we go back and forth a little bit…between waiting a year and then to start trying, or to just go with the “whatever happens will happen” from the beginning…….we both have been ready for a baby i think for a while, but the only thing keeping us from wanting to wait would be to travel a little more and to do a few home renovations….but either way we will be happy with no matter what happens in the end πŸ™‚ & we do have our names picked out already for a boy or a girl!

Probably two years after we’re married. I have my girl name, even though I’m hoping for a boy haha! If it happens before then, we’ll be thrilled though.

Right now we’re at the stage where we’re not trying to get pregnant, but if, for some unknown weird medical kink neither one of us saw coming and all birth control options failed, we’d be OK – I hope. Financially, it would be a strain, but as far as being parents, I know we’d be as ready as anyone can really be for such a HUGE change. 

However, forgetting “accidents,” I think we’ll probably wait about a year or two. Maybe a year. Honestly, I just want to make sure we’re at a place financially that can accomodate the little bundle. 

As far as names, we totally have them picked out! The boy name would be named after our maternal grandfathers who both have the same first name (we’ll be using my grandfather’s full name). The first girl name I love is using his maternal grandmother’s first name as a middle name with a first name that goes really well with it, and then we just have a girl’s name that we really like that isn’t named after anyone.

We went back and forth on this issue until we were actually married. After the wedding we realized we just weren’t quite as ready as we had thought, and decided to wait until at least next year. If it happens on “accident” before then, we will be super happy and excited for that! But for now, we just want to work on saving up some more money, getting better jobs, for me to finish Grad School…and just to be married for a bit. πŸ™‚

Oh, and we have 2 boys names we love and I have a Top Ten of girls names…we don’t agree on all of them. Lol.

We don’t have a specific time set yet… General time is about 2 years after the wedding, we got married at 21 and 23… So we’ll be 23 and 25 (or 24 and 26 within a couple months after that)… 

Our main timeline is we want our debt paid off first.  We’ve paid off between $7k and $8k since we’ve gotten married (about 7 months)… But we’ve got one student loan at about $15k now and one at about $4k.  That’s all of our debt… So once that’s paid off or close to paid off, then we’ll seriously assess the situation and decide πŸ™‚

We definitely want kids… I want to have 2-3 kids by the time I’m 30… So starting at 24 definitely gives time for that to happen πŸ™‚

We started talking about baby names 5 or 6 months into marriage… and we definitely have a few girls names that we really like… We will use DH’s middle name as a middle name for a son… But we’ve gotta work on boy names some more πŸ™‚ Thankfully we have time!

ETA: If we have a happy accident, we will OF COURSE be thrilled! Seriously… But we are not planning on kids for a couple years πŸ™‚

we’d been talking about starting ttc this summer…until about 3 days ago, when I realized it would make a lot more sense in terms of where I am in my phd program to wait another year. I’m really  bummed out about it though–it’s so much more practical to wait another year, and it isn’t really that long in the scheme of things, but ughhhhhh, I can’t believe we were so close to starting only to come up with a whole new timeline πŸ™ but yeah–that means we’ll have been married about 3 years when we start trying. and yes–we have names picked out πŸ™‚

@CountryBride2013:  The one thing we DO agree on is middle names. πŸ™‚ We both have family middle names and want to give our children family middle names. So if we have a boy, it’ll be the same middle name as Darling Husband (FIL and GFIL also) and if we have a girl, it’ll be after my mom. If we end up with two of either gender we have backups! For boy 2 it’ll be after my Papa (and also one of my brothers’ MN) and if we have a second girl it’ll be my mn (which is also BOTH of my grandmother’s mn’s). Wow, I’m sure you REALLY wanted to know all that! haha. Apparently not having people around me is making me long-winded on the bee.

We are going to TTC by the end/beginning of the year.  I have already chosen a future daughter’s name.

I want kids! There’s the money thing, but I think more than anything else, I want to get in shape first. Enjoy my pre-baby body a bit more while it’s still my own. Everyone always tells you that you’ll never look or feel the same after. We have to talk a bit more first about when to start actively trying.

We have a boys and a girls name all picked out! After being together for 8 years, it would be pretty impressive IMO if we didn’t. I’m not 200% on the girl’s middle name, though.

Are we not sharing the names? Nobody else has? Our boys is Powers Ivan (DH’s middle name and all 3 of our surviving grandfather’s first name) and our girls is Eve. We were thinking Elle for the middle name, I think it’s super femme-y and cute yet professional and functional. The whole sounds like ‘evil’ aspect of it only makes it appeal to us more. We have a sense of humour, we’re not satanists or anything. Our last name sounds great with both.
