Sorry if this is the wrong board. Hello all, I'm 20. My husband and I have been married since March, together for almost 6 years.

I can't escape the thought of wanting to have a baby. I know it's not necessarily the right time because my husband hasn't graduated just yet, but maybe it's just because I see my brother with his three daughters and my friend with her adorable new baby. We're in a completely stable housing situation, we wanted to try to wait until he gets his degree in a year or so until we TTC. But I'm finding it's hard to wait. I know babies are expensive and they grow up, but I just can't shake the desire of wanting to be a mom. [Frown] How can I, Idk, stop wanting to be a mom for now? [Frown]

Do you have to?

What I mean is this: we can want things. It's okay to want things. We also have the capacity to want things we know we aren't ready for, or know are best saved for a different time or set of circumstances. And we have the capacity to want things and at the same time wait for them.

So, you can still want to be a Mom and also wait until the timing is better to pursue that, right?
