You’re only 23! You have so much time. I know its hard to wait… but you’ll be glad you did 🙂

Well, it seems to me like most of the women having babies are older than 23 =]. So I always remind myself that they ARE further along in their lives and that it gives you something to look forward to. It’s a natural tendency, it’s just something that comes with time and accomplishing the things you want in life first.

Babies are so cute and squishy and pokey (excpet when they cry) and the baby boards had me thinking last night.

Then i went to microbio lab and the 18 year old in the back was at least 6 months along. This girl was YOUNG.

Kinda snapped me back to reality.

Don’t worry—it’s not a competition, and you still have a ton of time to enjoy that phase of your life. But for now, enjoy the phase you’re in, because it’s a pretty great one too!

It definitely makes sense. I never really thought that I would be the mother who would have to work full time with small children either, but things don’t always work out the way we want them to. If it helps you at all, I’m 29, and we still haven’t started trying yet. You definitely have plenty of time! Get yourself situated with your carreer first. I find that when you’re settled somewhere, they are much more flexible with your schedule around kids and giving you time off with them.

I know this might get some unpopular responses,but to be honest I am starting to dislike the baby posts (not the posters and not that they aren’t important). I have 2 kids and get so distracted by the baby posts. I know this is completely my issue and now many of you are saying then quite ready them, but who can avoid a talking about babies.  I find that I am not getting as much wedding stuff done because I am on the baby board.

i would also like it if there was a filter on the main page – i like using the main board so that i can see all of the new posts in each section, vs having to stay in a few sections to reply to new posts.  If we could filter that’d be wonderful, since i have no interest in babies.

This was my one worry with a baby board.  When we just had a thread, I kept asking people if they were ok with it, and the response seemed overwhelmingly positive.  Things are set up now so that people can click on Wedding related and only see those posts and ignore non-Wedding related as had been requested before the baby board even existed…  It was a way to filter content so that people who were only interested in the “Wedding related” content could click that board and never have to see the “NWR” posts.

I’m sorry if it is distressing to anyone.  If you have any ideas that might help relieve that distress, will you share them?  Is there a reason that the people who don’t like the baby posts aren’t using the tabs to filter them?

@Mrs. DG – Does Weddingbee have plans to branch out into something like Babybee?

I don’t believe there are any plans to do so at this time.

I personally really like the baby boards. I am also surprised so many people dislike them even appearing! There was a lot  when I was planning my wedding that didn’t relate to me  on the main boards – so I just didn’t read the ones I wasn’t interested in.

That said, if so many people are really bothered by it, can the baby posts just be removed from the main view so only those that click on the baby or Not Wedding Related boards see them?

Also for those of you who do love WB, and do want kids eventually, when that time comes you will be so happy the baby board is  here waiting for you – because there is honestly nothing great out there!!

I like ’em. I think they’re cute =]. But, i’m already married, and I agree that I may have found them distracting if it was far removed from my mind. As it is now, 18 months away isn’t really *that* far off that I don’t think about it occassionally. Mostly cuz i hate surprises =]
