Well, we already have a child so I am sure that changes things but I would have been happy with a honeymoon baby but almost 4 weeks later we are still trying 🙂

My goal is two years, but I don’t know if I’ll be able to wait that long! I have wanted kids my entire life. Maybe we’ll wait a year or so until we start trying, so that way the baby doesn’t come until closer to two years.

Honestly, we’ll probably just figure all of this out as it happens! 🙂

Seems like a lot of Bees ae waiting for about a year.

BUT , It really depends on what the couples desires are for children!

That totally depends on how old I am and where I am in life when I get married.  If I were 21, I would probably say I’d way 3-5 years.  If I’m 27, maybe 2 years.  I’m in my 30s, so I dont want to wait, but I will cause I still want to do some more traveling, so I’m waiting a year.

I will be 24 when we get married and my fiance will be 27. We plan on waiting until I am 29 to start TTC.

We are waiting 3-4 years.  Preferably 4, but we both wants kids so we might not hold out that long.

I was 23 and DH was 24 when we got married.  We planned to wait 3-4 years.  It’s been a little over a year at this point (we’re 24 and 25 now) so 2-3 years to go!

We wanted to enjoy just being a small family of 2 as well as get to a point financially where we could afford for me to be a SAHM while still being able to afford to go out to nice dinners and go on vacation occasionally.

We’re wating about 4 years, both 24, but it’s mostly because of DH’s job and that he’ll be deploying for 6 months out of each year for 4 years.  I don’t really want to go through pregnancy and birth alone, plus 28 is still very young, so it’s perfect.  All my friends think we’re nuts, but they’re already on kid #2… it’s all about what’s right for you as a couple.

We plan to wait about 8-9 years.  We are getting married at 26 (that’s the first thing people ask when we say we want to wait long).

We’ll be 28 and 34 when we get married, and we plan to wait about a year or so until we start trying.

4-5 years for us.  I decided to go back to school and want to be working a year or two before getting pregnant.
