So, I’ve been feeling a bit off lately and my periods have been all wacky, so just to rule it out I took a test last night. I told Darling Husband and, to a bit of my surprise, he was excited and acting like the night he proposed to me (all giddy and talkative). Turned out to be negative and I think he was a little disappointed. He said, “I know we’re not ready, but will we ever be? This would have been one those times where we would just go with it!” Darling Husband is more of a “fly by the seat of my pants” kind of guy, so I don’t think he would mind an oopsie… But, we did both agree that 2 years from now would be ideal. Give us some time to just be newlyweds, get our house at least mostly renovated and still have “just us” time.
So what about you, bees? When did you and hubs decide to TTC? Or did an “oopsie” occur?

Not married yet, but for us…NEVER, we are not in the market for children.

Fiance says he hears my biological clock ticking and would love to start TTC tonight but I have wrangled an agreement out of him to wait til after our big “wedding” in August.

Fiance (along with our families) would like us to start trying right away (like on the honeymoon), but I’d like to wait a few months to get things in order so I’m thinking within the first year – but we’ll have to see how life goes. We’ve been together for a long time and will be living together for close to 3 years when we get married, so we don’t feel the need to wait longer than a year.

We’ve had a scare before and Fiance reacted the same way. He was super excited for me to take the test and then disappointed when it was a BFN.
We’re both ready now but our finances and our home is not. I am sure we could manage but I would prefer to be more comfortable. Hopefully this time next year!

Due to fertility issues (mine) and the fact that we’re very established already we started trying right away!

I had a planned surgery so I couldn’t on our honeymoon.

Pretty much as long as I am not showing at the wedding, anytime according to Fiance. I however, want to drink, enjoy soft cheese if I wish etc… at our wedding so we haven’t stopped BCP yet. I plan on stopping a little bit before the wedding and starting prenatals, whatever happens from the time of our honeymoon onwards is up to the big guy upstairs. We’ve lived together and done “just us” things for a while, and I’ve always wanted kids young (actually, I thought I’d have them by now) so we’re just waiting for the wedding.

I’m a young bride and still in grad school, so Darling Husband and I are waiting until we get well-established in our careers. We will probably start trying 5-7 years from now.

I’ll be finishing up my last pill pack in the same month as our wedding, and then it’s a free for all! Haha, we’ll probably just NTNT and if it doesn’t happen by this time next year, we’ll get more serious about “trying”.

I think we’ll wait a year or two. We don’t want to wait too much longer than that since I will be 31 when we get married and we want to have 2. I think we’re both anxious to get going, but we need to enjoy being married a bit and get ourselves established.

You should add a “never” option for bees who don’t plan on having children.

We’re going to try 6 mos after our wedding, giving us at least a full year without children if we get pregnant right away (even if half of it is preggo), we’re a bit older, I’ll be 32 when we get married, so I’d like to have our first before I’m 35, I know that’s a lot of time, but if we do have trouble TTC, then I’d like to know before it’s too late.

@thehoneybear: I figure bee’s that aren’t having kids won’t be lurking on the babies/ttc/pregnancy boards…

We got married in June and we’ll be starting to TTC in April, so a little less than a year!
