I'm toying with the idea of booking a mini-Euro vacation in January (about 2 or 3 weeks, since I'm on holidays then) but maybe we could start TTC in September ish so it wouldn't be a disaster if we did get pregnant before the trip... I just don't know!

Yes. No point going to Europe (if it were me) if you can't sample the wine and cheese and are chucking your guts up from morning sickness.
The cost of having an enjoyable and indulgent holiday is delaying ttc by 5 months - worth it in my book. That's me though.

When I said I wouldn't wait to TTC I meant I wouldn't wait more than a year. Take your holiday in January. Go to Iceland, it's amazing!

Thanks everyone for your your thoughts! Lots to think about!
Can I ask why there is trouble getting travel insurance when pregnant? Most companies I've looked at cover pregnancy if there are no complications. But it would indeed suck if something did happen abroad, even if travel insurance covered it!
I don't drink anyway so I wouldn't miss the wine but it would be sucky feeling sick and tired all the time.
I'll have to think about it! Waiting to TTC until next year when I am 29 seems like ages away Especially when so many people in the thread said they wish they'd started trying earlier/before 30!

If you want to travel do it. Everyone is different. For dh and I it was important to us to have financial security first. We had 2 properties before we started a family. We didn't feel we were ready to have children until I was 30. We had been together 12years prior and we loved those years together, we had a lot of fun. I don't feel I would have been as good a mum as I am now had I had kids younger. Financially it would have been tough due to having time off work in between the 3 kids we have had we not had the financial security first. I was also studying in my early 20's and wanted to complete that first. It's comforting knowing our children will gain financially as by the time they are starting out it will be so much harder for them without some financial assistance. I do believe you need to be ready to have children and there's a right time and only you know when it's right for you.

Thanks for your reply, Blessedwith3boys! We are definitely financially secure right now. If we blew some funds on an overseas trip however... Ha!
I'm judging by your sig that you had IVF. Do you think your journey would have been easier if you had kids younger or if you'd found out about fertility issues at a younger age? I guess this is the main thing I am worried about. I'm in my late twenties so waiting a little longer would mean breaching the 30 mark! Which I know doesn't mean much in this day and age but... I don't know! Lots to consider I guess we will know when we are truly ready!
