I want to have a baby!
We have to wait until after the wedding before we TTC. But it seems like everyone is having babies and getting pregnant! One of my co-worker’s wife had a baby last year, another just announced today his wife is pregant. Our best-man’s wife is pregnant and due in about a month. Another one of our groomsmen and his wife are trying to get pregnant.
I know things should come in order, and I can’t even imagine planning (and paying for) for a wedding and a baby at the same time. Not to mention I actually want to fit into my wedding dress.
But at the same time I’m so impatient and can’t wait until we can TTC!
Anybody else feel that way?

I’m not even that old (22 and I still want to start grad school) and for about a month I felt this way. Everyone I know is pregnant or just had a baby for some reason (most of these are people who talked me about how they wanted to wait like I did). And I saw a story the other day about how the national birth rate has been lower than normal which I just don’t believe based off of everyone I know.

I am DEFINITELY feeling this way!!! I want to TTC now!!!! lol! FH wants kids too but he thinks we should wait a year after we are married. I told him I had to wait 3 years for him to propose, 2 years to marry him, and I don’t want to wait a year to have a baby!!! lol I am way to impatient!!!

Been like that for about three months solid… Finally have a timeframe, though, so it’s a little easier to not lose it. Also, I keep going to the Cheezburger site, Tots and Giggles. Heehee.

Yep, I’ve been there since about July/August of last year lol. We’re trying to wait until we finish school though. We’re just way too busy to add a baby into the mix!

I feel like I go through cycles of baby fever, and it could be true based on different hormones at different times of the month…I don’t know, I’ve never researched to see if that is true or not.
Sometimes I can’t wait to have a baby and I want to start TTC a month or two before we’re married, nobody would tell in the dress anyways is how I rationalize to myself at that time! Other times I feel like waiting a year or two, not because I don’t want a baby at those times just because I’m feeling more logical…we could save up more money (I want to work part time when I have kids), buy a house, adjust to married life.

- Wedding: May 2010 - Plantation Bay Country Club
I go through cycles of baby fever too! One week I’m OBSESSED and the next week I’m so happy we don’t have kids… which is a sign that I’m totally not ready! But I totally understand how you feel… heck.. I even already have a CRIB (long story… worked at baby store one summer… okay short story).
But, we just got married are getting accustomed to me working (just graduated from grad school) and want to save to have a house. I think as soon as we have a house, that will be the time if feels right for both of us.

There is a part of me that wants kids right now, but there is another (larger) part of me that really doesn’t want to lose my freedom just yet! I want to enjoy married life a bit, travel a little more, find a job in my field, and buy a house first. If all goes as we hope, we’ll be TTC in two years, and we’ll be 29 when we have our first. We’ll see!

I can definatly relate to this thread…I’m only 19 and have had “baby fever” for a year…yes I’m very young and we’re going to wait to TTC until after the wedding but unfortunatly baby-mode has struck me a little too early. I really wanted a baby but there wasn’t too much of an erge until I ended up having a “false pregnancy” earlier this year (If anyone is wondernig what it is, just PM me, too complicated and Too Much Information to type on here) and coincidently my best friend got pregnant at the exact same time, not to meantion I have 6 cousin, 4 friends, and 6 wifes of guys that I know all pregnant/having babies this month so needles too say I’m feeling like the odd one out 🙁 I should also admit, that the old ladies in my family are starting to pressure me into having kids now by saying “you’re next” and asking a ton of questions, this isn’t right I know but unfortunatly it’s the way it is right now….
Ah it feels good to vent 🙂

Oh my gosh, my baby fever is driving me nuts!!! It just really started in the last couple months, as we have started planning our wedding. However, I just can’t stop thinking about TTC after the wedding. My Fiance and I have talked about starting shortly after we are married which is super! However, 10 months from now seems very far away! I’m watching A Baby Story on TLC right now and can’t stop tearing up!!
So yes, I’m with you on this one!!

Baby fever comes and goes in cycles for me too! Earlier this year, I had my benefits re-enrollment at my office (for health insurance) and I started thinking about what plan I should be on when I have a baby, etc etc, and boy, did I get baby fever. It subsided a bit, and then earlier this summer (May?), I was baby crazy again! The hubby and I had a long talk, and he wasn’t quite ready, so I decided to stop googling baby stuff and reading baby blogs like crazy. It DEFINITELY subsided a bit when I stopped obsessing about it.
Hubby and I have talked about when we’d like to start trying (early next year- Jan/Feb/March), and we also have a ski trip planned over the winter. My plan is to go on the ski trip and THEN start trying when we get back, so I can fully enjoy the trip!
My baby fever is starting to creep back in. But I realized I was getting a bit obsessive about it and constantly thinking/reading about it. So now I’m just trying to enjoy these last few months baby free, while still thinking about the future!

My baby rabies comes and goes in cycles, too! Right after the wedding, I wanted a baby SO BADLY… and then it went away. Learning that my bestie/MOH was pregnant a few months after our wedding helped. 🙂 Then I was fine until… a few weeks before our 1st anniversary. We went on our belated honeymoon, and all i could think about while we were there was talking about TTC when we got home. Needless to say, all that did was start a fight that didn’t need to be a fight. After spending the majority of my weekend with my 18 month old niece… what baby fever?? 🙂

LOL @ baby rabies! priceless.
For me the biological clock ticking comes in cyclyes, usually when I am ovulating I tend to be more insaneirrationalfeverish for progeny.
Though, when the smoke clears and I can think clearly again, I can rationalize that no, I do not actually have timeresourcesspace for another addition to the family (school, extensive home renovations, & the fact that we own a 2 bedroom home)– it can be hard to rationalize an instinctual urge to reproduce, but at the same time, I know we will be better prepared an equipped in a few years (after the wedding, after the house is finished & perhaps sold, etc).
I feel you though, the past week or so I have been a woman possesed. Though I can already feel the crazies subsiding–which is a good thing haha.

I’M 35 and I always have baby fever. I’m just waiting till were closer to the wedding to start trying because I want to fit in my dress. Life will always get in the way of having a baby, so don’t let the timing get in the way.

I am 31 and my Fiance is 33 and we talk about kids constantly! Ive had baby fever for about a year and I think he has been bitten by the bug too. Thankfully this wedding has given me something else to think about for a bit.
