Definitely ready! I’m 31 and DH is 30 and I/we have an 11 year old that is dying to be a big sister. We’re doing a surprise trip to Disney in June and I do not want to be pregnant for the trip – or our family vacation to the OBX in July/August. Maybe after that?!!

YES! We got married last November and it’s on my mind very often. We are young as well, 21, and are waiting a little bit longer so that we can pay off some things and save more money but it’s becoming more and more difficult to have good patience!

I just got married this month and already have baby fever!!! Haha
We’re holding off though. We still have to graduate school. Husband will graduate this winter and I will next spring. We’d also like to move out of state. Not that we need to be moved by the time we decide to TTC, but I’d at least like to have some sort of plan. I just look at baby names and think of nursery ideas until the time is right! I try not to look too into it, because unlike the wedding… Planning for a baby is something I definitely want my husband more involved in. Wedding planning was all about the bride (kidding! Sort of) 😉 But baby names and nursery wall colors is about the both of us 🙂
Husband is 26 and I’m about to turn 26 in August. I think we’d ideally like to start TTC when we are 27.

My husband and I got married in June 2014 and wanted to start TTC right after the wedding, but then we decided to wait for a year so we could have 1 more year for us to just enjoy being newly weds. I have wanted to have a baby since I was like 18 and I’m gonna be 28 in 5 months, but I wanted to be married first and it just hasn’t been the right time up until now. I feel like I’ve waited forever so I’m already getting discouraged, but I think that’s because 3 people I know recently announced they were pregnant. 1 got pregnant on her honeymoon and the other was pregnant a month after the wedding which is around when we started trying. Oh well I know my time will come. Sorry had to vent. Lol

I am full baby fever, we have discussed and always knew we will have kids but it was always hard to nail down a time frame. on the honeymoon we had a big talk about it and finally I have a time…..next year. So as you can imagine this year is dragging. trying to bring it forward but hubby wanting to hold out. Im 31 and if we wait till next year i will be 32 by the time the bub is born…..thats if we dont have any trouble falling pregnant that is. I guess thats my concern is that if we wait then we have trouble thats more time wasted…..

This thread couldn’t come quick enough for me. I have massive baby fever. Fiance doesn’t but he thinks it’s sweet and is open to the idea in the next year or so.
Here are the nurseries I’ve seen that I love:

I’m 23 he is 25. he has 1.5 years left of school then hes already got a few engineering jobs lined up! I didn’t have baby fever until last week. A friend of mine asked if we were going to try to get pregnant after we got married. My initial reaction was no! But then she was like “well if you wait a year after your married and then try and conceive then you’ll still be pregnant for another 9 months! He’ll be down with school and onto his new job!” it was the first time I’d ever realistically thought about having a baby. However… I hung out with my 5 nieces and nephews today and… I think I’m good with no kids for a whileeeeeeee lol

I have it and we’re still 31 days out from the wedding!

This is how I feel. I’m 30 now, and the wedding is still a month out. I’ve looked Fiance square in the eyes and said “I want a baby, and I know you want to wait six months after the wedding, but it’s not like we’re going to do anything with those six months. Just the same stuff we’re always doing. And if we have issues, we’re going to want those six months back.” That got him to agree to start trying immediately after the wedding. I’m 30 and he’s 29, so it’s not like we’re still kids. I’ve also told him the baby maker shuts down at 35. There are too many complications that can arise and I’m not willing to risk it, so it’s babies now or babies never.

Just got married at the beginning of the month and have had baby fever since before the wedding! Hubs is on board too and always staring at babies when we’re out and we are both enjoying the newborns in our social circle. We need to wait a little longer though as I’m in a wedding in August and don’t want to be super pregnant for that. We will likely start trying in six months. In the meantime I’ve started a TSA for when I’m on maternity leave to help supplement by income a bit and we are moving into a larger 3 bedroom rental home at the end of this month and using some of the wedding money to furnish it. We’re also taking a delayed honeymoon to Punta Cana at the beginning of February.

OP, I think at your age, most people don’t realize yet how much work a baby is. Young people often just see the amazing sides- A cute, little toddler who brightens your day and makes you feel complete. I was the same when I was 20- I had been dating my boyfriend for a long time and we were talking marriage and kids. I really wanted a baby back then, because I really loved babies and wanted one of those cute little things for myself. Not saying you’re like me, but many are. Now I’m 27, married and SO glad I didn’t have a baby back then. Throughout the years I realized how much work a baby is and how much you’re giving up. It’s not just honey and sunshine.
Myself, I recently started thinking about having a baby (newlywed too), but even I, with the ripe age of 27, still think that I have time 😉
I’d recommend you to enjoy your early to mid twenties, enjoy the time with your husband and try not to obsess over a baby. You still have a LOT of time 🙂

Yes yes YES! Been married for a little over a month. I’m 27, he is 29. We have been together for 4 1/2 years, and living together for 3 1/2…so it’s not like we haven’t had enough time for ourselves. We are in the process of buying a condo, and will have that wrapped up by Christmas…after that IT’S BABY MAKING TIME!!!
