For those presently or formerly TTC: how did you and your SO decide you were both ready to start TTC? Was it associated with meeting a goal (save up X amount, buy a house, get promoted, etc.)? Was it associated with an age? Did you both just decide it was the right time?
Although we are not currently TTC, it isn’t too far off. I’m just curious how others came to the decision.

FH and I are both 24 and although I have always been pretty maternal fh has always been terrified at the thought of children. Ever since last september he started to get really excited about it and talking about when we have a baby this and when you are pregnant that and baby names etc, it was so cute 🙂 It just kind of came out the blue and we are now planning on ttc from next Febuary, we are waiting until then as we are moving house in about 4 months time and then getting married in June so even though I am dying of baby fever now the timing is just really not right.

Ours was age and getting married. I’m 38. Fiance is 37. We both knew we wanted kids and knew we’d need to get on that train asap. my birth control prescription ran out in April so we decided to just not renew it. We’re trying now and if we get lucky before the wedding, I won’t be far enough along to be showing

Ours started as “we’ve been married a year, lets just not prevent anything” but after that didn’t result in anything we realized how much we wanted to have a baby (me more than him, but he is really on board) so we decided to start actively trying. 🙂 It was just something that came up, but we had been talking about it since the begining and said we didn’t want to have a baby until we had been married a year… our anniversary was last month. 🙂

Before we got married we had decided we would wait for a year or so after we got married to have kids. I went to the doc for issues with my period and my doc stated that she thought I may have endometriosis and that if we wanted to have kids we should start trying because it could/would affect my fertility. Also she said one of the few things that would help my PMS symptoms would be an IUD because I’ve tried every single type of BCP out there. So we decided we would start trying after our wedding and after I finished my last cycle of BCP (I was on the 3 month pack of pills at a time). Finished my last pack of pills a month after we got married and ended up pregnant.
