We are 22 and 26 have owned the house we live in currently for 2 years. We are planning on waiting for atleast a year in a half to two years. We want to be in a new house, and as ready as we can be for starting a family. I also like that we would be roughly the ages our parents our now when out kids are our age, and I feel like I enjoy hanging out with my mom so much at our ages now that it’s only going to get better.

We’re not married yet but we’re planning on TTC when we get married (we’ll each be 24).

We’ve talked about it a lot. At first I wanted to wait until I was about 29 (4 years from now), but we’ve been talking lately about doing it sooner. We want to get some travelling done first (neither of us has been to Europe!). I would guess at this point we’ll be 26/27 when we try. That’ll be about a year after our wedding 🙂

We’re TTC right now at 31/35. We started a month before the wedding. I can’t wait for a happy, healthy baby!

We just got married almost 5 months ago and found out we are expecting. It wasn’t planned but didn’t prevent it either lol.  A little sooner then planned, but career wise it worked out for me to have the baby in the spring/summer time. Before hand though, we figured we wanted to ttc 6-8 months into our marriage. I’m 28, he’s 30 and I def do not want to be having my first baby in my 30s and even now  I feel like I’m old enough. We aren’t big travelers or anything like that so it’s not like we feel like oh we are missing out on anything. We’ve been together a few years and even though we don’t have a house yet, I would say within the next 5 years we will. I have an extremely nosey friend who is always asking our timeline for things. She assumed we would wait at least 5 years..I thought she was crazy and at this age would never wait that long, but that’s just me personally. And of course we both feel ready which is the most important thing!!

We are 27 and 29 and hopefully will start TTC within the next year. Most people in our circle of friends have waited about a year before TTC.

We waited about 2 years, we just celebrated our anniversary last month.  Our little one is due in April and I’ll be 27 and he’ll be 28.

We got married at 32 and 33.  Started trying 9 months later and were successful on the first try.  We were engaged for 9 months, too, so we seem to enjoy throwing a major milestone into our lives about every 9 months…  🙂
