    No babies yet.  At least.... not planning on babies yet.  It's not a secret.  I like the way my life is now... and I don't want to add a baby into that right now.  Plus, with me having to work two jobs... that's not exactly condusive to being pregnant.  So until I can work one job... no babies.

    We'll be trying soon.  I wanted to enjoy a little bit of time settling into our house and just being married.  But we don't want to wait much longer to start, especially since DH wants 6 kids (yeah, not gonna happen).

    I hate being asked.  Or, people telling me that babies are next now that we're married.  I want to tell them to pause because a new job, new house and a savings account are first before a baby if we can control it.

    I HATE being asked when were having kids!

    We talk baby names all the time but we are not trying yet. We both want to wait a couple years. Honestly I don't want to TCT, I think it puts a lot of pressure on a relationship. I want a if it happens it happens type of thing. If it don't happen then I guess we will track and such.

    I'm not ready to give up my socal life anytime soon.

    I know I am going to get flamed for this, but when you become a parent you start charting things like how much they poop and pee.  You discuss rice cereal vs wheat cereal.  This stuff is BORING.  I feel like everyone I know who has popped out kids recently has become completely stripped of their personality.  I don't want to be like that.

    And speaking of babies, has anyone watched that new show on Lifetime?  I think it's called One Born Every Minute?

    I watched it On Demand last night and I'll say, if you're either TTC or TTC soon, it's going to make you want a baby even more.  However, if you don't want kids any time soon, I think it'll reaffirm that as well.

    I have major baby fever and we've been talking a lot lately about names, etc. But we know we do not want to TTC until we move this summer. I'll probably go off of my bc after we move and then whatever happens happens. I wont be crazy about charting and trying to get pregnant immediately but we won't not be trying either.

    Exactly what Amer said. I love my social life; especially alcohol. And FI and I have a lot of travelling to do. So we won't even be thinking about it for at least 5 years.

    In the beginning, I don't think we will be TRYING too hard, just not trying NOT to anymore... Then at some point, I'm sure we will start tracking and actually trying to plan for it.

    This is what I meant for us too.

    Plus I think I mentioned before I have a fear of not being able to have kids. So I think if I would chart right off of stopping BCP and nothing happening I would most likely upset my self over it.

    FI and I were kinda trying when we first got engaged... it just felt right. Well, we weren't actively trying NOT to. I'm kinda glad it didn't happen.

    We'll definitely start right after we're married... My hope is that we have a 3 bedroom house first though, but we'll see. We could make do in his 2 bedroom, I just would rather have a 3. I want a huge family, he'd be happy with 4.

    I swear, having a baby doesn't strip you of your social life. I have a 2 year old and I still find time to a) spend with her and b) have grown up time. If I didn't, I'd go crazy. But we do fun stuff at home now, (BYOB) with a bunch of our friends. Like the pizza night I mentioned a few weeks ago. So much fun. We sit around, drink tons of wine, make pizza on the grill, (Try it- it's awesome) and sit in the hot tub. I'd honestly rather do that then go to the bar anymore.

    Our timeline is:
    2011- House (check)
    2012 - wedding
    2013-14 - TTC

    TTC is based on FI getting his degree and a job using it.  And no prossibly of deployment if he goes into the guards (which he most likely will).  I don't think I can handle a new baby and him leaving.

    I think why my DH and I arent TTC might sound selfish to others but it works for us.
    2010- Married and enjoying it
    2011- Buy a house, get settled, go on vacation for our 1 year anniversary
    2012- My best friend gets married in July of 2012, I do not want to be pregnant for any of her events.... Plus we would like to try to plan a vaction in 2012 too....

    I would say once her wedding is over and if we plan a vacation, after that or DURING the vacation ;) we would "not actively prevent it" anymore....

    we don't have kids for another 5 years. We want to enjoy being together since we've spent more time apart bc of us being away at school. We also want to be financially stable first.

    We recently discussed TTC over the summer.  That honestly doesn't work well for me b/c I want to be able to be there in the spring for my dance classes.  We are now thinking maybe September but then I don't want to be all big and hot in the summer lol.  I think the best time for us would be in the spring but I'm not quite ready yet but don't want to wait another year to start.  I have a doctors appt in March to change a medication I take that you can't take when preggers and then I am going to probably have my BC removed in October at my annual obgyn appt.  After that, I'm thinking whatever happens happens and my dancer self will just have to deal with it.
