What are your reasons for waiting?



  • Financial - we don't have enough money yet
  • School - one or both of us is still in school
  • Career - one or both of us want to be farther along in his/her career.
  • Personal - I don't feel ready to be a parent.
  • Relationship - we want to spend more time as a couple before having a baby.
  • Combination of Financial AND Career
  • Combination of Personal and Career
  • Combination of School and Financial
  • Combination of Personal & Relationship
  • Other (please elaborate)

I'm a newbie to this board, but thought I might jump in with this one. I am waiting to try for my second child until sometime this summer because of a medication that I am currently taking which I can NOT get pregnant on. Its not too far off of our original time table since we were hoping for a three year spacing between our children (my DS turned 2 in February), but I'm starting to get really antsy! I have less than three weeks left on the medication, at least a month to wait after that, and we'll probably wait an extra month to be on the safe side. So I'm looking at sometime late June or July to start actively trying.

Oops, silly me, I forgot about people with a child already!! My fault! Thank you for pointing it out.

Are you taking Accutane by any chance? If you are, feel free to commiserate with me - I took it THREE times. Yup, that's right.

It works for most people, I hope it works for you!

Thankfully when I hit my mid-20's things kind of calmed down on their own.

Anyway, good luck!

Yup, Accutane it was - my acne has always been bad, but it got just ridiculous during my prenancy. Then I had to wait until I was done nursing to go on the Accutane. I took my last pill four days ago and so far so good. My skin looks better than it has since I was ten (and I'm 29 now!) I think my chapped lips are even starting to go away. So another month to wait to ttc at least - DH wants to wait an extra month just to be sure!
