Last year, CARRIE UNDERWOOD said she's looking forward to spending her thirties raising kids on the farm she owns with her husband MIKE FISHER.  She'll be 31 on March 10th and it looks like she's ready to get started.

A "friend" told "Life & Style", quote, "During the holidays, they told friends and family that 2014 was going to be the year they had a baby.  They're both finally ready now.

"Mike and Carrie hoped to get pregnant in 2013, but then they decided to put it off."

Carrie's packed schedule was the reason they put last year's baby making on hold.  She did 114 dates on her "Blown Away" tour, she cohosted the CMAs, and starred in NBC's remake of "The Sound of Music".
