Waiting... Planning... Too Many Decisions...I'm 23 years old. I will be graduating from college next spring. Next September (2008), I will be getting married. Unfortunately, I want to be an actress. I love singing and acting and theatre; it's what my major is in college. However, it puts a huge cramp in the "starting a family" schedule. My fiance is an electrician who is currently doing his apprenticeship in our hometown. After I graduate next spring, he will still have two (three?) years left before we can move to Chicago so that I can really pursue my career. We can't decide whether it would be better to try for a baby as soon as we get married (something that we're not sure if we can afford), or if it would be better to wait until we are more settled and financially stable. I'm mostly concerned about waiting because it took my mother a long time to get pregnant. She had me 6 years after she got married, when she was 30, and my sister when she was 36. They started trying as soon as they got married and then again 2 years after they had me and both times it took quite a long time. It makes me scared to wait because I want to have at least two kids and I feel like that won't happen if I wait too long.
