    The title is a little confusing as “waiting” typically refers to Bees who aren’t engaged yet, but I hope you get answers from some married ladies!

    We’ve been married around 3 months. We had been planning to wait 2-3 years before trying, but I had crazy baby fever post wedding. Talked last month and Darling Husband said maybe we could start thinking about it in 6months. However, our work situation has become a lot more unstable since then, and we’re thinking of both quitting and working overseas, so maybe I’ll be ‘waiting’ for another year or so.


    Trying to keep occupied with new hobbies in the mean time, and trying to figure out what I want to do with the rest of my life career wise. Have some difficult decisions to make in the next 2 months.


    To put it bluntly, if money were no object, and we could travel with kids + nannies etc, we’d be trying right away. But realistically, I know Darling Husband wants to see more of the world (which is difficult wiht kids), and we’d like to be a little more financially secure.

    I voted 10 only because 1000 wasn’t an option! He’s dying to be a dad. I am a 3 aiming to work my way up to at least a 5 in the new year!

    when i asked him, he said he’s ok with it if i ended up pregnant right now but, technically, he doesn’t feel “ready”… but he also told me he probably won’t feel “ready” until all the kids are over 30, so… =P

    We’re getting married in just under three months, but…

    I’m only 21, he’ll only be 22, and there are zero plans to start TTC anytime soon.

    I kinda wanna start trying when I’m 24 and he’s 25, but I don’t think he wants to start trying until he’s at least 26 or 27.

    We’ve been married for 9 months. Darling Husband is at an 8. Ready, but we are getting our finances built a bit up before trying. We plan to start trying at the end of next summer. He’s excited!
