Hobbies, the gym, meeting up with child-free friends helped me a lot when I was having baby-fever during difficult times. You just need to keep busy and keep the faith that everything will happen in it’s time.

Just remind yourself that other people’s situation has nothing to do with you. You only feel bad because you are comparing yourself to others and thinking thoughts that it should be you. Make some big plans to look forward to like planning a trip or getting a new job or promotion… Or if you absolutely need to mother something get an animal. Take action.

Bee, I wanna start with saying that I hear ya. I’m now in my 30s and feel that baby fever often and sometimes fear it may not happen.

With that being said… And I hate to sound like that “look on the bright side” gal, but really, focus on the positives here. 

Having no baby is better than having one with the wrong person. Use this time to focus on you and seriously try to enjoy it, it may be the last time IN YOUR LIFE that you are single and able to devote all of your energy on YOU (instead of on a husband or baby). 

Remind yourself that you will have a good life with or without a baby and don’t pressure yourself so much to make it happen.
