How soon after your wedding did you get pregnant?

Recommended Posts

I would say don't rush it. Get your schooling out of the way--its way too hard when you have kids and juggle education. Get yourselves established financially unless you already are in addition to your FI. I am older, 35, and was established financially along with FI and we had our son (who is 2), because I did not want to wait until a wedding (lol). In any event, the point is enjoy your time together and get your schooling out the way. All the best..

We waited 6 months. But, we already lived together for four years so we had that "alone" time and we are both financially stable and ready. Not to mention, I've been given a small window of opportunity by my doctors. So there's that.

My fiance and I plan on waiting at least a year after our wedding before trying to have babies. He is a teacher and wants to plan the pregnancy where I have a baby around May or June which is his summer break. I am 30 and he wants to have 3 kids and I figure we can't wait too long.

I know... I can be stubborn at times. We will both be 24 when we get married. And we will wait until I'm at my at first nursing job for a year before trying. Like mentioned, We already have lived with each other for a while, but we still don't want to rush in the end. thanks everyone for your thoughts. Our time will come! Patience is a virtue.

We got married after 9.5 yrs of dating and a 3 yr engagement and didn't have any plans for children at first. Well, our wedding was in October and I got the "urge" in April to get off the pill (DH was not opposed lol) and got pregnant in September:) I agree with other girls who say that your education and financial stability have to come first, especially considering how young your are. You'll be glad you did! wink.gif

I got pregnant a little over a month after we got married blush2.gif It was important to me to finish school and become financially stable before I got married and started having children. So, when I did get pregnant my DH and I were very secure and relieved with the fact that we would be able to afford a baby without struggling.

 

You should finish your schooling for sure! Especially with the economy today, you need as much education as you can to make yourself stand out from everyone else when it comes to the job market. Maybe get a second puppy and it will take up all your time and give you lots of love!!!

We have been married for 9 months (yesterday, yay!) and still not pregnant. Our original plan was to revisit it in 2 years. But now that there is little over a year left, it seems so close. I am glad that I havent' gotten pregnant, but we worry that we will have trouble when we do since we are both 30 already. Ideally, we'd wait yearssssssssss, but I think we will probably have to start trying in 1-3 years.

We started trying during our wedding week, and I got pregnant 6 months after our wedding. We had dated for 2 1/2 years and lived together for 2 years, so we had our alone time as well. We were both very ready to start a family before we got married. Now we have 12 week old Luke :) I would not change that for anything in the world!!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
