    @LittleButtons:  My SO and I have already decided to wait three months after we are married and then try. 

    I am a tax accountant and we would like to avoid having a February-April baby (if I can).

    We will be trying as soon as we get married. I’ll be going off BC after we say I do.

    Other – Got PG a month before the wedding. We both decided we wanted children right away. We got married at the end of July and thought it would be safe to start trying at the end of June because I thought it would take a while. Nope!

    @LittleButtons: I remember being old enough to realize — my parents got married March 17 and I was born December 17… of the same year. Honeymoon baby!

    @LittleButtons:  We waited a year to actively start trying, and we were successful. Our original plan was to start in October or late fall, but we couldn’t think of enough of a reason to wait. We had the house, the dog, and we were emotionall, physically, and financially ready so we had no good reason to wait.

    I stopped taking BC 2 weeks before the wedding so I O’ed on our wedding night. Didn’t work though. It took 5 more cycles.

    I got pregnant right on schedule, at our one year wedding anniversary. Not a poll option, so I didn’t vote.

    I’m 25, and DH is 30.

    @sugar_biscuit:  Wait what’s the reason for that? Not that I plan on having kids any time soon.

    We plan to wait 5-7 years to start TTC. We decided this is the perfect timeline for us since we are young and in no rush to have babies.
