    Darling Husband wants to wait until we’ve reached our 1 year mark!  I am ready now… ;o)

    We started casually trying (no form of protection) pretty much right after our wedding last October. We started actively trying (OPKs and charting) right after Christmas.

    I picked 1 – 2 years, but I’ll be quite happy if it happens sooner than that. We just want a little time to ourselves and to plan and finance a baby! lol. But I have crazy baby fever all.the.time.

    SO wants to start ASAP but I want to wait at least 2 years. He’s having bad daddy attacks though.

    I picked 1-2 years, but we’ll probably stop using BC at about the 6 month mark. At about the year mark we’ll start actively trying.

    Right now, I think 5 years, or a bit longer.  5 years would make us both 32.  We’re not anywhere near ready now.

    We waited until the year after our wedding to TTC.

    We haven’t set an exact yearly timeline yet.  We think it would be best if he finished his masters before we start trying, but I’m really not sure how long after that we will wait.  I would love to start immediately after he graduates, but the way he’s been talking lately makes me think he’d like to wait about a year longer.  So 3-4 years sounds right 🙂

    We’re between times right now. We either want to start in june right after were married or possibly wait until fall. So about 0 to 3 months after were married. Either way we can’t wait to start TTC.

    @Mrs.LilyLunaLove: I selected starting right away. I will be getting off the pill this December and we will start TTC in July when we get married (or a month before (June))…

    Good luck ladies!

    I chose 3-4 years.  Fiance wants to wait 5 years.  But I have crazy baby fever now!

    We started TTC 10 months after the wedding.  In retrospect, I sometimes wish we had longer to just live together and be married, but we did feel a little pressured by age.  Don’t get me wrong, we were financially ready, etc., and I am so happy to have our son.  It’s just that if I could somehow have met Darling Husband sooner, I wish that could change…or maybe we should’ve lived together before we got engaged, but I guess I’m old fashioned like that.  Having a baby is a blessing, but it can be very stressful, too, especially if you have a hard pregnancy or birth.  We both have pretty stressful jobs, too, so I think we were just naive about the emotional aspects, even though we had the house ready, etc.
