GTKY

How old are you/DH/So?

Where are you from?
Why is now "the right time" to start or add to your family?

 

How old are you/DH/So? Me (29-almost 30) H (42)

Married/engaged/ltr? Married for 4 years this March

Where are you from? From Arizona, live in Illinois

Why is now "the right time" to start or add to your family? Our son will be 2 within a week of my EDD. We had hoped to wait a little longer, but I'm excited about the possibility of having them close in age!

Re: GTKY

  • How old are you/DH/So?  I'm 27 and my husband is 30

    Married/engaged/ltr?  We have been together for 10 years and married for 3.5

    Where are you from?  Kansas

    Why is now "the right time" to start or add to your family?  My husband started his own company last January and we said we would give it a year.  If the company was doing well we would have another.  If it wasn't then we would wait.  His company is doing amazing so here we are!

  • Me 29, DH 29
    Married for 5 years
    Ohio
    We didn't want our kids super close so we thought 3 to 4 years apart would be good. Since it took us almost a year IF issues to get pg w/DD and she was about to turn 2, I stopped BC in Dec hoping to be pg by this summer. Huge surprise BFP this month! So the kids will be about 2 yrs and 8 months apart... Not that far off from the 3 year mark and I'm just so thankful we didnt have to do IF treatments this time so I'm happy!

  • How old are you/DH/So?

    I'm 26 (I'm an October baby myself :D) and DH is 27 (28 in June)

     Married/engaged/ltr?

    Engaged, but may as well just elope or something.

     Where are you from?

    Calgary, AB, Canada. Lived in Alberta for my entire life. 

    Why is now "the right time" to start or add to your family?

    DS2 will be 2 in March and even though they get along famously, there is a 4.5 year gap between DS1 and DS2, so I wanted a smaller gap this time. We're likely going to stop at 3 kids too and we want to have our kids while we're young. 

    ETA: tandb2010 - almost everyone in AB is from NS I swear it. DH is from Yarmouth and my BIL is from Cape Breton but grew up in Halifax (I think)

    Why is now "the right time" to start or add to your family? Umm, well we've been trying for 16 months so it was the right time 16 months ago, but we've had TTC issues. When we started TTC, we wanted to have been married for a year. That's all I've got really.

    Married for 5 years, Thursday is the 10 year anniversary of our first date!


    Where are you from?

    I've lived all over the country but right now call Ohio home.


    Why is now "the right time" to start or add to your family?

    DH and I didn't want a huge age gap and we're both getting older. It took a long time to get AJ but assuming this is a sticky baby, this time, even at 7 cycles, was a lot shorter!

So this baby is a little farther apart in age to our DS than we had originally planned. DD and DS are closer to 2 years apart and I love that age gap. DS and baby #3 will be closer to 3 years apart.

  • I'm 33, DH is 35.

    Married for 4 years, together for 10.

    I'm originally from NY, but moved around for a while (was living in Montreal for 7 years!) and then DH dragged me back to NY. 

    Now is kind of the perfect time for us. We own a 2 bedroom apartment. The rooms are very big so there's enough room for 2 little ones. We're getting older and didn't want to wait much longer. I just started an awesome job that pays more than my previous career so we're in a good place financially. We have family close by that can help with little ones. So it's kind of the perfect storm. We don't know if we'll stay in this area or how many kids we'll have or what we'll be able to afford down the road, but right now, things are working. On top of all that, I'm the maid of honor in a wedding in August so I'll be pregnant but not in labor at the wedding.

    Why is now "the right time" to start or add to your family?  My sis and I are almost exactly 2 years apart and I've always thought that that was the perfect amount of time between my future kids.  DS will be 2 in April so it's more like 2.5 now.

    I'm from Illinois and live in Arizona! 

    How old are you/DH/So? I'm 32, he's 33


    Married/engaged/ltr? We got married 10/3/08. (Fun fact: I just had to look at my diploma to make sure I had the year right - we got married the year after I finished my MA.) We've been together since 2005. :)


    Where are you from? I was born in Chicago, but we moved to Texas when I was in middle school.  I also went from attending a tiny catholic school to a medium-sized public school. It was a culture shock on so many levels.


    Why is now "the right time" to start or add to your family?

    DH always said he wanted to take a few years to be married without kids. He originally suggested 5 years (oddly enough - I'm now due on our 5th anniversary). At the time I was OK with that because I was debating if I would ever want kids. We were also dead broke. We've experienced a lot of personal and financial changes over the past couple of years that have created an environment that we are comfortable raising a child in and made me recognize how much I do want to be a mom.
