    Just trying to see how soon everyone had kids after their weddings...
    As for me and my fiance, It'll be atleast a year and a half before we can start trying since I'll be in my last year of nursing. After school we are planning to relocate from KY to Charlotte, NC (ANYONE FROM CHARLOTTE?!?)

    I've had such a strong urge to have children for awhile now... It's driving me crazy! I'm about to be 23 in June, and realize I have plenty of time.. I just don't know what it is. And YES I have a puppy! Still not helping!! LOL

    Anyone deciding to wait atleast a year or more like us?

      I was 4 weeks pregnant at our wedding!

      It does suck to have to wait when you have a strong urge now, but it probably is best to wait until your done with your nursing program. It'll go by quickly!

          I give my fiance a hard time about having children, but I know deep down he's right in regards to finishing school and getting established in a new state first. (I will never let him know this, though!)

              DH and I are not going to start officially 'trying' until January next year...we've had some student loan debts and stuff to pay off, and we are thinking we'll be ready next January...that will be 3 years after we got married...

                I got pregnant on or right after our wedding trip. We said we'd start trying when we went to Jamaica totally not expecting it to happen right away. Good luck when you start TTC!

                  We are getting married in June and will be 26. We are not planning on starting to try to children for several years 3-4. I too, often have the desire to have children now but we are planning to wait. We want to pay off some stuff and be a bit more secure before trying. Plus we really want to enjoy some married time for the two of us prior to having children.

                    I totally agree about having some alone time and to get established before having kids, but I can't help but be jealous of everyone having honeymoon babies!! Oh well, we will SEE!

                      we're waiting also. we were 24 when we got married so although we married fairly young, we didn't want to be that young when we have kids (i know you're 22, i'm not judging, just speaking from our perspective). sometimes it's tough though because emotionally i want one!

                      my best advice it to make it a goal to get as much done in the next year as you can (for us, it's 3 years). our goals are to keep our credit cards paid off, pay off our cars, i finish my career change, and we hike macchu pichu. it's easier to put off a baby when you put some things in front of it.
