Good luck! We're hoping to start around May but realistically it's probably going to be a bit later.
Hopefully not too much later.

I'll keep fingers crossed for you that you're partner finds suitable work very soon.
Thank you. He has a job but needs to apply for consultant jobs (he's a doctor) from next month onwards. It's all a bit uncertain because there aren't many jobs so we might have to move and buy a new house. The only thing holding us back is not wanting to move with a baby/while pregnant. It's so tempting to just be like bugger it, let's do this though!
That's not too bad then, but yes I know what you mean. So easy to just go let's just go for it... especially when in the mood *cough cough* but I keep reminding myself that we have been and should continue to be sensible about it.

I've been with my husband for 7 and a half years now, a few more months to make sure the time is right won't kill us

I am at the point where I get slightly annoyed and jealous by people who don't seem to think the same as me though, like people who haven't been together long and don't work who just go stuff it let's have a baby. I know that's not what I would have wanted to do and I don't begrudge them their babies either... but I just feel like it's not fair at times.

We discussed babies throughout our time together and my husband has always been very open to the idea, on a number of occassions he made it very clear that although he would rather wait until we owned a house and were married I was basically in the driving seat and if I really wanted to start trying all I'd have to do was say, which put a lot of pressure on me to make the right decision to be honest. I just feel like the right time is so close and after putting off trying a few times recently... I'm tired of putting it off and waiting... this is the last leg though. 3 months... is nothing

Haha bless you, although I was glad we weren't newly pregnant for our honeymoon. Obviously it depends where you're going but we met loads of couples and it was all inclusive and we were all drinking together. I think it would have raised questions if I wasn't drinking and I'd be excited and I don't know... although we've kept in touch with quite a few of them it would have felt weird if a group of strangers (at the time) were the first to find out we were expecting

I'll keep my fingers crossed for the maybe job for you, if he doesn't get that I'm sure it will mean that something else better is just around the corner, but I understand you need to know really. The not knowing is what's worse isn't it

Yup, you're in a similar position to what I was in last time I was here, in the not knowing way anyway. I'd come off depo and I had no idea when I would be able to start trying as it messes with your cycles. When my cycles did come back we had to stop trying for different reasons... luckily we didn't go back on any contraception other than condoms so I don't have that same worry this time around.

Maybe set yourself a date when you think he'll def have a job, say that's when you're going to start trying and then at least you have a point to count down to.. then if it happens sooner, great

Hi all,

We are thinking about ttc baby no3, I feel like I want a bigger family when I'm older but just don't know if I can cope with them just now! I have 2 boys, ds1 is nearly 6, ds2 is nearly 3years......and they are mental!! Lol

I've felt quite uncertain but read something the other day that you never regret a baby but may regret not having them in years to come. Also they are only wee for a few years. It will be tough, I'm not fooling myself and I'm nervous, but worth it later on.

Anyone else ttc no3 or 4?
