We’re just recently married (July) and having kids is definitely something I think about a lot.  We aren’t planning on trying for about 4 years though because I have two more years of graduate school and we want to have a house, etc before we have our first child.  

I’m trying to find some new hobbies so that I will be too busy to think about babies…

Spend the afternoon with a 2 year old? Lol! Sometimes when I get baby brain, I go shopping and see all the out of control kids. That pretty much gets rid of it for me. Haha! I’m almost 25 too and we want to wait another 3-4 years too. It’s hard sometimes though, especially for us ladies. Sometimes I see a baby and I can almost feel my body telling me that it’s in its baby making prime. I just try to focus on my pre-baby goals, like saving to go to Europe 🙂

LOL, I think you are referring to Baby Rabies! Baby Brain is what you get when you’re actually pregnant…and forget what things are called, where you were going, and what you are supposed to be doing at work! 🙂

@FreeRangeMom:haha!

I tell FH incase I forget, we are not having kids for atleast 10 years if ever. But everytime I see a cute baby or a really cute preggo chick I think awww but then back to reality!

I want kids too (but we want to be married a while first).  It seems every time I start thinking babies, we witness some out of control child at dinner or in the mall, and that does it for me. 

I used to volunteer helping young children (Children’s museum, Women’s center, etc).  Also, best form of birth control.  After spending 3 hours with zillions of wild children, its just not appealing anymore.

Agree with MissChirpie! You can babysit my 16 month old for a day… Your baby fever will go away in about 5 seconds!

I’ve been experiencing this too! We ducked into Toys R Us yesterday to use the bathroom, and DH wanted to look at all the baby stuff, and I was like, “No! We can’t let ourselves!” And now I am waiting for my period and I keep thinking, What if I’m pregnant? I know it would not be very good timing in terms of our finances, and I honestly am so enjoying being married that I would be sad to transition from a couple to a family so soon. But I think about it a lot!

I am a nanny, and while my boss was pregnant with her third boy, it was really exciting to see all the changes and the growing belly, so I was thinking a lot about when I get pregnant. So I think I got “baby rabies” a little bit. But then the baby was born and it was like she didn’t get any sleep for 2 months! And now my “baby rabies” is gone. Haha.

Plus I watch her 2 year old and almost 4 year old sons, and they are active & tiring little boys (though I love ’em)! And that’s what cute little sleeping babies turn in to. So I’m definitely good to wait. 🙂

For me, being a nanny helps me because I know when I have kids, I won’t be going into it completely blind (I never was around babies before). It also brings up parenting conversations with FH & I, like “what would you do in that situation,” so we know we’re kind of on the same page.
