My Fiance absolutely loves kids, but plays the “I’m not holding (friend’s name) baby until it’s at least 6 months old!” game as if he doesn’t want a baby. Or when I hold a friend’s baby, he screams across the room, “Don’t get too comfortable with the baby!” or something along those lines. Recently, my Fiance constantly whispers to me, “I can’t wait to have kids honey.” and has been moving up the TTC timeline. Initially, it was 2 years after we got married, then one year, and then just last week – 6 months. Don’t get me wrong, I love kids and can’t wait to have our own someday, but it seems he’s got baby fever – bad!! More so than me and I’m the girl! haha! Does anyone else’s SO have baby fever more than themselves??

Hmmm… Not more than me by a long shot but it is starting to amp up. He actually initiated a conversation about them, which is a first, but that’s about it. Do you like the idea of moving up the timeline or would you rather keep it to two years?

He has gone absolutely baby crazy and I’m not even sure if I want kids. It’s the most bizarre thing; he wants to have one now.

Until recently, he wanted them more than me! In fact, before I met my hubby I never even wanted to have children! Now both of us are excited to have a baby!! We have just started semi-trying a few weeks ago. Part of us wants to save more money first, the other part is ready now. We’re just going to see what happens..I’m excited!
Do you want to change your timeline? By the way, you are getting married on our dating anniversary. Sept. 18th was the best day of my life, because we had our first date and that was the start of our awesome relationship. Good choice! 🙂

My husband has baby fever bad. I have lots of sreservations like how to pay for childcare, wanting to be out of a condo and into a house and will I ever be able to do my hobbies again especially kayaking. However, I’m not getting any younger. I’m past 35.

Ha. This reminds me of my brother. He was ready to have kids as soon as they were married and my SIL wanted to focus on her career and get some use out of her Masters first. They ended up waiting about 4 years. They are in total agreement on how many to have though…. lots. Well 2 so far and shooting for 3 maybe 4.

haha I’d give it some time. Fiance and I can’t get on the same page. First he wanted kids and i didn’t. Then I wanted kids and he didn’t. Now he says maybe and I say I don’t know. 🙂 I figure there will be approx 2 hrs at some point where we both happen to want kids at the same time and that’ll be the night!

@caitlanc & @ jenn23– I don’t mind moving up the timeline, but with us owning our own business, I think it would be difficult to juggle a newborn and running the shop. It might work but, who knows!
@jilian – looks like your brother will have a basketball team soon! I bet you spoil them rotten!
@corgitales – LMAO! That’s soo funny! We’ll keep an eye out for you on the boards to see when that “magical” moment happens!

I want children…badly
And I think my overwhelming desire is backed by the fear that I may not be able to have any. I dont have any proof of this other than the fact that the Fiance and I haven’t been not trying to, but not necessarily trying for over a year and still nothing. I am sure when the time is right, I will conceive. The Fiance likes to pretend he doesnt want kids, but when we get alone, he wants to name them. Once we got our pictures taken and then the photobooth showed us what our daughter would look like, He kept that picture for years and even named it. So I know he’s got it bad like me.

We have a daughter, Brooklyn, who is two. She is a pain… the terrible two’s don’t even describe my daughter. Although I love her very much I’m positive that I don’t want any more children until she starts pre-k. My husband, on the other hand, wants one now. We are already living paycheck to paycheck and it just really doesn’t make sense. I think I talked him out of it but every once in a while I still get the whole “maybe you don’t have to take your birth control this month, just to see what happens”. Uh yeah… I know what happens, thanks.

We both want children soon, but I want them NOW but we’re still students…and he needs a job before we start. Not to mention, we want to be married!
