I guess it comes down to priorities and what feels right for you both.
Perhaps you and your partner could each make a list of your goals for the next few years (buying a house, holiday, another child etc.) and then you can sit down together and compare them. Work out which goals you share, which ones you don't, and then have a discussion about how you can prioritise them and make up a basic timeline. E.g. Work for 2 more years to save money for house deposit, then try for baby. If you find it difficult to discuss this with your partner, then a neutral third party in the form of a counsellor would be a great idea.
We are only now having our third baby (5 years after DD was born) because we agreed that our main priority was to finish buidling our house before we tried for another child.
