    We’re in a similar situation to you and your Darling Husband. We are 27, and logically we probably shouldn’t even think about having kids until we’ve bought a house and are more settled, but we had a “scare” this past month, and I realized that I totally wouldn’t mind if we got pregnant now. I’m still going to continue to protect myself until we’re 100% ready ready ready, but I can’t say the thought doesn’t cross my mind like all of the time!

    We strongly want to start a family, and we are not even married yet! I’ll be 27 when I get married.

    I got married at 29. Honestly, I just wasn’t ready until recently at 31-32.

    @MrsMcGyro: What’s funny was I had a scare where my BC period just decided not to arrive one month in our first year of marriage. I knew then that I wasn’t ready for it, just yet. Having two years to relax and enjoy our marriage has been nice. I’m ready for kids now.

    I’m 27 and he’s 34 and we’re assuming we’ll want them in a few years. No baby fever here.

    I think part of the problem is almost all his friends have babies and they fell off the face of the earth. His bf is pregnant now and I have a feeling that if they have a good experience my Darling Husband will develop baby fever.

    I was anti-children for my entire life. Darling Husband and I got married two weeks ago and my biological clock went off LOUD AND CLEAR. I feel that after we are more financially stable and move to a better place, we will start trying. It seems like a foreign language to me, but it is an overwhelming desire to start a family. Baby lust is a great way to put it.

    ETA: I am 24, Darling Husband is 26

    @MissShork: I love this thread:)  I am 27 and I is 28 and we’re planning on starting to TTC right after the wedding!  Hopefully we’ll see each other soon on the nesting boards!

    Ever since everything happened I am seriously having baby fever. Mr. Hedgie wants to wait a while before trying and I understand. I know we should but it is definately hard now.

    I’m not interested in having children at any point.

    I’m 24 and I definitely have the baby rabies.  Darling Husband and I don’t plan to TTC for another 3 years or so though because we want to be in a position where we can still live quite comfortably while I am able to be a Stay-At-Home Mom.

    i’m 27 and hubs is 29 and i think we’re going to start trying next summer…i can’t wait! especially because i just got back from a visit with my insanely adorable and precocious 2 1/2 year old niece, who makes me really want to get off the pill!

    I’m in the weird space between:

    Heck Yes! I want to be preggers now!

    I want kids. But I’m not in a hurry.

    Sometimes the lust is incredibly high, other times not so much. It waxes and wanes.

    I have always loved children and will be so happy when the day comes that we get to start our family, but for now we are definitely waiting. I am such a different person now than when I was 21, 22… I can’t even imagine what it would have been like if I’d been married and trying to have a baby. My fiance and I will be 26 and 27 when we’re married in April, and are going to try to stick to being baby-free for at least a year or two. I really do want to enjoy being a married couple and having the freedom to do as we please before starting our family. While we’re generally homebodies and a fun weekend to us is Netflix and a bottle of wine, we still like being able to drop everything and go to a bar or take a weekend trip somewhere, or blow a chunk of money on something for the house (or a trip) and not have to worry about it.

    Luckily we already bought our house and have completely renovated it so that’s a HUGE chunk of work and effort already out of the way, but it leaves us with the luxury of getting a lot of “us” time and I figure we ought to enjoy it while we can.

    @MissShork: I’m 20, 21 when we get married, and Fiance is 23. We definitely both want kids but we both know we have to wait a few years… we both agree that around 25 sounds good, assuming we’re financially set. I love everything baby though- the babies themselves, clothes, TTC talk, everything. So I am excited 🙂


    @RayRayFurious: Same here. I know logically we’re going to be waiting a few years but some days I just want to start now! lol. Then others I’m glad we have some time yet.
