Ask your friends with babies / little kids about how miserably sleep-deprived they are.  Works like a charm for me!

@SillyStacey:  Same here, except I’m counting down days till the WEDDING still!  So of course that’s an easy deterrent for me.  I would say that you should focus on how precious alone, quiet time is right now.  Your freedom to do whatever you want without a child.  Think of all your favorite things and then imagine trying to do them with a baby having a screamfest.

Girl I am right there with you – except we’re not even married yet! For me I suspect we’ll start trying not long after the wedding next September, having been together and talking about it forever.  But the baby fever is strongggggg!

I agree with PPs about hearing about sleepless nights/poopy diapers/etc… But it only half works on me!

I am pregnant with horrible morning/all day sickness and trying to go to nursing school. Please wait until after you finish your Master’s degree!! The pregnancy will be alot more fun if you are past any stressfull times.

Staying busy is the best thing you can do for yourself. I’m becoming a master of self-distraction. Currently I’m planning our summer vacation.

@SillyStacey:  I won’t even be married until August 2015, I don’t live with FI yet (long distance due to work), yet I already am dreaming about having a baby lol. And we probably won’t be ready for about 5 years!

I’ve had baby fever for the better part of two years, but we wanted to get married and buy a house first before having kids.  

Well…we ended up closing on our house the day before the wedding, so since the wedding, baby fever has been horrible!  Especially since the day we moved in, DH designated one of the bedrooms as “the baby’s room”.  It’s a sad empty room right now with only our halloween decorations sitting on the floor because we’re too lazy to put them in the attic.

We decided to wait until after the holidays, and start TTC in January, so we could get settled in our new house and enjoy the holidays without the possibility of morning sickness and Dr. appointments if we were to conceive quickly. 

So far, I’ve kept myself busy with decorating the house for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and now Christmas.  I do lots of crafts, babysit my nieces, and we are still unpacking boxes and organizing things.  Stay busy…that’s how I deal!

I have baby fever too. Just got married less than a month ago. We can’t TTC until the fall at the earliest as well because my doctor is on a leave of absense until then and I don’t want to see a stranger. DH also may be going back to school, which would be a minimum of 2 years. If that ends up working out for him, we will probably wait until after he’s graduated and has a job. I want him to be happy, and I am supportive. But there’s a small part of me that doesn’t want to wait that long to have kids!

My baby fever has reached an all time high! Don’t know if this works for anyone but I have a secret baby clothes stash and I find buying something cute every now and then makes me feel better! We have an “animal” last name and I’ve gone loony buying ANY and EVERY baby item with that animal on it. I have no self control! But it gives me some sort of satisfaction 🙂 Good luck girl!

I know since getting married I have it to a small amount but I think I have it mainly because I am bored and when ever I get on Facebook everuined I know is popping out a baby. But what I am using as a deterrent is the fact that I got one of those long term birth control that would be to much of a hassle to take out for now. So far it working well for us because in most ways we aren’t ready for kids and want to be married for a while and settle down before we start popping out and the birth control is preventing us from starting along that path.
