We tried right away and 2 months after we got married, we were pregnant! I’m 8 weeks exact today! 🙂

bibber:  just shy of 1 year. Probably would have waited another year if we were younger, but my 30th birthday was 2 weeks after our wedding.

Almost two years after we married. We wanted to spend some time married beforehand. We dated 5 years before we were engaged to finish school and become settled in our careers.

bibber:  1 month. He originally wanted to wait a year but came around to my timeline eventually. Not that it mattered…1.5 years later and still no pregnancy yet. Now that we’re in fertility treatment he’s glad we “started” right away!

We will start trying around our fifth anniversary, give a month or two.  I am extremely antsy, but it is for the best for us.  We have another 5 months before that anniversary.

9 months… I was 35 when we got married but we needed some time because DH was going through a rough time at work, emotionally and then financially. Just turned 36 and heading into our 5th month of ttc.

We plan on waiting 4 or 5 hours, until the reception is over…

We have not started TTC yet. However, we plan to start in January 2017, which will be 3.5 years after getting married.

My FH and I will be getting married at 24 and just out of graduate school. How long would you suggest we wait? I don’t want to wait too long because I’m nervous we might have trouble conceiving..

We’re getting married in May and plan to start trying around December.  We’re in our 30s.  If we were younger I’d wait 2 years, but we want to have multiple kids and I’m months away from that high risk age

sarabara560:  I would suggest waiting until you are emotionally and financially ready, and when you have a strong, supportive relationship. You are young and unless you have a known history of infertility or significant health problems, you shouldn’t operate from a place of fear to push you into starting sooner than you are ready for. 

Children are a lot of work and an 18+ year committment. While many will say there is never a perfect time, there are better times than others. It might be best to talk and decide what you want your life to be like when you have a child and then work toward those goals.

bibber:  we waited until just before our 1 year anniversary, although I went off BCP 2 months before that. 

i wanted to start 6 months after the wedding, major baby fever but I’m glad we waited!

We are starting now, 1 month after our wedding. We’ve been together 6 years and we have reached all the goals we wanted to before ttc, like buying a house, financial stability etc so it made sense to us to start right away!
