Trying to conceive

my son is turning three October. I wanted children close together to allow them to grow close together. Last year I fell pregnant unplanned and I miscarried. although the baby was unplanned it has some what made me want another now. All of my friends are all having babies which leaves me very broody. I know my partner would be a brill dad and he's always going on about children; he's great with my son (not his child). But on the other hand, I am due to start university in October and this would mean deferring a year, another factor is I live with parents. I am unemployed but partner works full time. Really want One but obviously circumstances are difficult. My friends tell me to have one yet family would like to see my finish uni and then have another. Uni would be another three years and then I'd have to get my foot in the door with employment and also the waiting game of concieving. whenever I'm late for my periods I do a test and get slightly disappiinted when I see one line but obviously some relief too (i am currently on the pill) but wanting to stop this as is causing migranes. Help please!!

Deciding when to have a baby can be tricky and your heart and head certainly seem to be in conflict! When finding myself pregnant in April (unplanned) I had a huge mental debate. There seemed endless reasons not to have a baby, all practical and relating to money! yet the one reason... The fact I was having a baby (which although I found very scary also made me incredibly happy!!) outweighed all the negative stuff. It ended up being a no brainer! The other way I looked at it is that I would never regret having a baby but likely to regret NOT having a baby! Speak to someone you trust.
I hope I may have helped in a small way xx
