I am beyond ready to be a mom and start a family with Mr. Shef. He feels the same way. But while I may be in the right place emotionally and mentally, I know we are not in the right place in our life. We are both still in school. And while this is my last semester I know that right out of college isn’t the best time to start a family. I want to have a house and a career and be married before we actually have children. Then again with the wedding just 6 months away we would obviously be married before we had a baby even if I became pregnant right now. We have had almost 5 wonderful years together and I can’t see myself waiting years after we get married to start a family. But, while my brain knows it isn’t the right time, my heart says otherwise and it is driving me nuts! I decided I needed a puppy to take up some of the attention and to love and nurture the best way you can for a puppy, but Mr. Shef wont even let me have one of those! A dog will affect both of us so I can’t just go out and get one even though he says no… ugh. Anybody else feeling the same way or atleast similarly?

I know the feeling. I turn 28 this year and the ticking of the clock is getting louder and louder. We’re going to TRY to wait until after our first anniversary to start TTC because I want us to just enjoy married life for a while but it kills me a little inside to know that I’ll likely be 30 before I start having babies.

I know the feeling! Although I’m very young, my fiance and I get so excited and worked up about having kids at least once a month and then have to remind ourselves of all the things we want to and have to do first. Its a huge test to my patience but at least I know that by the time I’m ready to have kids, we’ll be so thrilled and they’ll be the most loved kids in the world

I have been clucky since I was two years old and my younger sister was born (apparently I used to tell everyone she was my baby and not my mum’s)
If it were up to me I would happily start having babies now but according to SO he thinks we should wait a few more years until we’re at least 25- he’s 22 and I’m 21 atm.
I agree that it’s the sensible thing to do but it kills me, I’m the type of girl who baby talks to my computer screen if there is an ad for baby clothes lol, I can’t help it I just feel it’s the reason I am here and what I’m meant to do.

@TrentsGirl:I could have written your post lol. Fiance and I want to wait about 2 years after we get married but I’m itching to have kids right now. I really feel like I am supposed to be a mother.

I feel for you…it’s hard wanting babies when you know now isn’t the time!
I never wanted marriage or children. Slowly things became serious and I accepted one day I’d want to marry Mr.Cosmo and then slowly I realized maybe, one day, I’d have a baby with him. Then, fast forward another year and a half later and I want babes! Timing is wrong though. Fiancially unstable, unclear career path for me and an upcoming deployment for him.
We actually have our plan that he has already willingly talked about with our friends, 18 months. We’ll have saved money from his deployment and if all goes according to plan I’ll have a new full time job closer to home.
I know the time will fly and it will happen when it’s ready but omg…I’m just so eager all of a sudden!!

I hear ya. I really wanted to be a young(er) parent and have kids by 25. Well, thats kinda long gone. We get married this summer, but now I’ve already accepted that I’m already past the ‘young’ point. Though I sort of want to start trying right away, I plan on enjoying at least a few months of marriage time before TTC and so that if I do get pregnant quickly, I won’t be more than 4-5 months in during our one more big 3-4 week vacation the following spring since it’ll probably be the last one like that we go on in a while once a kid is in the picture.
