when to start TTC!
I know it's crazy to ask a bunch of online sisters to weigh in on such a personal decision but I think it may help me through the decision process so here goes.
I am 34 years old, 35 in July.
I have five children, the youngest will be one year in April.
I work full time.
I am a graduate student, finishing my masters now debating on starting the doctorate in the fall.
I just had a miscarriage so I am waiting at least 3 months for my body to heal, taking BC pill because I always oops when CTA.
I need to exercise more and improve my eating habits, but doesn't everybody :)
So here are the options:
August 2012 - This works because if I conceived right away it would be a May baby which is good for taking time off of work and school. My youngest would have just turned two years old and I would be 35 years old when the new one was born. It's also 4 months away so that's good time for healing and getting healthy. The con is I always have morning/all day sickness and my youngest would be 16-18 months old during that time.
October 2012- This gives me a July baby so I would be turning 36. My youngest would be 2 years and 3 months old when the new one was born. July is not as good as May or June with work and school. My youngest would be 18-20 months during morning sickness time. My body would have longer to prepare for the pregnancy.
January 2013- My husband's favorite option (of course all options will discussed and a final decision made with him). The youngest will be 2.5 years old. I will have a good long time to get my body ready. This is the WORST choice with my work and school schedule giving me a September baby.
Of course I may not even conceive right away so all these may be mute points.
So Ladies what am I forgetting when it comes to this decision?
