Woo hoo! Last night, I (somewhat out of the blue) asked Fiance if we could start TTC around this time next year (which will be right around our 1 year anniversary), and he said he’d be open to that timeline!
This is huge news for us! It has taken us a loooong time to even decide for sure that we’d like to have a child. We’ve both been really hesitant to commit to that, because it’s such a major responsibility. We finally decided that yes, we’d like to have one. And now we have a timeline in mind of when we could start trying?!?!??? It’s surreal!
Of course, that’s still a ways away, and a lot can change between now and then. But it feels like a major thing just making that decision and putting that timeline in our minds, you know?
How did you and your SO/FI/DH decide when it would be the right time to start trying? Did you freak out just a little when you started trying/made the decision to start trying at a certain date? (Cause I am, a little, and that’s still over a year away!)

We set our tentative timeline for next August for a lot of reasons. One of the major ones is that we hope to be in a house by then. Plus, we’re aiming for a late spring or summer baby. I wouldn’t say that I freaked out, but I agree it’s definitely a surreal feeling when you finally decide on a timeline! We’re already discussing when I’ll go off of BC and start prenatals, and sometimes it doesn’t feel like I’m adult enough for all of this, even though we’re in our late twenties. 🙂

We still haven’t come to a decision, but prior to getting married we always thought we would want to wait about 4 years. Now that we’re married, we’re talking about it more and it doesn’t seem as though we’ll be waiting as long as we originally anticipated. That being said, I’m focused now on traveling, enjoying newlywed life, having fun with friends, fixing up our house and doing as much as we can before kids. I want to feel at least 90% ready, and I’m not at that point yet. It is exciting to think about though!

We’re also thinking around our 1 year anniversary, but who knows what could happen in the time between then and now. We’re keeping our options open.
