    SIDS recommends "rooming in" anyway for a period of time. So by the time you get pregnant, have the baby and then have time to room in it will be 2016 anyway

    I would try for a baby now due to the already large age gap.

    Baby vs reno's.... babies are so much more fun!

    I would most likely co-sleep with this bub aswell.
    Which is the main reason i wanted a room because i wanted to set up a double bed in the room. Id have a bassinet & cot as well.

    My first was a terrible sleeper and i was always up all hours of the night with him, so having a room to do nightfeeds would be great.

    I wouldn't worry about the gap being another year or two longer. Even having a baby right away you're already looking at almost a 7 year gap, they already won't be playing the same sorts of things at the same time. Anyone who has a 7 year gap and a 9 year gap may wish to correct me, but IMO 2 more years won't make much difference and I would not factor it in to the decision making process.

    I would definitely build the extra bedroom now and try for the baby now. Fixing up the bathroom can wait a few more years.

    I wouldn't worry about having all your ducks in a row before trying to conceive. It can take longer than you plan, and babies don't really care for their own rooms anyway.
