….I think I may have baby fever.
I am SO anti-mommy. I have never really wanted kids. I have always been the one who told everyone that I was probably never going to have children. DH and I have both agreed that we are going to wait at least until we come back to the states until we talk TTC (3 years!) and I know that’s the reasonable thing. I just can’t help it. I had a pretty serious pregnancy scare a couple months ago and I guess I started to get used to the idea. Ever since then I just can’t help it. Gahhh!!!!
Please someone tell me that someone else it losing their mind over the baby thing right now. I’ve been stalking the update threads and all the adorable baby bumps are taunting me.

I have major baby fever right now. My best friend is pregnant, everyone on WB is pregnant, all my cousins are pregnant or just had a baby… babies are everywhere! And I want one too 🙂
But we have no plans to TTC for 4 years at least, more likely 5-6.

I am also feeling some major baby fever coming on! Part of me wants to start trying right on our honeymoon and the other part of me….well….doesn’t. It would be nice to enjoy some time just being married and we are both finally making some great money for the first time in our lives. I’m still pretty torn. But all these baby threads and the freaking adorable clothes at Macys are really giving me the itch.

@elliestan: OMG. I’ve been regularly having baby/pregnancy dreams! It’s driving me nuts. This is worse than “waiting”.
I’m been telling myself “Hey, chill. You’re getting a Mirena next week, for chrissakes.” but there is some deep, dark place that that nagging itch just keep coming from. I don’t think I’ve told anyone how I feel about this yet, besides the bees. lol

No baby dreams quite yet! but I totally feel the bug and I’m def a few years away from actually being “ready” to try to have one. It’s probably just hormones…be careful of holding babies. fyi, holding babies actually releases a feel good hormone in your body, and it’s the easiest way to catch the baby bug

@panterapeach: Oh, I HEAR you on the baby rabies. I think DH has them worse than I do–today, he voluntarily gave up beer–he read that it’s bad while you’re trying to get pregnant.
@zippylef: I think there’s a few of us on here who started trying to get pregnant after a false alarm, it’s how it started for us, and before, I was like you! I said I wanted to wait 5 years, and enjoy time with just the two of us. Now I’m taking my temperature and POS like all get out. It’s nuts!

I know how that is. For the longest time I was pretty sure I didn’t want kids, I’m just not a kid person. Until I met my husband, then something just snapped and I wanted them ASAP.

I am in the same boat and it is not good! I just started the pill back up a few weeks ago and am considering an IUD. It was at its worst during the whole end of the world scare. I got a little emotional and said to DH, what if the crazies are right, then I will never be able to have babies! He definitely thought I was a whack job at that moment, but didnt laugh at me, just took me to get ice cream which is why I love him.
I know the time isnt right but omg I am jealous of every baby bump update on here and my freakin facebook which is infiltrated with it!

I have major baby fever. I always have really, but it’s been more so than lately. Everyone around me is pregnant. I cannot take it anymore. Hah.

Right there with you! We had a ‘scare’ last month and we both decided we didn’t want to wait. We’re not actively trying but not actively ‘not trying’. lol If it happens it happens. We’re both in positions to have a baby(he already has a 20 month old daughter from a previous relationship) and I know he won’t mind another.
And yes, don’t hold babies, it’ll make the wanting that much more! 🙂
