My hubby and I are newly married, but high school sweethearts so there isn't a lot we don't know about eachother. I am turning 28 in September and since we both want 2 kids, I am really worried about going another year or two before TTC. I have suggested TTC in 6 months and he suggested 1 year. Before we come up with ANY date, I want to have as much information as possible so we can make the best decision for us and our (gulp) future family :)

Just start getting to know your cycles, and possibly start charting your cervical mucous and basal body temperature. It took me 5 months to get pregnant, and I am in my early 20's. The older women get, the longer it can take. That is something to keep in mind. There is a very good chance that you wont fall pregnant the very first month, or even first 6 months, that you try. That can be increadibly dissapointing. Just try not to get discouraged if that happens to you. Good luck.

hi ... I think it´s great that you are going to wait ... but I waited for 3 months before ttc ... now its 10 months later and still no baby ... no even pg ... some months not even ovulating ... so if you really want to wait , use this months to check you up , to see if your hormoone levels are good ... maybe check dh sperm count ... it won´t hurt to do all of this .... hopefully you´ll get pg the first month... but if not , you don´t wanna waist this time .... GOOOOOOD luck !!!

Well, if it's any consolation, I was 26 when we got married in Oct. of last year. We decided to start trying right after our honeymoon and 2 weeks after I stopped the pill...SURPRISE! We thought we'd have more time to "try" because I had researched and they say 80% of couples get pregnant in the first year...so we were expecting it to take a few months at least...but I guess practice makes perfect in our case :)

The longer you wait the longer it can take to get pregnant. Research and waiting is good, however your body is designed to use the best and healthiest eggs first. Wich is why the rate of birth defects and pregnancy complications greatly increase with age.
