Path to a baby...: Young, fertile, and having sex is the fastest path to some cute babies. Of course, be sure to be married, settled down, with good jobs that provide health insurance (babies have many, expensive doctor visits). Babies can be spaced 1-2 years apart, meaning reliable birth control methods are important between babies. Urine pregnancy tests are accurate by 3 weeks after sex.
