Our baby would be due really close to my birthday. Baby would be due Feb 12th (AF started today) My 32nd will be Feb 14th. I know many people think that we have no right to TTC since we currently don't have any income right now. But I am confident that DH will get a new job long before we have another baby. It took us 6+ years to get Peter, I feel like if we wait it could be too late, I am not getting any younger....

I think it's okay to be TTC now. Even if you get pregnant right away, there will be time to get a job.

My current pregnancy is due right around my birthday. I think it's neat, like I'm getting a baby for my birthday. I think most women (even those without losses) would find a baby to be a great gift. But it feels like the best gift ever to me, after having two losses to get to this point.

Many prayers that you conceive this cycle. My DH doesn't have a job either and we are still TTC. You know what is right for your family and no one can tell you otherwise. Good luck!

Erica - seriously it is none of anyones business if you TTC or not and what your family situation is like.

The exact opposite happened to us. We had jobs when we were TTC'ing - 18 days before Scarlett was born I got laid off, then 2 weeks after she was born my husband lost his job.

Moral of the story: Go with your heart as you never know what life is going to throw at you.

Agree wit the ladies, first is no one's business, and second you don't know what's going to happen, take life as it comes.
