We were talking about moving in together, and I told him that before we made that commitment, I needed to know if he was willing to more kids, because I definitely wanted them. (As much as I love him, had he said no, it would have been a deal breaker.) He kinda laughed and asked how long I wanted to wait because he wanted to start trying right away. And we did.
We have talked about kids since we first started dating 11 years ago. We planned to wait until obviously first we were married and then until I had finished vet school. We threw around the idea of trying to aim to have a baby on summer between semesters of vet school, but never got brave enough to try it. (We know now it wouldn't have worked. One girl in my class did try that. Her baby was born two weeks into our junior year. She got pregnant her first month back on BCPs.) The debate was how long after I graduated to start trying. I wanted to wait until a year after graduation, but I was gonna stop BCP a few months ahead of that. Well, he convinced me to stop BCP in January and we really never started using other prevention methods for the next few months. I wouldn't have any idea who actually brought it up the first time. We just talked about it a lot.
Kids were somehow always a topic with us, even when we were in our teens. We started "trying" by not preventing so there was no real conversation about it, just more of a general agreement that we would both be happy if it happened...and here we are heading into four years later.
We talked about kids before we were a couple. I was put on BCP by my Dr because of family history of female problems. Just before Christmas 2006 we decided it was time. We announced to his family during Christmas. That was the last month of my BCP. We've been trying ever since. Well till he deployed.
We talked about when we would start trying after we got engaged. We had almost a 2 year engagement and so we felt we were ready right after we got married.

DF and I had already moved in together and had just become engaged when we had a "scare". That really got us thinking about wanting to have kids soon. We always knew that we wanted kids someday. We talked about it for a while that night, and the next week, then we decided to start trying.
