@SpecialSundae:  Erm I can only recommend spending some time with some badly behaved todlers… Otherwise, TTC is the only known cure for feeling broody! 

Good Luck!

I’ve got a LEAST a year to wait.  And I’m now 31.  Blech.  I have a few things that have helped.  I went off the pill almost a year ago and I’m charting, so I know my innards are working.  Yay!  Comfort!  It’s also a little fun to think that maybe we could have an oops (but we’re still really careful — especially me.  At this point my husband would be suspicious of any accidents.)

The other thing that helps is treating myself to lots of good beer and wine while I still can, and really appreciating all the other things that won’t be the same when we have kids — we’ve been together so long without kids, it’s sad to think of how much might change. 

But I hear you on the physical thing.  I’ve got one tingly uterus!

We agreed to wait a year after getting married before TTC, but after about 6 months, I started getting the urge. I shared that with my husband and he told me in no uncertain terms that the timing is up to me (I never knew that). After we went through the thought/planning process, we determined the most logical time to start TTC is the new year (which is actually a little longer than a year after our first anniversary). The good thing was we are now significantly more prepared because I did the research early.

So the way I moved past being “broody” was by talking about it with my husband, sharing the excitement, and actively planning/preparing to TTC.

Best of luck!

@SpecialSundae:  Hey, drive a few hours and you can come borrow my almost 6-month old. 🙂 She’s a little, teething monster right now. Should cure it real quick. lol

@Mrs.Jansen:  I would have guessed like…anger, or anxiousness, just because that’s what it sounds like. Hahaha

@ChuckNorris:  Haha I think it’s more of a UK term (even though I’m Canadian), as in “brooding” 🙂

Here’s the definition I found:

brood·ing/ˈbro͞odiNG/

Adjective:

  1. Showing deep unhappiness of thought.
  2. Appearing darkly menacing.

 
Lol for some reason I picture it used in a Jane Austen novel as in “he was brooding” 😛

@HopefulPanda:  I think more Emily Bronte — brooding storms and wuthering wind and such.
