Dear, pregnancy and planning for a baby is a life changing event. Its your personal decision to choose when to go fot it.
And honestly there is no guarantee for how much time it will take for you to concieve. People take from 6 months to upto 2 years if they are below 35 years of age to concieve.

Dont burden yourself with thoughts of firing, any ethical firm wouldnt fire just for being pregnant.
Hace faith in your skills and yourself.

Plan for your family when you want to and are ready for it not based on when market situation is good, since that will always be dynamic.

Thanks for your suggestion .now i am 30 .as i have pcod and thyroid ,i have to try now .. actually my family is financially depends on me .so that's why thought about firing during recession

If you are in the US, you cannot be fired for being pregnant - but you can be laid off during maternity leave, as long as others are being laid off at the same time (it isn’t discriminatory).

There is no foolproof plan - I would recommend saving as much money as you can and having a nest egg to fall back on.

After so many failures we are pregnant through IVF. Though my parents knew we were going through treatments never discussed in details. Early morning appointments, lots of medicines , lots of heartbreaks , trying everything we could. Being in an Indian household my mom didn’t acknowledge it which is okay but she thinks it’s okay to credit an aunt who prayed for us. I feel like someone else is stealing the thunder for all the hardships me and my husband had to go through. Just venting .
