We plan on buying a home, taking a few more vacations (Europe, South America & East Coast) and just enjoying a few more years as a couple. We are 29 and 30. So we will probably start TTC when I am 33 or 34.

@caits615:  My FI waited 10 years to propose. Luckily, he is not anxious to have children yet 🙂

Before having children I definitely want to travel quite a bit, if possible by an apartment, and spend a lot of money on myself!

Ideally we’ll both have secure jobs by the time we TTC. Although the idea of having children is really lovely, I feel uneasy at the thought of having a child in uncertain financial times.

We’re ready and trying and it just hasn’t happened yet!  But we wanted to be married, graduated from school and stable in our jobs, own a home, and get a dog.  All done, just waiting on the little one now!
