Well I’m the youngest to post… Lol

Me and fiance will be 21 when married next may and since we alreasy have a child we will probably have a honeymoon baby. We want one now but i do NOT want to be pregnant at my wedding.

We’re going to start trying a month before our two anniversary. I’m so excited. We’ve been married for one year and three months ! Deciding when to start a family is  a personal decision between a couple , that no one else can decide for them, but people try to tell you when to start trying or how long to wait…

@Shinytoy: for me I plan for it to be after 5 yrs of marriage, because I want to go to law school and graduate before getting pregnant .. that’s the plan.. but i’ve been told when it comes to having kids it never goes as planned!! they either come earlier or later than expected!

@scecilia: I agree! I’m not even married yet & I already have people  telling me that they want me to have kids right away and I’m like umm are you babysitting for free??

or that I should wait until i’m 28.. i’m 21 almost 22..

i feel like it’s a personal choice as well!!! we’ll be the parents after all, right??

We got pregnant right away and I think it made us a lot closer. For us it was absolutely fine!

We aren’t planning on having kids, so I guess that would be waiting forever!

We’ll be waiting for about 4 or 5 years (even longer if the money isn’t there), but we’ll be 23 when we are married and still in debt from school 😐  We are going to wait until we are comfortable finacially and have our careers started but in a perfect world we’d both want to wait for a year or two at least… travel and have time being a married couple before expanding the family.

We agreed my IUD will be taken out the week after our wedding. So as soon as he shoots and scores! haha 🙂

 

(We’ve been together for almost 7 and a half years so we are ready for a lil brat!!)

When we got married, we said two years before kids. There were too many changes going on that adding a kid to the mix would have been crazy. We just celebrated our second anniversary and have been trying since September. We’re 31 (me) and 33.

We’re 29 & 28 and are figuring on waiting a year before TTC. Even though we’ve been together for 4.5 years and living together for over 2 we want to have some time to just enjoy being married.

We want to go on a real vacation this year and hopefully buy a house then we can try for a baby. But neither of us would be sad if we had a happy little accident.

We’re 23 and 24 so are planning on waiting 5-7 years. The plan is to have first child at age 28 and second at age 30, or first at age 30 and second at age 32. We’ll see how it all turns out 🙂

I’ll be 25 and FH will be 31 when we get married so we will wait 2-3 years after. We definitely want to do a lot more traveling as a married couple and both have stable careers before trying (I’m still in school). Financial security for little babes is important to us.

I’m only hoping 6 months since we are both in our 40s.  We would’ve tried during our mini-moon but my future surgery prevented that.  Once we get the go ahead, which I hope will be in Dec, its on and crackin.

DH and I would like to have children ASAP. However we have been together 6 years as of our wedding date. We both have been bitten by the baby bug. Hopefully it happens soon/

we are thinking next summer (fingers crossed) if not before so that would make us married for a little over a year. we are 25 and 26.
