@ThinkingOutLoud:  nope,

 

i just posted about this yesterday. I have serious baby fever. We both have good jobs, and DH said that he is ready when I am but is ok waiting for 2 years. we just got married 3 1/2 weeks ago. I have been wanting a baby for awhile now.

 

Problem, DH wants me to finish school but I don’t want too bc I am happy with my job. It pays well, and we get bonuses and raises every year. 🙁

But again, DH is adament that I finish school. But I want a baby, like yesterday LoL

I am right there with you. I have been married for almost 7 months now and I have 2 children already. My DH doesn’t have any bio children. 8 of our friends are expecting right now and that isn’t helping at all..

@ThinkingOutLoud:  We waited at least a year to make sure we had a house and dog, two of the things on our “list” before we wanted to be ready. Secure your job and whatever else you need to do before going into TTC. It’s a big responsibility. My LO isn’t due until April, but if I was worried about my job, a house, payments, etc I would feel so stressed and uneasy about this pregnancy, so it feels good to know we are ok.

Try to find some hobbies. Does your house/apt need painting? Do you like scrapbooking? Things like that will help take your mind off of it a little.

@ThinkingOutLoud:  At least you made it to your wedding! We still have 3 months to go and my baby fever is out of control! I tell FI at least once a week now that I can’t wait to throw out my pills on our honeymoon 🙂

@ThinkingOutLoud:  Ugh I hate living in the middle of nowhere where they is nothing to do. The fever will still be there even if you did have stuff to do, but it sound slike even though it is, you are still going to be remain responsible and figure stuff out. Good for you!

@ThinkingOutLoud:  you are NOT the only one.  we have only been married a month and i’m ready to try.  He wants to wait at least a year, i think thats pointless.  We have a house, steady jobs, lived together for 4 years already. WTF is the point in waiting. 

lol, i’ve been wanting to have a baby for years.

I had baby fever like I NEVER thought was possible. So I talked to DH about a timeline and he was all “I think we can start trying NOW!” and it was like someone poured ice cold water all over my body…. I think I am good for another half year at least!

Go read iarebridezilla’s birth story. As long as you don’t look at the pictures of her STUNNING child, your baby fever will be cured.

ETA: I’m totally joking, btw.

@ThinkingOutLoud:  I feel your pain for sure!! I’m not even married yet 😉 and like you, I totally am not where I want to be when I have babies yet and I have some steps to take first (wedding, house and a good job)

But I have these four beautiful nieces aged 1-3 and I’m taking developmental psych where we’ve been talking about babies for like a month and my uterus is just aching to be filled. 

SO’s cousin asked him on the weekend wen he’s going to make babies and he said “two and a half years” which made my heart excited!! A year ago, I thought a year was foresee but it has FlOWN by an two and a half years seems excitingly close now!!

And don’t let the scary birth stories freak you out! You were made for this 😀
