Hi everyone. I need some advice. My husband and I married 3 years ago and then walked right into our fleet deployment squadrons. We are both pilots. Between work ups, deployments, and the home cycle we have spent no more than 2 months at a time even living under the same roof. We both just picked up shore tour orders and not a week later we started hearing pressure to get the "family" ball rolling. It's not that I don't want a baby but I feel that we have had so little time yet to even enjoy being a married couple and I don't want to jump into starting a family when we haven't even defined who we are together. I turn 30 next month so of course that's a huge factor but I feel like many women have started having children late in life. I'd love some sound advice from real people. Not just articles in the internet. Thanks!
