Me and my boyfriend have been discussing TTC, and I’m just really… unsure of how I feel right now. My biggest question would be: how do you comfort yourself / accept waiting to have a baby? At first, my bf seemed really interested in TTC since things didn’t work out… even though it was unexpected. Now he’s been bringing up waiting. And I can see exactly where he’s coming from. We make enough to get by, but he says maybe we should wait a bit longer so we can have enough to enjoy spending on the little things you don’t really need but are fun to have. Also since we’re both still pretty young, that maybe we should wait a little bit longer. I know he really wants to be a dad, he’s told me before. But he’s being logical. I mainly don’t want to have a baby before he feels ready, seeing as we’d both be happiest if this was a mutual agreement of being ready. He told me a while back “[name]Even[/name] though I’d rather wait to have a baby, I’d still be happy if you were pregnant earlier” and he was. I just feel like since I grew up happily struggling, it wouldn’t bother me personally. I’d make due with finances and enjoy the little blessing! And there’s no big goals I’ve got… I asked him if he had any, and he didn’t. Though he wanted to think a little more about it… which we do have to get any big goals accomplished before baby otherwise it wouldn’t be so easy to do.
However, I just feel so ready. I’ve been desiring to be a mum since I was really young, though back then I knew it just wasn’t an option to me until I was at least 18. Now that I’ve gotten that far, and I have a job with semi decent pay, and a boyfriend whom I’ve got and always had a very stable relationship with, who has an amazing paycheck, and etc, I just feel like its time. I don’t want to try and talk him into this or anything. I know when he feels ready he’ll approach me and say so. But I just know that I personally feel so ready. I’ve been reading a bunch of reviews on items, even bought some smaller items to store away for the future. And seeing as this has always felt like my calling in life… I want to pursue it. Plus, I am always passing pregnant ladies or mothers, and it absolutely breaks my heart when they talk about how much they regret their precious little baby when I would kill to be in that position :’(
All in all, how many of you other momberries / future momberries had to or have been waiting to have a child? [name]How[/name] do you comfort yourself in the idea of having to wait? I know my bf said that the wait would be 6-12 months, which isn’t that long in all actuality, but it definitely feels like ages. And it almost makes me feel crazy, especially when I know things could be better in just waiting!! Is there any advice you have? I’m thinking of learning how to knit, so I can make some clothing lol. But we’ll see! I’d love to hear your advice or personal experiences though.
Thanks so much!
