Is it the right time?
Hi, got married recently and we would love to start trying for a baby. It is something we have wanted for a long time but I have some reservations.
- The house isn't finished, we bught it five years ago and have renovated a lot but still have the garden and what would be the baby's room to do. Also kitchen but parents paying for that as wedding present.
- Family issues, I think there might be some issues with my immediate family as I know their feelings about children
- Neither of us earn much, we manage and don't rely on handouts but I would hate for us to get into a position where we would need to ask for help.
- Also my hubby says we would need to give away our pet as he feels house is too small for baby and pet and I can't help feeling that is wrong, we have had him for 4 years.
We both really want a child but my hubby feels we should do it and not worry about the above issues but I'm just not sure. My hubby is older than me and feels he wants to be able to enjoy his children and we would ideally like 2 before he turns 40 but that is only 4 years away.
What do you ladies think? Feel free to be brutally honest.
