Come spend an hour in my house with my 4 kids (including an almost 2 yo who is potty training).  You’ll need that year to recover!

@BanditGirl: LOL! 

@Treasure43: I was going to suggest you spend time with a friend or relatives baby!  But you are already a Nanny, but isn’t it nice to get a full night sleep now to rest up for your own?? 🙂  This year will go by fast, and you’ll be thankful for it when your bank accounts show bigger numbers and you will be able to be a full-time mommy.

@Treasure43: 

I do not have any suggestions but I am in the exact same boat (minus the nanny job) and I have baby fever like CRAZY! Good luck!

I feel you girl.  One of the biggest differences of opinion between Fiance and I right now is I want to start trying immediately after the wedding (well, I’d LOVE to start trying NOW, actually) and he wants to wait until we get into a house.  We’ve got to save for at least 6 months after the wedding before we even start LOOKING for a house though, and I just turned 33 and am consequently going deaf from the volume of my biological clock ticking away.

I’ve got just under 3 months to wear him down…  😉

@Treasure43: i’ve got the fever & i’m a nanny, too! we are going to ttc around the wedding. once we’re pregnant, we have plans for me to just work 2 half days a wk, bringing the lil one with me (benefit to being a nanny!). until then, i find planning (online window shopping, etc) & trying to turn myself into a lean, mean, baby makin machine helps to pass the time.

I can completely understand the anxious part of wanting to start trying! But in the meantime, you should do everything you can to prepare yourself. Just consider the next year as PART of the “trying to conceive” process. I’m trying to do this- making sure I take my pre-natals EVERY SINGLE DAY. I’m starting a regular workout schedule that I can maintain, and I’m trying to switch to the healthiest foods possible. I know it’s easy to say that I’ll switch once I’m pregnant, but it will be pretty tough if I’m not sure to cooking those foods and preparing everything. (Also, drinking less coffee if you drink it a lot, or cut back on alcohol, knowing you’ll need to cut it out entirely when you’re pregnant.)

So maybe if you spend the next year getting ready as PART of the TTC process, it will make the wait a little easier!!
