Deciding when to have a family or expand your existing one can be difficult. There are a lot of factors to consider, including expenses, parenting time and, of course, your career. Maybe you have been planning this pregnancy or perhaps it was a wonderful surprise. Regardless, you've decided the time is right, and you're going to have a baby.
