I'm 23 years old got married 4 months ago but been together for 6 years. we have a great relationship and have wanted a baby for a while. we decided to wait until we were married so now we are both ready now. we live in a rented property which sometimes worries me as having our own home would be nice. we are both working but my work is not as secure as his but i feel even without me working we would be able to live happily on his wage as we have done it before. so to get to the point I'm really wanting a baby its all I think about but i'm still worrying about home, money and my career but then I think just go for it life will fall into place and there is no ideal time.

Welcome to ehealthforum.
If you both have decided for having a baby, then go ahead with your pregnancy plans. Get a baseline check for both you and your husband. You will need hormonal tests and ultrasound scan to make sure things are fine. Your husband would require a semen analysis to see the sperm quality and quantity. Stop thinking about things that can distract your mind, unwanted tensions affect hormonal level and can affect your chances of pregnancy. If you are sure about your pregnancy plans, then go ahead with them.
All the best. Take care.
