I dunno, I’ve thought about kids, but I just don’t get super excited when I see babies. I’m just like,”Oh, hey.. it’s a baby. No, I don’t want to hold him/her.” My SO is just the opposite, he LOVES babies and small children and will coo and wave to them.
I get more excited with puppies, lol. Bring a dog around me and all I want to do is pet and play with it.
He definitely wants children, and I’ve thought about it, but I’m just not overwhelmed with excitement about it. Maybe later on in life I might be, but I just have too many ambitions right now.

Neither of us want kids, but I probably actually consider it more often than him. However, I go right back to “nope, no thank you” after about….5 seconds.

My SO’s sister had a baby right out of highschool and he’s really close to his nephew. He definitely more excited about and better with children than I am. She’s due to have a second baby in about a month and he’s dying to go home to see her and the baby.

He gets crazy excited when he sees kids and babies. He always says “Let’s get one.” We both agree that we wanna wait until after the first year of marriage to start trying though.

My FI has children on the brain for a couple years now which have just been exacerbated since his sister got knocked up. We’ve been together for a long time and we’re in our upper 20’s so i can understand his point of view. After 9 years i definitely consider us a stable household but i still have goals in front of me that i don’t even want to think about it. It gets pretty bad, we’ll be shopping and he’ll point out car seats and exclaim how we both have “family cars”. We’ve been together 9 years now, i still don’t want children. We’re currently looking to purchase a house which i think should come before any talks of children and i want a career change so to me those are important goals to achieve before i’ll be satified with our lives as one.

DH wants a baby so bad. I’ve never been baby crazy and I would have been fine with waiting a bit longer to start a family. But he convinced me to try and now I’m knocked up!

DH caught baby fever way before I did. A few months before our wedding, I finally hopped aboard.

I don’t want kids for a very, VERY long time. I’m 22 years old and to be honest I don’t think I’m ready. I’m more of a borrower. I love to hold and play, and then give back to mommy at the end of the day!
He ADORES kids. Kids are still a “maybe” for later on but he FOR SURE wants them. Now with that said, I’m not ruling out the possibility that I’ll change my mind later..
I know he doesn’t want kids now, because we really need some financial stability. But he sure as hell won’t object if I get pregnant hahaha

The last 6 months or so he had mild baby fever and I had it pretty bad, but I took in an almost-two year old for 3 months this summer and it gave him baby fever like you wouldn’t believe! If it continues like it is, we’ll prolly start trying right after we get married even though we’ll still be quite young. (Though we aren’t engaged yet so there’s still time for it to wear off!)

We both love babies and children. However, he is more baby crazy in that he wants a child yesterday. He’s 8 years older than me, so it’s understandable, but he wants to start having children asap (read yesterday) whereas I would be just fine waiting 9-12 months after we get married. He’s probably going to win this one though!
I’m actually a bit nervous about having kids because I’m afraid he will hog them from me and like him better than me – he is amazing with children. He’s kind of like the dog whisperer for kids!

Neither of us. We both are definitely not baby/kid people, and wish to be childfree for the rest of our lives. I can’t see myself ever wanting kids, I feel awkward around them. So if I had to pick, I would say SO because he has a 6 month old niece.

He is, but he’s also two years older than me. I think I’ll get there in time. I’m kind of surprised at the poll results considering most of my girl friends are pretty baby crazy. Do you think the title is throwing people off?

Ha, I wish. DH definitely thinks about kids and talks about our future kids, but I’m definitely the one with the baby rabies. ; )

I don’t want children at all whereas he’s open to the possibility. He’s more into the idea of having children than I am, but we’ve discussed it quite a bit and have decided (at least for now) not to have kids, especially because of my physical disabilities. He’s not absolutely INSANE about the idea, though. Neither of us are really…kid people. More like dog and cat people, haha.

My FI absolutely has a bad case of baby fever. When we’re out at a restaurant he will just stare at cute babies to the point that I’m fearful the parents will think it has shifted from an adorable and admiring place to kind of a creepy, I’m-about-to-take-that-baby place. I do love that he feels so ready to have kids though.
