    We are stopping the BC two weeks before the wedding in hopes for a honeymoon baby ( it just happens to work out nicely, which I am taking as a hint)! I will be 29 and he will be 28. We are sooo excited to start TTC. We are both in stable jobs, and we bought our house two years ago. I just finished school last year, so there is no reson to wait. Really looking forward to seeing what happens!!!!

    1-2 years. I’m 25 and he’s 24. I wanted kids early (and at least one by 25) but we got married a month ago and I am just not ready to be a mom! I love kids and really want them in the future, but feel like I need time to spend with just me and my hubs first, especially since we never lived together before we got married. I want us to establish ourselves as a couple and make sure our careers are stable and save more money.

    We are going to try within the first year. As soon as Fiance has a steady job.

    Originally we were going to wait a year. I am 27, he is 33. We own a house together and I finished school a long time ago. I’d like to be making more money and work closer to home (I have a long commute) but neither issue was a deal breaker. I was ready to go right away, he wanted to wait at least a year. Then, he did the math and realized he was going to be well into his 50s raising kids if he didn’t get started soon. So, we decided to start trying about 4 weeks after the wedding (I mean, 4 weeks after the wedding we started trying, not that we arbitrarily decided to wait until 4 weeks after the wedding).

    we are going to TTC right after our 2nd year anniversary (end of 2012). Darling Husband will be 31, I will be 29, we’ll have been together for 7 years, 3 living together, 2 married and both of us will be done with our grad degrees…

    We’re going to wait for at least another 8 years, ideally. Both of us will have just finished our undergraduate when we marry. I’ll be in the AF so we’ll be moving every 8-12 months the first few years. Then after that it will be off to grad school for both of us. Once that is done and we are settled a bit more I can think about growing a baby! So around 30 yo. (I’m 22, fiance is 21)

    Darling Husband and I are just seeing how things go. We would like to be with child by our first wedding anni. Seems fast I realize, but we have already been together 6 years.
