I do want kids and my husband and I want to pay off our debt first and I love going home to Netflix and quiet time... how do I know it's the right time? I'm overthinking this for sure but I don't want to get pregnant and then wish I waited... but I don't want to wait until I'm in my 30's either.
Wanting But Waiting Tribe *2010* - Page 20
I would like to be added to this list. We recently decided to have a baby #4, and I would love to start trying right away but we've decided to be sensible and wait until summer to TTC. I am the breadwinner and waiting will double the amount of time I can take off after the baby is born, which is a very big deal! I also would rather not be hugely pregnant during the late summer months again, and I'd rather not have an itty bitty baby when it's nasty and cold outside. So we're waiting until June in hopes that we'll have a baby sometime between March and August of 2012. Glad to have found this tribe!
Ok, I'm going to give in and join too. DH has wanted a #3 ever since, well, before we were married I guess. I thought I was done after my second dd was born 4 years ago, but it turns out I'm not.
We are going to have to wait until at least spring time. I'd love to just go ahead and start now, but I graduate from nursing school in May and I'd prefer not to suffer through morning (all day) sickness and practicum at the same time.
ETA I'm going back to my original MDC user name of 'sogriffin' and this user name is going to be deleted. Thanks!

Hi mamas! I won't post much here as a new 2011 thread should be started soon, but I'd like to join. I've been bumping around MDC lately trying to find my place. Spent some time with Nursing mamas TTC and the Whatevering thread. . .but then I spent some time soul-searching and decided that I really didn't want to be pg again till DS was 2 (or nearly 2).
DH is ready for #2 (and has been since our first was born!) and I have been having some serious baby-lust since DS turned 1. But in the end, my BFing relationship is too hard-won and too important to jeopardize. There are other reasons to wait (and of course I still really want to see that BFP), but the BFing really trumps all for me.
So I am wanting but waiting till later in 2011.
