I'm waiting too due to school. I want to conceive while in school (online, part time) and have the baby right after finishing. My DH is pushing to have the baby sooner. I am going to have to drag my feet because I know myself -- I CANNOT do school with a toddler and a newborn. I don't want to. I will get depressed. He thinks a 3 year spacing is great and that a 3 year 5 month spacing is WAY TOO BIG. I agree that the 3 year spacing is ideal, but I really want to finish this program without a newborn!!! So next best thing seems to be 3 years 5 months. Mamas? What do you all think?
That is funny that your DH is so particular about the age gap. In all honesty, hardly any of us can actually control that. My Ds is already 4, and we won't be trying until this Fall, so that same as you, I will be having baby AFTER I graduate, which means Ds is going to be at least 5 (depending on how long this TTC thing actually takes). It's not IDEAL, but we have to work with what we have. Not only that, but just because we are TTC, does not mean it's going to happen right away!! Tell your DH to relax and let him know it will all work out fine and as it's suppose to!
