We’ve been married for five months and somedays I get baby fever so bad! We’re trying to wait five more years ( I have a feeling we’ll only make it to three or four) before having kids so that he can finish grad school and we can pay off all our loans before throwing kids in the mix.
But some days, it’s just so. dang. hard! I want a baby! Anybody else feel that way?
Thanks. Mini vent.

Sometimes I get that way, too! We are getting married in June, and it seems like everywhere I go, there’s baby stuff!! We are too broke to have a baby right now, not to mention the fact that we aren’t married yet and should tackle that one first, but I feel your pain!

We both feel the same way. DH and I have been married for a month and decided to wait a year or so to TTC and one of us every day is like, lets just have a baby now, and the other one has to remind the other of why we are waiting. LOL

I TOTALLY feel ya! We’ve decided to wait at least til the end of this year to start TTC. But it’s SO HARD!! I just really want a baby now…I’m going to try to make a list of everything I want to do before we have kids, so maybe that will help 1) the year go by faster, and 2) make me feel better about waiting.

I’m so glad you guys can relate!
There’s definitely a lot to be accounted for before having one. It changes your life in so many different ways.
But there’s just so much to look forward to as well! 🙂
Hubs knows I get baby fever. He doesn’t even like to think about it yet! We had a little scare a while back and he said, “Well, look at it this way. If your pregnant, it just means that’s what we’re supposed to do now!”
Aw. Love husbands.
What do your SO’s say?

@symphony: My DH gave me puppy dog eyes last night and said, “Well, what if we started in September? That’s ALMOST the end of the year…!” Very tempting, lol. He’s wanted to start TTC for a while now–even though we’ve only been married 3.5 months!

We are waiting a while too since we are young and just starting in our careers. Plus we aren’t sure if we are going to stay here or move back to CO and I want to be in a house we own.

I definitely hear ya!
A lot of my friends have popped out one or two kids and I seriously want one. I try to read about the gross/awful things that happen to your lady bits while in labor so I scare myself into not having one. Although, the absolute MINUTE I see a picture of a baby I take a turn for the worst: “AAAAAAAwwwwww BABIES. I WANT A BABY”.
My Fiance knows, and he wants to have one too. But we’re at least trying to wait until AFTER we’re married. He already has two kids from a previous relationship, so we’re trying to wait until they’re a little older too…

I want all the good stuff at once! We are doing this incredible trip through Asia this year, but I want a baby also. And to move. And to buy a house. And to change careers. Wish it were possible to live parallel lives for a while so I could do all the awesome stuff simultaneously 🙂

Oh I feel you! We’re getting married in 83 days (but who’s counting?) and I want to start trying NOW! Now now now!!! FI wants to wait until we get into a house (which we won’t even be able to start looking for until 6 months AFTER the wedding.) I think that’s funny. I’m 33. Let’s get this show on the road.

I’m right there with ya! We’ve got at least another year until we can start trying and it’s driving me crazy!

As I told another bee a few days ago – come to my house and spend an hour … 4 kids (one of which is in the process of potty training) and you will snap out of baby fever really fast!

I have a suggestion!
Become a Big Sister.
You’ll learn a ton about kids first hand, you’ll keep busy, and you will a huge difference in a little girl’s life.

I swear I go through baby fever EVER SINGLE DAY! My husband and I were planning to wait a year after we were married…BUT if it happened before then, then hell yes! Unfortunately I just recently got health insurance and there is a 12 month waiting period 🙁 so we will have to wait until December to start trying. It’s even harder because my Husband wants a baby as much as I do!
You think I would get my kid fix, I’m a two year old preschool teacher. Somedays I have 12 two year olds running around, total craziness when I actually need to get them settled down for circle time and such. We also have an infant room and I’m in there for two hours a day, they are just so dang cute! I WANT ONE NOW!
