Originally we were going to wait 1-2 years, but I deicded to go off BCPs in January in hopes to help with weight loss. I ended up falling pregnant 8-9 months after the wedding.

We will be 26/27 when baby is born, both out of school and have good jobs, so we have no concerns. We were just waiting to feel more ‘ready’, but I think if it didn’t happen this way we would probably be waiting awhile. We’ve been together almost 7 years.

We waited 1 month ๐Ÿ™‚

We never really had a set date to start trying. I just knew i wanted a baby by 30. We were married in June and I turned 29 in July. So we agreed to start. Plus we were together 6 1/2 years before the wedding sober figured why not. We aren’t charting/temping yet. Just stoppe using protection and giving that a try for a few months.

Originally we talked about waiting 5 years. I changed my mind after a pregnancy scare early in our marriage. We started trying last month, 2 and 1/2 years into our marriage. I am 27, he is 29.

We married three weeks ago in July 2012, and we will start trying in May 2013.  We will have been married a little over a year, and we are both 28.  We would try now, but I want to lose a significant amount of weight first and would like to pay off our credit card debt before LO is born.

We started last month NTNTC.  I went to a pre-conception visit (I’ll be 41 in 3 weeks, have 1 child and history of mc).  We are actively TTC this month.  We’ll give that 3 months then, with our doctor, look at my charts and *activity* and determine what action needs to be taken.

Our ceremony is Dec 12 and we moved in together 3 months ago.

 

I would have NEVER done this strategy when I was young or for my 1st marriage.  But I’m older, know a bit more, have worked to make MUCH better decisions and we feel this is right for us.  The outcome won’t affect anything (ie – if I mc again, won’t affect our relationship)  but being that we want to have a baby, am old (hee hee) and assume we will have some challenges we felt it was best to get started right away.

Good luck with your journey ๐Ÿ™‚

I’m 34 and he’s 41 and neither of us have children yet, so we will start immediately.

Well, since I figured that we would have problems getting me pregnant due to medical history and age (we’re both 36), we started when we got engaged (we only had a 3 1/2 month engagement), so that after we got married the timing would be perfect to go see a reproductive endocrinologist.  I figured correctly,  we got to start seeing the RE a couple of months ago, and we’re still trying (married 5 months now).

We are planning to wait 2-3 years (we are 26/29). We’ve only been married about 3 months. I’m thinking in reality it will probably end up being 1-2 years. I just feel like, now that we’re married, things seem different somehow. Like we’re suddenly more ready if that makes any sense, lol. We’ll see how things play out, but I’m thinking the original plan will change.
