I have crazy baby fever lately. Which sucks because we’re just not in any position to have a baby right now. We live in a 1 bedroom condo and I’m still in nursing school.
BUT, next year I graduate nursing school in May, we get married in August and we’re hoping to buy a house or condo before the wedding. So I’m hoping we can start trying sometime after the wedding 🙂
P.S.- I just turned 25, my Fiance is 27 and will be 28 in March. I didn’t start feeling this way until a few months ago.

When Fiance and I marry in June I’ll be 24 and he’ll be 25. While at times I really want to have a baby as soon as we can, I sit back and think of the responsilibty and the financial part of it and then I don’t want kids for another 5 years. Luckily, I feel as though I have plenty of time and I just want to enjoy my husband for 3 or 4 years, get a house, get a chunk of my school loans paid off and then maybe get ready to have my life totally change. But I do want children 100%, juuuuuust not quite yet!

I have total babies rabies!
Me and Fi have been togetheer for 4 years(all through college) have been living together for 1yr and are getting married in May, right after our college graduation. We both have awesome job offers for the same ciy, so we will be moving a couple of weeks after the wedding.
Ideally we would like to wait a around 3 years, to get settled in our new city, further our careers and travel a little w/o babies. Realistically I don’t think we will be able to wait that long! We both have total baby fever since this summer and can’t wait to start a family together!

I am baby crazy in a bad, bad way. We bought a new, beautiful house and are doing amazingly well with our careers. It is so difficult to wait when we we are so financially and emotionally ready right NOW! FI’s catholic grandparents would be so disapointed, and so would my father, if we got pregnant before we were married. After the I do’s though, it is on like Donkey Kong.

I’ll be 25 and he’ll be 27. He’ll be happy having a baby anytime but I know we won’t be financially stable for years. If it happens then…yay. We’re not trying for a while though.

Not married yet and none of my friends are, but some have babies or are expecting one! Definately keep thinking about having one, but know we need to be married first! Arghhh!!
I’m 23, SO is 24.. so not exactly the youngest or immature to have them. We have a family house and good jobs, my friends don’t but had the children regardless. I just wonder why I wait and wait..
But my friend did admit to me (a mum of 2 now) that I was doing things the right way, and she would loved to have had a house and money before going ahead with it.

We dont want them ever and actually terminated an unwanted pregnancy last year.
I am 27 he is 31.
We plan to travel, retire early overseas, pay off our mortgage in 15 years instead of 30, and generally selfishly enjoy one another without having to share.
He and I work REALLY well without children, and I think children would ruin our relationship and make us both really unhappy/tired/stressed.
I for one dont want to be a slave to some tiny little person.
If we could comfortably survive on one income so one person could work and the other could do the house hold chores, while still being able to afford to travel and pay off the mortgage quickly and also potentially retire at 50 like we want to, we would probably consider it, but at the moment in Australia its just not possible.

i have a wave of baby fever now and again. i’ll by just a few days shy of 25 when we’re married in august. but i work with kids everyday and that’s a great birth control for me right now 🙂 i definitely would like to start a family in the next 5 years.

We plan on waiting a couple of years before we have children, just so we can enjoy spending some time together as the 2 of us. But I do have to stay, we talk about casually about babies ALL THE TIME. “You better not do that to our children”, “Is he/she going to get this quality of yours?”…it’s kind of strange to me that we talk about it so much when we’re not planning on trying for a while. Ha.

I definitely go through phases where I really, really want a baby. I’m in that phase now. I jokingly said that I wanted one the other night for Christmas. Honestly though, we are nowhere ready to being financial stable to have a baby. 🙁 I want to make sure we both have our feet on solid ground at least.
ETA: I am 23 and Fiance is 28.

I am 27, with Fiance @ 29. I do not have baby lust and have never wanted children. Fiance and I compromised and will have 1 child.

Absolutely! We’ve been married for 4 months and I am 22, DH will be 23 next month. We’ve been talking about TTC a lot lately and the plan for now is for me to get off BC in February and then start TTC next summer.
@katiesee: I’m a pre-k teacher, so I feel you on the “kids being birth control” thing. But, apparently for me, its gone the other direction now. haha

Right after the wedding I reaaaaaaly wanted a baby. But for the past 2 months or so, I REALLY don’t want one! Haha. I’m just not ready to have to take care of someone 24/7.
