We were for a while. Due to a medical condition, my OB/GYN told me if we wanted kids it was now or never. So, we tried for about 6 months with no luck and no we’re taking a break until the wedding. We’re going to start TTC again about a month or two before the wedding.

This may be dumb, but some questions get put here a lot when waiting is in the title, lol…do you mean, waiting for engagement and TTC at the same time?

If so, yeah. We’re not preventing and about to try later in the year. We had started, but I planned a cruise & you can’t cruise after 24 weeks.

Wow I’ve never really thought about it before, but I can honestly say I’ve never heard of anyone (that I know) actually trying for a baby before they were married. Certainly heard of some “oops” babies before the wedding, of course. May I ask (@pomeranian) if you have a specific reason like Mattel that makes choosing this option best for your situation?

I know plenty of people who have tried for kids (and had them) prior to getting married. My parents included (apparently i had a ball at the wedding!).

All of them have gone on to get married within a few years of the baby, but mostly because they were looking to become a family unit and have the same name, not for any religious etc reasons.

Best of luck for those trying! What a wonderful time!

My SO and I are planning to become engaged by the end of this year. As for the planning of little ones, I lean towards the (admittedly inconsistent) use of condoms, and the Billings ovulation method as our method of ‘birth control’ (I use this term loosely, because I’m aware it’s not entirely fool-proof). I have incredibly regular menstrual cycles (a period every 28-30 days, consistently), so this plan works pretty well for me.

We have talked extensively about the possibility of my becoming pregnant sooner rather than later, and while we would rather have a wedding pre-baby, we would be thrilled to start a family whenever the situation presented itself.

Good Luck and Happy Thoughts!

I’m so glad I saw this thread.  I’m a bit concerned about my potential ability to concieve.  I’ve never been THAT safe with any of my boyfriends (primarily used the rythm method) and am somewhat suprised I’ve never had so much of scare in 10 years.  My mother told me it took her 6 YEARS to conceive my older brother.  I’d like to bring up the idea of, while not actively trying, at least not actively PREVENTING, while we wait.  Although we’re not engaged yet, we’re planning on marrying next year this time and he’s actively saving for a ring.  We’d both like to have kids within a year of marrying if possible.

Not to thread hijack, but how did those who are not preventing while waiting broach the subject with their SOs?

lezlers- He brought it up wayyy before me. I was on BC for 10 years before I stopped just last October. He always joked about throwing them away. LOL He just asked me and we sat down and talked about it.

Bring up someone you know who is pregnant or TTC and just tell him about how you are worrying you won’t be able to conceive and see what he thinks about it.
