We’ve always wanted children. We knew right after the wedding we would start trying. We had been together 5 years before we were married.

We had talked about it off and on before we even got engaged. I wasn’t completely sold on the idea and continued to take my pill. Surprise, conceived a couple weeks before the wedding and did not know until after the honeymoon. I was a month late and felt really bloated so I took the test. I had mixed emotions of excitement and worry when it was positive . Showed my husband and he hugged me and was just beside himself. He was really happy when the contractions started to come and he said he got this euphoric feeling when the surgeons pulled her out of me (c-section).  Our 1 year anniversary is coming up already and the year has really gone by fast. We love our little baby very much and it is a learning process, we hope we will be great parents. That said…I immediately went on the shot and don’t plan on having another any time soon lol.

FI had a vasectomy years ago and our chances are 50% now if he was to get it reversed (he has two kids from previous marriage)

We are planning to get it reversed early next year and try. If it works it will be great (we would only like one child) if it doesn’t, well I guess we will be getting another fur baby LOL

We wanted to have fun and not worry about children for a while after marriage. We’ve been married 2 1/2 years, together for 5, and TTC is still a couple of years away for us. Only having a few years of “us” time was simply not enough. There is way too much to see/do/accomplish! We’ve seen how kids bring our friends’ lives to a screeching halt, how they hardly ever get to do anything just for themselves, and it just isn’t a sacrifice we are willing to make yet. I’m 29 (will be 30 this year) and DH is 35 (almost 36).

My Dh is 5 years older than me, and we are actually planning on trying after our 1 year anniversary. However, we are at the point that we will be happy if it happens before then, too. πŸ™‚ I have always wanted kids, but I have such baby fever since getting married.

We got married last June. We’ve both always wanted kids, but I’ve been more vocal about it until lately. DH has been mentioning babies a lot more, talking about all the stuff we would take our kids to do and see. Which is super cute! We decided we are going to take this year to get things in order (pay off some debt, find a bigger place to live, etc.) Around Christmas I will go off my BC pills and then we will probably start actively TTCing in March or April πŸ™‚

I’ve had “baby fever” for a while now. DH and I have been together since our freshman year of high school, and became engaged in February of 2009 at the age of 19. Around that time is when the desire to have children really struck me. I have always loved kids, and all of my employment experience has been in preschool and child care, so nurturing is just in my nature. Regardless of the urge to be a mommy, DH and I agreed that we wanted to be married before TTC. After we got married this past October, we began discussing and prepping for TTC, and actually started TTC in January. I’m hoping we’ll have a “bun in the oven” by summer! If so, we’ll both be 24 when baby arrives.

Fi and I will be married in July and we are going to start TTC in July also. We have been really struggling to wait until after the wedding since we both want it so bad, but we have to be strong. I love my wedding dress and want to be able to fit in it!
