DH and I are somewhere in between 7-10 years, and undecided if we even want children. I know I would want to be 100% when we started, but I don’t think that’ll happen for a long while, if ever. DH feels about the same.
What is your timeline? Are there certain factors that helped decide this timeline (money, career, etc.)?

We said after 6 months we’d start trying 🙂

Timeline is a few months from now…maybe. Hubby and I will be having our 7-year wedding anni this year (and we’ve been together for over 10 years). We married young, but now time is zipping by and I will be 30 in the summer. I’m kind of on the fence about children, but decided around New Year’s to go off the Pill (but still use condoms). We own our home, have a decent household income (both self-employed from home, which is a bonus), and have no reason *not* to have kids–other than the fact that we are not really anxious to have them either. DH is good with children, though he could also go either way when it comes to having our own. We won’t be TTC until May at the earliest; in the meantime, I’m reading up on pregnancy and childcare to try and make an informed decision (even though I know reading about and experiencing children are two very different things…) I’d also like to take one last “big” trip just the two of us before TTC, which we’ve already planned for May.

We will start this summer (by start I mean go off bc and just not do anything to prevent, but no serios charting, temping, or anything like that until after a year of “not trying not to”. I have gotten a house now, which si something we wanted before baby becuase we just don’t have enough room in an apt. I also wanted to make DH a daddy before 30, and he just turned 28 yesterday, so it seems acceptable to start then. We are both ready to be parents if God wants us to be 🙂

we’re starting in april. the biggest factor for starting then and not now is that i don’t want to be out on maternity leave at the end of this year. i get a bonus in december and i don’t want anything messing that up. realistically, i know it could take awhile to get pregnant but knowing my luck, i’d get pregnant on the 1st try if we started now.

DH and I are planning on trying after my April cycle, which is going to be here fast! I’m on my last pack of BC. My OBGYN recommended us staying on the pill until 2 cycles before we wanted to try. Based off of my health history, she said that after one cycle off, I should be a little more regular.
I would love to conceive in June or July, because I could take my maternity leave and go right into summer break, but I know that there’s a plan for everything. I just have to be patient! I feel like I have my mind so set on it happening within the first 3 cycles. I’m really nervous about this because I know there’s a chance it won’t. Looking at family history, there hasn’t been any problems with conception, but watch me be the first one.

Hubby and I are trying right now. In fact I’m due for AF anyday now and the waiting is killing me… I’ve been feeling funny lately (as in very mildly queasy which is worse in the evening). My fingers are crossed

We’re TTC next cycle! Mr Rugbee has been established in his career for a couple of years now and we’re both very ready for that next step (despite the fact that I have another year of school). We got married, bought our home and now it just feels right. Plus I’ve had baby fever since the day after the wedding day!
