Has the economy, the way it is made you leary of TTC?

Stephanie,

I hate to say it but based on some of your other posts, I get this feeling your DH is trying to avoid the whole TTC issue right now.

I can see where the economy may be a factor but you can't plan for everything. When XH and I were TTCing for DS the war in Iraq had just started and I was wondering what we were doing bringing a child into a world like that. This can be said for the economy, and all other things that affect life that you have no control over.

Do you and your DH go to any support groups for parents w/ special needs? Has he had a chance to met with other parents who have a special needs child and other children that are not special needs? Did you guys have your appointment with genetic consoler yet? How does your OBGYN feel about you having children after 35 (woman do it all the time, but we are all different)?

Have you guys talked at all about ways to cut back and get a savings built up for when the next baby comes?

(((HUGS))) I am sure this isn't easy.

Actually, unlike most people for dh and I things are really good financially for us and it is the first time in a very long time.
