I have serious baby fever! All I think about it having a child. I am very maternal and I can’t stop thinking about have a little prince or princess.
Before I got married I wanted to wait at least 3 years before we started trying but that has all changed. I guess I justlove my husband so much and our life that I would love to bring a little bundle of joy into this world. We are both were maternal/paternal and have always wanted to have kids since a young age. We bought the worst house on the best street and did a full remodel so we could hace kids in a safe neighborhood where they are able to ride their bikes on the street.
Everyone usually says to adopt a puppy, but I already have 2 and started debaing adopting another one because I love them so much and they bring so much joy to my life but I know 3 dogs can be alot when we actually do have a baby.
We are only 24 and 26 and have a lifetime ahead of us. We just bought a house and both have good jobs but I want to be a SAHM so I need to wait a couple of years for my DH’s company to continue growing before we can afford to lose my salary.
Anyone else’s ideas change after they got married?
I know I should enjoy our time together now and one we have a baby everything is changed forever, but I can’t held wanting to hold someone who is made up of the two of us in our arms.

OMG yes. I have major baby fever…every time I see one I just want to give it a squeeze. And I’ve had soo many dreams about being pregnant lately!
However, I know that it’s not the right time for us…we’re in a 4th floor walkup, 1 bedroom apartment, and I don’t fancy carrying a stroller up and down the stairs. I also want to do more traveling before we have kids, and we have some weddings coming up in the next year that I don’t want to be pregnant for. But it’s WAY harder to wait than I thought it would be!

@Hilsy85- I dream about it too! I watch my cousins kids to see if that will help and it makes me want them even more! My DH and I even made a list of the places we want to go before kids and I was 100% all about traveling and now I’d rather have a baby than go to my dream places. When did this happen LOL?!

@roxy821: I know, it’s like the second that ring was on my finger, my biological clock revved up, lol. I’m forcing myself to stay away from baby websites so I don’t make it worse.

I’m not even married yet, but I have babies on the brain all the time! I don’t think we will wait after marriage.
Also, my parents when they had us continued to travel constantly with us in tow and it wasn’t really an issue 🙂

@plantains: Yeah I’ve heard it’s not bad when they’re little, since they sleep and eat most of the time…toddlers, on the other hand, are probably trickier lol.
@roxy821: Haha totally! BFA–Baby Fever Anonymous.

I totally want to start trying – I’m 29, so maybe the clock just started ticking 🙂 He’s in business school, so our plan is to start trying this summer and hopefully have a baby soon after he graduates. I know that waiting until the summer is the logical plan, because by the time we had the baby he would (most likely) have a good job…. but yeah I just want to get going! I get so freaked out that by the time we start trying we’ll run into problems, so I’m just keeping my fingers crossed and then sitting on them 🙂

I was feeling it really bad a few months ago but the fire has cooled. My logic has won out that I don’t think I want to stay in this area and I want a nice house before baby comes!

I’ve got it and I’m not married yet! I’m super maternal and have wanted to be soccer mom to 6 kids since I was super little. I’ve had to fight waves of baby fever every couple months since I was 18! I’m going through a stage now and it’s especially hard because now I know that I’m getting married and I can play with baby names and know how they’ll actually sound with his last name!

OMG yes! I was JUST telling my husband that it seems like everyone is pregnant! Every facebook announcement, every show I watch… The comment to my husband came while we were watching Dexter. DEXTER of all shows! A show about serial killers and even HIS girlfriend is pregnant lol.
I was planning on waiting 3 years before the wedding. But I was completely surprised when I felt the fever come on post-honeymoon. It was out of nowhere and I was definitely caught off guard by it.

Yeah, I have it pretty bad. UGH TWO YEARS until we’re married! Oh well, I keep telling myself it’ll be all the better and give a potential child the best life which is what is important.
