I’m 26 and Fiance is 28 – he is more ready for kids than I am, so we will be waiting a couple of years. Maybe 2 or 3. I’d like to enjoy my husband before I have to share him with anyone else 😉

I agree with you in the fact that it is SCARY but in a nervous type of way. We spent all this time making sure we didn’t get pregnant and now we are going to try? It seems like it is going aganist everything I have told myself for the past few years. We are getting married in April 2013 – a little over 6 months away from now. We have a friends wedding in July and I don’t want to be pregnant for that. I want to be able to enjoy her wedding. Not that I wouldn’t be able to enjoy it if I was pregnant but I am the first out of all my friends to get married so I would like to be able to have a few drinks as a guest at a wedding. We will probably try in August. I will probably go off the pill right after our friends wedding in July. I get horrible cramps which is the reason I went on the pill in the first place so I am scared!

Ooh, how exciting!  I’d love to start TTC immediately, but it’s not practical for us financially and career-wise.  It must be quite nerve-wracking.

I’m staying on the pill for at least a few years. we are going to pay off our student loans and want to buy a house before we have kids. I also want to just be married and enjoy that for a while. I hope to wait another 3 or 4 years for kids. But my husband is already ready for kids.

SO and I are still young (almost 26 and 24 respectively) so we plan to wait until he is done with graduate school (another 5 years from now, roughly 3 after the wedding) before reevaluating if we’re in a good financial place to have children.

We are waiting, but it’s only because we aren’t financially ready yet.  When we have kids, I am going to stop working– so we have a few more milestones left before we’re there… we are going to build a $10k emergency fund, pay off DH’s truck & our credit cards, and replace my car with a “mom-mobile” before I go off BC.  We are expecting this to take about 2 years from the wedding date, at which time I’ll be 25/26 and he’ll be 28/29, so we feel like that’s the right time to have kids for us.
