    Not sure if this applies to people with children already but....


    1-How many kids are you guys planning on having?    I wasn't planning on ANY and now I have 2 :)

    2- How long after you are married do you plan to start trying?   I'm actually getting my tubes tied a month after the wedding (sorry TMI)

    3- Will you go back to work or stay at home?    I would love to be a stay at home mom but it's just not feasible at this point. Maybe some day...

    4- Do you have names already picked out? If so, what are they?  Jaimen and Carlee

    1-How many kids are you guys planning on having?
    3 Kids, hopefully we will have twins :)
    2- How long after you are married do you plan to start trying?
    We said 2 years but we've been marriend 8 months and when people ask we still say "in two years" so I feel that two years is going to sneak up on us.
    3- Will you go back to work or stay at home?
    I will go back to work with the first one but after that I might stay at home part time.
    4- Do you have names already picked out? If so, what are they?
    Yes, we love the name Avery for a boy but it's starting to become popular as a girl name. We decided on Raegan for a girl. I also love Emmett and Naomi or Clare.

    omg, there are SO MANY cute babies being born lately!

    1. I think I've convinced FI that 3 might be better than 2, but now mom's pushing for 4, lol...

    2.  At least one year.

    3. I'd like to stay at home, or at least just work part time.

    4. I love "last name" names like Avery, Harper and Jackson, but nothing set in stone.

    1-How many kids are you guys planning on having?  

    2- How long after you are married do you plan to start trying? My residency isn't over until 2013 and I've basically been given the "don't get pregnant in this program talk" (pretty sure totally illegal).  Let's just say it will be a few years.

    3- Will you go back to work or stay at home?  Back to work, too much invested in my career.  Plus I think my FI would love to be a stay at home Dad, which I think is adorable.

    4- Do you have names already picked out? If so, what are they?  Girls-Irene or Esther (family names), haven't really thought about boy names yet.

    1-How many kids are you guys planning on having? We have a very solid plan set for two... close in age if possible. I'd love to have twins and just be done with it in one quick swoop.

    2- How long after you are married do you plan to start trying? At first we said two years, but now I'm thinking three. I just don't feel anywhere near ready. I turn 27 next month, so I'm thinking kid #1 sometime between 29 and 30... and then kid # 2 sometime before I turn 34.

    3- Will you go back to work or stay at home? Go back to work. I can't imagine being a full-time mom. However, I would love to find a job that would let me be at home a lot more. I am already starting to hate 9-5 office jobs.

    4- Do you have names already picked out? If so, what are they? I love any name that ends in an "n" sound... they go with our last name. For girls, I really like Madeleine, Gillian, and Peyton. For boys... Ethan, Jackson, or Nolan. But, I'm a firm believer in the concept that what you may have in your head before birth or even conception may not actually FIT the child. My parents were all prepared to name me Sarah Frances, but the day I was born, they totally changed their mind and I became MaryBeth Kimball.

    1. 2-3 kids,  I want both a boy and girl so if we dont get it by two we will try for three, but we are stopping there even if we get all three boys.
    2. Hopefully not long!  I have been off BC for almost a year and nothing has happened so I have a feeling it might be difficult for us.
    3. I will likely go back to work. Id love to stay home but financially don't think thats an option.
    4. Yes, Connor Dean for a boy and not sure for a girl yet...  Kaylee was a favorite but now it is so popular and two of my friends have named their girls that so I dont think we will end up with it.

    Oh my god, veijes, I LOVE your list of names. Avery would be very high on my list if it didn't sound yucky with my new last name (it starts with an "e" so first names ending in vowel sounds seem to blend into it in an icky way.)

    Also, Naomi and Clare are totally on my potential-middle-name list ;-)

    Thanks...DH hates the name Naomi so it will never pass but the reason why I love it so much is because my great grandma's name was Neoma Clara so I thought a "new age" name could be Naomi Claire.

    3-4 kids!

    At least a year before we want to start trying. We really want to have some of my student loans paid down and own a house first.
    3- Will you go back to work or stay at home?
    I really would love to stay at home, we'll see what financial situation we are in at that point. My mother and FMIL were both stay at home moms and I LOVE that idea!

    Oh, god, I know how that goes. I LOVE the name Gillian, but my hubby has some chip on his shoulder about one of his high school classmates named Jill  and is therefore terrified of our daughter being nicknamed Jill. Therefore, I don't think I'll get away with that one.

