How did you "know"??

Hi All, I am new to the boards but really trying to figure out if we should TTC, been married since 09 and I just turned 30..


 


I love babies, but I also love my freedom and no responsibility so my question is how did you know when the time was right? Did anyone feel hesitant because its such a life changer?


We know we want kids, but keep putting it off because Im scared of the change in lifestyle and of being pregnant in general..being sick , getting fat and not being able to lose the weight, phobic of needles and hospitals, all selfish reasons really.. I know, I'm a big baby..


Any thoughts that helped you decide it was time?

I spent almost a year preparing to have a baby (saving money, getting super healthy, having a last couple of indulgent vacations etc) but as soon as that pregnancy test was positive I was terrified!! I panicked that we had made a huge mistake and spent days after questioning whether we were ready to disrupt our lives!
I was so scared of being overweight after the birth (and TBH I am only just getting used to my new body shape after 4 years) but I don't regret it at all - I have bad days where I'd like to go back to a childfree life, but I think most parents do at some point!

We both knew that we wanted a family, we felt that there was something missing from our 'vision' of our future....and I was 31 and didn't want to leave it too late and then find out that my eggs were past their 'best before' date! We wanted 2 children so I knew we had to get on with it - as it turned out we ended up with twins so we probably could have waited another year or two, but I'm glad things worked out the way they did.

You'll be fine when you decide to TTC, it's scary but great!! Good luck xx
