@O.My.Heart:  Oh my goodness yes. I probably tell SO 4 or 5 times a week that I want a baby. I even asked him if I hit the powerball last week if we could get married next year and start trying next summer. Well, I didn’t win. So back to our original plan of 2015 or 2016 to start trying. Frown

Thankfully I have a ton of little cousins and his brothers have kids.

I’m beginning to experience this too, but it’s a peculiar dichotomy of emotions. First, I feel as though I want one, and then the thought of it scares the crap out of me! Like, it’s a decision you can’t really change your mind on if you don’t like it. Anyone else, or am I insane?

I had baby fever pretty badly for the last three or four years (I’m married already, we bought a house a few months ago and now I’m pregnant). It was BAD…so I got a puppyfour years ago.  Ohhhhh…and I LOVE that dog.  He is my baby.  But he was lonely (in my opinion).  So three years ago, I got another puppy.  They are so wonderful together!!  Then two years ago.  I got another puppy.  By The Way…I LOVE dogs.  They are so wonderful and it really helped curb the baby fever.  I probably give my dogs WAY too much attention but I just love them so much!!!  Maybe get a kitten or a puppy?

@O.My.Heart:  YES. Bad. I’m almost 30 and we’ve been married for six months and it hit hard three months ago. We’re waiting for another year, probably January 2014 and that seems SO FAR AWAY. We really can’t do it yet. Darling Husband is in school and not making much money and we live in a tiny little condo with no room. Baby would have to sleep with us and I’d probably have to hang clothes from the ceiling just to make room! But yes, the fever is there and bad. On Friday night he was a little tipsy and we were talking about kids and suddenly he said, “Do you want to go make a baby?” Oh man was that hard. I told him to be quiet because if he said it again, I’d rip my IUD out with my own hands and get on with it. Heee.

@O.My.Heart:  Awww, thank you!  I know when the time is right you will be a wonderful mommy!  Just be patient.  ๐Ÿ™‚  I know that’s hard to hear, but when you and your Fiance are both ready, it will be a wonderful experience for you both.

@O.My.Heart:  To be honest I hope I will get it someday! SO wants children, I’m open to the possibility of one but if it doesn’t hit me it won’t happen. The earliest we will try anyway is 2016 if I get hit.

I know it sounds like a silly question, but why do you want a baby?

I just keep searching inside me and don’t find any desire or reasons I’d want one appart from the fact that I’d enjoy it when I’m older (like 50 or something).

I am the QUEEN of baby fever! We had a baby during our college years (wasn’t planned, but he’s our entire world), and now that we’re both out of school, settled in our careers and built a house: I’M READY!!!!!! Our son is SIX. I didn’t want our kids to be this far apart, but SO was in Pharmacy School, and there was literally NO way he would have been able to help me with a second. We have been together for EIGHT years, and I’m STILL waiting toget engaged. I’m not quite sure WTH he’s waiting for!!!! I want to be married for the second baby (not that it really matters since we already have a son, but STILL!). I need him to hurry the heck up already! ๐Ÿ™‚

@O.My.Heart:  I hope it hits me one day! I’ve kind of become disenchanted with this romantic idea of motherhood, mostly because all the mothers I know say that it’s not at all as they expected. 

Everyone as always told me that there is no innate bond with the baby, you have to work on it and create it yourself. That was also my experience with pregnancy. 

I was actually more curios about how things change after, like the relationship with your SO, your indipendence, your job. For example I just get terrified at the idea of never having a day to spend alone with SO the way we do now, or not being able to just go away for the weekend, or go out if we feel like it.

@O.My.Heart:  Definitely!  We’re getting married in February and the plan was the wait and try the end of next year and hopefully be pregnant by our year anniversary but I don’t think we’re going to wait that long. haha. We’re too excited to wait.
