Hi! I've been lurking around for awhile and figured I would finally introduce myself and give some background on me and our situation.

My name is Kate, and I am 28, and my DH-to be is 32. We will be getting married on 9/17.

Of course, I would like to start TTC right away, although DH is a little more hesitant and would like to wait a little longer. I think he would like to move up in his job (more money, which will happen within the next year or so) before we start TTC so I could be a stay at home mom. I however see the struggles my family (SIL just had a failed invitro attempt) and friends have had getting pregnant and don't want to wait only to be met with a 1 or 2 year time frame to get pregnant.

So that's my main frustration at this point, I'd like to start trying as soon as we're married, and he would like to wait around 9-12 months. So for now, I'm going to hang out with all you girls who are WTT.

I hear alot of stories, exactly like that, where it just takes forever and I'm scared it's going to take that long. However, I know that when I tell him it will take a year to get pregnant, we'll get pregnant the first cycle, so I do want to make sure he is absolutely ready before we make a go at it.

Glad to find some other ladies in the same boat :)

We don't know at this point...I am waiting to get my health issues under control, lose more weight and save more money for hopefully a first home in the next couple of years.

I hear you 100%. I was in your situation. I got married in 2001 and would have LOVED to start right away. My hubby was the holdout. In 2006, he finally agreed that we can try. Fast forward to 2010 and I am still waiting for my baby. We just suffered an ectopic loss which was devastating. If I would have know that I would have troubles, I would have fought more to try right away. Hindsight is 20/20. I am 35 going on 36 and I need to get knocked up soon! We have to wait to try until November because of the ectopic.

I am not trying to scare you, just sharing my story. I hope he changes his mind and lets you try sooner than 12 months. Good luck on your upcoming wedding. :)

Kate
Just to let you know regarding age I got pregnant with my son at 33 and I will be 36 when we TTC #2. So you are not even 30 yet I wouldn't too worried about age. I started getting worried regarding age when I was ready at 32 and my dh wasn't. But unless you have been diagnosed with fertility issues or they run inf your family I wouldn't worry too much. Plenty of women have babies in their 30's and now even 40's and have no issues getting pregnant at all.

Anyway welcome! We are WTTC #2 in December 2011.
