I have moments and spurts of baby fever, but it hasn’t lasted for an extended period of time. The mister loves kids, but we both agree that we’re not ready for them yet. Maybe someday!

I definitely have a mean case of baby fever!!  If I wasn’t so adamant on us being married before we have kids I’d try right now.  Our place is only a one bedroom though and I really want to be married before we have kids.  As soon as it’s official we’re moving into a bigger place and we’re going to start trying.  He’s really excited to have kids too so I’m very lucky!!  🙂  I can’t wait to raise a family with my Fiance.  He’s going to be a GREAT dad!!

I feel both ways – I want a baby now but know we need to wait at least a year or two.  We dont have the means to support a baby right now which is why we are waiting but we cant wait to have kids!

Fiance is oldest of 5 kids and I have always nannied on the side, we both LOVE kids and want a big family.  We both have baby fever for sure, BUT we want to be out of debt and for me to be a stay-at-home mom, so we need about 2 more years to make it happen.  I’ll be turning 28 just 2 months after the wedding, if I could get pregnant before 30 that would be AWESOME!!

I can understand with couples that are older han the norm or are having difficulty conceiving being occupied with babies but as someone who has been there and done that I usually recommemd waiting a bit IF my opinion was sought. Otherwise I keep my mouth shut about such matters.

Babies change your life, no doubt about it. I sometimes get the impression that to SOME couples having a baby is regarded much like getting a new puppy, with little comprehension of the tremendous amount of work involved or the changes to lifestyle. Why not spend a little time enjoying life as a couple before complicating things?

Excellent point @bluespurrs! We have been married a month now and I always thought and talked about starting to “try” next fall, after the 1 yr mark but I am changing my mind but not sure how far I can postpone. I have some medical conditions that might make it much more harder the longer I wait and basically my OBGYN said not to go past 35 for me. I am 29 1/2 now. But after enjoying married life and we are currently building a house and I am in school for the next 18-24 mths, I am worried that trying to conceive in a years time is too much pressure on us. Yes we have been togethor 3 years now, but being married is different, no matter what they say. I want to be settled in our home which is going to take some time and I dont know how well I would handle being pregnant while in school and well we are really just enjoying this time. We will see. I go see my OB in about a month and I will talk to her about how long I can technically wait. So yes while I have baby fever at times, my reality sets in and I think about the consequences.

  I flip flop back and forth. Mr. S will definately be a great father so that makes it appealing to imagine him with OUR children. He doesn’t want to be “old” when the kids are older, he is afraid he won’t be able to go play with them when they are older (his dad was older and wasn’t able). We have discussed being married 2 years, or waiting till we are 28 to start trying, or waiting till we have a house and are a little more settled. Mr. S keeps mentioning trying when we are 27 or after a year of marriage (26!). I am however looking forward to a little time just enjoying being married. There is a part of me though that would like to start a family immediately. I work with infants so I get to play with other people’s babies which is nice to have that outlet but with the ones with a great temperment I could just take them home!!! 🙂

We were talking about this again last night. It’s definitely on both of our minds. We both want to enjoy each others company for awhile but we both really want a baby. We are just ready for that stage in our life. So I think the plan now is to stop preventing it in December when he turns 40 and just see what happens. If it happens right away, great. If not, we’ll have fun practicing for awhile.

I’ve been married all of 9 days. Before we were hitched, I was all, “we’ll let it just happen, take our time and not rush ourselves”… Now? OBSESSED. The mister isn’t ready, and I don’t want him to feel pressured, I want him to want it as much as I do. 

I know part of it is the whole nesting thing, but seriously, I need to cool down on it a little.

Anyone else have a hubs who isn’t quite there with you?

Haha. Well I have been married now for 24 days!!! And I have to say, I do not have the baby fever. LOL

I’m 20, turning 21 in 3 months, my husband is 22.  We are in school, and working.  We are just enjoying this time we have with just the two of us.  The silence and what not.  We can’t wait to build our family, but we don’t want to rush into anything just yet.  Don’t get me wrong children are going to be wonderful..in the future. We are doing the Newly Wed thing for right now. Tongue out
