Question

Weighing Everything Up

Sep 14th, 2015, 10:59 AM   #1
 
So my mum asked me to go a family holiday next year (already posted on it). She wants to go to Florida sometime June/July. I intended on having my coil removed and TTC from next year, but now that throws a spanner in the works.

I am now basically thinking if I go a holiday say Spain or somewhere Id be able to TTC when I wanted and now that I am weighing everything up – its not really plausible to go such a big holiday/TTC and save for occasions. It would mean saving from Jackson’s birthday in January a huge chunk as we have 3 people to holiday – Jackson gets charged over 1000 and I just think by the time we save then go then come back and it’ll be almost time to either save for baby things or save for xmas/birthdays.

I think Ill have a word with D, see when he wants to TTC.

I still want to TTC from June onwards. As I want a due date hopefully between March-October. So it would mean either being pregnant for xmas which Im not ready for yet – or TTC from June or just go what the hell and perhaps NTNP until January and then have a break?

ARGH. Im not even TTC yet, and Im already stressed!!

What do you girls think – holiday to spain – cheaper, shorter flight, not as humid OR save constantly for like 2 years LOL!! I think it’s a no brainer. The problem is now I will need to think of an excuse not to go to Florida as Im not telling anyone Im TTC and wont even be telling anyone for a while when and if I do fall pregnant! LOL. Ive moaned for years to go and now its been brought up! (I do still really wanna go too!)

Sorry for the long post!!

I'm confused reading this ha! I hate having to plan and book to fly over to the other side of the sea nevermind to the US.. Though it does sound good.. I would probably if I wanted to TTC quite bad go closer by and start with NTNP and then try to be extra careful on the months where it wouldn't be best timing.. I think you'll have to consider a couple of things tho.. If you don't go florida now, you might want to wait a couple of years until you can either financially go (again) with all kids or would you possibly be willing to leave them with grandparents or someone else close enough when they're both slightly older to cut costs? (Just saying cause my family is a bit spread out through various countries and both my mum and dad have visited family abroad without me or my siblings)

My eye caught this post cause of your previous posts, which to me would suggest you might want to start TTC' earlier then planned

Hope you can come to a decision together!

It is confusing!! I feel all over the place!!

I want to go to Florida as Ive been 3 times and loveddddd it, plus I think Jackson would love it. However, at this minute, if I did Florida plus all the other things I want to do ie continue doing up my house, save, xmas etc - a normal priced holiday for 10 days is looking more visable...

Im not desperate to TTC right now if anything Im scared to atm lol - I just thought Id had everything mapped out. I think my mind has been made up. I can go to Florida in the future. I basically just want a holiday and a baby at some point next year! LOL.

Not asking much.

Hahahaha I feel you! I can imagine if you have been before you want to take your kids too It's not so much being desperate for a baby but if you know you do want another child and you do want to go florida and it both involves money, time planning, you're actually thinking quite sensible, you know what you want!

Here's hoping it all works out al right for you! Can always have a go of the lottery

Yeah Im calling it sacrafise LOL! I am still at least going on holiday. I did originally want a normal spain holiday but then my mum suggested we all go and I thought that be good as Id have my mum and dad with cars and they could help with Jackson if need be. BUT Its not realistic, If I wanted to go and have a great time I would need to save thousands - pay over a thousand each, buy holiday clothes, as well as keep up normal bills/rent etc and XMAS and Jackson's birthday.

All I want is sun, we live in Scotland so as you can imagine our summers arent quite the same. Im used to 2 holidays a year until before Jackson...

I think my minds made up, I think the next thing is to maybe just discuss when D would actually like to see when he wants to TTC and see if there is any wriggle room..

Me and D are just back from a long break, so as well I dont exactly want to run all guns blazing into TTC and I do feel a holiday would do us as a couple/family good. Before bringing in another terror
