Oh man yes. We have been ntnp for a while and we’re going to start trying for real next summer after I am in a wedding but I found out I did get into grad school so now it has to wait. I knew I wanted to go back to school but kind of applied to this one on a whim and had totally convinced myself there was no way I was in so I was in the mind set of going ttc soon. It is a good and bad adjustment. But there is no way school and working full time plus a baby would work for us now. Luckily my program is only 5 semesters so not a huge delay!

Baby fever since… um… puberty? Haha. Actually, I just really, really love kids and can’t wait to be a mom, but I also logically know I need to get through a few things first! FI and I are getting married in April, then moving to England (from the US). We want to have a few years to ourselves: being married, settling into jobs, touring Europe… and then babies!! I know there will be a lot of wonderful experiences in between now and then, which keeps me sane while I wait, but really: can’t wait to have little ones 🙂 I totally bet it’s the fact that you now have an agreed upon date that’s making you extra feverish! Because now it’s “real” and you know it’s coming. It’s like if you knew he was going to propose within the next year – even though you were patiently waiting, all the sudden, you want it to happen NOW! Good luck waiting 🙂

  • Wedding: October 2014

We just got married 3 weeks ago, so people have been asking us the question of when we’re going to  have kids. We’re not going on a honeymoon until February, but hopefully after that we can have a chat to see about a timeline to start TTC. We’ve talked about it before, but can really dig into it coming up. I’d just like to enjoy our newlywed time, and be able to still drink on our honeymoon!

Age is our only factor, as by that time… I’ll be 34, and he’ll be 36. So, time is of the essence! But, we still need to do what is right for us, and go from there. Ideally, I’d like to buy a new house before we had a child but that might not be n the cards right away… and I consider a baby trumping a new house anyway. 🙂

I’m definitely in the same boat. One of my friends just had a baby and another one is expecting. they both just have so much joy. . I’ve always wanted to be a mom from a very young age, but I wanted to be married first. now that I’m married, the thought it could happen  is both exciting and a bit nerve wracking at the same time (ie  am I really ready for this as it is life changing). I’m just trying to stay relaxed at this stage (ttc cycle 1), but it’s hard reading all these posts.  I keep wondering if I should do more (charting, temps, etc).

Kacie209:  I’m in the same position (34, just got married for the first time in August) and people are BREATHING DOWN on us about babies.

I always knew I wanted kids, but I never had baby fever until we set a date to TTC. We’re trying in Feb 2015. Now that we have a set date for pulling the goalie, I am like a MADWOMAN about babies. Its like I’d been holding it back as to not influence him or something. My two best friends just had babies in the past two years and I’m just so ready to get started.

ABSOLUTELY!

I’ve always known I want to be a mother, but recently it’s become a much more intense desire. I’ve been dreaming about having a baby, and I can honestly say I’ve never felt such a deep desire before. It could be my biological clock finally kicking in – I turned 29 about 3 months ago…but at this point, I feel like there’s suddenly this crazy hormone induced “I WANT TO BE A MOMMY ASAP” thing.

TTC is right around the corner and my husband talks about our future children almost every day so the baby fever is raging right now.

winterwoodlandbride15:  Yes, me! I know how you feel! I’m getting married next June and I’ll be 30 then so we’re thinking of TTC after the wedding. I’ve been feeling broody since my early 20s but didn’t meet FI until I was 24/25. I can’t wait to have a baby and am counting down the days until the big day so we can prepare for the next exciting chapter. Good luck 🙂
