I’m there too. A few months ago my monthly visitor was waaaayyy late and I started freaking out. But when it showed up, I was surprisingly bummed. It’d be horrible timing right now but I still got the fever!

I know what you mean too, I’m so ready to get married and have babies. Went through that whole scare thing too a couple months ago, and was surprisingly disappointed when it was negative. I’ve never wanted someone else’s kid the way I want to make little Kelly’s. :o) But as for all of us everything will happen when the timing is right.

Maryjane- Yeah, my sister tells me I have time. She’s the only one I have told about my need to have a baby like, yesterday!LOL She’s right though.
Mrs.DG- I like that line. I wish for a mistake in my birth control sometimes, but I know it’s not the right thing. I am so excited for her and already hope it’s a girl, so I can buy cute little dresses and stuff.
Kitkat555- We have names too, although he shot down all of the ones I like.LOL. He wants 4, I want two. I wouldnt be surprised if he tried to sneak in at least 6.
Daisybride- My mom says the same thing, stop wishing your life away. LOL. I try not to, I just get excited and want it already. I’m not very patient.
Littlebear- I feel the same way. I am just like no baby until we are married, I swear I said to him on our first date,lol, but my baby mind gets the best of me sometimes.
hcritton- I dont know where this fever comes from, but I have to agree it must be something biological, with all of us suffering from it on some level.lol

Oh yeah. I know the feeling! I’m dying to get out of school and get married and move on with my life. Rationality is still stronger in the baby respect, but those biological drives are getting stronger and stronger and stronger. I burst into tears when I see wedding albums posted on FB…it’s just sad, haha. And in the past six months alone, my SO’s friends and coworkers all started to get pregnant, including his brother’s new wife, my sister, an ex-coworker, his best friend and his wife, two or three other couples from work….ugh! Frustration! It’s not like me to be jealous all the time, but my SO and I feel like we’re stuck in neutral while everyone else moves on with their lives. What makes it even suckier is that there’s an eight year age difference between us, so he’ll be well into his thirties when I’m ready to have kids.
Good things come to those who wait…right? Right?! I mean, that’s what I told myself when I got out of my last awful relationship, and as soon as I decided I was happy being single, The One shows up. That’s what I tell myself while I’m waiting for an e-ring too.
So. Flipping. Tired. Of. Waiting. GAH.

WOW, it is so interesting to see that a lot of us are really alike. My now hubby has had baby fever for a while now but I definitely wanted to wait until we were married and then it would be fair game.
I have to tell you how “right” it all feels after being married. It’s a strange feeling to know that it is OK to have sex (or make love) and definitely OK to have babies. It must be my Catholic upbringing that is creeping out, lol.
Anyway, we are both going through baby fever right now but we haven’t had the luck yet. We recently had a negative test and we were both disappointed. The only time we had a scare, I was so happy to that it came out negative. It just wasn’t the right time for me, for us.
In short, it is completely normal to feel the way you do. I wonder does any other newlywed have that “right” feeling once you became married?

PS: I have had the baby fever since our nephew was born a week before our wedding and even worse when I found out that my college ex and his wife had their first baby yesterday…. I want that to be me 🙂

Minutiae-Yep, I’m never one to get jealous either. But the baby aspect, especially with a close friend, I just went bezerk. So I’m helping it by looking at cute stuff to get the baby when the holidays come and the sales are on. I’m a bargain shopper. Hopefully she’ll know the sex by then.

Roddybride09- I totally understand the waiting til marriage part. I talked to my sister about it and admitted how I felt and she just reminded me that they aren’t married and she knows I really don’t want to have a baby that way, even though my heart is still telling me I want one,NOW. If it happened, I’d still be happy, but I know how I want things to go.
Sometimes you just have to tell your heart to shut up and go look at baby stuff to get for your friend to get some of the urge out.LOL
