    We had lived together before getting married, and we’re getting up there in age so we wanted to try right away. We just had to wait a few months because 1) I didn’t want to get off birth control until after the honeymoon so I could control my period for the wedding and honeymoon and 2) I had to ween off of other meds that I take for migraines.

    we’ve been married (almost) a year, but we’re waiting a couple of more years.  we’re both pretty young, so we don’t see a problem in waiting.  if i were ten years older though, i’d want to start trying right away after the wedding!

    i have baby fever sometimes too, but then i realize that we have so many trips and celebrations coming up this year that being pregnant/having a little one would really put a cramp in our plans! i also want to enjoy more time with just the two of us before we start building on our family!

    I get baby fever sometimes.  But I definitely want to wait until I am farther in my career and so is he.  I plan to wait until I am 30.  I always wanted to.  Plus, we would be equally happy adopting (we would actually prefer that if we can afford it).

    My Fiance thinks he’s getting too “old” and is ready to start trying as soon as we get married.

    He’ll be 25 at the wedding. Since when is that old?! I’ll have just turned 24.

    I am feeling the baby fever a bit as well. But my Fiance is actually older (he’s 13 years older than I am and I’m 28) so I think he is feeling intense pressure/desire to have kids like 6 years ago.

    As a result I think we’ll give it somewhere between 5-10 months of organizing our newly married lives but pretty much start as soon as we can.

    We’ve decided to wait a year after we are married to start TTC.  It gives us time to get into our married groove (though we already live together) and hopefully do some traveling.

    @R.Elliott: Wow my husband is 27 and he doesnt want to have kids for several years!

    We will probably start TTC once we have been married for 4 or 5 years

    I took BC on the honeymoon until I could be sure of no period (like day 4).  So right away!  But we are 30 and 41 and have been together over 4 years.

    We waited for 4 months to start trying… only because I wanted to change to a better insurance plan once married.  If it hadn’t been for that we would have been trying for a honeymoon baby or even sooner 🙂

    When we got married we said we wanted to wait 2 years before having kids.  We are currently on track.  We wil start TTC by the end of the summer.  That will be 1.5 years after we got married. Very excited.
