No. We were financially stable and comfortable before we decided to have a baby.

No.that is why there is a 7 year age difference between our children. We waited until the hubs was bring home more money and we had put away enough to make our rent and car payment for a year in the event something happened.

I knew it would be a bit difficult, like any choice really. I mean you can be totally prepared for a baby but what if the baby is special needs...or twins? Then what.....you can only prepare so much. Anyway, I know it would be tight but that we could make it work and the kids wouldn't want for anything.

Nope, we are due for our second and last on the 27th. Last because we would probably struggle with 3, and we have a lot of financial and life goals that wouldn't mesh with 3 kids.

Nope.  We were in our early 30's before we had our first child.  We both had careers.  We planned it that way on purpose.
