DH and I got married in January - at that time we weren't officially trying, but we weren't preventing either. It wasn't until April (3 months into our marriage) that we decided to officially try.

We were married a little under a year...but we weren't not trying before that. It's always been an almost unspoken topic for us...I mean, we just sort of knew and agreed.

Our conversation about having one wasn't really a conversation. DH: Wouldn't it be great to have kids...we should try. Me: Great!

Well, dh and I got married pretty young and were both still in college plus we each dropped out of college for awhile, then went back then I went to get my masters and it was never the right time. Finally, after 6 1/2 years of marriage, I told him I really wanted to start trying (we had said soon for awhile before this conversation.) He was a little resistant at first--or more like nervous and unsure. I told him it could take awhile to conceive (not that I really believed that at the time) So I asked him to let me know when he was ready. The next month (February of this year) we were doing the deed and he didn't pull out! (sorry if tmi) I started cracking up in the middle of it and said...I take it this is your way of telling me you're ready? So short answer is 6 and 1/2 years lol.

My husband wanted to try right after we got married. I, on the other hand was freaked out! So we waited about a year and a half before we started trying.

DH and I have been together for 5 1/2 years, and our first wedding anniversary is this Friday, so we were married not quite a year when we started ttc in May.

We've been together for 9 years, married 4 1/2, and decided about a year ago that we would start TTC this August...I can't believe it is finally here!
Now, we'll see how long it actually takes for us to conceive! Of course, he thinks it will be the first time - men!

We have decided to try right away. We both know we want children and we want them where we're young enough to keep up and young enough to enjoy our retirement when they're gone! LOL. We also have other issues, my DH is a marine, and was given his orders to go to Iraq. He will be leaving in June for training, August for Iraq. So, please, many prayers for us to get prego and for his safe return!!! BABY DUST ON ALL OF YOU!!!!

We were married in May and started right away. I thought it would be a lot easier than this. Funny thing is my sister is going to start trying in September. I just told my mom that she may have two daughters pregnant at the same time!

About 8 months...We got married last December...and Dh decided he's ready to for me try and not tell him...that was his exact phrase. So I kinda have and haven't. I'm on Day 43 from coming off the BC and he was soooo excited..

We have been together for almost 4 years. I had wanted a child for about 2 years. DH wanted to wait until we were married, I finally persuaded him about 2 months before the wedding.
