Its sad because I really was working towards my dream of being a mom by the time I wanted- but jobs suck
and everything is SO darn expensive.
I'm ready... but our expenses arent
I think the thing to keep in mind is to not panic
(this is what I have to tell myself when I start freaking out like this). First of all, there are many, many people who are "older" and just starting out their families. Hey, maybe it's not your ideal plan to start having kids when you're 30-35, but things happen for a reason, right?
And let's imagine that you were in a situation where you were pregnant now. You'd be pretty panicked, right? Because from what you're saying, it sounds like you're not in a position (and I KNOW I'm not in a position) to be having kids. I know I'd be questioning if I'd done the right thing and if I was really ready for a baby. So, as hard as it is, I think you need to have faith that things happen for a reason and that everything will work out. EVEN IF IT'S THE HARDEST THING EVER TO WAIT!
