    we weren't trying either (we weren't really preventing it either)....

    We were married for 1 month when I got pregnant.... I have 11 weeks left!

    He or she will be born before our 1 year anniversary! Surprised

    DH and I have been married 6 months and neither one of us is ready yet,  we are still kinda young and want to enjoy each other first and do more vacations and what not.  I like to say that we are both still "selfish" right now. We are shooting for 29-30, so another 3-4 years.

    We're getting married next October.  I'll be 30 and he'll be 33.  We are thinking probably about a year after we get married, but it depends on a lot of other factors.

    We got married about a month ago and I think we might start trying soon. Originally we were gonna wait about 1 year to try, but I looks like it is going to be less then that. I just don't want a winter baby if I can avoid it so I don't want to get pg March, April, or May lol (I know I'm being picky when it doesnt really matter)

    Mock - CONGRATS!!!

    Manda...we went to high school together (deja vu, and I'm sorry if I wrote this somewhere else too!)

    We're getting married in May next year. I don't think we'll be waiting too long, but I'm MOH in a wedding at the end of July, so not before then...hard to party with a baby on board!

    Congrats Mocknine!

    We seem to talk about it a lot. But still aren't sure what we are doing yet. DH wants to, I'm not sure. I would love a child, just not so sure I want to be pregnant. We know we have to make a decision soon, I'm 36, but am waiting to get a green light from my doc. We are still a long way off.

    Ideally, I'd say I'd prefer to wait a couple of years, but the clock is ticking! So we don't have as much time as I would like.
