Well, I know that having a baby anytime soon would be a bad idea for me because I don't have the time or energy to devote to a baby. I don't think I could take it to classes, and frankly from what I have heard about being pregnant, I don't think I could handle that now either. My career is very important to me, in fact, probably the most important thing to me (other than my marriage). I don't have financial aid, so that's a non-issue. I don't know that my parents would care either way and his parents would be tickled pink. I really like his parents, but would never have a child just to please them. In fact, I have told them all along that I wasn't ever going to have kids (my DH is their only child, thus their only shot at grandchildren), but since I haven't made up my mind, I am not going to say anything either way to them.
DH and I have had many talks about this. I think he wants kids, but since I have been so adamantly against it, he has backed off. He said I might change my mind... as much as I hated hearing that, I think it might be true. He is incredibly good with kids, but I worry about my lack of patience with them. I see so many of the positives and negatives of having them, and am just confused.
I guess it doesn't matter terribly much for now because I have 5 years of school (possibly out-of-state) to go. I just don't know how I could have a baby and go to school. I know people who do it, but I don't know that I could.
As far as my dreams, you could be right. It may not be best to interpret them literally. I am not a particularly religious person, but I guess it couldn't hurt to ask for some guidance.
Thanks to everyone for their input.
