    Heck Yes! I want to be preggers now!

    I want kids. But I'm not in a hurry.

    Not really. But I will probably want to eventually.

    Not planning to have kids.

    Already have children.

    We went down to see family all last week and EVERYONE has babies. Our niece is 2 years old and in such a fun stage of babyhood, and those two things combined made my ovaries explode. We need a house (and to get married) first, but man, I am antsy.

    So, here’s a bit of background info, which will lean into the topic of conversation… Fiance and I are both 22. We are finally getting married, after a three-year engagement, which was never meant to be that long, exactly one week in-between our 23rd birthdays (FI birthday is October 5th, wedding is on the 12th, my birthday is the 19th). By the time we are married, we will have spent almost eight years together, as we have been together since we were 15 (yup, high school sweethearts). After graduating high school in 2008, we moved from NJ to IN to attend college, and less than a year later we were engaged (at 19). If it hadn’t been for financial woes within our families, we’d likely be married by now, but everything happens for a reason, or so I believe. Anyway, it was around the time we got engaged that I came down wtith a case of “baby fever,” which hasn’t left since. I’ve just always loved children, and always knew I wanted to have them earlier in life. This feeling has only intensified, and hopefully soon after we’re married, Fiance and I will start TTC. It’s been a bit hard to deal with the strong desire to have children for various reasons, be it from the fact that I am now past the age my mom was when I was born, or maybe because I am constantly in contact with children, as I work as a preschool teacher and nanny for two families that have just had newborns, or possibly the biggest blow of all, that my younger brother and his girlfriend are “unexpectedly expecting” their first child in August. Hopefully, this ailment can be cured soon. Fiance says he would like to get married, and then hopefully we can start trying. Trust me, that time couldn’t get here soon enough!

    Oh, man. I totally clicked on this thread because I saw the title and thought, “OH YES.”

    Even though we’ve been married for almost 3 years (holy cow!), we’re still on the youngish side of things for kids, especially for where we live and our careers — 25 and 27 are still considered babies in NYC, and it’s very rare for people our age in showbiz to be married. 

    We still need a few years financially because New York is SO crazy expensive, and we’re also not ready to put our very challenging careers on the backburner yet, BUT we both have mad baby fever. It is so difficult to make my rational side speak louder than my emotional I WANT A BABY NOW side ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Mrs. Star:  I know what you mean! We both have baby fever and though sometimes we don’t admit it because we know it is not a possibility right now, we inevitably have tons of conversations about kids…nieces and nephews, kids I nanny for, our own childhoods and I’ve been learning soo much about kids through school, nieces and nephews and through nannying and I’m finding that I’m pretty good with kids ๐Ÿ™‚ We have learned a lot about the do’s and do not’s with kids and we can’t wait to be able to make our own organic babyfood and take family trips and do mommy n’ me music classes and family dance parties and trips to national parks. haha. I guess it is important that even though it seems like most of us on here have baby fever, if you are waiting for at least a little while longer like we are, to simply enjoy the moment! 

    Yes, being a parent will be awesome and challenging but there are some awesome things about being just a young couple…winetasting, lots of alone time, lots of travel, going out at night, sleeping in, ect. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @rachiebliss:  Good point! I do try to remember all the good things about not having babies right now, like getting full nights of sleep ๐Ÿ™‚

    @Mrs. Star:  as much as being home made me like “must have baby now!” there was a point where about four parents were trying to corral about seven kids, all who were destroying something/running away/acting up, and I turned to my sister and said, “Ok, so I’m kinda happy we just have cats.”

    If all babies were like my niece (quiet, kinda shy but friendly, chilled-out, well-behaved) I’d be in deep trouble!

    I have total baby lust! But we’re still pretty young (I’m 22 and Fiance is 22 next month) so we’ll be waiting a few years after we get married. We want to be more financially stable, have our house, and have had some time to just be married and maybe travel before bubs come!

    We’re 23 and 24, and have been trying for babies for the past 18 months. I wanted babies from the day we got married, but as newlyweds in a tiny apartment with no jobs and student loans, we figured we couldn’t swing it. After being married about 8 months, we were in a MUCH better place financially. Now we’re trying to decide whether to give up on trying for a bit (I’ve been diagnosed with primary infertility), but I have BRUTAL baby lust.

    Don’t know if I can go back to waiting after all this time.
