I'm glad I waited until I was 29, I really enjoyed being carefree and working in my 20s as I now have two different careers I can go back to (retail and real estate). Each to their own I guess.

Lol thank you for your advice, and I already have a certificate in business, and two diplomas in beauty therapy and massage so this will provide easy part time work at home. I have four jobs, and two of those I can easily do a month or two after bub is born so there is no way on earth I'm dependant on my man . And hey it's never too late to study or build a career so if that's what you want then go for it

DH and I still struggle sometimes- granted its nothing like when our first daughter was born, but we still do. Everyone does at some stage. Its never going to be perfect. Its never going to be like in the movies. Things will happen that you never thought could, or you didnt see coming it does throw everything you know out the window and you have to start again.

When DH and I separated, I could have been up shizz creek without my quals...I was struggling on the parenting payment and had to start looking for work. There isn't a whole lot of work out there which doesn't require specific training or qualifications, and the alternative doesn't pay well.
I know it might seem like you will never separate, but I thought the same too. Anything can happen.

I had my first 1t 19 (pregnant when I was 18) and I don't regret it as such...but once you have them, you can't give them back and I wish I had done more 'living' first. I'm in a very different headspace now at 24 than when I was 19.

Also, I'd wait until I've been on those wonderful overseas adventures you have booked and then see how I felt then. You might go and have such a wonderful time that you won't want to have a baby just yet till you get the travel bug out of your system. Where are you going btw?
