I do want a baby, but I know at least finance wise we are not ready for one.  And probably a bit emotionally as well.  I think we want to enjoy our married life for a bit before having a baby.  That said, I really want to try a year a from now and Darling Husband is saying 1.5 years from now.  I just cant convince him that while we may start trying 6 months earlier than he wants, it could take 6+ months for me to get pregnant!

I’m so ready to start trying. But we are waiting about 6 more months. I’m trying to get my body in optimal baby shape-shedding some pounds, eating healthier, taking prenatal vitamins, etc.

I wish we were financially secure and could have a baby right now, but I am just getting back to work after 6 months of unemployment. I don’t see myself having a baby for maybe another 2 or 3 years. Two of my cousins recently got pregnant, and I do have a little envy πŸ™

I think I’m an out of sight, out of mind kind of girl.  I’m only really jealous when I get to see and hold my friends’ babies.  Most of the time I’m not really thinking about it.  But as soon as I see a baby, I want one so bad!  πŸ™‚

I’m right there with ya and I’m not even married yet! Plus, the timeline we’ve discussed and agreed apon does not involve baby-making until summer 2012…Soooo long but I feel a little jealous when I hear about people who are pregnant too…I”m sorry! Not much advice to give but you’re definetly not alone!

I don’t really have any advice, but I feel your pain, and we’re still 4.5 months away from the wedding! We just filled out our natural family planning class paperwork and one of the questions asked about when you would like your next pregnancy to occur. I chose 1-2 years from now… Fiance chose 2-3 years :(. I know he’s right, we would be more financially stable and probably homeowners by then, but still… I would rather have a baby lol!

I’m not baby crazy for myself, but I AM niece/nephew crazy. I’m halfway tempted to throw my sisters a “let’s get it on” lingerie shower. I’m not sure they would be opposed to it either. lol

We are baby crazy but have been unlucky till now… its becoming so difficult to cope up with it every month esp emotionally.

My friend at work got married in May and will be having her honeymoon baby next month.  Going through all of this with her (I see HER more than FI!) has given me TOTAL baby envy.  Poor Fiance has to listen to me rattle on and on.  When we got engaged we decided on a 3-5 yr plan (my closer to 3, him 5) but now I’m hoping to bump it up to 2-4 so we would start trying fr a baby in about a yr or so.

I understand the ‘baby crazy’ πŸ™‚  I think I’ve been that way since I was 10.  The only thing I’ve ever wanted to be when I grow up is a MOM πŸ™‚  We knew we wanted to wait a bit when we got married – settle into life.  Then we planned our big pre-responsibility trip (kinda almost a second honeymoon) to Thailand.  So we had the plan of ‘when’ we’d start trying.  Friends all around us were popping up pregnant and for the most part I was ok… but the closer we got to that ‘trying’ period the more I was like “Ok, now that were ready.  I WANT THE BABY NOW!”  I was getting a little envious of our friends that were popping them out.  I didn’t want to wait through the trying and the 9 months!  ha πŸ™‚  My body had some issues coming off the BC and regulating and I didn’t freak out too much.  The doc diagnosed me with PCOS but I denied any treatment right away saying I want to keep trying naturally for another 6 mos.  And bam.  Miracle πŸ™‚

I’ll be 32 and my hubby will be 35 when our first little one arrives.  I’ll be honest and say I’d always imaginged being a young 25 year old mom – but ya know… life works out the way it does for a reason.  I would not change a single thing about my 20’s and 30’s (so far).  I know this timing is perfect for me and for us!

wait until you start trying and all of your friends announce their pregnancies  – THAT is hard too!!  although hopefully you all will get knocked up right away once you start trying πŸ™‚
