I know that I do and openly talk about it.  FI has no problem with it though because he wants to have children as well.  We just want to make sure we’re more financially stable before we really TTC.  

Good luck!

This hasn’t happened to me recently, but a few months after getting married I ran it by him. It was a very interesting conversation and we ended up agreeing to move up our ttc date a few years…which turned into “Why wait?”

I just caught the fever as well…we’re not going to try right away but Fiance and I have discussed it and he’s fine with it. I’ll be a few days shy of 29 when we get married and we’d like to have about 3 kids so it’s something we’d want to begin to work on by the time I’m 32 or so.

I was completely fine with waiting two years after we got married….until my niece came along. Now I don’t think, I KNOW I have the baby fever. Mr. D went along with me to my lady doctor appointment and I think I have him sold on trying sooner!

I’m not sure yet; we made a deal to have 3 “bigs” before kids:

Big trip

Big (selfish) purchase

Big risk


The big trip is to either Dubai, Barbados or Paris

The big purchase is either a new giant television or another car

The big risk is sky diving


Whenever we’re done doing all three then we start trying!

Everyone around me is having babies… it is like contagion!

I have other plans however. Must be missing that ticking biological clock I guess. πŸ™‚

Talk to your Darling Husband, hopefully you will be on the same page and can get started πŸ˜‰

Right there with you!  Our initial “baby plan” was to wait 3 or 4 years after the wedding.  Then, a couple months after the wedding I got hit with the babies rabies.  I too was nervous about talking to Darling Husband about it since we had already decided on a timeline.  So I casually brought it up to him, and surprisingly enough he was on board with trying!  And by casually, I mean it sort of went like this:  Me: “Hey, I want to go off of BCP.”  Him:  “Why?  Do you want to have a baby?”  Me:  “Maybe later this year?”  Him: “Ok.  Works for me.”  LOL 

We’re going to try in the fall!

welcome to the club! haha πŸ™‚ Darling Husband and I are on the same page when it comes to TTC so I’m not sure how much help I can give with broaching the subject, but definitely make sure to cover points like finances, things you want to do before children, things you might want to do before children but would be okay doing after having children. Good luck!

The first and biggest step is communication… You have to be open and honest with him about your desire for a child. Establish what you absolutely need (money, jobs, home situation) and things that you would like (trips, purchases, promotions) before you start TCC. Even if you start the conversation with what he sees neccessary to be in place before you start so you can see if you are on the same page. Bear in mind that he also needs to be ready (at least to some degree) for you both to be rock solid before you start… As much as it might kill you to wait longer, I’ve seen far too many girls do an “oops” when the guy wasn’t ready and it didn’t turn out so well for them.

It’s hard to just turn off though huh?!

I think it is always going to freak everyone out a bit.  Darling Husband wants kids, and wanted them earlier, but when I said ok, six months from now  he was a bit unsettled. he is getting comfortable with the idea on a new level now that it is more real, but he and I have both gone through that transition to ‘ok, this is really going to happen.’

I hit baby fever a long time ago. We talked about it, and decided on a TTC date – before the wedding. I’m glad we did, since we’ve had fertility issues and no luck falling pregnant yet.

I’ve got it and I think Darling Husband does as well… we go back and forth. We go from lets just see what happens to well lets get in one more big vaction and go from there. I recently set up an appointment with my gyno to start a BC plan (DH asked me to look into it) but tonight he texted me and said “I don’t want you going on BC… lets leave it in God hands”… So there is our answer! πŸ™‚


*I got all teary eyed and excited when he sent me that text tonight… really makes me realized how ready I really am. We are not “financially” ready but who is? πŸ™‚

I have Baby Fever too… BAD! Fi and I are set to get married this January and I would personally like to start trying shortly after however he wants to wait a year… I respect that as right now I am only 25 and will be 26 once we’re married and we only plan on having one or 2 children… however… how do i prevent myself from going crazy in the meantime!?
