    Personally, I’m on the fence on whether I really want kids or not. Somedays I kind of want ONE, and others, I get nervous thinking about them. That’s probably normal.

    I never really understood the innate need some people have to immediately get pregnant right after their weddings– I always envisioned myself spending the honeymoon phase enjoying my husband’s company. We didn’t live together before the wedding, so it’s been nice to just soak up time with him. I suppose it’s different for others who lived with their fiancees for years before marriage.  Our PLAN was to maybe consider a baby in about 3-5 years. We will evaluate then and decide if it’s sensible. Sometimes thiings don’t go according to plan though, so we’ll see. πŸ™‚

    @Mrs Sarah McK:  I’m going to thread jack for a minute– When did you find out you were pregnant, and how far along were you on your date of discovery? Just curious. πŸ™‚ Congrats on the little one.

    We’ve been TTC for a year now, and our two year wedding anniversary is in May. So it’ll be at least two years before we have a baby, though if we had gotten pregnant our first cycle, it would have been more like 1 year.

    @StuporDuck:  Thank you! I was just about 4 weeks along when I tested on December 1st, 2011.

    We don’t want to wait long, we will be married early 2013 and want our baby by early 2014. For us, our marriage is a way of saying “we want to be together forever, AND we want to create a family”.

    well we’ve been married 1 1/2 years so far, and I’m not pregnant, so it’ll be at least 2 years before a baby πŸ˜‰ more seriously, I’d like to start trying soon, and dh has floated the idea of starting this summer–I’m trying not to put too much weight on that since it was sort of an arbitrary idea of when he might be feeling ready, and thinking about an exact time makes me impatient and makes him feel pressured, so we’ve stopped thinking of that as a time line. but my guess is about 3 years in. by the end of this semester, I’ll be done with the taking-classes portion of my phd, and  by the summer I’ll be on to qualifying exams and dissertation grant-writing/prospectus writing. it’d be a little nuts to be pregnant then, and then have a baby while I’m doing dissertation research, but at least my schedule will be more flexible than if I were still taking classes or had a “real” job

    I have 2 things to pick….

    1. Less than 2 years (we were married 3mth when we started trying…. took 1st try)

    2. I came with a kiddo and wanted more

    Can you change the poll to accept multiple answers?

    ETA: Darling Husband and I are both on the younger side for TTC… I’m 26 with this as my 2nd and Darling Husband is 21. We just knew we were ready. =)
