I am going crazy!
I have just self diagnosed myself with a severe case of Baby Fever…
Some info about us… Fiance an I have been together for 4.5 years and are set to marry in January (YAY!!)… we have traveled a ton and have had time to buy a small condo in the meantime… we have achieved a lot as a couple and are very ambitious.
All my friends and family are starting to have their children and i’ve got the jealousy bug… I mentioned this to my Fi and after months of him not wanting to talk about it, he finally cam up with a five year plan… which is to move from where we are, have our wedding, travel once more, and have a baby. Fi wants to do this trip about 1 year after we’re married (which will be Jan 2014) and start TTC shortly after…
Problem is is that my brain says thats a great plan… but my heart is screaming that its too long!!! how will i ever go that long without going crazy?
How are you ladies trying to prevent this feeling…
If you had this feeling… does the time realy go by as slow as its seeming it will?

Yep… see here! Why not make a list of the reasons why you’re not having a baby yet??

Go to a restaurant with one of your friends who has a baby that is like a year old… LOL I love my nieces and nephew but sometimes I’m like OMG, when I get baby fever I play with them to get my fix and then give them back to my sisters when they poop or start crying. Ha!

Volunteer at a preschool at a Church or something like that. You will change your mind! Go do things like going out that you won’t be able to later…

Pick a night, preferably a week night and set your alarm to wake you up every 2 hours. Then drag yor ass out of bed and pace your living room for 90 minutes. See how happy you are in morning. That alone should tone down the fever for a while.

@MrsPom: Yes! Or younger. Lunch with a friend and her 2 month old was good for at least a week…I thought. Until I held her. Just don’t hold them! Lol.

@UpstateCait: Hahahha. Perfect. That should be on a “Baby Fever Cure” website. Don’t forget to spill some old milk or something else yucky all down your shirt, maybe even in your hair a little.

@UpstateCait: Bahaha yes. And possibly hold a cat who doesn’t want to be held during those 90 minutes. Maybe a cat who poops a lot.

@AmeliaBedelia: & @Juliepants: Oh yea!
I’m also thinking that you could volunteer at a nursing home the morning after Mexican night so you can get some first hand experience in changing horrendously shitty diapers. That can’t be fun.
ETA: Lol, just realized that they probably would let volunteers change diapers so scratch that.

@UpstateCait: That is awesome!
OP- best contraceptive in the world for me is spending time with my childed friends. Makes me grateful for it just to be me and the husband. 🙂

I feel you BUT what happens if none of that works?! lol I watch my nephews ALL the time, I’m normally the one who jumps up when one of them are crying, put them down for naps and change their diapers… When we’re altogether at family gatherings, if either one of the boys (1 and 2) wont go down for a nap everyone asks me to take over… lol The only thing that changes Darling Husband and my mind sometimes is we really want to go to Disney World next year but that’s a trip we can go on with children in the future! AHHHH
