If you did have another baby in 9 months time, you would cope somehow. Money might be tight for a while, but somehow you'll cope. I have 2 girls and 2 boys and I am 37 now, otherwise I would love more (as my baby is only 19 months)
Would your husband feel more ready in another year? Could you meet halfway and wait another few months?
Good luck, whatever you decide.
Hi. We struggled due to childcare cost but then we decided sod it, we'll find a way. With me staying at home the tax credits were adjusted & we actually work out exactly the same as we did before. Having said that my old job was on rubbish pay. We had Mia then tried again after 9 months & was lucky to get pregnant straight away. Since Ava arrived I'm a ful-time mum & part-time student & Lee has changed jobs to have better hours.
I know what you mean with worrying about random things. I bought 5 litres of washing up liquid & things like that in case I had to stay in hospital for ages as Lee can't drive. Things have a way of working out. I worried Mia would feel pushed out with having another but it actually seems easier now there are 2 of them.
I hope you are able to go with whatever you decide. Good luck & happy new year. X
There never seems to be enough money spare to afford another child but it works out somehow! Our youngest girls were not planned and I panicked how I would afford too. It meant cutting back on some things and trying to live to a budget but it worked out in the end and you adjust to it. Don't forget you can have your daughter in nursery/pre-school for 15hrs for free once she is 3 yrs old and in my experience the eldest child costs a lot more than their younger siblings. You usually already have all the expensive basics you need from last time and can reuse them.
Hope it all goes well for you! xx
