants me to be a stay at home mom, which we can physically do, but I honestly want a career. So while I’m waiting to launch my career, since there’s a built in three years where I’m basically doing nothing but working, we decided it was time for baby#1. I’ve wanted to be a mom since I was a toddler – I was born for it!!! 

    Ps, my husband is 11 years older than me too, so we really have parallel lives!! πŸ™‚ other than my husband doesn’t have kids.

    feel free to PM me if you want to bounce anything else off of me!!

    Sounds like you really want a baby, can do it, and your husband will be supportive. So go for it!

    @glittermoon:  Exactly! My family said the same thing. I don’t know what’s wrong with being a stay at home mom, especially when you plan on a career later. There’s nothing saying that plotting your path one way or another way is right or wrong, so I say go for it! I agree with you about being a young mom. My aunt had her first at 41 and now she is 45 with a 4 year-old, and she’s not handling it well – she has a stressful job and she’s literally exhausted all the time. Not that having kids later is bad or wrong at all, some of the best moms in the world are older and I have the utmost respect for them, but for me, I want to be a younger mom.

    @glittermoon:  I completely know how you feel! Half the women in my family were stay at home moms.. but now that just seems unacceptable to them (for us youngins’). I hate how times have changed. I know some women love to work and have their own career, which is great – but I feel like my calling in life is just being a great wife/mother! It’s in my blood πŸ˜‰

    @glittermoon:  Yeah, well to be honest.. my school plans have already changed since I wrote that thread. lol I realized that I will be finished with the program by May 19th! And then I can get a job in the field πŸ™‚ I plan on continuing and getting another certification (which will take one more year) but I actually can’t pursue that certification until I get some experience in the field. So having a baby wouldn’t be all that hard right now.. πŸ˜‰
