I havent posted for a while, and when i did it was usually under the step/blended family forum. DH and I have grown so much in the past 7 years. we have really solidified ourselves as a family with my 2 step kids. we've come through court cases, major medical procedures, and DH graduated college. I just got back into school and am working towards the dream i left off of becoming a nurse. I know our lives our busy and we have lots on our plates but i am beginning to feel like i will have to make the choice to give up having my "own" baby. dh is almost 10 years older than me, and i just turned 25. we both work full time and run all over with the kids activities. I know if we keep working at it we could be debt free and own a house within 5 years. But... i want a baby. I feel like if we had one now i would be putting so much stress on us it would set us back to square one. But im afraid if we wait too much longer the kids wont even grow up with their sibling and dh might be too old to be the father he wants to be. I feel like i have to choose between my education and a baby, please let me know that we can have both? just feeling really frustrated right now.
