    We already had a baby when we were 18 and 19 so thats what i voted for. we will be getting married at 22 and 23 and probably have another one right away. I hate the idea of my daughter growing up so far in age from siblings (FI is a twin and I am 1 of 4 all within one year of eachother 🙂 but no way are we having another before the wedding!

    I want to start having kids when I’m about 25 and finish before I’m 30. I only want 2 and close in age, so it’s doable. Plus my family is crazy fertile!

    DH and I are both 24 and plan on having children (we want 2) when we are 27/28. DH is in grad school right now and we want to wait until he has a steady job and we have paid more on our student loans.

    I have baby fever right now though (I blame the bee) and I think I have been annoying DH a little. I know deep down we aren’t ready for a LO but I can’t help it!

    We’ll both be 25 when we get married and have decided to start TTC shortly after that. Since I’m on depo and don’t plan on stopping it until a few months before the wedding, realistically I’ll probably be 27 or 28 before a baby happens.

    I’m almost 23, he’s 26. Now we leave in 2 different countries, so it’s technically impossible at least for half a year before the wedding) Hope to have kids in 2 years, after the qualification exams for PhD, before writing the thesis. But we decided not to use anythingfrom the very beginning, so who knows))

    I’m 21, and I don’t want any kids until we are both financially stable and until I finish my degree; however, DH wants kids now since he just turned 30.

    One of the few childree by choice votes. No kids ever and we’re pumped about it! We’ve got plenty of sibs so maybe we’ll be cool aunt/uncle folk. Looking forward to travel and career. Maybe some puppies! …he shut down the teacup pig idea…:(

    I like kids but I like traveling more :O I bet I sound so selfish.

    I want to liiive! And be financially stable and ready to “settle down” when I have kids. Maybe 29 or 30. Maybe later. Maybe earlier. It’s hard to say because I don’t know when my mind will change. I just know that I’m not ready right now.

    When we get married, I’ll be 23 and he will have just turned 30. We’re planning on waiting until 2015 so I’ll be 25/26. It is KILLING me to wait though, I have the strongest urges for kids NOW that I swear my body clock is broken and thinks I’m way older.

    My fiance and I are both 22 now. By our wedding next year, we will be 23 and we plan on waiting probably 2-3 years before having a baby, so we would be 25-26. However, my fiance said he would be fine with having a baby even sooner! I was super surprised by this whenever he first told me about it a couple months ago, because before then, he made it seem like he didn’t want to start having kids until our late 20’s, like around 28-29. It’s exciting and as much as I would be willing to try having a baby during our first year of marriage, I think it’d be more reasonable to wait a couple years so we can have some time to ourselves! 😉

    Our plan is around a year after the wedding, so we’ll both be 24. Hopefully we’ll be in a house, hence the year wait, otherwise I would say immediately after! I can’t wait for a family.
