We’ll be 29 when we get married and are planning to wait 1.5-2 years before TTC. Fiance definitely needs time to adjust to turning 30, before we start serously planning babies, lol. I’m not in a rush either, there’s many places we want to travel to before kids. But I’m definitely aware of the years adding up and I want to be young enough to have the energy to run after the kids and be around long enough to see them get married.

Also, my mom and grandma started pushing for babies before we were engaged! I’m still telling them, yeah “we’re really not ready yet.” My 23 y/o cousin had a baby recently and while my grandma’s super excited, I was thinking “how are you going to support this chid when you don’t have a steady job?”

I’ll be 31 (turning 32) and he will be 36 when we get married. We do want kids but want one last bit of travel for at least 3 months and then I think we will both be ready to settle down and do it.

I brought this up casually the other night and didn’t really get a good response. Not that that’s a sign that he doesn’t want kids (he does, and is great with his 4 nephews)… I think he just wants to focus on one thing at a time. Right now, it’s the wedding. After that – we’ll see what is going on in our lives.

I do know that I’d like to move into a bigger house before having kids, or at least while we’re TTC. So, that will need to be discussed and see where we’re at money-wise and what we can afford. I am thinking that will happen within the next couple of years, so hopefully I will be pregnant by the time I’m 35 (I’m 33 now).
