GTKY? How long did you wait before baby #1?

GTKY Question:

How long have you been with Baby Daddy (husband, fiance, boyfriend, etc.) before you decided it was time to introduce your first baby?

 

DH and I were married for 2 years before we started trying, but we have been together 5 years.

When baby gets here we will have been married 3 years, together 6.

  • 'Baby Daddy' makes me cringe every time I hear it.

    We'll have been married 2 years, together for 5 when baby arrives.

  • We've been married for almost 2 years and together for 4 1/2.
  • Loading the player...
  • we were together 8 years, married 2 1/2 before our 1st child was born.  We will be just shy of 11 years/ married 5 when our daughter is born.
  • DH and myself were married all of two months when we got pregnant. It wasn't exactly an accident but we weren't trying either. I never expected to have our first child with us when we celebrate our first year anniversary, but now I can't imagine it being any different.

    I'm with you, Kerr. I effing hate it. 

  • DH and I were married July 3rd.  I immediately stopped BC, and I found out I was pregnant late July.  I miscarried the first week of August, and I became pregnant again immediately after.  So, baby will be celebrating our first anniversary with us!  We will have been together just over 3 years when he arrives.

    I'm with you, Kerr. I effing hate it. 

    Same here.

     

    We were together about five years and married about five months when we conceived. It would have been nice to spend a little more time just being married, especially since we had many other major changes at the same time, but I was already 39.

  • We were married 5 years, together for 7, before we TTC. Our sixth anniversary will be at the end of June.

    Perfect timing for us - we got married young and wanted some time to get our life and careers in order before we added a baby to the mix.

  • We started trying just before our 6th wedding anniversary. We've been together 8.5 years.

    We were married young, so we waited until we both finished school and were "financially stable" enough to welcome a baby.

    We always wanted kids, but wanted to finish school and grow as a couple before we added kids to the mix.  That and I had a few medical diagnosis and treatments that made conception impossible, temporarily.

  • DH and I have been together about 3.5 years. We'll be married for one year on June 5. Oopsie-baby but because he's almost 37 it actually worked out well (he didn't want to be having kids too far into his 40's and we want two).
  • Married May 2007, got PG on our honeymoon and had DS #1 January 2008 (he was born early 34w5d).  DS #2 will be born right around our 4th wedding anniversary (assuming he comes on time).
