Anyway as I said that's just what I reckon. On a side note I know what you mean by the 'nearly 30's crisis'

MrsLa- In my opinion, I would stay where you are. Financially you would be better off and if you can fit at least 2 children in there comfortably I would make that choice when you get to that point.
disney- yay for February ttc! As much as I'm excited, I do get the oh I have to do this and that to get a baby here. Not to worried about the ttc part.
Tashee- I feel the same. I hear it everywhere that this person or hat person is expecting. I keep thinking that will be us soon.
Also very addicted to one born every minute. Has anyone else who has foxtel been addicted to discovery home and health channel this week? They have had baby week. All these baby shows and I slowly think I'm getting more clucky if that's even possible.

MrsLA, Id stay where u are if i were you, theres alot of "hidden" things with a bub i didnt expect. Some of it i guess was unnessicary though! lol. I never thought id be spending around $500 to get a breast pump and set us up for bottles, because id planned to exclusively breast feed, but couldnt. I persevered until 6mnths doing both, but the formula was a minor extra ongoing cost we werent expecting! Of course it made no difference really, but if u are already having to watch $$, that would've been alot harder IYKWIM?
Disney - Im am Scared, Nervous, Excited, Anxious and Impatient about TTC all rolled into one! I guess it all depends on my mood and the happenings as to where i fall with my thoughts at the time. My biggest worry is DS and how he will handle it, each time our agreed time gets close, i freak out thinking "but he is only.........old" DF asks if we will EVER have another one! He is ready to TTC, and has been for a few months.

Ladies! I've found a cool tv show to obsess over! It's called 'the midwives'. It follows a group of midwives in Manchester UK, it's similar to one born every minute. I found it while searching for one born every minute online to catch up on episodes. It's such a great show and I thought I would share my find with you. Google The midwives and watch online and it should come up!

Thank you so much everyone for all of your suggestions, thought and support. DH and I totally appreciate it and took it all on board in making our decision.
After receiving a good (albeit a bit low) offer on our house, we decided to turn it down, and stay where we are for a few more years.
We had a lot of D&M's and did some serious number crunching and it was not going to be as tight as we thought if we moved, and we probably could still have lived relatively comfortably. But decided that there is no hurry and at the end of the day the more money in the bank the better.
We want to spend some money around this house, and improve some things, and maybe when the time is right we may even look at extending here, because we really do love the location and the block. So we will just wait and see, and keep saving our pennies.
I am still not sure that this is the right decision, but all goes to plan.
In our old plan, we brought a new 2002 model car and were selling our 2011 model car to free up a bit of cash, but now we get to keep the 2011 car and have to sell the 2002 car!!!!
anyway thanks again ladies,
Snow - I love snow, it occasionally snows at our place, but only about once every 5 years. about 2 min up the road it snows about once a year, so pretty.
Disney, I will have to get onto the midwives, sounds great thanks for the heads up

Disney i love that show too Its awesome.
Trio, i know what u mean! Will your DS accept Daddy if daddy tends to him now? Mine so wont! lol. He will NOT re-settle during the night unless i take him. It really upsets DF, as he can persevere for AGES with him screaming to the point he holds his breath, i walk in, take him, he flops onto my shoulder and is asleep within seconds! Mummys touch?? I Do worry about the hospital stay and all too! DS has never spent a night away from me...ever...then add the above...lol. I had an emergency c-sect with him, so not sure where i stand with VBAC. And id LOVE to BF, but suffered with VERY low supply with DS... Long story short, by 6 days old he'd lost 17% of birth weight, we got re-admitted to hospital and i got set up on a 3hrly routine round the clock.... BF ds, Top him up with EBM, then formula, then pump... If he didnt wake overnight i had to wake him. I doubt i could handle that again! I tried everything from motillium, fenugreek, pumping, drinking water, eating healthy, extra feeds when i could, skin to skin, etc etc etc... It just never ever established. I never got any "milk boobs" never felt my milk come in, never felt let downs etc etc. After all that work, at 6mnths i was still only pumping between 90-110mls...TOTAL over 24hrs! Enough for 1 bottle of EBM a day Had to stop at 6mnths because we discovered some health issues that required medication unsuitable for BF.
Anyway, point of all that, i dont think i could handle a reigeme like that with a newborn, as well as DS... But ill give it a really good go BF is so important to me, i was shattered and so emotional that i couldnt exclusively BF him. For the first few months, i cried everytime he had to have formula, which was at every single feed But i was seeing an awesome LC, who helped me realise what an amazing effort it was, and that "Breast is best......IF both mum n bub are happy and able" otherwise FF is ok.
