    • Wedding: June 2009

    We’ve talked about starting to try pretty quickly following the wedding.  We want some time to ourselves to adjust to actually being married, but we both love kids and neither of us wants to be old parents.  We want to really be able to enjoy our kids and be active in their lives (especially while they are young).  We’re looking forward to starting our lives together, family additions included!

    My clock is ticking (I’ll be 31 in 9 days! eeps!) but we want to put away some more money to buy our own place first. Some days, I wish we could start straight away (usually after hanging with our adorable niece) but other days (like today, as I sit on the computer and drink wine all evening) I’m happy to wait a little bit longer.

    We’ll start trying at the 1 year mark; we’ll both be 28 if I do get knocked up according to plan 🙂  We’d get started now, but we are hoping to get more in a savings account.  The way the economy is going, I wouldn’t feel comfortable without at least 6 months of living expenses (plus anticipated day care costs) in savings. 

    I wish we got 10 months here in the states, Flamingo!  Lucky you!!

    I think it’s about probably about 3-5 years for us. I’d love to say 2 years, but we’d like to wait until Mr. T is finished with his actuary exams. That’d probably be in 3 or 4 years. 🙂

    We actually just has this conversation the other night. We are looking to start trying in about 2 years. I definitely want to have some sort of stability before we try. Currently we have talked about moving from our home town and Mr. Wubz finishing grad school!! I know 2 people who are pregnant now and one got married in July and one got married in September!

    Well we started as soon as we returned from the honeymoon.  We wanted to enjoy without worry about conception!  I am turning 30 in 2 months and the clock has a very loud ticking sound that just wont stop.  Plus at the wedding all of the toasts from family and parents included the line, "where are our grand kids" and "we arent getting any younger."  It was hysterical!! 

    Since my new hubby and I have been together for a decade (even though only married now for 3 months) we are finally ready to expand our family and welcome the new additions.  So now I am no longer a Knottie bride but a "bump" girl.  I recently found the sister site to the Knot.com called Bump.com.  Its very cool. 

    I thought planning my wedding made me impatient…well apparently having to wait 30 days between ovulation cycles maxes out my patience leve as well! 

    Good luck to all of those who are trying to conceive and good luck to all of those wanting to wait!

    We’ll be trying as soon as my bc cycle (3 months) is up after the wedding in Oct.  We’ll be moving in with the Future In-Laws in 2 months and Fiance starts college in the fall (pre-med) so waiting until we are "stable" doesn’t seem logical because that could be a decade or more from now and we definitely don’t want to wait until we are 40 (I’m 25 and he’s 27 now) to start trying. This year will certainly be an adventure.
