Nope. Our family is built on gods time. We have had ups and downs financially but our relationship with eachother gets us through all things. Yeah having money is a need but we have always been provided for.

Nope, we decided that there wasn't a perfect time and just went for it when we decided to have DS. It took 8 months too, so it was even longer than we expected. This time, ironically, we were out on a date night and were discussing how it isn't a great idea financially. Yet, we still decided to ntnp and were staring at a positive pregnancy test 3 weeks later. Basically for us, we agree that we can be overly pragmatic. We have very little debt (a mortgage) and we live fairly frugally. We are 34 (me) and 40 (DH) and decided that was more of the priority right now than worrying about paying down our house or growing our business/careers. We'll get by.

If you wait till you are ready you will never have a baby. I would maybe recommend planning a trip together somewhere as kinda your last adventure as just the 2 of you and go from there.

Actually, this is what we did! We went on a 14-day cruise to Alaska and had the time of our lives. We started TTC on that trip, but it took us three months to conceive. That one ended in a loss, so we're trying again.
