Clicky: How long were you and DH/SO together before having 1st child?

My husband and I were together for 8 years before I got pregant, we had tried for 5 years though. Most people are amazed that we waited so long (they assume it was planned that way)....so I'm just curious for the heck of it - How long were you and baby's daddy together before having your 1st child? [Poll]

Re: Clicky: How long were you and DH/SO together before having 1st child?

  • We had been married for two years, but we dated for five years before that
  • Together 5 years, married for 2 before DD came along.  You may want to rewrite your poll because I wasn't sure if I should click on the "3-5" or "5-7."

  • Together for 7, married for 3 years before DD came along.  We had not been trying the whole time because I was in school and so was DH.  Then, I was working but DH was in residency and then fellowship.  We started trying when he had 2 years to go in his training.
