I’m 21 now and DH is 24. We would like to start trying around our 1 year mark of being married. So hopefully we will have one when I am 22 and he is 26! (His birthday comes before mine, if it took us awhile, I would be 23) Good luck to everyone!

  • Wedding: November 2010

We’re going to start TTC when I’m 28-29.  I’m currently 24 (turning 25 in August) and we’ve been married since November, 2010.  DH will be 30-31 when we start TTC.  It’s funny because prior to the wedding I was so not interested in kids, but after we got married I started thinking about getting pregnant and starting a family!  I’m so excited to do it and I find myself thinking about it so often!  

 We’re waiting a couple years mostly because I really need to get through graduate school and work a big girl job for a little while after I’m done.  I’m starting my Master’s in August and will be done in May 2013.  We also both want a few more years of “us time” (or p.k. [pre-kid] years, as DH calls them).  I hope everything works out smoothly, because I really want to start before I hit 30!

I will be 24, nearly 25 and he will be 28 when we get married. I want to pay off some debt and go on another trip to Europe before we TTC so I think I will be 27/28 and he will be 30/31 when we start trying for a family.

He is very clucky, he wants to start on our wedding night! I basically said to him that as soon as our personal debt is gone (3 years max) we can start trying. If we knuckle down and pay it off sooner, we can start trying sooner!

I always used to say ‘I’ll think about it when I’m 30!’

How I’ve changed my mind! I’ll be 25 when we marry and will hopefully be pregnant at 26 (I turn 26 3 months after the wedding).

Have baby fever, and it’s come out of no where! Just praying we don’t have any trouble conceiving, fingers crossed!

With Fiance being 30 when we marry, I think that has played a part in our choice to go for it straight away, if we were both 25 at marriage it may have been different.

We are planning on starting the TTC process this fall (October).  Just got married in May, however I’ll be 29 in November.  I had come to the conclusion that I was okay with not becoming a mom until I was 30 or older (DH is 27 at the moment…1.5 years younger than me).  He brought up the idea of starting a family with me a few weeks ago so now I am having my “pre-conception” appointment with my ob/gyn this Thursday!  I’m very excited as I feel I’ve been ready to be a mom for the past few years (rarely drink anymore, saturdays are spent cleaning, lol).  I always felt we needed to be “financially ready”.  Though every older, wiser person I’ve asked stated if we waited until that time, we never have kids, lol.  Come to realize that is very true!

Seems fast but it goes along with the rest of our relationship.  Met online, engaged after 5 months, started building a house 2 months after engagement and moved in 5 months after that.

We started when I was 28 and him 32 and I am now 29.

I have always always wanted to be a mother before I turned 30. Unless I get pregnant within the next 2 months that’s not going to happen and it’s making me really bummed lately. ๐Ÿ™

We got married 7/17/10 so we have almost been married a year now. I used to think that I wanted to get pregnant after being married a year – but now it seems that has been pushed off farther. I used to think I was “ready”, but then hubby and I decided we still want to wait a bit. We just bought a Harley and are having fun riding and picking up one day and just saying “What the heck! Let’s go riding and decide where we end up!” Can’t do that with kiddos – so we are being selfish for the time being ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL

We plan on waiting until we both finish with grad school, so about 3 or 4 years from now.  I’ll be 29-30 and he’ll be 31-32.  I just can’t imagine doing school, work, and having a child all at once.  Working and going to school is hard enough.  I’m glad to see others that aren’t planning on TTC until their early 30’s.  I feel such a huge push to start having kids while we’re in our 20’s.  It’s nice to see others with similar game plans ๐Ÿ™‚

We started TTC when I was 30 and DH was 29.  I’ll be 31 next month and DH is now 30.  We got pregnant a few months ago but I miscarried.  Hoping to get pregnant again soon!

I am just a over 1 month from turning 28. Our 1 year anniv is in Sept, and we recently decided that we will “TTC” after our 2 year. So I will be 29.

Originally we planned to wait a couple of years until I was 29 (I’m 26 now). It’s crazy how baby crazy I went almost immediately after getting married. It’s something I never expected from myself. My hubby isn’t quite there yet, financially. He wants to pay off a small line of credit first. That means we could start trying early next year though, 2 years ahead of schedule ๐Ÿ™‚
