I am 100 days from the wedding to the love of my life. Dear friends of ours just had a beautiful baby girl about 3 weeks ago and seeing her sweet little baby all dressed in bows and pink is making my ovaries go on overdrive.
Fiance and I are planning kids but obviously not right now. Plus, we both carry a rare recessive blood disorder which makes IVF a much better option for conception. I’m just feeling overwhemingly strong desires for babies right now. Please help me feel like this is normal.
I should also add that my poor Fiance has been on medical leave for almost a year due to neck, back, and shoulder surgeries. It ended up being best that I took a medical leave of absesce from my job as well to cope with my own medical problems and to help him recouperate. So I do kind of feel like I have been doing the “mommy” thing for a while now. Now~I love Fiance and would have taken care of him in a heartbeat even if I still had to work, but it has been very challenging emotionally at least for me. We’ve got the whole “in sickness and in health” part of the vows down pat.
I guess I’m just feeling like I’m overwhelming my Fiance with my baby broodings since I know he is still not feeling back to 100% yet. We’ve talked extensively and are thinking of TTC about 6-7 months into the marriage providing I’m healthy. I guess I’m just feeling the tug on my ovaries after being around our friends’ adorable sweet baby gril.
Any body finding themselves in similar situations?

Oh yes! I’ve never felt this way until the past few weeks. I see pictures of new babies and I just can’t wait! Fiance and I are waiting like a year and a half post wedding, so I have a while.

Girl I have 3 girls and want another one!!! I think its natural. I have had baby fever since like 2008 and it is not going away. We are done( 1 together) and I will have to just get over it:/ But yes it is totally natural!:)

I’ve felt the exact same way ever since the wedding. Darling Husband and I were originally going to wait several years after the wedding to give ourselves “us” time, but we had a heart-to-heart and decided to TTC this fall. It’s like a switch flipped, and after the wedding I just said to myself, “ok, time for babies!!”

I know how you feel! Especially since I’m one of the last people who went to my high school to have kids. (but I’m one of the first that got married!) Some days I see adorable little babies and I’m like “I want one so bad!!” Then other days I hear a kid screaming in a store and I’m like “I never want children”. Which is why we’ve decided to wait, too. I’m only 25, he’s 23, we have a lot of time.
But yeah, it’s normal.

It’s so incredibly hard not to feel the ovary tug when you’re around all that cuteness. My Fiance and I recently babysit for some couple friends of ours. Due to some financial issues they had to move in with his mother who is totally manipulative and it’s been a nightmare for them. I mean who wouldn’t hate moving back in with their parents after being married for 2 years and having a small child? It’s hard to be an adult and then start living with a woman who insists on treating them both like children.
Anyway they need some alone time so we pulled our money together for a nice hotel suite and sent them out on the town while we watched the little one overnight.
She was just too precious for words. I have always loved kids but I’ve never been so taken by a little baby before. We spent hours laying in the floor playing, helping her walk, and basically just hanging on every little thing she did.
I use to say babysitting was great birth control lol but this little girl just shattered all of that.
