My fiance and I (34 more days to go).. have been ready to start TTC for some time now… but we both agree we would like to have our wedding first, so that I am able to drink there, and on the honeymoon… I stopped my birth control pills beginning of April, but we have used protection… But there are times when we get that “baby itch” soooo bad that nothing else seems to matter, about the drinking at the wedding, we would rather start TTC. I just have to get through 34 more days! LOL has anyone else felt like this about being so anxious to start a family?

I’m pretty sure they make a cream for that.

My fiance is VERY anxious to start a family. So much that he even throws around the idea of having a very simple small wedding.
I have recently begun to get the baby itch, but getting married first is VERY important to me. We will definitely be trying RIGHT AWAY to get pregnant.
If I were you, I’d start taking some vitamins, even pre natals. My Dr. said its great to get the good stuff in your body before trying to have a baby.
Good Luck! and 34 days are going to go sooo fast!

I want a baby! And DH knows how badly I want to start TTC, but he’s not quite ready. Not that we’ll ever be 100% ready, but oh well. We’re aiming to pay off one of our cars first, so hopefully that will go by fast!

I got pregnant 2.5 weeks before the wedding. I didn’t know I was pregnant until we got back from the honeymoon. I drank the days leading up to my wedding, on my wedding, after my wedding and on the honeymoon- oops!) I told the doctor and she said it was completely fine that I drank before I knew I was pregnant.

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
I know exactly how you feel. We are trying to “hold off” on TTC until late summer/early fall. Have you started taking prenatal vitamins yet? Most doctors recommend that you take them 3 months before TTC. Although baby fever is very powerful, I would try to resist for the next 34 days!

Ive had baby fever for a long time. As much as I would love to have start trying and have a baby (and DH knows it) I know logically that we are not ready. We are not ready financially, we want to spend more time married with just the two of us, travel more, etc. There are just times when I wish I could be a few years older so we could have already gotten to that point! We will probably wait about 4 years, which feels like forever!!

I’d love to start trying after we get married but I stupidly left my teaching job last year, but I really wasn’t happy but my worst regret is that I left the job I had before that, I was self-managing could work from home, company car etc, good pay and could’ve easily had maternity leave. I’m now in no-mans land so it wont happen. [Seriously kicking myself]

We won’t be ready for another few years, but I totall have the “baby itch”!! 2 of our friends are pregnant, my cousin is 7 months along, my boss is 8 months, and one of FI’s co-workers is preggo as well. It’s hard not to get baby fever when you are surrounded by so many pregnant ladies!!! Oh well, at least I will have a lot of cute babies to play with! 😀

We both absolutely have the baby itch. At first, it was more me than him, but he has recently jumped on the “ASAP” bandwagon. Last week we were looking at houses, when the realtor mentioned it wasn’t that serious to have our first house be in the perfect school district because we had plenty of time before we would have children. My FH immediately said, “No, we don’t have long at all”. <– Completely took me off guard. I have a feeling shortly after our wedding next year we will start TTC.
I agree with the other posts, try to refrain just so you have no concerns or worries- or morning sickness! Enjoy your wedding and then move on to the next exciting adventure!
Best of luck!!! <3

I’ve still got 5 months to the wedding and then we aren’t going to start trying for like 7-8 YEARS. stupid careers 🙁 oh well. i’ll just have to deal with it. anyone else have to wait that long?

i sooo have baby fever! i’ve been married 4 months – stopped taking my BC right after my honeymoon but we aren’t TTC quite yet. I think about babies all the time, my sister had a baby a little over a year ago, my husbands sister is due next week and my coworker who i work side by side with is due in july! its all around me, i cant escape it. but while i dream of the day i get preggo i’m just not quite ready to pull the trigger – i just turned 25 on Monday and i just need a little bit more time – one last summer of wild and crazy fun (well i dont get that crazy anymore), but thats what i keep telling my husband.

I’ve had baby fever for the past 15 years (I’m 24!).
It makes me mental.

I def do, but we’ll only start TTC after our second wedding in June 2012 (2 different religions so two weddings, if you’re wondering why), so its still a loooooooooooong wait for me
