Waiting to have a baby?

FROM NBC: Many women are putting their plans to have a Baby on hold -- at least until the economy gets better. In a survey of more than a thousand women in their childbearing years --
14-percent said the ailing economy has had an effect on their plans to increase
The size of their families.

12-percent knew of someone who'd postponed a pregnancy for financial reasons. 14-percent had also cited the bad economy for postponing a trip to the Gynecologist for an annual check-up.

The survey was conducted for the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.

This makes sense to me! We are still trying to figure out how we are going to afford boy #3! They can at least hand down some sporting equipment and hopefully some of the shoes that only got worn a few times! The clothes are basically a disaster. So I don't think they'll be worn again!

Are you waiting to have a baby until the economy gets better?

The National Cancer Institute has discovered a disturbing trend linking women and melanoma: between 1973 and 2004, melanoma incidence among women aged 15 to 39 more than doubled, from 5.5 to 13.9 cases per 100,000. The Skin Cancer Foundation, in an international study has linked melanoma to tanning bed usage.

On average more than 1 million people tan in tanning salons every day in the United States. It is estimated, there will be 116,500 new cases of melanoma diagnosed in the United States this year in people of all ages; 8,420 of these cases will be fatal.
