We both knew that we wanted children and that we weren’t getting any younger. However we had only known each other for 10 months! Should we start trying for a family right away or wait a while? I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer to this question but, even knowing what I do now, I have no regrets. We decided to wait six months and then try to get pregnant.
My sister and her husband had suffered from miscarriages and I knew the pain and stress that they caused. Would we be ready for that? We also wanted to spend time getting to know each other and enjoy being a couple. But we didn’t want to look back and ask “what if?” if we struggled to conceive. Six months felt like a good compromise.
