DH is 25, he originally said he wanted to get me pregnant on the honeymoon (way too soon for me) but that was about 2/3 years ago. Now that we are actually married we agreed that we should try to wait 4/5 yrs. I’d ideally like kids late 20’s, early 30’s

When we first got engaged and then married, DH said when he turned 30 he wanted to try. He was 25 when we got married last year. Then this past summer he all the sudden is now ready and wants a baby. Says he’d done a lot of thinking etc. He has his Masters, and a great job, and I’ve graduated law school and been at my first job for 8 months, and we are saving for a house (to buy in DC will take a while regardless!) Me? I know he’s ready to try tonight if we could, but it will probably be next summer when we pull the trigger!

When his friends started to have kids! He is so good with babies, but hadn’t really been around them a lot. We’re now due in a few weeks and I can’t wait to see him with ours!!

DH has a big family. His youngest sister was born when he was 13, and he’s basically been ready to be a dad since then. He’s really awesome with kids and would have been excited at any point after we got married if I had gotten pregnant. 

We got married pretty young (22 & 24)…I was still in school, he had just graduated, so we had vague plans to wait about 5 years or so. We both have CRAZY baby fever now, and we’re planning to start trying by Christmas! I’ll be 26 and he’ll be 28. I think if circumstances had been different (I hadn’t been in school), he would have been ready to start trying a year or so ago (same for me).
