1 or 2 years. We were trying but that's just how it went for us. Now we have three kids and our family is pressuring us to stop having kids! lol, that is a choice between you and your husband, there is no pleasing the family!

My husband and I conceived pretty much right away, and that was our goal. This wasn't due to family pressure at all, it was just what we wanted-we'd been together for a while and were ready to start our family. Parenting is one of the most rewarding jobs-still it is VERY hard and can be quite stressful. If you're feeling pressured, take time to talk with those who are pressuring you about what a big decision it is!

We were about 4 1/2 years after our marriage but that was with 2 years of infertility. Our family pressured us until we started having issues, then the pressuring stopped and the unsolicited advice of tricks to get pregnant, the best fertility doctors, etc started. lol

We enjoyed 2 years together before trying to start a family. Sometimes I wish we waited longer, but we were in our 30's so we couldn't. Good luck!

We were married for 9 months before our baby was born, we got started immediately. We wanted to have our children as quickly as possible and hopefully enjoy our 40s as empty nesters.

We're not married, but we were together for 2 years, before we started trying. It took us a year to get pregnant.

Our family pressured us to NOT have children. They don't like us together. But we were married for 2 years before we did.

We weren't pressured, and we were married for a year.

No pressure in my life, and I'm not married.

Within the first month after our wedding we got pregnant. Surprised we didn't get pregnant earlier honestly.

We waited 2 years the we planned for a little bit before we started trying. We did feel a lot of pressure from both families because we were together for almost 6 years before we were married and there were no grandchildren on either side yet. I hated the pressure and honestly held off a touch longer than we had discussed because of it.

My family was against me being pregnant and now I have a talented kid.

We were married young and haven't felt any pressure until the last year or so. His cousin had a baby so now everyone thinks we should since we've been married longer. We had actually started saving and planning before any of the comments started rolling in but now that we have been trying for a few months, I feel this pressure to "get it right" and I'm worried its taking too long.

I feel so much pressure to expand on our family. Its overwhelming.

I got married and people started asking if I am pregnant right away (my husband and I are together since high school). After a month I got pregnant so now there are people thinking that we  actually got married because of the unexpected pregnancy lol

the baby will be due a month after our 3rd year wedding anniversary! never had pressure from the family. just both me and my husband's choice.

Yes, at every family dinner all the relatives humiliated me for not having children, some even blamed me. but the truth is that I didn't care about what they said. I made up my mind when I was confident in my abilities, and I don't regret a thing.
