Yes! I think that it happens all of the sudden sometimes! I meant my fi a little over a year ago and we are already planning a wedding and family! Don’t freak out! Good luck!

I feel that way about getting married haha. Like one minute I’m “I hate waiting I just want to be married!” and then the next I imagine standing at an alter and signing papers and making it official and it’s a little overwhelming. Not in a bad way, but just in a….it’s a huge moment way. 

We probably won’t have kids, but actually trying to get pregannt would start getting pretty overwhelming…like imagining having a positive test would be the most shocking moment ever! Not necessarily a bad thing, but for me I don’t want a baby anytime within the next 8-10 years if that. 

I think anything that you wait for for years and years is a little overwhelming when you’re finally there since you have so much anticipation and then everything changes.

Hah, I’m in a similar boat. Except that FH has an upper cap on when he wants to stop having kids, and he’s a bit older than me, so we have to get right down to it soon! Kiss

 

…which is kinda exciting and very scary all at the same time.

Yeah, I kinda know how you’re feeling. Fiance and I are both in our late 20’s (he turns the big 3-0 in just a few months) and know we need to start trying sooner rather than later. Our goal is to start a little after our first anniversary.

Even though I really want kids, it’s slightly terrifying to think of my life changing forever in, potentially, less than two years. I feel like there are so many things I still haven’t done, that will be much more challenging once we start a family.

I was just thinking, you know when it hit me? We were talking about money and I was thinking ahead to when we might have to replace a car (if possible). I said something about just getting an “as cheap as possible” sedan. And he says “Your car is a good choice with kids.”

It’s kind of wierd to hear him talk like that, because for a long time when we were together he didn’t want kids. And to be honest, I probably want them more than he does, but the fact that he’s now on board and talking about it on his own is pretty awesome.

@atalante: Same here. Fiance says he wants to be a young father, so we made a deal to stop having kids by the time I turn 30 (he’ll be 32), let’s see.
