    1.5 years after marriage, we were 26 and 30. We had many things we wanted to accomplish as well.

    We’re an older than average couple getting married. Got married last Saturday and after the ceremony he said “so, time to stop taking the pill, right?” 

    I’m 34 and he’s 38.

    Started TTC just after 4 years (took us 2 months). I started a part time MBA after we got married and I had no interest in trying to take care of a baby while working and going to school. I was 31 and DH was 39 when our son was born.

    We started TTC a year and 3 months after we got married. I’m 26 and DH is 30.  We would have started sooner because he has a 9yo son and we don’t want to extend the age difference any more than we have to, but I’ve been finishing up a graduate degree that required me to work in a solvent wet lab.

    Started trying at the two years married mark. It took us 2+ years of TTC. Our first baby is due two months before our 5 year anniversary. I’ll be 27 and DH 31 when our son is born.

    We started TTC about a year and a half after we were married. Granted we were together six years before we were married so we’d done most of the things on our bucket list. Dh was 34 and I was 30. It only took us three months and now our baby is 3 months old.

    I voted although DH and I haven’t started TTC yet lol – we just got married in December and plan to start TTC in June (so 6 months after our wedding). I am almost 27 and DH is almost 26. We’ve been together 10 years this coming July, so I’m sure that this has factored into our decision to TTC relatively quickly after getting married.

    We are a little older – I was 32 and DH was 37 when we got married. And we didn’t think we wanted kids. Then we thought and talked a lot about adopting.

    Then when we’d been married about 10 months, DH said “you know, we could try to make our own baby.”  I’d never felt more excited or more afraid in my life. After a month or so, I decided he was right. I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I wanted to try to have a baby the old fashioned way. So I got my iud out. Then DH was offered a job 1500 miles away from where we were living. That slowed us down (it’s hard to make a baby when you’re living in different time zones!).  Finally I sold our house and moved too  

    This month was our second cycle TTC. We’ve been married for almost 19 months. I’m 34, he’s 39. Hopefully it doesn’t take us too long, but since we are a little older, I’m prepared for any eventualities (I think).
