@PrncssDva- #1 We are date twins! yeah! #2 We are both on the same “baby” timeline and #3 I have HUGE baby fever.

I never wanted kids until I met Fiance and my friends starting having them. Now, I can’t wait! I would love to go off BC right after the wedding before the honeymoon and have a honeymoon baby but Fiance isn’t ready so that got nixed. Oh well 2 years will go by fast hopefully! In the mean time I’m spoiling nieces & nephews and my brother is having his first baby right before the wedding and I’m already buying things from ‘Cool Aunt Amanda’ Laughing

oy, me too! I got married June 19th and now after the wedding my hubby is talking like 10 years before ttc!!!!! We are both 21 though and i didn’t want babies right away, but the plan had been 4 to 5 years, out of college, stable jobs and bought a house, but now he wants to pay off the house before!!! AHH! ten years ago i was 11…. lol, i’m sure it will change, but i definitely have baby fever even now so it’s going to be hard either way to wait!

You are so not the only one. Our timeline is similar to yours, and even though I know waiting a bit is the best choice for us I can’t help but get the fever! I am trying to enjoy other people’s children for now to help it. 🙂

You’re definitely not the only one.  I find comfort knowing I am not alone!  I swear everywhere I go, every woman that walks past me is prego.  And I just think, “lucky”.  But we’re not ready for children.  Mentally yes, but we’re moving and looking for new jobs so a child wouldn’t work for us right now.  Ugh.

I definitely have Babies on the Brain.  We’re waiting to TTC until early next year, and I’m literally counting down my cycles.  It’s kinda ridiculous. 

We had our pre-conception counseling appointment last week, and the plan is to go off BC after a really nice island vacation.  I’ve decided to supplement the wait with getting as healthy as possible and reading as much as I can.

Good luck, and for those of you not married yet, try and focus on one awesome thing at a time 🙂

You aren’t alone!  It comes in waves.  I can’t wait until Fiance and my 2nd anniversary, we’ll TTC!  We want to have all our student loans paid off during the first two years of marriage.

We just got married and I’m going nuts as well. 

I went off BC but we are using other forms of protection. 

My ideal time would be to get start TTC after our 1 year anniversary hopefully having a baby by our second annversary. 

I keep trying to think about all the things we want/need to do prior to that.  Pay off student loans, finish school, get our careers on track, etc.  We also want to save up a good chunk of change before TTC.  We also want to fix up the house.  Basically a lot of spending and saving money which is hard to do at the same time.
