It was only about 6 months for us. Our timeline kind of collapsed after the wedding, and we are both so ready for kids, so we decided to try a lot earlier than we had talked about (we had discussed waiting 1-2 years). But we are expecting our baby boy in early December, and could not be more thrilled!

We were married at 29 last fall.  Initially DH was a 3 year timeline, I was a 2 year timeline.  Now it looks like we may start trying a couple months after our 1 year anniversary.

We pulled the goalie in January but avoided, began officially trying February 24, then got married on March 26. Hehe whoops =)

Edit: We are financially stable, own our home, have good permanent jobs with good insurance though I am young, he is older. I am 21 and he is 32.

Around 10 hours.  We decided that we would start trying straight away.  It took us 3 cycles to get lucky.

Originally I wanted to wait a year.  However, after my sister had problems getting pregnant I had concerns that we would too, so it made us jump the gun and start trying three months after our wedding.  This is our first month TTC.

We were planning on waiting until wle buy our first home and so on but we had to factor in that it was possible it would take a long while for me to get pregnant. We got married in November, stopped using any form of protection in I would say January and we are still trying.

We got married in May 2012 and plan on trying probably spring of next year. We have a 3 year old daughter now but don’t want such a huge age gap between the 2 kids. lol

We are fast approaching our 1 year anniversary (Aug 21, woo hoo!).  We want to wait several more years before TTC.  Next year I’m starting to take the CPA exam, so at the very minimum, we want to wait until late 2014 to start trying.  Studying for a major exam + baby = no-go for me, personally!!  Realistically, though, I’m thinking we’ll TTC in 2017.  Gah, so far away!! 

DH and I were 26/23 respectively when we got married.  I’d like to have my first (and potentially only…) around 30.  So, a good 7 years after marriage!!

We got married August 2011 and had orginally wanted to wait 2 years before we tried. We havent used protection at all since being married and managed to make it atleast a year! We are going to start TTC but only for a few months and then off a few months. Have to time it out so i can make it to my brothers wedding next fall.

We will probably wait a year or two after getting married. I’m young, 21 when we get married, and I helped raise my younger brothers and sister so I’m a little wary of having my own right away.

We got married July 2010 and started ttc August 2011.  We were 26 and 31 when we got married and were together 5 years and owned our own place and have stable jobs, so the timong felt Right.  So far no luck though.

I’m 26, DH is 31. I would like to start TTC in about two years but we’ll have to see where we are in our lives.

We just got married, I am 25 and DH is 26. We don’t plan on starting TTC for at least 3 or so more years (when I get out of grad school). I want to enjoy our “alone” time before bringing a baby into the mix, plus I currently work with hazardous chemicals in lab all the time, which I don’t want to be when I am preggers.

If not for grad school and work situation, we would probably try a teeny bit earlier, but I still have never wanted to start trying immediately after marriage.
