    As soon as we’re married! If not shortly before! So I’ll be 22, and he will be 24!!! 😀

    My fiance and I will both be 21 when we get married next year. We will still have to finish school (grad school for me, finishing his Bachelors for him) and we want to travel so we plan on waiting a while. We hope to have our first around age 26.

    We were married at 22 and our baby is due when we’re 24, right around our 2nd anniversary. <3

    We decided on some time after we’re married (we’ll be 26 then) and some time before we’re 30, so not too long from now!

    We’re getting married a few months after my 25th birthday. We’re not taking a trip for our honeymoon until 8 months after the wedding (because we have an oppurtunity to go to Europe!) and I definitely don’t want to be 8 months pregnant and hiking around Europe!! So we’re going to wait until 5 months prior to the trip to TTC. I have some health problems so we probably won’t get pregnant immediately anyway, but I want to make sure I wouldn’t be in my third trimester.

    I’m 19, he just turned 21. We’re getting married in two years, so I’d probably want to be around 25 when I want to have kids, maybe 24 if I have a great career and can financially afford it.

    I chose the 24-26 range. When we marry, I’ll be 22 and FH will be 27. We both know we want kids (desperately), we don’t have any debt, we have a house and live comfortably. BUT, we really want to move out of Maryland and buy a new house in PA. I want to be able to move and work on remodeling the new house without having to worry about a baby. Also, we would still like to be a little more financially “secure” to feel a little more comfortable as I only work part-time (trying to finish my CADD degree) and he, while making a decent amount now, would be slightly stressed having to support a family with no help from me as I would be a Stay-At-Home Mom for awhile. I can’t wait to start having kids! But I also know we need to be responsible plus have a little “us” time first too 🙂

    Medically, and personally, my peak would be at age 25. I DO NOT want to be in retirement age raising teenagers or preteens. Hellz no. I want to be young enough where  I’m not worrying about a biological clock (further stressing sex), I can be nimble still enough to keep up with a toddler, and be just far enough of an age gap that I’m not COMPLETELY out of the loop. Plus It gives me an opportunity to start on a large family if I wished so, and space out the years evenly between them. Large family being a max of 6 children, 2 children each portion of years with minumum of 2-4 years between them. Yeaaaa…and my hubby want like..3…haha. But we BOTH agree we would LOVE to have twins!! <3
