Has anyone every asked you why you’re having or trying to have a baby?
I was asked by a close friend and just said that I think Darling Husband and I are ready for a LO and we want to… What’s the right answer to that question? (I think she asked because we are close in age, 22 & 23, and she’s not even close to wanting kids.)

There is no “right” answer. Everyone matures at different rates and everyone has a relationship that is in a different place. Age is never going to be a good indicator of how “ready” someone is. Now being ready and why you want one ARE different questions. Why you want a baby is totally personal, but I would hope it because you want to bring life into this world to raise and love. For me, as long as the reason is not “because it’s the next step” or “because we’re married and people expect it” your reasons are your own and it doesn’t matter. Having kids or not having (and when to have them) are not decisions to take lightly, but I think some people “just know” and some people really have to make a decision.
Good luck with TTC and I hope it all works out for you 🙂
