So why now?

In my last post, I talked about some of my fears about motherhood. I've also shared our Baby Bucket List that probably will not be completed before we start TTC. I'm in my twenties, so my biological clock is not ticking like a time bomb. This next year will be very full with Husband completing school, taking his liscensing exams, and looking for a job. We may try to sell our house next year. With everything coming up, why start trying this year?

Because we're ready. There are things with my job, our insurance, and our plans for after pharmacy school that initially started the "what ifs", but the truth is, it's something we both want and we're willing to sacrifice our old plan to get us to where we really want to be.

I will always dread giving up sushi. There will never be huge amounts of discretionary income (trust me, pharmacy school aint cheap). I will always have narcolepsy. We will never get our fill of "couple time", and we plan to still make it a priority no matter when we have kids.

Life never slows down. And there are some things worth more than sushi:)


  1. Everyone has their different timelines. Only you know what's best for you and the hubs. No time will ever be the "perfect time"...if we all wait for the perfect time we'll never end up having kids! Just trust in God and know He will never give you more than you can handle! Congrats on the beginning of your journey :)

  2. You will never be 100% ready but once the baby is here, you really will not know how you went so long with him/her. They are lots of work but also lots of love and smiles!!
