You Love Television

If you love watching TV at home with your partner just as much as you love going out, then now could be the time for you to be expanding your family circle. If you don’t want to give up going out, seeing your friends or anything else of the sort, then this is a sign that you may not be truly ready to make that next big commitment.

You’re Okay with Tantrums

Tantrums happen at the end of the day, and it is something that every parent experiences. If you have witnessed stuff like this before and it doesn’t put you off having kids, then this is a sign that you are emotionally mature enough to have kids.

You’re Financially Stable

If you have kids already and are thinking about having another, then you have to make sure that you are financially stable enough to support an extra member of the family. If you have piling debts, a car that has just broken down and a boiler that is beyond repair, then you may want to hold off a little. If you can do this, then you will be able to revisit the conversation at a later date. After all, the last thing that you want is to have a baby and then go into debt that you can’t get out of as a result of bad timing. If you want kids but haven’t had much luck yet, then don’t forget, you can look into reciprocal IVF.

You’re Happy

This is quite possibly the most important point on this list. You should never think about having a child because you think it will make you happier. You should think about having kids because you are already happy and want to expand your family. After all, having more kids will not fix your relationship, if anything it will make things much harder for you, and this is the last thing you want if you and your loved one are already under strain.

It's All you Can Think About

If kids are all you can think about, then this is another clear indicator that now is the time for you to make a change. It may be that you can’t help but stare when you see someone with a pram, or that you just can’t wait to welcome a new member of the family into the world. Either way, if you have kids on your mind all the time, then this is a sign that you are ready. Just make sure that your partner feels the same way because if they aren’t as ready as you are, then this could end up putting a lot of stress on your relationship and this is the last thing that you want.
