Hi lovely ladies,
Just thought I'd let you all know that we've decided to stop trying for a baby right at this moment.
We’ve decided that I’ll teach for a year or two, and do so overseas if possible. With Aaron's wage increasing infinitely, and my own full time wage, we'll be in a far better position both financially and emotionally to give our children exponentially better opportunities in the future. We don’t believe it fair upon our children to have them now, with essentially only one wage and living in a significantly smaller apartment than would be ideal. This is only our idea, and certainly doesn’t reflect upon anyone else but ourselves.
It hurts to not be able to do something that we’ve both wanted for so very long, but hopefully we’re better able to care for our future children as we believe they should be cared for if we just wait a while longer.
I don't know how I'm going to be any less upset each month, even though we're both pleased to have reached the best decision. I guess that's just something I'll have to work on.
Sorry for the rant, and good luck to everyone on their ttc journey's - I hope they're all short and wonderful!
