73 Days till married and baby fever is crazy!

Postby hannah435 » Wed Jul 22, 2015 9:20 am

Hey there everyone! I am engaged to the love of my life! We have been together for 1 year and 6 months. We have known each other for 10 years. We both are almost 26 years old. We want to start trying to have a baby after the wedding. I am currently on birth control and have been for about a year. Does anyone have any advice for getting pregnant after being on birth control or how long it usually takes. I have already started taking Prenatal Vitamins per OBGYN request. I also need some advice on a more personal note. I am struggling with people constantly making me feel like I am wrong to want to go ahead and have a baby shortly after we get married. We both are ready and want a baby. I get so tired of everyone telling me we need to wait several years before having a baby. We want multiple kids so we want to start soon. Does anyone else get nagged at for when you say you want a baby and told "oh y'all are still young, theres plenty of time" . We know that but we are ready to start now!!! I am just needing some support and help getting through this! I cannot wait to get to know everyone and I am so excited to start using this forum has some references!

Hey!

No you are totally old enough to have a baby. I had my first baby at age 24. Was pregnant at 23. Got married at 21. My life has turned out great and I don't regret it for anything. Getting ready to TTC #3.

Just a word of advice if you are new to forums though -- I would take any/all personally identifying information out of here.

Thank you so very much for the reply! I am just having a hard time with everyone telling me not to have a baby. We want a baby so bad and we are ready in our relationship to start trying!

This may sound weird but what do you mean take off any personally identifying info?

DH and I got married last month - we both agreed that we would like to TTC right away, since we are hoping for a large family. I can't tell you how many people have already started asking when we're going to have kids. It's like there's a switch, and as soon as the ring's on, they'll all start asking! One of DH's aunts asked us at the wedding!

I don't see anything wrong with wanting to start your family right after getting married.

Don't listen to others, the decision on when to start a family is personal and should be only between you and your dh! I got married at 26 and we got pregnant just 3 weeks later, we had been wanting to get pregnant for a good 6 months before we got married so we just couldn't wait any longer. The baby fever was intense!

I will say though it was a bit annoying with people making comments about a "shotgun wedding" and joking that we got pregnant before we got married, even though the dates wouldnt even add up. I think waiting a few months would have been helpful for avoiding that.
