We’re in our thirties and starting trying on our honeymoon.  Our baby is due in March, about a month before our one year anniversary.

 

There’s no right or wrong time, just what works for you.

I know this is an old thread, but we plan to start trying around our 2nd wedding anniversary. We would’ve started sooner, but we wanted to have a house first, and I went back to grad school right before the wedding. We’ll both be 29 when we have our first (if all goes as planned).

We were together for five years before getting engaged.  We were engaged for seven months and we started trying the month after we got married and we got pregnant 10 months later.  Our daughter is now three months old.

We were married 7 months when we got pregnant – but I was 31, and we knew we wanted kids. I would have waited longer if I were younger – my only regret is not travelng more before kids.

I will be 28 and he will be 32 when we get married. He told me he would be okay with me just going off of birth control once we get married and we will just let it happen when it happens. But I might actively stay on birth control for the first year, I just want some time to enjoy being together and married before we start having kids and time to save money for a down payment on a house. Also, I am working on my PhD so I want to wait til my last year of that before I have a kid.

 negative 1.4 years 😋

I have a baby boy and will be getting married in june. 

Honestly I think it would have been nixed to be married for 6 months to a year before getting pregnant, but either way you have each other and a beautiful baby:)

We will be married for 2 years in May. We plan on “lettng” it happen after that point. We decdied to take the NTNP approach after our 2 year anniversary since we’re read for kids. but don’t want to stress if it doesn’t happen mmeditately. We are 27/28, been together 10 years and married 2.

We aren’t getting married until next year, but as of now we plan on waiting 2-5 months after getting married to TTC. And by TTC, I mean “let it happen” because we don’t want to be taking ovulation tests, temp, etc. for the first few months.

A lot of people say to enjoy having it be just the two of you for a few years, but by the time we have a baby, we will have been together for 5 years (which we think is plenty of “just us” time). We are young too (in our early twenties) but we have a lot of life changes ahead of us that make trying shortly after we get married the most ideal time. There is never a perfect time to have a baby! We still have about a year and half to go before TTC and it’s driving me crazy too! We are just so excited to become a family of three. 🙂
