Community For Those Experiencing Childlessness
Logo on Rinnah - Supporting those experiencing Childlessness and Infertility

We both knew that we wanted children and that we weren’t getting any younger. However we had only known each other for 10 months! Should we start trying for a family right away or wait a while? I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer to this question but, even knowing what I do now, I have no regrets. We decided to wait six months and then try to get pregnant.

My sister and her husband had suffered from miscarriages and I knew the pain and stress that they caused. Would we be ready for that? We also wanted to spend time getting to know each other and enjoy being a couple. But we didn’t want to look back and ask “what if?” if we struggled to conceive. Six months felt like a good compromise.
