- Wedding: April 2014 - Italian Villa
When I am around a family with mature, well-adjusted children, I think, yes! How rewarding! But then I’ll run into a major meltdown and think that I want to get my tubes tied. I exaggerate, of course, but I’m sure others can relate.

craigslistgirl: I am in the same boat! We had thr baby talk the other night. We decided in about 2-3 years we want to TTC. So tons of time for us to be together. But at the same time those years will be some very cherished times.

KHogan: I have baby fever something fierce. I’m getting married in October and Fiance and I go back and forth over when we want to try. On the one hand, we would really love to try sooner rather than later as it may be a little harder for me to get pregnant, but on the other hand we really want to enjoy being newly married. At the very least, I say that I would like to be pregnant in some context by this time next year. I don’t care if I’m one day pregnant or six months pregnant, I’d just like to be pregnant.
It doesn’t help that FI’s brother and SIL just had a baby last month and I’ve been spending an insane amount of time with her. Even with the screaming and crying and poopy diapers, I really want a baby right now. Fiance and I have been talking about baby names all the time, discussing how many kids we want, the sex of the babies, etc. I’m thinking we might start trying around Christmas this year.

Oh SOOO bad!!! We have been together 6 years, I have a 11 (soon to be 12) year old son, and we are both in our 30s. We havent even set a final wedding date (still thinking about eloping!) but we are going to start TTC in the Fall of this year, with the hopes of a summer 16′ baby. He reminds me all the time that “his clock is ticking” lol so fingers crossed it will be fast!

I have it in a MAJOR way!! We’ve only been married since October, and I’m currently on medication for the next year or so (which I’m not allowed to be pregnant while taking). I like the idea of being married for a while before we have kids, and it’ll give us a chance to get settled. Plus my hubby just started a new job so this will give him time to pay off his student loans over the next year and help us increase our savings cushion. Sooooooo circumstances are ‘forcing’ us to wait which is a good thing in my mind because holy baby fever! I’m turning 29 in a month so I’ll be around 30 ideally when we start TTC.

Yes, totally!! Being an auntie to 3 precious little ones I’m so excited! Aand 2 of my friends are TTC. We just got married last weekend LOL….not ready to start just yet. But I’m very much in that head space! We move into our new home in September and am just looking forward to settling into that first. Although I totally have the nursery picked out based on our floor plan…and I may or may not have secret Pinterest boards for boy & girl nurserys! hahah. Congrats to all those expecting 🙂

Just started a pill pack yesterday, five months til the wedding and I turned to Fiance and said, ‘Oh! I only need to refill this twice more and then I am done with birth control!” sooo…what does that tell ya? haha I am SOOO ready. This year has been really hard actually because we have many close friends expecting and I do feel jealous actually. I know that my time will come, and relatively soon (God willing), but it is so hard to wait! As of right now, the plan is to finish pill pack in October after the wedding and NTNP from then until January when we will really start trying. I will be 30 and he will be 32 and we’d like two kids and done by 35/37.

Kind of! I’m 27 (will be 28 in the fall) and my husband and I both have baby fever since our wedding (and perhaps a bit before), however when we get really serious about it I just freak out! We were going to start TTC this summer, but I pushed it back until the fall (we have too much going on right now). I think I am ready for a baby, it is just such a big step. I think no matter how long I waited I would always freak out (at least my husband is super confident and calming about it!)

I go back and forth. Some weeks, I think about how nice it is to have the freedom to do whatever we want, and I like having time to focus on being a good wife, spoiling the dog, fixing up our house, and spending time on my own interests. I know that will all drastically change with a baby. But here lately, I have been thinking about it a lot more. The desire to be a mom and grow our family has definitely been on my mind a lot more recently.
We want to go into parenthood debt-free so that I can stay home, and unfortunately, we still have a couple more years to go on student loans. So it’ll be awhile. I need to keep myself distracted until then.

Yes, after ten years together we are TTC. There is pregnant women everywhere. My best friend is with her third one, two women at work are pregnant.
We will get there.
