I just want to know I’m not alone….
Got married about 4 months ago now and have been together over 6 yrs… I’m 27 and we have already decided to wait a couple more years to get a bit more financially secure before we start a family…
BUT… I can’t stop looking at baby stuff, picking out cots and nursery ideas… reading articles on everything from the best cloth nappies to birthing plans…am I crazy???? I am totally happy to wait..but is this a womens clock subconciously coming out or should I just blame Pinterest!??

I was SO baby crazy before we had our daughter. We ended up having her earlier than planned because we both got “baby fever” one month. I was only charting as contraceptive, so we kind of threw caution to the wind and voila- baby conceived 8 months earlier than planned! lol
I can totally relate to having baby fever though! I had it for a couple years. I helped fight it off by building a stash of cloth diapers ahead of time. That kind of distracted me a bit.. hehe

I raised my mom’s ex boyfriends daugher (long story) when I was 19. They broke up and he took her with him. I’ve had baby fever ever since. XD
But right now isnt the right time. We’re not married yet and dont have our own place. Plus my mom flat out told me she doesnt want to be a grandparent until she’s 50. Haha.

We thought we were waiting, but our biology had a different plan…

Me too! We’ve been married almost a year now, and I’m just dying to have a kid. We were waiting for our trip last month to Peru to start. But we’ve decided to wait just 3 more months until after our trip to Italy. I want to be selffish… eat what I want and drink what I want there and not be worried about morning sickness or being too tired to tour.

Me too!! We have good reasons for waiting but it’s hard! And DH keeps talking about babies, which is so weird ( to hear coming from him) .

I’d love to have a honeymoon baby, but we’re waiting. We just are not where we want to be financially. I know if we wait forever for finances to be perfect it will never happen. We just want a little more security than we do now. We’re thinking of trying at the earliest by our anniversary. The longest we want to wait is 5 years from now.
My Fiance loves batman things so much that I might start buying batman related baby items to stash in my hope chest. I won’t need my wedding items in there any longer after all. : D I saw the cutest bib on etsy that said “I have my cape on backwards.” I want to buy it so bad!

I’m not looking at baby stuff or anything, but I really wish we could TTC right now. Alas, it will be at least a year or so. 🙁

I am going baby crazy but I’m not doing nursery type stuff or looking at products. I’m holding off till we actually do get pregnant but we both know what names we want and I’m eager to start TTC. I know we need to wait until we are more financially secure but I want to be young parents because I want my children’s grandparents to be around for a very long time, it is one of the most important things to me. So I’m hoping we can start this year or next. Especially because in my culture people usually have babies immediately after marriage and have many kids.
