I am in a dilemma and hoping that you wonderful women will shed some light on this matter. A little about myself, I am 30yrs of age married, my husband is a consultant and is working out of state. Currently enrolled in accounting classes to meet the requirements for the CPA exam. I will be done with my classes in June. I was initially planning to have a baby this year since i am already 30 and feel that I should not wait any longer. But, my situation is such that I don't know what to decide whether i should sit for the cpa exam this year or plan to have a baby first. If i sit for the exam it will most likely take me a year to pass all four parts of the exam. If i have a baby then it will most likely be extremly difficult to put all my time into studying. No matter if i get help from parents or in-laws. My Husband is fond of kids a lot and appears to me that he wants to have a baby soon, but he is also aware of the fact that i will have to sit for the exam. He tells me you can study even if you are pregnant. Most probably the first few months will be rough with all the pregnancy symptoms and then who knows how my pregnancy will turn out to be. To sum it up hubby as left it on me since I guess he is fine with whatever i decide. So, what do you ladies think, i should do?
