    I'm feeling guilty as well. With DS I was home for 15 months with him and I worry I may not be able to give anywhere near as long to the next bub with a mortgage as I'd have to go back to work

    I hear you. I was home with ds for over 2 years. I was home with dd for 5 months! But I am only back at work (my pre ds job) part time thankfully. Coincidentally, I work for a mortgage broker.

    Get the mortgage as soon as you can, work your little behinds off and get yourselves ahead so that you won't struggle with only one income.

    Do up a 'future' budget, one that you would have to follow if you had a mortgage and only your hubby's income. List all your expenses (money for bills, groceries etc) and mortgage repayments (I am sure there are calculators on some of the banking web sites).

    It will then be pretty easy to work out how long you can afford to have off with a new bubba.
