What do I do? We can't really afford another one yet, but that doesn't seem to satisfy my heart and baby-growing equipment - they want it and they want it NOW.
Part of being a responsible adult is delaying gratification and not getting everything you want right away when you want it.
Wait 6 months and see how DH's new job is working out and what your financial situation is then. Go over to LBYM and reread your posts about how broke you were/are due to his unemployment.
What did y'all do when you wanted another child, but knew it wasn't the right time? Sleep in separate houses?
One word: condoms. They're available at Wal-Mart, Target, and lots of other places. www.drugstore.com has a good selection.
At the end of the day, it's your (and your DH's) choice, but I strongly suggest waiting.
