    @NYCkindaBee:  Aww thank you! I asked him why? He said he has a paternal instinct. He’s felt that for a cpl years. I didn’t even know there was a paternal instinct up until this point. I thought there was only maternal instinct which makes women want to have babies. Didn’t know there was a male equivalent of that. Ever heard of it!?

    I voted Yes, Kindof, and We found ourselves ready before our actual plan to start a family. When we got married and people started asking us when we were going to start having babies, my husband and I would brush off the question and tell them not to expect kids any time soon. However, we never really talked seriously about a timeline of WHEN we actually would start ttc, but we always knew it would be “before 30” which gave us plenty of time since we married at 22. In my mind, I always figured it would be around age 26 when we’d have our first, but I started really wanting to try earlier but just kept those feelings to myself and was just enjoying married life.

    When we were first married, he was still finishing his degree, so getting out of the college town we were in and him getting a job was our main focus. Once he got that job and we settled in to our new location, the topic came up and we both realised that we wanted to start trying.. lo and behold we ended up pregnant the first cycle trying! XD So now the baby is due around the time of our 2nd wedding anniversary at 24yrs old. 🙂 Everyone we told was surprised since we had NEVER talked about ttc before other than “not for a while”. 😛 It just felt right!

    We really, really wanted a child, but it happened quicker than I expected…day before I got my BFP, I was on here moaning about how it would never happen LOL….I had convinced myself that something was wrong!
