  1. It is a daunting thought; but honestly, it’s not nearly as bad as people would have you believe! Life does become a big juggling act though…(but in a good way, lol.)

    I really liked reading this. Its true its never a right time to have a child and you never know if your relationship can withstand the pressure and extra responsibility. I myself having raised mine. It was never easy. But I finally realized that the best thing a parent can do for their children is to take care of themselves first and foremost so you can have the clarity and ability to be a good parent. Its true they are costly to raise, but I always stayed witin my means, had a budget for everything and well my family survived and we made it. Now I always worked and so did my spouse so we had to work split shifts so that someone was always at home for our kids. We felt like the dynamic duel. We worked it. Even when things didnt always go smoothly we worked thru it somehow. I believe as long as you back each other up and support each other. You can do well as a family. So best of luck to you both.

  3. Thank you so much for your kind comments. We completely get how challenging this is going to be, but at the same time so rewarding.

    I can be a bit of a worry wart sometimes, but with the strength provided to me by my loving wife K, I always calm down… eventually anyway.

  4. I don’t think there is a perfect time to have a baby (possibly 3 months before your MA dissertation is due is not it!), the day before I went in to be induced I was struck by this terrible panic that I couldn’t do it- how on earth was I going to cope with having a baby? I can’t even keep a pot plant alive! But after the first few weeks (which just pass in a haze of cuddles, milk and ouchy bits) it just slowly slots into place, and now I have no idea what I did with my time before he came along!
    I would deff recommend finding a good support network of other Mums- I see our NCT antenatal group at least once a week and we’re always emailing each other, it’s been a life saver!

    1. Hi there!

      Thank you so much for your reply – we always enjoy hearing stories from other mums. You very much like me – I do have a habit of killing plants or burning boiled eggs.

      I think we’ve been really lucky with the network we have already found via the blog and Twitter and at times the “network” have really helped us – not to mention really make us laugh. I can’t wait to meet new people along the journey.

      I am so happy to hear things worked out well for you… we will no doubt be posting more “ahhhhhhhh” and “HELP!!” posts – so watch this space! ;o)
