@honie309:  I joined wedding bee when I got engaged, for wedding stuff. Then I kept seeing post after post from the Nesting boards popping up on the main boards page and i started lurking. Suddenly we’re off BC and “not trying, not preventing”. Five months later, pregnant. Unfortunately I had a miscarriage, but it’s insane how much WB influenced me to start trying much earlier than I had planned! And made me obsessed over it!! We’re now going to try to avoid getting pregnant until after the wedding but we’ll see how that goes!

This is really weird, but reading about cloth diapers makes me kind of excited about babies. Who the hell gets excited about diapers?! Well, I do apparently. I started researching them and I’m totally interested in them. So now I want a baby so I can try them out haha. Not to mention, they’re super cute! So in a way WeddingBee did this because I first heard about cloth diapers on here

Nope, not even a little bit.  I’ve never wanted kids though.

Yes, actually. I can pinpoint the exact thread that got me thinking a lot of very deep and personal thoughts. The discussion prompted me to challenge many of my own assumptions and conclusions, which in turn opened me up to a different way of thinking. And then a few weeks later I had a personal experience that threw me through a loop, and I came out the other side with an entirely re-arranged set of priorities and a lot of insight about myself. I went from a mindset of “one and done” to “more is better”, and now I am waiting to see if Mr. LK can get on board with my new priorities.

@IzzyBear:  I was literally about to write the same thing.  I totally Googled cloth diapers this morning after ready baby-related threads on the Bee, even though my FI and I don’t want to TTC for another 5-7 years, if at all.

I adamantly do not want to have a baby right now, but yes sometimes WB gives me a bit of baby-fever.

Between WB and working in an infant room (7 babies aged 6 weeks to 6 months), I had MISERABLE baby fever for well over a year!

Luckily, I got a first cycle BFP!

I think it did the opposite for me. I’m more sure of my CF stance because I found so many cool CF women here Cool

Yep! I stalk the ‘Nesting’ forums pretty much every day! It’s like a disease. I’m supposed to be obsessed with getting married (which I am) but I’m even more obsessed with looking at the bump threads and feeling that twinge of envy! 


Still about 18 months away from TTC though 🙁

@honie309:  Totally… Granted I’ve always wanted kids and I am turning 29 this month so I’m definitely feeling the clock ticking. But now that our wedding is a few months away, I’m so anxious to start trying after that. But reading everyone’s posts about TTC or just pregnancy questions, it’s definitely making the wait not an easy one.

@honie309:  Yes, and I’m still not 100% I actually can handle having kids ever.  I’ve learned SO MUCH on here though, I read way more baby threads than I care to admit…

I kind of feel like it’s a sort of competetive feeling for me, though.  I’m super impatient, so reading about other people taking that step I’m kind of like “wow, I better get on it!” or something.  Or like I want to have kids to prove I can, I can’t handle waiting if someday we have trouble with conceiving, and not knowing now.  Totally a terrible reason to consider having kids, but I feel like it might influence many people…  

It really doesn’t help that I have multiple adorable pregnant friends right now, and friends with cute kids, so it seems like it is that stage of life.
