@foreverlovex: we waited two years after the wedding, and we got pregnant on our fourth cycle trying. I’m at 6 weeks right now.
As far as what will really make you ready (regarding finances, where you are in life, etc) it’s honestly different for every couple. For us, we were actually not even ready at the same time; I wanted to start trying a year to six months before we did, but Darling Husband wasn’t quite ready. It’s so very hard to wait when you feel ready, but sometimes you have to.
And as far as how long it will take you, how I wish there was some way to know! Everyone is different, and there’s no way to predict it.

Darling Husband and I didn’t start trying until after our 3rd anniversary, but we had some extenuating circumstances causing us to wait. We’ve been really getting our finances in order over the last year or so as well to anticipate TTC. We are finishing up the fertile window of cycle 4 now.

We’re coming up on our 1st anniversary this month, haven’t started trying yet. I got major baby rabies last summer, but in hindsight its good we continued to wait. We moved, switched jobs, and are hoping to do both again this year. DH would like to wait at least until we’re moved & settled in a house we own, I’d like to start before our 2nd anniversary. But we’ll see what this year brings our way. For the record, we’re both 28.

SO and I will start trying less then a month after we get married. we will both be 24 but i work with kids and love kids so i can’t wait. we have lived together for over 2 years before getting married so we already feel settled in.
i agree that no middle class family is EVER ready financially for a baby but people seem to make it work.

Well, we weren’t in a hurry, per se, to have a baby, but it was getting to be time. We’ve been together for nearly 10 years and we already have a son together, he’s still a toddler, so we weren’t worried about communication issues, or living as a married couple before adding kids and all that. We were ready. We started TTC in August, 3 months before the wedding. We got pregnant on the first cycle after our wedding, but lost the pregnancy at 8 weeks. Now on our first post-m/c cycle we’re pregnant again. I’m 32, my husband will be 30 this summer.

We are NTNP, more so no preventing but the trying part, not really. We will try more strongly around our third year anniversary. We are working on some of Darling Husband issues, so who knows how much time we’ll need.
