    Default When did you know?

    It was the right time to start TTC?
    And did your partner agree? Or did one of you convince the other?

    Not sure some days if I am feeling clucky or just looking for a change in my day job...

    There's no right time.

    When we started ttc ds I often had second thoughts and wasn't sure we were ready. But after months of not conceiving those thoughts were out of my mind completely. I started to think we should have started earlier (dh wanted to early in our relationship but I wanted to finish my degree first). It definitely was the right time for us. I regret not starting earlier as it obviously takes us a lot longer than I expected to concieve (currently ttc #2 for 10 months) and while I'm still young, dh isn't getting any younger!

    When I got a ****ty diagnosis from the dr. I already knew I had some fertility issues and then another (non-fertility) health problem on top of it, we decided it was time to try before my body decided not to cooperate at all.

    No regrets. It wasn't good timing in other areas of our life but at that point in time a baby was way more important to us than anything else.

    Just starting ttc#2 and I can't wait to get pregnant again.

    This. There will always be a reason not to start yet. At some point, you just need to jump in.

    As others have said there is no right time. If you wait until 'the right time' well there is no magical day when you wake up ready.
    I'm 33 and DH is 40. We've just had our first baby through ivf after 2 years of fertility treatment. Even while pregnant, even now she's here, I question if I was/am that elusive 'ready' lol.
    If life is stable and you're sure you'd like kids then go on a big holiday, enjoy tons of sleep ins, spontaneous activities and nice restaurants 😛 and take the plunge.

    As everyone else has said, there is no perfect time. Currently expecting #1 there are still slight moments of doubt. Despite no ideal time, I do believe you need to be in the right place financially to be able to have whatever time with bub that you wish for.
