i am 25 years old and will be married for 2 years next month. I am Dying to have a baby. I am soo broody and every time i help my sister-in-law with her baby I feel the "need" to have one of my own more and more. the problem is that my husband insists that we wait until we are finacially ready. when are you financially ready??? i mean the more you earn the more you'll spend and i think we can afford it. we have our own house with a garden, we have 2 cars and he just got a R3000 salary increase. he says we can think about a baby maybe in 2 years!!!! I can't wait that long :( i have the loop as a contraceptive and evry month I pray that by some miracle i will be the 1 woman in 1000 that falls preganant (the loop is 98% safe!) what should i do??

I can't help you with this. Perhaps joint counselling may be helpful.
