I would really love a sounding board here. DH & I are early 30s TTC baby #1. We have spent our 20s working and travelling every year all over the world (which we love). A few months ago my Mum & I talked about the possibility of doing a girls trip to the USA this year. We haven't travelled together in over a decade & we would have a great time.
We're now at the point of discussing it again. Only she doesn't know we're TTC and I'm torn. The rational part of me says I should stay home & save, but on the other hand I don't know how long TTC may take & this may be the last opportunity I have for a mother-daughter trip like this in a long, long time.
I have a great job and am the main income earner so I have the capacity to save a lot, but we will also need a fund set aside for when I go on maternity leave (I will get 10 weeks at full wage but would want to take about 10 months off).
So, thoughts? It's really hard when you're secretly TTC - I can't ask friends & family for their input 😁
