@clockwerk:  I know the feeling! The timing just isn’t right for us either, and I know that, I really do, but dammit I want a baby!

When I’m finished school and we officially tie the knot (elope) and finish house renos (they seem endless!) and start paying down my student loans…. then maybe. It seems so far away and makes me sad.

@clockwerk:  it is sucha  relief that i am not the only one who has baby fever. 

i am 28, i am in school right now and hope to finish within the next 1 1/2 but I want a baby so bad. My wedding is in 2 mos. but I don’t want to have a baby right away but I reallllllllly want one! I am so ready to be a mom and give my future child all the things I didn’t have. I see all my friends and family having babies and its such an amazing experience for me, I can’t imagine how it is for them.

I feel you hun. I’m coming up on my one year and the baby fever is killing me. We are both 27 in fairly stable jobs. Mainly we are waiting to but a house hopefully within the nex year and half. I watch my husband with my neices who are 6 and 3 and my ovaries just start yelling at me.

I’m the same way. We recently purchased a house and I’ve had baby fever forever. We are waiting until 2015 (wow that seems long) to start trying so I’ll be done with my master’s degree. I’m currently on a week long trip with twin 20 month olds and it hasn’t cured the baby fever so I don’t think anything will! I would love to start sooner but I know I need to be patient. We’re both fairly young but when I see all our friends and family having babies I get pretty upset that I have to wait so long.

@clockwerk:  I think there is definitely such a thing as financially and emotionally ready, and you will be a much better parent for waiting to get to that point! I know it’s hard, we all get hit with baby fever (I have it too!) but it’s best to wait until you are in a situation that you are well equipped to deal with how hard having a kid is. Especially financially, seeing that finances are typically the biggest source of stress on a marriage, I think you need to make sure you are stable before you bring kids into the equation because it only gets harder!

@clockwerk:  Are we the same person??? lol. I’m getting married next april and am 21. I feel exactly the same!!! The only thing is, everyone around me is starting to accept the idea of a baby in the family soon after the wedding – except for FI. He’s kinda the only opinion that matters and the only one that opposes mine 🙁 I wish they knew how hard it was to be waiting for soooo long!!!! 2 years so far for me!
