We’re not married yet, but will be tying the knot in between undergrad and grad school. We plan to TTC in our late 20’s, depending how how our careers are going, how we feel, etc. So most likely we will wait about 6 years between being married and TTC. 🙂

I’ll be done with school when we get married, but he’ll have about a year left. We plan on waiting for 3 or 4 years after we get married!

I got married at 23 (which I guess is pretty young) and my husband was 27.. it’s been two years and we plan on waiting another 5-6 years. I went back to school for a second degree and my husband is a Naval Officer- it’s just not in our cards at the moment. So I guess it’ll be 7-8 years after our wedding when we have children- I’ll be in my late 20’s-early 30’s my husband will be in his mid-30’s.

I’m really really hoping we can start in about a year, which would make it two years after the wedding. I’d be 23, but 24 by the time the baby was born and Mr. Joe 26. Mr. Joe would still be in grad school for another year (if he’s accepted this year), but I would be just finishing up as we start TTC. It would be great timing, if everything works out as we’re hoping.

We will be 22 (me) and 24 (him) when we get married, so we don’t have plans to have children any time soon… we will probably wait at least 5 years, until we’re in our late 20s. I’m spending time with my Maid/Matron of Honor and her two little kids right now, and I know for sure that I am not ready to be a parent!

I’m 23 and my husband is 22. We’d like to wait about 4-5 years to have kids.

What does TTC stand for? I know it’s in reference to having kids, but what exactly does it mean? I can’t figure it out!!

TTC= trying to concieve?

when we get married i’ll be done school, and 21, Fiance will still have a year and a half left, and he’ll be 22.

after he’s done we plan on teaching abroad for a year, and then we’d like to come back, buy a house, and make sure all debts are paid off. also – i’d like to work for a year somewhere to make sure that i have benefits in place…

 so between marriage and ttc i’d say 5-7 years depending on how finances go?

My fiance and I have both agreed that we want to have our child before I’m 25. So, if we get married when I’m 22 (which is what I’ll probably be when we tie the knot, with our projected date), then we’ll have 2.5 years or so to conceive. We’ll probably start trying after about one to one-and-a-half years.

We are 20 and 21 and getting married this summer, as well as finishing college over the summer.  We want to have kids around 25.  I’d say 23, earliest.  So, 3-5 years?  But who really knows, anything could change by then.

We’re marrying shortly after we start grad school (so around age 23-24), in 2012.  We won’t be trying to conceive until we’re both out of grad school and have jobs, so around age 30.  Additionally, we won’t be able to legally marry until that age anyway, unless the health care laws are revised dramatically, since he needs to stay on his parents’ health insurance plan as long as he can (till age 30).

Since my Fiance is 7 years older, as soon as I graduate next year we will TTC.  We will be married for a year by then so we will probably have two years before children.

We’re both 26 and were married in May.  After the wedding, I gave up my (crappy) FT job to go to school for Massage Therapy.  I don’t really want to have to be at class at 8:30 in the morning while dealing with morning sickness, plus we just got new insurance which doesn’t cover maternity stuff for at least a year, so we will probably start TTC in about a year.

We are going to wait at least until his 4 years in the Air Force is up to see if he decides to stay in or not. We’re 22, so about 25 or so? Late 20s, but we want to be done by 30 and we only want 2 at most.

I was 23 when we got married (he was 26). We’re now 24 and 27. We want to have our first before he turns 30, so I’m looking at 2 years probably. We really don’t want any yet!
