My hubby just told me with a smile and a cuddle on Saturday morning that he wants to pull the goalie!  Woohoo!

Well I hope everything is ok, either way. 

We are definitely NOT ready. We have been married..well..a month tomorrow. lol  So not long.  And we are both still attending college and working, no way are we ready.  I can’t wait til the day that we are though.  I’m very excited for our future, but we have a long way to go.

Totally waiting. Mr. Peep starts grad school in two weeks, so we have two years before we can go down that road. But the good news- Mr. Peep is already starting to feel comfortable with the idea of having a baby- he he and so am I. But I won’t go down that road until he has a full time job.

BTW- how very exciting!! I am sure mini-crab would love another crabette!!

I hope everything is ok!  We are waiting, about 1.5-2 years to start trying.  Depending on some things we might start trying earlier but almost definitely not until were at our 1 year anniversary. We both want kids, but we do want to enjoy time together before we start trying.

Waiting… maybe talking about it in a couple years (when I’m 30). Sometimes (and by sometimes I mean always) I wish that your 20s could last for 2 decades! We haven’t traveled enough as a couple, and work keeps us so busy that we haven’t found a lot of time to. I’d love to see the world with Mr. Peng before we tried for a baby.

We’re waiting, but it’s the first time in my life that I thought it might be alright and everything would be okay if I did have a baby. It would certainly be tough though! As well as unexpected. Mrs. CrabCake – can you take a pregnancy test?

Definitely waiting. Hopefully like 5 years. I’m still in school and we are still working on fixing up our ONE bedroom home, so no room for a baby! We defiantly both want them when the time is right but now is not the right time! I hope everything works out for you.

Ready!  Well… at least I like to think we’re ready… but to be honest, sometimes the thought of being knocked up *right now* instead of just in the abstract *soon* scares the crap out of me.

It’s a good thing I have a bio clock that’s finally kicked in, or otherwise I’d never get around to having kids!

Ooh, and I hope everything is ok with you CC!

Waiting til after the wedding! But just last night, I was reading about the importance of prenatal vitamins even up to 5 years before you start trying, and then it hit me like a ton of bricks! Haha!

Also, I feel more nervous about getting pregnant now than I did before I got engaged. Strange!

We’ll be waiting. We’re ready, but we’ve also got other things we want to accomplish first (namely, finish school, but also spend more time together with just the two of us). Probably will be at least a few years before we start trying.

We’re not married yet, but if we were ready we’d pull the goalie regardless.  (By the way, that is TOO funny Nicgac!  My IUD has now been named The Goalie.  That’s brilliant.)  We are NOT, however, ready just yet.  Like Cheerful, for the first time in our lives it would be ok if it happened but we’re not looking for it.  I want to be settled and have a house before chillins come along.  My fiance went to something like 8 different schools and lived it half a dozen states.  I pretty much had the same classmates for grades 1-12 and lived within 2 miles of the house my parents lived in when I was born until I left for college.  I want my childhood for our kids, not so much his.  

And sending good thoughts your way CC!

Waiting, waiting, waiting! We are young, broke, and nomadic right now. We definitely want to settle in our careers a bit, pick a city to stay in, save some money, and travel before we go there. Good luck Mrs. CC!
