We are just getting into a position where we are going to be financially okay....We moved across the U.S. for my fiance's job and my daughter is 17 months. We have been here in a new state for 3 months now and I want to have another baby...in like a year or so. We are going to stay in this state for 3-5 years until my fiance gets all his training and work experience so that when we do move back, he will have a shot at finding a job in the area we want to settle in back in our home state.
I feel real guilty about getting pregnant and having a baby so far away from my family. Like my mom will be dissapointed about not being with me to help out like she did with my daughter. She wont be around for my daughter's birth or anything. To top it off, my family thought I was too young to have a baby, and a second would not make too many of them happy for me...they'd be more like, "why is she having kids? she should be finishing school." I'm 22 by the way.
Has anyone had a baby when they were living real far away from family? How did you and the rest of the family feel about it? Is it selfish of me to just go ahead and do it or would it be right? Should I just wait until we're almost ready to move again? I am really torn between having a baby soon or later...
