What goals do you want to reach before you start TTCing?

Mine are:

-Improve health/physical fitness: Ever since I had my son my diet has gone downhill, so I am working harder to eat well. I would also like to start visiting the gym 2-3 times/week.

-Save money: I want to take ~10 months off next time, so I'll need to save some money.

-Finish lab work: I'm a graduate student, and would like to be done with research and have started writing my thesis before we TTC.

-Find a larger home: ok, this one is mostly just wishful thinking, but I have a hard time imagining having 2 kids in our tiny 2 bedroom home!

-Get married: DP and I have been engaged forever, and it is probably about time we tie the knot

I find that reminding myself of what I want to accomplish before baby #2 comes along really helps with the agony of the wait.
