Last summer, my DH and I decided that we were ready for kids. I stopped taking the pill in August and we planned on waiting 6 months or so and were going to start trying this spring. Ever since I was a little kid, all I really wanted to do for sure in my life was have a family. Recently though we've had a number of financial setbacks that have left me wondering if this really is the right time for us to start having children. Also about a year ago, I had this incredibly realistic dream of me holding a little girl who was laughing which has been in my memory since then. It makes me feel incredibly happy and hopeful every time I think about it. On one hand I feel like it's time for us to do this and we'll find a way to make it work, but then again I wonder if it's a wise choice to make when things are getting rough financially. Do you see us starting our family soon or within the next couple of years?

thank you so much!

I think you should move forward with your pregnancy plans. That little girl you dreamed of is very close to you and is ready to be a part of your family, (which is why she showed you herself in your dream). Everything is going to be alright!

Thank you! That's exactly what I was thinking and feeling. I'm not sure how it's going to work out, especially financially, but things have a way of working themselves out. That's the most realistic dream I've ever had in my life and it's left such an impression on me as I don't often have dreams of that intensity. I too got the impression that it was my future child telling me she's ready to become part of our family. It just helps to have someone else think that way too if you know what I mean.

Thanks again!
