  • Wedding: December 2013

Started trying 13 months after our wedding. Conceived our second month, but sadly lost that baby early. We’re lucky enough to conceive the next ccycle (April) and our son is due December 29, two days before our 2nd anniversary!

We are not TTCing at the moment. We got married about 2 years ago and will likely wait another 1 to 1 1/2 years. Our decision largely hinges on financial and career reasons. We could afford to have a child now and figure it out, but if we wait another year or so, we will be debt free (except our mortgage) and we would be in a better place from a career and financial standpoint. Some days I want to hurry it up, but I am fine with waiting a little while longer.

We started trying after the honeymoon. 2 months after the wedding I got pregnant. Currently 6 weeks πŸ™‚ We’ve been together for 10 years so that explains why we didnt wait.

  • Wedding: June 2014

We got married June 14 2014 and started TTC at the end of June this year so we waited until we were married a year πŸ™‚ We had planned on waiting a bit longer, but it seemed like the right time and all of a sudden we were both completely ready to start trying. We found out we were pregnant at the beginning of August – our baby is due April 16 2016 πŸ’•

We aren’t TTC yet, but having fun “practicing” right now! Lol We just got married about a month ago and want to wait at least a year before TTC. We want to pay off some of our debt and be in a better financial position. We also want to “time” it, if possible, so baby is born during the summer while Darling Husband is off (he’s a teacher). We shall see what happens though. If successful, that will be close to our 2 year wedding anniversary

halfling:  We’ve been together for six years and just married this summer – I know surprises could happen, but we don’t plan to TTC for at least 8 years.

halfling:  We waited 2.5 years after the wedding to start trying for baby #1. I got pregnant a little over a year after, and I am currently 22 weeks pregnant. We are going to be married a little over 4 years when baby comes in December. I think the time works for us and we got plenty of time to spend together alone. I say anything after 3 years of marriage was fine for me to have our first baby.

We started trying right away since I am 42 and Darling Husband is 41. We will see how quickly it happens but would be nice if it happens soon since we are of advnaced maternal and paternal ages.

Darling Husband and I got married on June 19th of this year and I am currently 6w4d pregnant so not very long! LOL

This was very much planned. He wanted to start a family before he turns thirty which is next February.

JEmery:  We just got married in May and I’m about 9 1/2 week along!

It would have been nice to have some time as just husband and wife, but we wanted to start right away because we’re in our 30s and we plan on having more than one child. I wanted to have our first before I turned 35 – I’ll be turning 34 in October.

Not married yet, until November of this year. We are going to start trying in September 2016. I’d LOVE to get on it sooner, but Fiance is wanting to wait. I have extreme baby fever though. He wanted to wait until our 1 year anniversary, but I’m hoping to have a summer baby. My mom (my best friend) has summers off and i’d love to have her around for an SOS.
