    Wow, your poll only goes to 2 years before dropping off into “+” land? Haha. Does everyone you know immediately have kids or something?

    Our 3 year anniversary is next month. We’ll probably still wait another couple of years. Lots of travel to do and goals to accomplish!

    We were -7 months married… lol

    Which then turned in to -16 months because I didn’t want to get married at 7-8 months pregnant.

    We were NTNP and got pregnant a little earlier than expected (we were going to aim like 3-4 months before our wedding).

    We are going to start ttc Jan 2014, 6 months after our wedding.

    Originally I wanted to wait a year, but due to us both being in our late 30’s, we are going to start ttc earlier.  Jan 2014 is perfect, right after the holidays, all wedding things should be done (albums, ty’s and prints) and less stress.

    FI pretty much wants to start trying now. I told him I don’t want to until after the wedding (1 year, 217 days). I might compromise and get my iud out 3 months before the wedding. Could make for some cute ‘weddig crasher’ announcement photos!

    We currently live with his mom, and I refuse to be pregnant in her house. FSIL just had a baby and FMIL was so negative ALL THE TIME. Talking all the time about potential problems, complications, etc. I wanted to kill her. That plus prego hormones? Never.

    We started TTC on our 1-year anniversary… It was the right time to have a baby then, but had I known it would take us a year+ to get pregnant I would have started sooner.

    @amandasouthcarolina:  We’re planning to wait at least a year after we’re married.  We’re in our late twenties/early thirties and don’t want to wait TOO long – but we met a little later in life and would like to spend some time together alone and do some traveling first.
