Hello fellow and future mama bees!
So, lay it on me. How baby crazed were you before you were lucky enough to begin TTC?? And once you did begin TTC how long has it taken to get preggers or how many months have you been trying?
Right now hubby and I have firm plans to begin in October. Not sooner, and not later unless some event happens in our lives which makes us decide we should wait. I can’t control my baby crazy!! I am on the boards all the time and now melt whenever I see LO’s!!!
I’m officially baby crazy to the max!

I’m currently TTC and in my 7th cycle (but it’s actually 9 months b/c of my cycle lengths unfortunately), and I’m officially starting to be sad that I don’t have a baby or that I’m at least not pregnant. I’m trying to keep my chin up, but it’s definitely getting hard!
Prior to TTC, we just knew it was about time. We had been married 3 years, bought a nice big house and were ready to fill it with some kiddies!

I have not been baby crazy at all. However, DH is a nutcase! He started trying to convince me to go off the pill about 6 months prior to the wedding, claiming it would take a year for it to get out of my system, I explained that it was “up to”. He talks about it all the time and tells random strangers that we’re trying LOL. We’ve been casually trying for 2 months.

We were really excited to start trying (we planned and waited about a year after the wedding), but, also practical, i am an super organizer/planner so i put a lot of research into cost, things we would need, changes to our business and work schedule (our insurance doesnt cover routine maternity) so we began saving etc. It kind of took the fun out of some of it but i really dont like surprises when you are talking about 10 grand in expenses. I probably put about 8+ months of reading, research, vitamins and getting healthy in, this was probably overkill but oh well.
And once you did begin TTC how long has it taken to get preggers or how many months have you been trying?
We had a slip up the month before we planned to start TTC but got a BFN and the once we officially started trying……..it only took one time, didnt expect it but we were super excited it happened so quick.

we aren’t planning on ttc for another 2-3 years…but i just came back from visiting my 2 year old niece, and she is the most amazing little thing ever. it makes me want a baby so badly, i love spending time with her! even though she was fighting ear infections and crankier than usual, she’s just a fantastic little person!

Not baby crazy, I still think I was more ready mentally for a baby as a teenager coming from a somewhat big family than I am now after not having been around too many babies/toddlers for the past 10 years. But I love kids and know I want a couple kids so after a year of marriage we said lets go for it and yay got pregnant first try. But I’ll turn 30 shortly after this one is born and I’m not really stressing about it, and I think the baby is helping with that.

I was SO baby crazy. 🙂 It took us three months. He’s now 6 months old and I’m finding I’m still SO baby crazy.

We decided when we got engaged that we’d TTC right after the wedding (one year form engagement). I was pretty baby crazy that whole time, I’d be researching wedding things and always find myself looking at baby things instead.
We got pregnant 2 months after starting TTC, but miscarried shortly after. I got pregnant again on the first try after my doctor said we could TTC again, and I’m currently 23 weeks.

I find the crazy comes on more strongly at certain points in my cycle (like ovulating). Though we already have a son, I still get a bit of the baby rabies now and then (despite the fact that we are waiting for a while yet), I’m a planner though so I read lots, and have gotten into the health side of it pretty deep in preparation for when we make the decision to go for it (or not–and in that case I will at least be healthy).
I’ve also already made [mental] lists of the things we would be smart to pre-buy on (like cloth diapers etc) which I guess is pretty crazy haha.

Aww, I love all of these updates!!
Waiting is slow torture for me though! My husband routinely teases me with “If I said let’s go, you’d be all over me huh?!”
I keep trying to say No because I know I want to be at a healthier weight/place in order to do that but I know if he said yes I’d have a really REALLY hard time saying no.
I can’t wait for my turn to try! It seems like so much fun! Plus I am secretly paranoid it’ll take us awhile, but knowing my luck it’ll happen right away and I’ll be glad we didn’t try earlier.

DH got baby fever way worse and earlier than me (he’s 31, I’m 25). He wanted a really short engagement so we could start trying right away (which suited me as well). We’re in cycle 5 now, the 3rd of actively trying (charting and OPKs) as opposed to just not using any form of birth control and crossing our fingers.

@nskillet- I think I could be you twin! DH has always wanted a baby and I told him before we got married that I wanted to wait at least 3 yrs before we start trying. Well now the baby fever has hit me 100%! But we already booked a trip to Italy for November and I want to wait until after so I can enjoy the food, wine, etc. But 8 months seems like an eternity right now! So right now we are learning to live off one income and save as much as possible as I want to be a SAHM and I carry the health insurance so there are going to be a number of additional expenses.

I was NEVER baby crazy until we were engaged and decided that we would try right after the wedding. That’s when I started researching TTC stuff.
I was really excited when we started trying and then a little sad and frustrated and now I’m in the trying to pretend I’m not really trying phase. What would that be? TTPINRT? : )
We are on our 7th cycle.

I’m not TTC yet, but I’ve been baby crazy for over a year now! I’m just 20 though, fh is 24. We get married in July and want to wait 3-4 years. Working at a daycare doesn’t help, either. 😉
I constantly research everything BABY. I’m glad he is okay with it, we talk about cloth diapering, breastfeeding, etc. LoL. I can start buying baby things as soon as we get married, I just can’t use them for awhile 🙂
