I have two good friends that are prego and it’s giving me premature baby fever. I feel like I’m going crazy and my SO and the pregnancy test posts on the Bee aren’t helping at all because I love to POAS. Besides, I’m trying to plan a wedding here. Geeze!
Should I get a puppy? Any suggestions?! Anyone ever experienced this?

Definitely experiencing this. Already have a puppy, and while she’s great it hasn’t really cued the fever. Also looking for suggestions!

@lina010: +1! Since getting engaged, two of my coworkers announced they are pregnant with twins, and today another announced they were pregnant (don’t know how many yet). We now joke that there’s something in the water…. guess after my wedding I’ll have to start drinking it. I hear you on the planning the wedding… it’s like really? What happened to our thunder? 🙂
I’m a dog lover, so I say get a puppy! Our dog doesn’t exactly fill the shoes of a child, but he’s a joy. I started a Pinterest board for nursery ideas so when the time comes, I’m ready. 🙂

LOL! I’m the same way. I’ve decided to start my baby/pregnancy/birthing/parenting research early. So I’m reading lots of books and trying to improve my nutrition and stuff to pass the time. It’s wicked hard though! I hate waiting for DH to decide he’s ready to start TTC. *Sigh

I know how you feel- when baby fever hits, it usually hits pretty hard! As for getting a puppy- remember that it’s a huge commitment and shouldn’t be seen as a ‘substitute’ for a baby. You’ll still have your dog when you get pregnant and have children, so make sure you truly want a dog and are prepared to care for it for the next 10-16 years! I see people give their dogs away when they have kids and that is completely unfair to the dog. Remember that getting a puppy needs to be about so much more than “oh, so cute!” since they aren’t puppies for long!
