There are many that feel the same! I had it really bad about a month ago, and just knowing I had the ok from DH to go off BC by spring (or whenever we got a house) was enough to make me rethink that may I want to enjoy the house and a dog first.

Honestly though somedays I think I want to enjoy all at once. Depends on the day, but I def think having a baby would be awesome very soon.

Sometimes. When I see an especially cute one. I try to envision being in labor and that cools my jets considerably.

I have about a year until we want to TTC. Some days I feel like… I could just get anotherwedding dress with an empire waist! After being with my FI for over 7 years, we have enjoyed each other plenty! Others I bring myself back down to Earth and tell my ovaries to calm the hell down. It’s definitely hard, though.

We went to Disney World earlier this month, and now I’m having the worst baby fever of my life. Half the fun of the trip was watching the little kids and how excited they were.  It’s probably going to be another 5 years before we even start TTC, but I really can’t wait to have a preschooler to take to Orlando.

Definitely.

A year ago, I was planning a wedding with the idea of starting TTC within 2 years, and now I’m in a brand new relationship… I was so ready to TTC and get my family started. Even though I’ve had to extend my timeline to find the right person, my body is still in BABY BABY OMG BABY mode. Doesn’t help that a bunch of my friends are pregnant right now or new mothers πŸ™

I feel the same, it’s so hard knowing that it will probably be a few years until we can ttc. I got pretty low about it lately but I just have to remind myself how much better it will be doing it when we have our life sorted and have the money… but it is so hard to ignor that feeling. πŸ™

EDIT: There should be a Waiting TTC thread, this should be it lol

Yeah, that happens to me every now and then. We’ve got 3 years at least until TTC time. Usually, I’ll go watch my sister’s kids. That seems to help because her 2 year old is SUCH a handful! After trying to put him to bed, give him a bath or ANYTHING, I decide I can wait 3 years and then some. Are there any small children you can look after?

Me!! We’re waiting until after the car is payed off and we’re in a house. We have a good year+ until then. I’d like to travel a bit too.

We have names picked out and a nursery theme. We’re just waiting for the right time. When we start checking things off the list it will be exciting becasue 1. we’re getting closer and 2. the things we want to check off are also things that are on my bucket list! So it’s a win-win!

I’ve been a closet baby crazy fool forever, but now that we are less than a year out (just over 9 months) I can’t stand it!  I try not to annoy DH with baby stuff but it just comes out!  I’ve been trying to work on moving the timeline up but I’ve only gotten him to move it by a month!  What is getting me through right now is saving up so I can afford a BOB stroller so I can keep up with running πŸ™‚

My fiance and I have been together for 6 years and are getting married in June. We will start right after, but even that seems so far away right now because we are anxious!!

Ummm, yes! I’m so ready to start trying, but I know we need to wait – I’m finishing grad school, and it’s important to me that I’ll be done by the time baby is born.  I’m starting my dissertation now, will finish up in about a year, and I want to be able to travel for graduation and my best friend’s wedding next May, so we’ve decided we can’t start trying till October.  I’m counting down the days!  But I’m taking the next 8 months to lose the little bit of weight I have left to get rid of and save up some money.  That doesn’t stop me from stalking the pregnancy and TTC boards and pinning everything baby related on Pinterest, though πŸ™‚
