    Married October 2012, and started TTC in February 2015. It would have been sooner, but I was on a med that could contribute to spina bifida, so I had to get off of that first. 

    In July 2015 we were referred to fertility; several issues were discovered on my side. More waiting after dealing with an oncologist (no sign of cancer, thankfully). Several cancelled IUI cycles followed and we pursued IVF in August 2016. Successful first transfer in November 2016, currently 20 weeks pregnant. 

    I will be 30 and DH 37 when baby arrives and we will be married 4 1/2 years.

    I didn’t vote because we haven’t actually started trying yet and aren’t married haha, but the plan is to wait around 2-3 years after we get married. I’m taking professional courses outside of school and we’re both part of opening a retail shop/restaurant that will be really demanding. I want to finish school and then have 1-2 more years of fun ‘just us’ time, as well as focus on our careers and hopefully buy a place. I’ll be 33/34 and he’ll be 32/33.

    We’ll only have been together 2 years by the time we get married as well so i think it will help to have a couple more years to really settle in to the relationship. I would probably wait longer if biology were on my side though.
