  • The "right time" is different for everyone. Hard to say what's right for you when we don't know the circumstances.

  • There is no right time as there are pros and cons to having a baby right after the first or waiting a few years. Only you can decide what's right. Can you handle 2 kids in diapers? Get it over with. If not, maybe wait till the first child will be more self sufficient and even helpful.

  • we're going to be better off at the end of the year than we are now (its guaranteed. . military rank gets higher)
    so we're trying now. but its always hard to know when its the best time.

    Good luck

  • Yeah i was worried about how things would turn out.. I do not want my son to suffer or my upcoming child..(for whenever that happens).. I've been so stressed too with some much bs from a crazy person. It's affected me as well. but maybe would be better a few months ahead than right now.