    But yeah, unless your DH has a concrete reason why he hates Naomi, he should get the eff over it, because your reasoning is wayyy to cute.

    I loved reading all this! I'm back for a moment before bed so I will answer... 1. 3-4, though FI says 2, haha 2. Probably at least 3 years. I want to graduate law school and get experience in the legal field first. I get baby fever every now and then though. 3. I probably wouldn't be a stay at home mom because I have invested so so much time and money into my prospective career. 4. No names for sure, but we both realized we have special family ties to the name Warren for a boy and really like it. I love the name Aurora for a girl but FI hates it!

    I'd like to have 3 but FH wants 2. I really have no idea when. Shortly after we get married probably. I'm sure I'll always be working... at least part-time. I just started liking the name Charlotte. I always think of names and forget them, darn it! I guess I need to start writing them down.

    We'll probably have 2.  I'd love 3 but that might be a financial stretch for us.  I'll definitely go back to work.  Kudos to those who can stay at home with their kids but I know that I am NOT one of them.  Plus, we're on my insurance.  :-P   

    DH and I stopped trying to not get PG just after Christmas (a year and a couple months from the wedding but we're 30 so time is starting to tick for us) but now we have to wait until June to try again due to a scheduled vacation and not wanting to tick the airlines off more than they already are by flying pregnant past 7 months.   I'm maybe 75% sure that we actually were successful this last cycle but it didn't stick.  Won't go into details because that is just kinda TMI. 

    Lol - I have a list on a post-it note at work and I write down names that I like.  I tend to be drawn to "older" names.  For boys, I really like Miles, Henry, Benjamin and Max.  For girls, I like Amelia, Mara, Elena, Regina (nn Reggie!) and Julia.

    Good post, Viejes! A bunch of girls on my month board are pregnant, some got pregnant on their honeymoon. So the talk over there is consistently baby-related and I totally hear you with the baby fever! That being said ...


    1-How many kids are you guys planning on having? 2-4

    2- How long after you are married do you plan to start trying? We've been married 4 months, and it'll be another couple years before we go for it.

    3- Will you go back to work or stay at home? Probably stay at home at first, but I have to stay busy and I'd love to start my own business.

    4- Do you have names already picked out? If so, what are they? Not really, but I love Mila (pronounced "My-la") for a girl and, after PP, Nolan for a boy!

    2- How long after you are married do you plan to start trying? at least 3 years, I"m only 22 so I want to be able to spontaneous for a while longer and I'm not ready to be responsible for a little being, other than 3 hour stints of baby sitting :)

    3- Will you go back to work or stay at home? I want to stay at home for a few months but over all go back to work.

    4- Do you have names already picked out? If so, what are they? I have a notepad document with all the names I love, here are a few. I love boys names on girls and I love the name Charlie :)

    1 - 2 kids. I think 3 would be a lot of fun but we'll see what happens.

    2 - At least 2 more years. I want to be done with grad school.

    3 - I think FI will probably stay home. Like a lot of you I also have far too much invested in my education and I am the bread winner so it would be much harder for me to stay home. Plus I think I would go nuts!

     4 - I love traditional names I have to say. I keep reading a lot of articles about people who give their kids names with alternative spellings and they kids really struggle with writing in school. My only problem is my family has taken all of the good names. I love James, Sophie, Charlie... All family members already though. I might try to use Robert after my father and grandfather. I have also like Lily, Lynn, Ella. I am sure it will all change again.

    I have had baby fever for about a year now.  I can't wait to be a mommy :)

    1-How many kids are you guys planning on having? FI wants 2, I want 4.  He always says...'We will see after 1 how many you want' :)  It will probably end up being 3.

    2- How long after you are married do you plan to start trying? Honeymoon :)  We are so ready.

    3- Will you go back to work or stay at home? I would love to be a stay @ home mom but I don't think it will be practical since I am the bread winner.  We have a @ home business so if that took off and we started making a full time salary, then I totally would.

    4- Do you have names already picked out? If so, what are they? Girl = Kendall Kay & Boy = Ryzen James

    1-How many kids are you guys planning on having?
    We are hoping for one boy and one girl... but if it turns out to be two of one sex.. then we'll probably try for a third!
    2- How long after you are married do you plan to start trying?
    We will probably wait a year, then start trying.
    3- Will you go back to work or stay at home?
    Depending on our financial situation, I will hopefully stay home until they are in school.
    4- Do you have names already picked out? If so, what are they?
    We're in love with Lilliana Rose, and Landon Gregory :)
