DH and I have had baby fever for about 6 months now. We always wanted to wait several years before TTC, but we can't seem to help wanting a baby now, after only 1 1/2 years of marriage. I was hoping to hear what you ladies thought about it.
On the positive side, my hubby is currently in a position where he is not attached to a ship and will not be deployed for at least a year and a half. I like the idea that I know he'll be here for the whole process. He already missed my miscarriage when he was in bootcamp, and I'm not eager to repeat a similar experience. (that one was a surprise!) But on that note, I naturally long for a child after that loss so that's a factor too.
On the negative side... well the usual, I suppose. Finances aren't terrible but could be better. Conflicted about giving up the "just us" time, which was always my biggest reason for wanting to wait. But I am finding it's a little overrated. We do spontaneous things and stay out late sometimes... but I don't feel like it would be the end of the world if we lost those things.
Ugh now I'm rambling. Sorry this was so long but for those who stuck it out, your thoughts would be appreciated
