TTC - Trying to Conceive TTC - Trying to Conceive

How do you know it's the right time to conceive?

Our News Years resolution was to try to conceive for the first time. Now that the new year is here I'm having second thoughts because I'm scared about finances. So my question to you is how do you know if you're ready to start a family?

I'm scared to get pregnant and have our HVAC unit break on us or our car fail or other things in life that cost money that we wont have the money for. I guess you could say I'm a worry wart. We have a decent savings but I'm still scared.

Do you ladies get scared of these things? Or is it just me?

well after enough months of trying and negative pregnancy tests you stop thinking about the worrying anymore. Also make sure you give yourself enough time to conceive (it doesn't always happen the first month) and don't wait past your prime fertility window.

Im not saying this to be mean at all so please dont take it that way but if you keep wondering what if, then you will never have a family. Just start trying to have a family and take it one day at a time. I really hope you have no issues with trying to get pregnant but there is always a chance it might take several years to conceive. Good luck on whatever you decide

Like my mother in law says, if your put off having a baby or a family until the time is right you will be waiting a long time! We have 15 month triplets and are pregnant with another. My opinion is you will make it work!

At the very beginning I think it is normal to be worried and scared but once you start and get into the swing of things the excitement takes over.

Thank you! Yes, and it happens, but we somehow always make it work! We also moved into a new house in Sept on top of everything! So had a few things pop up, sometimes you just use savings! :)
