How long are you waiting to start trying to conceive? Me and the Darling Husband are waiting until September of next year, so we’ve got another year and a half before we can even think of starting to buy baby things and such. lol. So, mine is September ’11, when’s yours?

We’re going to wait at least two years, so I guess 2012-2013. We want to give ourselves plenty of time to really grow and strengthen our marriage before introducing kids in to the picture. Although, I can’t wait! There’s nothing that says I can’t start crocheting baby blankets now… 🙂

Lol. I totally agree. When we first got married a couple months ago, i just wanted to go ahead and start trying to have a baby, but I KNEW that we wouldnt be able to because of school. SO, we started talking about it and, like the wedding, we just planned a certain month and year we would start trying so that it would put me more at peace. lol. But for right now, I just want to chill and be happy being married and get used to this before moving onto the next step. However, like every person with the baby bug everytime me and the Darling Husband see a baby or child we both get doe-eyed and smile to each other. lol. BUT, planning a certain month and year makes the baby bug cease and desist a little. 😉

We are waiting 5 years because Fiance is entering a PhD program in July and we want him to be a part of the pregnancy/first year and not feel torn between the two.

For us, we didn’t wait very long after the wedding being we conceived two weeks after :). We do plan on waiting at least 6 months after the baby is born before starting to conceive the second baby – we’re going for 4. We actually talked about it this morning. I really want to shed the pounds I have gained with baby #1 before getting preggie again and my hubby came up with the idea that when I get to my goal weight we can start trying again. I actually like that.
Good luck ladies when you do start!

We’re waiting at least 4 years from now, so 3 from when we get married. We want to travel and do some fun couple-y stuff before bringing a child into the picture. Plus neither us feels ready right now! Hopefully we will in 4 years, but if not, I guess we’ll be waiting longer. We only want 2 kids but I would like to be done by 35.

We’ll get married when we’re both 26, and my ideal time-line would be to wait 3 years and get pregnant when I was 29 so I’d have my first when I was 30. I feel like that gives me plenty of time if I decided to have a 2nd or 3rd, but also gives me maximum time to just enjoy being child-less and do some traveling 🙂

We want to wait until he’s out of active duty (March of 2013) and has finished up his last classes towards a degree before we start, so we actually won’t be TTC until around 2015 haha.. Which sucks for me, because I’ve had the baby bug for like forever!! But I’m young, so I have plenty of time, and I’m glad that we’re waiting that long, because I don’t want to be raising kids alone while he’s deployed..

We got married in November. We aren’t trying, but we are not NOT trying either. We will see what happens in the next few months.

We’ll probably wait until about 2014, 2015, and I’d like to have all that we’ll have before 2022. That gives us plenty of time to have three or four. I don’t want to get pregnant past my mid-thirties.

Don’t know. We orginally thought six months since we’re in our mid-thirties, but I don’t know. I’m now thinking at least a year. I want a house so bad, before we have kids. I don’t want kids in a condo. I sold my condo for a profit but my husband is under water badly, he bought in 2005 at the height of the DC real estate market. So we are stuck and to make matters worse he owns it with his brother. My husband is ready whenever. My parents and his parents and many others say to trust in God and that you can’t plan everything, but that kills me as I am a planner. I would love to travel a bit but my husband’s vacation is screwed up and if we ever hope to buy funds will need to be tight to save.

Fiance & I talked about this a few weeks ago and I told him I want to try right away after the wedding. He said he didn’t want to right away but he didn’t want to not try? If that makes any sense at all, men I tell ya. I think he just wants it to happen naturally. He told me he wouldn’t mind if I went off bc after the wedding so I’ll probably do that and if we conceive then great but if not there isn’t any disappointment on either part.

We’ll probably get married before I start graduate school, so we’ll be waiting at least five years (for me to finish my PhD and find a job) if not longer so that I can get settled into that job.

We’re waiting up to two years after the wedding.
