- Wedding: September 2009
Thoughts? Want them? When?
Thoughts? Want them? When?
Nope. not anytime soon. Maybe 35. Though FH says at least one by 30.
Gonna start trying at 28-29 (I’m 24 now), in case I have fertility problems. (I’m an only child– my mother wasn’t supposed to be able to have children). Everything looks normal for me as of now, but just in case. He wants 2, I want 3. We’ll see. :p
I have 2… I want 1 more. I am only 25 so we have plenty of time. My only thing is that my oldest is 6 and I don’t want him to be super old with the 3rd one. I am hoping next year we will be in a better position to start trying for a 3rd.. maybe not, we will just have to wait and see.
Definitely, we are ready, just waiting for the wedding to happen first.
My FI is 32 now, so we will be trying a year or so after the wedding(he will be 34 and I will be 28). We have been together for four years and children have always been a priority for us, so we want to start as soon as our jobs allow it.
We are realizing that this isn’t an instant thing for us, but we’re getting all of our ducks in a row to try.
FI will be 24 and I’ll be 22, so we probably won’t start trying for about 5 years or so. Late twenties is my goal to start trying just in case we have fertility issues, but we will probably have our second child into our 30s because I don’t want to have two kids in diapers at the same time! FI wants three, I want just two, but if we have two of the same gender, I might want to adopt a child of the other gender.
Fun to think about!
Yep – I’m in mid 30s and he’s in mid 40s so no time to waste. if we entirely up to me the order would go:
move into together, babies, engagement, wedding
but he is more traditional so it will go engagement, wedding/babies
I’m not gonna lie, I would love to start trying now! I love me some babies! But, we are still getting our house in order and stuff, so maybe in about 2 years or so.
I want babies now too! But we are waiting til I’m down with graduate school, and I’ll be 30yo then. And I’m really paranoid about fertility issues. Our biggest dilemma is to decide to buy a house before or after having a baby. I say before because I want that stability. He says we wont be able to afford a house by that time, so he wants baby first. But Im thinking if we cant afford a house can we really afford a baby?
Nope, babies are not for me, at least not anytime soon and I am going to 32 by the end of the year. I want to focus on career, have fun, adventures and travel around the world first.
Although, it’s always good to have some time to enjoy the marriage before jumping in and popping babies out. No matter anyone says, children does changes things and the marriage. I also can’t stand people who have children just for the sake of having kids, but do not take the responsibility of parenting them.
It’s something I definitely will think long and hard about before just jumping in.
no kids for us. i don’t see myself raising them! neither does he. we’ll just be the uncle / aunt who spoils them
Absolutely! Three or four. My personal timeline is that they’re not going to happen until I’m published, or not until I’m 24/25. It’s younger than I would have started otherwise, but my SO is eight years older and already getting the baby bug planted by his friends.
My fiance wanted to start as soon as we got engaged… since we were gonna do a long engagement… He’s nuts! But we do want to start as soon as we’re married. We are really really ready. And we’ve heard all the talk about being married first but we’ve been together for 7 years, living together for 5, we’ve done so much together and I want at least 1 child before I’m 30, and I’m almost. I hope it happens shortly after the wedding.
