Thinking of baby

My husband and I just celebrated our first anniversary; we're both 30 and definitely want a family. We've started to really talk about it recently. I'm not ready, but now I'm wondering..Some close friends of ours, who are expecting baby #2 and are 34, found out that the baby has Downs Syndrome..which has me scared. I know my body is totally different from hers, but the thought of that has always been in the back of my mind..I was thought to have Downs since my mom was 35 with me.
Anyways, my question is this: When do you talk to your doctor and start this process of pre-planning? I have an internal doc..should I go ahead and find an ob/gyn? I've told my husband that I'm not ready, but I'd like to have our 2nd year behind us before we start trying. I'd like to have our financial house in order first and I'd like to get my nursing school going at least. I'm just not in a place where I feel a baby would be the best decision for us. But I don't want to put it off too long either.
Are there things to be done before actively trying to conceive?
