    I've got a baby ban on until 2 months before the wedding, i want kids now but dont want to leave them behind when we go on our honeymoon.

    It's good fun getting the practice in before hand though !!

    I never wanna come off my pill. =/

    My fiance really wants kids. But I want to be in a bigger house first. & the money that we spend on the wedding I want that back in the savings before we start planning for kids.

  • i get really broody lately but i know for a fact that i want to get my career of the ground, go travelling and generally adjust to being married and enjoy each other so at least 5 years.. which is ages... but if it happened it won't be the end of the world coz its what my heart really wants... and good things come to those who wait.
  • im 23 too and really want a baby! im going to start trying when we get married in 4 weeks! which im sooo excited about and cant wait! I havent told anyone yet as everyone keeps asking when we are going to have kids and i just keep saying in a few years as im worried it could take a while to concieve. xx
  • Im 22 and getting married in august. We spoke about trying for a baby straight after the wedding. We've got a 3 bed house and prob could manage but i've only just finished my masters degree an wanna spend sometime doing the job i've worked so hard for. Fiances is 27 and would like a child before he's 30, so will prob wait until we have been married a year. I wouldn't want to be pregnant before the wedding as i wanna be able to have a drink and relax (i wouldn't touch a drop of alcohol if pregnant). I also work in the fertility field, so im constantly surrounded by babies and people wanting childern.

    I will be 23 when we get married in December and my fiance is 25. He wants to start trying for a baby after his brothers wedding in August 2010, he'll be 26 then and by the time the baby is born i would be 24, so seems ok. I really want to enjoy being married and see a bit more of the world first so Im torn! We bought our house 2 years ago, and it has 3 bedrooms so i suppose we need to fill it - just us and the dog right now!

    But having a baby for me would have to be a military operation - i have endometriosis so dont know if i can get pregnant, and being on the pill is the only thing that controls it - if i come off it it will get worse! AAaaaahhh!

    andrealovestom same here i keep telling everyone in a few years as i have PCOS and dont want to get my hopes up i think it'll take a while and would prefer not to have the whole are you preggers yet??
  • TwinMumVixTwinMumVix Posts: 844
    I really want to start a family ASAP!! But H2B says he wants to wait til next year.

    I have also had a lot of people telling me wouldn't you like to wait and spend some time just the 2 of you together? But we have been together 5 years and living together for 4 years, we have had loads of time alone!
  • i had my first when i was 17,second at 18 and now i have a baby due in august! they all have just a year between them all!

    i love them so much and cant wait for therm to all see mummy and daddy getmarried next year! xx

    i have a 18 month old boy! already so its not too bad..goin to wait another year after weddin to try or so
  • bridey20bridey20 Posts: 1,815
    We are going to have 6months - 1 year before trying for baby, but I too have PCOS and h2b will already be 32 when we get married (I'll be 22) and he doesnt want to be an old dad so who knows it may all change!

  • Bride-BeccaBride-Becca Posts: 1,411
    just have fun trying bridey lol
  • Nope.. no kids for me for a bit. Im too selfish right now. I want them, I love them, but I dont wanna give up my life right now.

    Getting married and then having a kid right after.. I dont know.. Id rather wait a year to see where Married life takes you. Feel out the Married life 1st, especially being so young still.
  • HI We both want children but want the wedding first!! As some have said i don't want on bump on my wedding day. I will be nearly 23 when get married next year and h2b will be 31. We are planning on saving up a bit first then start trying probably not till we have been married a year though. it is killing me though as i really want a little one. LOL we were even talking babie names last night and picke a name for a girl!!!! xx

    I really wanted us to be youngish parents (I am 22 in july and he is 25) but at the minute we are looking into moving permanently to Australia in just over a years time so it isnt the right time. We would ttc as soon as we were there and settled it. Or if we decide to stay here for two years or more or forever we will ttc straight away. I cant wait. We were going to try and have a baby 18 months ago but then he proposed and we decided to wait.

    I never understand the whole - lets just enjoy being married first. We have lived together for 3 years and been together 5 being married wont actually change anything.

  • We have started to try for one, and I am so excited by that lol!!

  • kikiswebkikisweb Posts: 388
    We are starting to try (again)on the wedding night ! We both really want to be parents as soon as possible.

    We'd love to have babies after we get married!!!

    So excited and really cant wait!!

    Im 23 now,so maybe not really a young bride, but i think i'll stay here for a while!!!

  • im thinking...but i think thats all i can do... my sil2b is planning her second and it making me broody, all i wanna do with her is talk babies! I wanna get a flat with 2 bedrooms asap too so that we can start trying but babies cost money!!! and neither of us work at the moment so it would be silly for us to even try!

    So how young is young in this forum?

    Hello lovelies!!

    It's nice to see some younger couple preparing for parenthood or being parents, we do make the best ones afterall!!

    I'm 21 in June and had Megan in 2007, she's 16 months old now! It's very hectic being a young mum nowadays, well for me not some of my friends- i'm still at university (was throughout my entire pregnancy) and volunteer at a local secondary school. My partner is 30 in September so i wouldn't class him as a young parent! haha.

    We did want to marry before having children but when i fell pregnant we just re-arranged our plans. Steve put his degree on hold, i vowed to continue mine (going to be a primary school teacher) and we got a place together although rented and getting married is unfortunately at the bottom of the list!!

    I think those who are without children before they get married are wise to have some couple time before trying for children, you don't get much time afterwards, so enjoy what time you can together and then enjoy parenthood! I wouldn't change Megan for the world, i love her to bits and she is so clever, i'm so very proud to be a mummy. x
