Wondering how long you waited or plan to wait after getting married to start TTC? If you feel comfortable, can you also add your age and reasons for waiting?
Fiance wants to wait at least 2 years (!), and I don’t want to wait more than 6-8ish months. We’re both 28. He say’s he wants to ‘enjoy his social life’ and save $$ for a house, etc. and that everything will change once a baby comes. I kind of see his point, but we will have been together 5 years when we get married, and we’ve had a great social life for the past 5 years! I don’t want to wait forever….
Thx for sharing ladies 🙂

We’re going to wait at least 2 years. I just started a new job, which I need to stay at for at least 1 year, and I preferably want to stay there longer, since I love the organization. We currently live in a teeny tiny apartment, and can’t move until September. I refuse to be pregnant/raise kids in our current apartment. My husband wants to wait closer to 5 years, but I don’t think I can wait that long, since I already have major baby fever. So we agreed to wait at least 2 years, and we’ll revisit the issue then. 🙂

We already have a little girl and I want to get pregnant within the first year. He says we can start TTC when we get settled somewhere. we are pretty dang fertile so it shouldn’t be hard LOL I will be 18 when we get married and he will be 20.

at least 2 years, but hopefully not too much longer than that. fi will have about 2 years left of school, and we both need to be employed by the time we ttc!

Got pregnant on our wedding night/honeymoon.
Had 3 kids out of wedlock previous to our latest addition.
I’m 30 yo. We had our first at 19.

We’re going to start TTC after my 30th birthday, which will be 1 year and 2 months after our wedding. My bio clock is currently on silent, so I personally could wait for a couple more years, but my husband’s bio clock has the baby rabies! 😉

Probably a year from now. That would be about 1.5 years after we got married. I’d be 26, and he’d be 28. I’m currently in grad school, and I’d like to graduate before having a baby.

We want to wait about 6 years. We’re pretty young (I’ll be 23 when we get married and he will be 25) and about 75% of our student loans will be paid off by then. So it is mostly for financial reasons and because I personally do not feel ready to have a child anytime soon.

We got pregnant/started trying right after the wedding 🙂

We will not be waiting. We are going for it as soon as the wedding is over. I am 30 and he is 31, so why wait 🙂

We are planning on waiting about 3 years. We are only 24 and 25, and in no hurry at all.

I’d like to starting trying after our one year anniversary or spring 2012, IF I can wait that long (big if–major baby fever here!).

We planned on waiting a year… but changed our mind just before getting married. Decided to start TTC right away. Im 26 and Darling Husband is 32. We were extremly lucky and conceived on our honeymoon 🙂

We will be TTC in July 2012, the same month as the wedding. I will be 33 at the time of the wedding and Fiance will be 36 (going on 37). We are going to TTC at that time because we feel we are ready. We are moving into a house this summer (althought a house is not required to have a child); we both have degrees….so school was finished years ago. We are both stable in our careers. So the only reason why I do not have a child at this time is because I wanted to be married first. Once that happens, I am set for anytime, lol…. My goal years ago were to finish college, get established in my career, travel wherever I wanted to go, etc… Now that/that is out of the way, I am def looking forward to becoming a mother….After I become a wife and a mother, I will be able to honestly say that my life will finally be complete 😉
