Planned Pregnancies

For those of you who had planned pregnancies:

What made you decide to have a kid? Or have another kid?

What made you think you were ready?

How did you know that it was the right time?

Sorry...just crossed my mind. I'm curious how you plan to have a baby. :)

well I always knew I wanted to be a Mother, we decided that we would have kids right away but a year after we were married, I tracked my fertility, I always knew I wanted more than one, I wanted them to be close together although we waited until she was at least a year to try again.  We have 2 kids and after 2 miscarriages, I think having another is no longer an option since my cut off age was 35 and it is my 35th birthday next week.

We sat down looked at finances, our schooling/ work schedules, and talked about the pros and cons. It was the best conversation ever because after trying for 12 months we got pregnant with our son :)

I was done with school, everything in my life was going great, and my son wanted a sibling.

Our first was not planned. lol And after she came along, we weren't going to have any more, because he has two older boys. He felt that three was enough. But, I told him that while HE had 3, I only had 1, and I needed to be mommy to more than 1 (don't say anything about how his boys are my boys too. They aren't. They're his, and they're my stepsons. But I am not their mom). I wanted our daughter to have a sister (obviously couldn't plan that part lol), a sibling who was there with her all the time, not just every other weekend. So, he agreed. I wanted them close in age, and since she was going to be 2 in a couple months, we decided to start trying. I got my BFP one week after her birthday. =) And I am SO glad we had another. My big girl got a baby sister, and she loves her so much. She is a wonderful big sister. The boys love having two sisters. Our family feels complete now.


eta: not saying anyone would jump on me about not calling the boys mine, but people have in the past. I love them. Very much. But they're not mine.
