    Pretty well as planned. But it wasn’t a firm plan, more of a vague “I think just before I’m 30 would be good”, and that’s how we ended up doing it.

    We had an understanding that we’d TTC starting in October, but it kind of turned out more like NTNP. I’m not charting, and we’re just kind of going with the flow… I kind of like it this way (at least for a few months). We’ll see how long my biological clock will let it continue, though… our Dirty Delete is 8 already, and I don’t want to keep prolonging another prenancy.

    We started a few months earlier than planned, thinking it would take a long time to get pregnant. We were wrong!

    During our engagement I vividly remember telling people it would be about ten years before we TTC. Shortly after the wedding that timeline was cut in half, to about five years. A year and a half after our wedding, it has decreased again, and we are now ntnp, and will actively start trying on our second anniversary.

    It is so crazy how things have changed. We are incredibly blessed and happy in our marriage, and have so much love to give!

    Well originally we wanted to wait until the wedding, but then I wanted to regulate before the wedding so I got off bc in January 2012. Then we just kinda said screw it. Let’s try now. Ha. Here we are 11 months later….

    When we got together we originally said we’d TTC when I turned 30 (July this year) instead Darling Husband proposed to me and we planned our wedding for July. We were still aiming for now-ish but that has been put off because we decided to got to Europe and we don’t go until April next year… With my baby fever thou (DH isn’t much better) as soon as we do our Europe “babymoon” we are gonna TTC.

    We began TTC (not charting or anything) right after we were engaged, since we were/are financially prepared anyway. 8 months later and we’re still trying. We just had a MC so we are actually waiting until my body is completely healed before we begin trying again (don’t want to rush it this time)…so we’ll probably start again on our honeymoon. 😉

    #1 was totally unplanned so that doesn’t count. 🙂 We started right when we had planned for #2 but it’s admittedly taking longer than we expected so now I wish we would have stared sooner. :/

    We started to TTC exactly as planned, I stopped BC just before our 3 week vacation in Sept.  I know is hasnt been long, but I wish we’d started earlier just because I’m impatient and feel like I wasted the 3 months we could have tried.  (Earliest I would have considered going off BC was June since we had a 4 day hiking vacation in May and there was no way I was chancing AF showing up for that)

    We planned on TTC the day after our wedding night (wedding night we spent on a plane flight). And so we did. 🙂
