I definitely had it before the wedding 🙂  After the wedding, it has calmed down somewhat, since I’m enjoying being married so much!

Lol don’t get me wrong, I appreciate a cute baby here and again, but right now kids are the FURTHEST thing from what I want. I blame all the screaming kids at the bookstore I work at. But I still can’t wait to see your adorable babies!

Fiance has it big time!  I even wrote a post about it way back when he was talking about it way too much.  I admit lately though I have been feeling the bug….I know we really aren’t ready for one since we aren’t getting married for another year, but I can see myself thinking about it a lot once we get married.

Omg, I so have baby fever right now! And part of me thinks “what the heck are you thinking?! snap out of it!!” but then a whole other part is just in this frantic nesting sort of mode. I’ve had this really strong urge to redecorate and paint, and buy a bigger family house, and bake pies and loaves of bread…

I tried to start small and just redecorate the bedroom but it doesn’t satisfy this weird need I have. I’m probably going to move onto the bathroom this week and try to repaint it or something. I picked out our babies names last week and I’m searching for a pumpkin loaf recipe right now even though I’ve never baked bread before.

I think I’m really freaking out my hubby the last couple weeks. He just says “finish school, 3 more years!!” but I really don’t know if I can. We cannot afford to move right now but I already found our dream family house online last night. Part of me just wants to drive by and just go look at it. I really don’t know what is wrong with me lately. I think I’ve lost my mind.

No baby fever here! My friend just got married over the weekend and has indicated to me prior that they plan to start ‘trying’ right away. Although my Future Mother-In-Law would like us to start trying now (yes, our wedding is a year away still), I doubt we will be having children any time soon (we have 2 dogs who are pretty much our kids). I honestly think people should try and wait to have kids until a few years after they are married. Marriage is such a big thing in itself, trying to have children and add them to a new mix only complicates things. I hate to say this, but with the big D word still up at 50% or more, adding kids to that equation so soon after the wedding creates a bigger issue. Try being married for a while – once you have that solid, then try for kids (IMO).

We have plans to start trying about a year after we get married, but with his SIL being pregnant, it’s making me want to join in.  Hahahaha.  Logically, we have to wait, but I am definitely feeling it.

@hcritton That is SO me! Yesterday I was laying on the bed, doing nothing while my hubby played his psp, and I was asking him if the landlords would allow us to paint the apartment (he didn’t know), then I was quiet for awhile, just thinking, and brought up getting new curtains for the bedroom, and he’s like “why are you talking about this stuff??” I think it’s probably scaring him a bit too :p Then, while I was making rice krispie treats yesterday, I’m thinking about how it would be a great thing to make with kids. I just bought an electric hand mixer and have ideas for things I want to make. I’m thinking of new furniture we can buy to help organize the apartment a bit, my birthday wish list includes an apron, slotted spoon, and a new can opener…and it goes on and on lol. I’ve also randomly browsed houses for sale online :p I definitely have baby fever and the whole nesting thing has kicked in. It’s so WEIRD. I definitely didn’t have it before we got married, but some weird biological thing just kicks in. And I say it’s weird because marriage is a social institution, not biological, yet it still happens. I too have to finish school but I’m not sure if I can wait that long lol Though, I will say the feeling isn’t quite so strong once my hubby started talking about him going back to school as well. He’d be working and going to school, so he’d be gone about 7am-10pm, plus 9-3 on Saturdays. I’d be almost raising a baby without him, and that helps put me in check. DO NOT WANT. Both of us in school and working AND having a baby seems impossible.

I’ve definitely got the fever.  We talk about it all the time.  I can’t stop thinking about it.  I even bought a baby Cardinals jersey last week!!  Right now we’re getting our ducks in a row and we’re hoping to start trying towards the beginning of the year!  Ahhh!!!  So exciting!!!
