I posted a similar thread on the other TTC area, but wanted to get your opinions, too, & it seems that a lot of people stick with just one area of the boards (understandably).
As I said when I first came to this board, we had recently been thinking about ttc, and I've been getting my body ready, with the intent of probably starting this cycle. AF came, is almost done, and we were going to ttc when I o, which *should* be in a little over a week omy periods are irregular, but I seem to O right at 2 weeks after AF starts. Anyway... hubby was offered a job last week that is over 1000 miles away, which would require us to move. Everything is up in the air, but it is looking very likely that we will be moving, and before the year is over. I'm 32, in good health, never ttc before, never been preg before, handle stress very well & am pretty stoic as far as pain, sickness, etc. My age & the stress, though, make me worried about ttc right NOW- I'm not getting any younger, but I dont know how my body will handle pregnancy, if I'll have bad morning sickness, or if the stress combined wit my age will encourage a m/c. Like I said, I handle stress well, but it we do move, this will be one of the most stressful things I've done, moving away from my parents, sisters, inlaws, friends, everything. I am not afraid of morning sickness, I just wonder how hard it would be to move with it, and would the stress put me at a higher risk of m/c? If it were you, would you wait until you moved, or go ahead & ttc?
I am wondering the same thing. We plan to TTC come early next year and will be moving next summer. But I am used to moving and am probably going to move somewhere I actually want to be so I'll be excited to move.
Ashley basically said what I was thinking - I wouldn't wait unless I had to.
You can work around pregnancy. And honestly, unless you go against doctor's orders and try to move the couch yourself, you're unlikely to have a problem with miscarriage due to moving - most miscarriages seem to be beyond human control, not about anything anyone did.
Just wanted to say that I agree with the others that I would NOT wait. I have learned not to plan my life around the possibility of getting pregnant. It is much easier to just deal with it when it comes. Plus I am sure that a LOT of people have moved while pregnant with no issues. Just listen to your doctor and your body.
Whatever you decide I wish you much luck! I'm 34 so I understand the concern behind the age factor.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.
