Help Help me choose one of these three paths

Hey ppl !! I am an Indian img, yog 2011, givin step 1 on june 25, ck and cs not yet given, have research experience during ug, married, ( my husband is in the exact scenario as mine )

Which is a better option :

1. Apply for 2014 match : Go for visa interview without step 1 scores and if suppose i get visa, go to US in July and august for usce and lors, give step 2 cs in July end and ck in September, be ecfmg certified by October 13 ( 2 us lors but a big risk for visa rejection )

or

2. Apply for 2014 match : wait for step 1 scores ( july 17th 2013), go for the visa interview after this, go to US in aug 2013, give step 2 cs by august end, ck by september end, be ecfmg certified by October 13 ( only 1 us lor )

or

3. Apply for 2015 match : Take steps slowly, gain usce, maybe some research experience, develop contacts ( visa will be an issue, donno if i can significantly improve my cv and yog will be a prob along with the 2015 img issues )

I am totally confused.

Please help !!!!

Planning for Ped residency and my husband IM !
