I always wanted to be a young mom…but teaching kindergarteners and second graders got that out of my system!  So I’d love to wait at least 2 years after we get married.

Mr. Pudding and I both really want to have a family.  I would be really surprised if we didn’t have a child by our second aniversary.

I am getting married at 27, and we plan to begin trying around 30 years old. I will have been a student until I am 27, so for me, it’s important that I have time to start my career and enjoy married life with my husband before bringing any kids into the mix.

I would like to wait to have kids until I am done with all of my degrees, which if everything goes as planned will be around 28-29. I will hopefully be married at 24 so that gives us a couple of years to enjoy married life πŸ™‚

@parfait: I used to think I wanted to be a young mom too. I just couldn’t imagine being in my late 50s, pushing 60 when my kids graduated high school. Working with kids these past three years has changed my perspective on just how young of a mom I want to be πŸ˜‰

I would like to ideally start trying next year, but I think the hubby wants to start trying the year after.  Guess only time will tell…

@babyboo:  Exactly. : )  I’d love to be done with my degrees, too, but I’ll probably still be in grad school.  Wonder how that will work out!

My bf/FI is younger than me by a few years which is not much but enough to make a difference.  He’s still finishing up his undergrad degree (hence the summer wedding) and I’ve completed my Masters and am working towards licensure.  We both want children but I’m thinking it will probably be about 4 years before we actually start that whole process.  I figure that way he should hopefully be done with his degree and I will be licensed and have a bit more flexibility with schedule, etc.

Well once we got married we kind of had the whatever happens attitude towards planning for children. So let’s just say there was a bit of shock when I found out we really were pregnant. I had no idea it was going to happen so quickly. I made a silly assumption that me being on the pill for nearly 10 years would have slowed the process down… but no. Apparently we really are rabbits πŸ™‚

As soon as possible! We’ve been married less than two weeks, but we’re already trying!

Congrats, Roddybride! I don’t know how I missed hearing the good news!! πŸ™‚

We want to wait 3 or 4 years but I really want to have at least 1 before I’m 30.

@Laylabelle – Thanks!! It really is an exciting time for us!

For some reason I have kept my distance from WeddingBee and I have been real lazy with updating my blog. Sorry! I think this pregnancy has kept me exhausted and less motivated to do anything.

@RoddyBride09: Congratulations!

We originally wanted to wait two years after marriage before having kids, since once they’re here, that’s it in terms of doing what we want whenever we want to. We’ve lately been talking about potentially trying next year though, which means that we’ll have been married one year before trying. Not sure yet whether it will happen or not, but I can feel the baby fever rising…and we’ve been telling everyone that we want to wait for at least a couple of years!

We’re getting married in April and I’m hoping we’ll be expecting by the end of the year – never know until we try!  ;o)

I’m aiming to start in my mid twenties, so in about 4-5 years. It’s important to me to be healthy and energetic for my children as long as possible, and I’d love to see my grandkids grow up. πŸ™‚
