I try and rationalize the crap out of myself. I start researching prices of kids and most of the time logic eventually wins out. OH, and I avoid baby sections in stores. ๐Ÿ™‚

I feel your pain. Be strong. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m having a hard time with it!! My Fiance and I are living together, and we’re both working so everything is pretty much set. We’re just waiting for the wedding and honeymoon really. I find it especially hard when many of our friends are announcing that they’re expecting!!

Just keep reminding yourself why it is important to wait a while and avoid the baby sections they are TOO tempting =) Though if you go to Walmart and hang out for a while you will see all of the bratty little kids screaming and running around like little heathens and it’s like a dose of birth control =)

Ah yes. And I avoid people who have them…….sad but true. I even avoid their facebook pictures so I don’t get all mushy gushy about it. I know we aren’t ready yet. Correction: He isn’t. And we aren’t ready financially. haha.

But yeah. I made a cost spreadsheet during one of my worse “baby fever epidemics” about how much all the stuff costs….and then I died a little. ๐Ÿ˜‰ So it helped.

Good luck! Just enjoy being an aunt for a little while! Oh, and go read a frustrated mom’s status every once in a while. Here’s one from my friend, K: 

Up feeding Ryder then back to bed! It was at 3:22 am.

@miss-spunkin: Well enjoy the body you have now for as long as you can, you may not be one of those lucky ones that go back to size 0 after they have a baby I went from a size 8 or 9 to a size 16 and I have saggy boobs and stretch marks! ๐Ÿ˜‰

go to some restaurants where kids are.  once you hear them screaming, crying, and being bratty you’ll realize maybe it’s a good thing you don’t have any of them yet.

@miss-spunkin: wow… you are far gone, usually that would make a person not want a baby ever! LOL But yes it is a beautiful thing =) I went through almost 50 hours of labor all naturally and I will gladly do it again, though I hope its not as long!

@ttn133: OMG! I’m reading it, and I think I’m in shock. They should really talk about that stuff in Sex Ed! It might have an effect.

@miss-spunkin:

I haven’t yet experienced baby fever, so I can’t really help you. But, I have been really wanting to adopt a cat, lately… to the point that my Fiance said I was talking about it in my sleep! ^_^;

It’s hard, but I just try not to think about it. If I think about it, I am somehow able to rationalize that it would be okay to get a cat– despite all the logical reasons (time, money, roommates) I should not.

Good Luck!

We just try to focus on all the things we want to do (mostly vacations) that a baby would put a major damper on.  And think about how nice it is to have money…
