Who decided it was TTC? You, DH/DP/SO, or both?

With us, it was both of us. We had talked about it a few months earlier and decided that after my 21st birthday, we would start to try for #2.

Both of us came to the decision together of when to start TTC but DH ideally wanted to start like a year ago! Knowing now how it can commonly take up to a year to get prego I wish we did start a little earlier!

My dh brought it up in January b/c he was about to turn 28 and wanted to start thinking about a family. I was finishing up my teaching certification and was thinking of holding off a few years...well as soon as he said "let's think about it" I was like "let's get at it!" I have a few health problems (lupus for one) and we had to confirm with my specialists that it was ok for us to start trying...and it was (with some possible TTC complications b/c I don't ovulate regularly at all) so we had at it!

We both discussed me stopping B/C pills, and when we finally agreed it was the right time to stop (after deciding there was no such thing!!), the first time we BD was really strange!
To be honest, after taking pills for so long i think i half expected to get pg straight away (as soon as i stopped them, as they always seemed so important before!) But now i know its not that simple - 4months on and i am still trying!!

LOL...we talked about it before we even got married and we decided that we were going to wait until we were married a year. That didn't happen!! I started getting antsy about 3 months after we got married. We talked about it and we decided that we were going to wait until after the holidays to start TTC.

In Jan I stoped using the patch and we started TTC. I don't think that I could have waited until June!!! LOL

DH has been wanting a third for a year or two. I have been very content with 2. My 4 year old told me we should have just "one more sister". It melted my heart and I took it as a sign that we should try for one more.

if it was up to my dh, we would have been trying before we got married, but i wanted to wait a while. After I went to the DR in March and got the o.k., I decided that we would start TTC. We just started TTC 3 months ago, after being married for a year.

I decided that I wanted a child, advertised for a sperm donor, and later, my donor decided that he would rather marry me than to be a donor.

Well I have wanted a baby for a LONG time. I told DH when he was BF that I wanted a baby and he said that he wanted to wait before we had one.............. But we did not use anything to prevent .... lol We sat down and decided to REALLY try 3 months ago. I have been trying 9 months now and DH has been trying 3 months ....lol

I think it was pretty much my idea. DH knew it was something I wanted fairly soon after getting married. I'm not getting any younger, and conceiving may get increasingly more difficult.

He's on board now.

It's kinda funny, I used to always say I wanted a baby by the time I ws 25, well that came and went, and my DH teased me about it, since we hadn't even started trying. I just didn't feel ready. I turned 29 in November and we both decided if we were ever going to try for a baby that would be the right time. I went off the pill in November, we took a couple months for a my body to regulate, and we didn't want me to get pregnant right away because we had a trip planned in January (we used other protection). But seriously started trying mid January, but like a few of the other girl's on here, if I'd known it would take so long, we woulda started tryng alot sooner...LOL

We didn't really discuss it. For years we did not want children. We were so busy with our careers, traveling, buying homes, etc we just felt it wasn't the right time. I was on a new BC pill for a few months when I noticed my weight began increasing...five pounds, ten pounds, etc. I cut my eating in half and began walking each night and doing curl ups...I couldn't lose the weight. So in February I said I am done with BC. I told hubby I was not going back on the Pill.

My thoughts were much like Melissa's. I though I would get pregnant quickly. It was almost nerve racking. Now, going into month #5 I am asking myself...can I even have children? I am going to let nature takes its course for another seven months. If I do get pregnant that's great. If I don't then I know it wasn't meant to be. Depending what our thoughts and feelings are we will decide from there.

I think we both sort of wanted to at the same time. We were waiting until we were about a year married and better off financially, but then we got a scare and sort of got used to the idea and were disappointed when AF came...finally! We had a date in mind then for starting but I sort of pushed it forward a bit! Ever since, we've both wanted a baby sooooo much!! I'm only 25, but DH is 32 (on Monday) and as it's our first he doesn't want to be too old when the 2nd or 3rd comes. But hey...I'm rambling now....we'll keep working on number 1 first!

I think the day our son was born DH wanted our second . When he left for Iraq in December he was really hoping I was pregnant but I wasn't
So, finally when he got back in May we talked and decided we both think it'll be great to have our kid's close in age and with his line of work it's best to have them now instead of a few years down the road when I may have to go back to work.
