    Default How did you know you were ready to start TTC?

    Hubby and I had been married 6 years and decided it was time. It was like we both just knew.

    Oh and we had just paid off all our debt

    I just felt ready. I had a good job I had been in for over 2 years. We'd done a little travel. We had been married for 2 years and were happy. I felt like I wouldnt be complete without a baby - that I was missing something. DH felt the same way.

    I was waiting to start TTC after our honeymoon. Then my mum got cancer in the lead to our wedding.

    We started TTC straight away. Such a huge event made me realise how short life could be and who cares if I was pregnant for my wedding, it would make the day even more so special.
    And it did

    We had been together 10 years, bought a house and had good stable jobs and were turning 30. It just felt right.

    Unfortunately our ttc journey was a long hard road. We have now been together 21 years and we have one beautiful 3 year old DD.

    We didn't want to wait as I have pcos. Took over a year to get DD1. We now have 2 kids together.

    We got together in 2012, conceived 2013 and DD1 was born 2014.

    We had been married for a couple of years, had bought a house and I started getting super clucky whenever I saw other people's babies. Hubby took a few months to convince that it was the 'right' time to start trying. Glad we didn't waste too much time on this debate as it took us almost 2 years before we had our first baby.

    We had been together for 7 years and I was getting pretty clucky as I approached 30, but we were living overseas and knew it would just be too difficult, we didn't have brilliant jobs and no family support.

    So we moved back to Australia and waited to start trying just long enough to ensure I would be eligible for maternity leave & PPL by the time the baby arrived.

    Honestly, I would have preferred to own our own home first but I'm 32 and didn't want to wait any longer. We have decent jobs and a nice place to live, we will make it work.
