@Sunnyday278:  Great advice πŸ™‚
I can be so indecisive sometimes, that at times I do hope the decision will be made for me-lol. Fiance has firmly said that if I was to get preggo on the pill, then we should keep it, so I think he has kinda made that decision for me. I guess one just has to have faith that you can make it work. Im glad you and your Fiance are on track in every way before TTC πŸ™‚ Exciting times!

@katiecat08:  OMG you just described my life. I grew up with a brother and a sister too. Fiance isn’t an only child but he just has one sister. I sometimes have crazy baby fever, especially since getting engaged!!

I am also! Two of our friends are having babies in the next month and I am so excited. We get married in 4 months and are going to be TTC right then – so it is super exciting to be planning a wedding and thinking of POTENTIALLY having a baby next year too.

I am only 25 (turn 26 this summer) and just got married to my DH, but occassionally I have baby fever. Even though we have been together for 10 1/2 years, we are definitely not going to TTC until after I turn 30. But there are moments where I think, “oh, why not try now?” Then the reality of cost, time and stress comes in, and I change my mind. We are about to buy a house and that will deplete our cash reserves, and we want to travel more, so baby fever will have to take a back seat for now.

Omgosh YES!! Fiance and I talk about it a lot and my family knows that we aren’t going to wait very long after we are married to start trying. We already have names we love and we talk about plans too. Fiance best man and his wife just had their baby on January 1st. we were in the elevator in the hospital and Fiance said, “I have baby fever. I want to have a baby.” I freaked. YESSSS!! We’ve decided we are going to start TTC in July. 4 months after we get married. I am 23 and Fiance is 25. Yay babies!!!

@katiecat08:  I always said i wanted 3 too. But ever since having my son and truly seeing how much hard work it can be, I say see how you go with your first πŸ™‚ I absolutely love my boy and still would like 3, but weve settled on having one more. Having a child is amazing, but it’s so much harder than anyone could imagine who doesn’t have a child. Not trying to discourage you, as i think having a child is the best thing i have done πŸ™‚ just being realistic.

As totally bizarre and crazy as it sounds, neither Fiance or myself want kids, but I have hardcore baby fever. Sometimes when I see cute little babies I just look at Fiance and he just deadpans “….no.”

 

It’s a weird feeling.

Oh man I was so slow with the baby fever. DH was ready to start trying before I was. I had always thought I would wait until 33 but BAM! this last summer baby fever hit me hard and we started trying right after.

We are expecting our first child in August. The fever quickly turns to fear and borderline panic. πŸ˜‰

I do, and then I realize what a HUGE financial (among other things) responsibility children are, and…then the baby fever subsides.

Of course, as of right now, my plan is to TTC in about 4 years…maybe by then I’ll be “ready”…

@katiecat08:  Total baby fever over here πŸ˜‰ I can’t wait! I think about it alllll the time! Friends of ours have started having children and I have a couple of MUCH younger siblings and I love seeing my Fiance with them, he’s amazing with kids and they love him. Can’t wait to see him as a Dad, and me as a Mum!

SO baby crazy. Every time I look at my foxy fiance. It is so exciting to watch him be a dad to our pups and I look forward to watching him continue to be an amazing dad for our little human  pups!

Fiance and I are definitely excited for our future children! We don’t get married until December and don’t plan on trying right away but when the time does come to have kids, we are going to be more than ready! We have all kinds of coversations about what we would do in a particular situation or how we want to embarass our kids in front of their friends Tongue Out

@katiecat08:  I get baby fever sometimes too. But then I think about how much I like my life now and how difficult different things will be when I have a baby. They’re not all rainbows and butterflies!

@chronicwhimsy:  I love Call The Midwife too! Sister Julienne is my fave character,  I swear she’s the most beautiful woman ever.

As to the topic, hells to the ya! I have baby fever even though my DD just turned one. I wasn’t even sure I wanted kids until I got oopsie KU 2 months before our wedding. I loved being pregnant and having our baby.  We may or may not actually ttc this time and I cant wait!

Yes, horribly!

But as  @Sunnyday278: said, I always consider the poop! And the lack of sleep. And all the rest of it.

Right now I have an exact month in my mind (I’m a planner!) that will probably totally change. It is THREE years away, but I have already began my secret Pinterest board! Then again, our engagement is two years long, so we take awhile to prepare for things anyway. 

Babies are just lots of fun to think about and plan for!
