    We are planning on starting to try in about 3 or 4 years.  We just want to be able to establish ourselves in our home and besides that, just enjoy each other’s company as husband and wife for a little while.  There is just less time for each other when you have kids, so we want to cherish the time we have and maybe get a little traveling in.  Plus, when we have kids the plan is for me to be a stay at home mom so we are just hoping to get a few ducks in a row before that happens.

    We’re thinking we’ll start trying when I’m 30 (2 more years).  We don’t want to be old parents and because my mom had some fertility issues, we don’t want to wait too long and then have problems getting pregnant.  Of course, we also want to enjoy some time as just us first.

    I think for us we might think about having kids after I turn 30, which is in 5 more years. There’s just so much we want to achieve before then (ie get our careers on track, travel, buy a home).

     Some of our friends have started having children (they are early 30s) so it’s a lot of fun to play with their kids meanwhile!

    We definitely want to wait, alhough right now aren’t on the exact same page about how long.  We’re going to have a long-distance marriage for 2-3 years starting in June, and once I am able to move to live with him, I’ll be 28 or 29.  My husband would like to start trying once I can move in together… but I’d like to wait another year or two, since I honestly think it will be a BIG adjustment going from living on my own and seeing him two weekends a month, to living with him again and seeing him ALL the time, in a city that is brand new to me with no friends.  My guess is that once we move in together, my husband will realize it’s a big change too, and hold off for another year or so.  I always said I didn’t want children before 30, and with the timing, it looks like it would work out just that way.

    If we were getting married any sooner we would wait, but we won’t be getting married for another year and a half. By then I will be nearly 30 and definitely wanting kids already. So I am sure we’ll start trying already on the honeymoon!

    We both want a family but decided we wanted to have a little more savings, a house, and be a little more established before we start trying. We figured 3 years after the wedding would be perfect! Except… now every time I see a baby I want to snatch it and give it kisses and my soon to be husband keeps talking about "his son" and all the things he can’t wait to do with him. Somehow I think we’ll end up starting a family much sooner than we expected or planned for! 🙂

    We are both 30, already established in our careers, own our home (in a family-friendly neighborhood), and he is quite focused on savings. So… there’s really no reason to wait! Buh bye BC, hello babies!

    We gonna start … yup … now.
    Ive been ready for a really long time (even though Im only 25) but we wanted to wait until Mr.F was done school.

    Im really into my job, but I am lucky because I can do graphic design from home. I do want to keep working while on my maternity leave (which is 10 months here in Canada)

    Basically everything will happen once his schools done. Babies, house all of that grown up stuff

    We would start right away but I need to finish school first! I’ll be 29 when I graduate, so we’ll start trying either toward the end of school or right after I graduate. So probably 2-3 years after we tie the knot!

    I’m not certain this is something you can truly plan…but we are shooting for next year! I can’t wait!! I feel like I am surrounded by babies with all my friend’s and family’s kids everywhere.

    Many of my friends started trying before the wedding… I think this is a factor of us being in our mid-30’s.

    • Wedding: June 2019 - Holy Family Catholic Church, reception: National Infantry Museum

    I was completely not ready for children when Mini was born.  I was 20 and still a kid myself.  I had to grow up fast.  Now that she’s working on 5, I’m starting to want another.  I don’t want my kids so far apart that they barely know each other.  Mr. CC would like to wait 5 years, but that’s just too long for me.  We compromised and decided that about 2 years would be ok, and we really really need a bigger house first!

    I’ll be 32 at the time of our wedding and have been on birth control for a decade.  We’ll be taking the "que sera sera" approach.  Mr. teamzeewagen will be excited- we’re abstaining for 30 days before the wedding!
