@sienna76:  Hehe this! I was gonna say… I guess a combination of synthetic estrogen and progesterone taken orally at the same time every day is holding me back in the best possible way, since I don’t want any kids.

Money.  We’re both ready, I’m 31, have been in my career for 6 years, we’ve been married for a year, we’ve been together for 10 years, but my husband cannot get a full time contract, so at the moment I make 5 times what he does but his pay will triple once he gets a contract.  So on the salary that we make currently we can’t afford an extra $1000+ a month for day care and have no relatives that could watch a baby for us.

For sure it’s money and age! I am only 23 but Fiance is 32. It won’t be another 6 or 7 years until we consider having children.

Ughhh, DH decided he wanted to go back to school for a degree in petroleum engineering. Bc the program is so hard and competitve, we decided to hold off trying until he’s in his senior year. By then I’ll be 33. =(

Getting married… that and SO isn’t ready for one yet. I, on the other hand, am baby crazy.

We both make very good money (~70 each) and live in a very low cost of living area. We own a house… I actually own 2 now, I rent my prior house out. Now it’s all up to him. He wants kids too, he’s just much more terrified of being responsible for one than I am. I’m just sitting on the edge of my seat Tongue Out. I’m finding it hard to find reasons why we shouldn’t have one soon.
