I'm 20 years old. I had my first baby when I was 16, He's now going on 3. I've been a SAHM since he was about 6 months old. I dropped out of school because we couldn't afford daycare anymore, and no one else to watch him (that we trusted). Anyways, We're not TTC right now, but have been talking about when would be the right time for #2. We're financially stable now, my husband has a good job & he also goes to school online. My son, Brycen, starts pre-school this summer. Which with the original plan, I was going to get my GED, and go back to school when he did. But now we're not sure if we should have another now, and I can put off school for a few more years. OR go ahead and go back to school and hold off on another baby for awhile. I think if we did hold off, it would be more hectic me having to leave work/school after I get on track with that. But sometimes now it bugs me that I haven't even got my GED or anything yet, and I feel like I rely on my husband most the time, which I dont like. Plus, I was diagnosed with PCOS last year, so there may be complications TTC, and it may take a few years to get pregnant anyways. (I've only had my period a few times since my son was born in 2008. Ive been on several medicines, but nothing keeps it going for more than a couple days. My ovaries are filled with a bunch of little cysts. My doctor told me we may have to do IVF when we do decide to have another.) Has anyone ever been in the same situation? What did you decide? & do you regret it at all?
