No longer TTC :(

DH found out today that his work contract will not be renewed for next year.
This means that he is now looking for work. He has been with his current employer since we graduated college so this is a big shock and disappointment to us.
I will have to try and get work now, too, which means no baby for us anytime soon. I will have to put DS into full time daycare, which I did not want to do... but no other choice now and I'm just praying I can get a contract.
I am cancelling my appointment at the RE, as for one, we cannot afford to pay for the appointment with all the uncertainty ahead, and for two... we can't really TTC when things are so uncertain for us.
I'm super upset because we are both post-grad educated professionals, but our area of work is so unstable that there is no firm future for us. We are both considering a career change, even though we both love what we do.
To top it off, we have started discussing selling our house and renting until we are both back working (after we're done having kids). This breaks my heart almost as much as having to delay my baby dreams . It took us a lot of hard work to save our downpayment, and even with our careful savings it took an inheritance from a loved family members' passing to help make up our deposit. I have been so proud of us for buying a home in our 20s and renovating it.... housing where we live is incredibly expensive and many young people (our friends) who are double-income-no-kids still can't afford to buy a home into their thirties. I'm terrified we will never get back into the market if we lose our asset now.
Poo-poo. I'm having my own pity party over here. It stinks. I'll still be around reading your posts and awaiting your BFPs with you, but it will be a while before I'm back on the TTC train. :(
