  • Wedding: June 2013

We got married in June. I got off the pill at the begining of December. My cycle was weird the first month off birth control and I didn’t ovulate. I got pregnant the next cycle and just found out! So it took us 2 cycles, but only 1 time that I did actually ovulate!

@foreverlovex:  Did your friend and her husband move in together after the wedding? If so, I can understand that maybe it was too soon if they were just adjusting to living together/being married/etc. That can be a lot going on at one time.

 

My SO and I are not married and are having our first in June. We were already living together and are both very excited. That being said we are also in our 30s and both wanted to be parents much sooner..I don’t think you are ever totally ready financially unless you are a millionare. We are fortunate enough to have an amazing support system and though we aren’t rolling in dough it shouldn’t be a huge issue.

We waited a year and got pregnant within a month of trying.

@foreverlovex:  We started trying right after the wedding. I went off BCP immediately following and then it took us about 5 months to conceive, although we weren’t trying very hard the first month. We are both older (30/31) and have been together over 5 years, lived together for about 4 years so we were both ready. Darling Husband would have loved to have a baby before the wedding but I didn’t want to chance being pregnant during or too close to the wedding. I am also glad I waited to go off BCP until after because it caused me to break out with terrible acne all over my back and chin, which i had never even had when I was a teenager. I can’t imagine having been all spotty at my wedding.

We started NTNP the month before the wedding and got pregnant the next cycle, on our honyemoon. BUT we are 33 and 32, had been together for four years, and living together for two. Had we been younger or had not lived together yet, I definitely would have waited and given us time to enjoy being newleyweds first.

  • Wedding: April 2014

We started trying in Septmber, and don’t get married until April. I’m glad we did, it’s been 6 months and still no luck! We have been together nearly 5 years and lived together for 3, so i feel like we’ve already had enough time on our own…life won’t change much after we get married….so I don’t think we need that “married time”. But that is just us, and every relationship is different. We have learnt A LOT about communication over the last 5 years and now we’re pretty good at it! I’ve also had baby fever for upwards of 2 years and I simply couldn’t wait any longer! 

Like I said, every relationship is different, so only you and your Fiance really know what the best move is. Just remember, the best move is what feels right to you guys, not what is “right” to your families/friends/society…that’s probably the biggest thing I’ve learnt for my own personal growth over the last 2 years. 🙂 Good luck with whatever decision you make!

I’m also very young (22) and so taking 6 months to conceive was not really something we had considered, we actually were expecting to have to buy a new wedding dress to accommodate a belly! hehe.

We were married about 5 months when we started trying and I got pregnant on our fourth cycle. I originally wanted to be married for one year first, but we moved in together a few months before the wedding and by the time I got pregnant it had been a year of living together so that worked out well

We started trying almost two years after we got married and it took us 6 months and 1 round of clomid to get pregnant.
