We are too busy trying to plan a wedding for me to do this but iwouldn’t be surprised if I do it right after. I started getting into the baby boards a few weeks ago. Yikes

I’m 30 and married for almost 7 months, together for 3 years.  I’ve always been fascinated with babies and pregnancy, and now that I’m in a situation in which my life is definitely headed in that direction (as opposed to barely out of college and obsessed with TLC’s A Baby Story), it’s been on my mind a lot. Part of me is terrified, but part of me is absolutely craving it.  I saw a one week old baby the other day and nearly cried.

But the truth is I don’t *really* want one right this second.  I want that first year of marriage first.  I know having a baby is going to change everything.   We are going to look for a house of our own at the end of the year when our lease is up for the home we are renting.  If it were up to me, I’d say lets stop preventing right after our first anniversary in November, but DH balked when I suggested that.  I promised we could wait until then to decide on a timeline. He really wants to be settled in the new house first…although I forgot to point out that even if I got pregnant right away- which is doubtful- we’d still have a whole 9 months before a baby.

 

Yeah- ok- I’m a little more antsy than he is!  But he was nervous about getting engaged too- I was ready about a year before he was-and so far we are loving being married.

My partner has been baby crazy since we had been together for 6 months!

Ive said to him that once we are married and have a house of our own rather than rent we can start! (The house should only be a few months after getting married) but im begining to love the idea of a honeymoon baby!!

im blaming a friend of mine having a baby! lol.

*raises hand* Me. It’s pretty bad. We just celebrated our one year anniversary, and it’s been slowly creeping in over the last few years but its gotten bad. But, we’re on about year 3 of agreeing with wait 5 years. I seriously am not sure whether we will make it through the whole five years (depends on DH) but will probably wait at least another year. Right now we’re living in a really dangerous place that I would NOT want to have a child in. But otherwise… I’d have one tomorrow.

One of my friends just had a baby in December so whenever I see her I get it. And Fiance been talking about having babies for a little bit but we’re waiting until we’re both done with school.

I get it really bad, my MUM keeps telling me to start having babies but alas, it’s really not a good time for us.  We’re getting married next year and probably won’t start TTC until a couple of years after that because I’m just about to start my legal traineeship and it wouldn’t be a particularly good idea to fall pregnant half way through.  We’re only 23 so I keep telling myself we’ve got ages yet, but because everyone in my family has had children so young I already feel like I’m past it!

@hanzabelle:  Yes! And I think it stems from me knowing that’s the next step I want to take in my life so of course I repin kid/baby stuff all time and read blogs of new mommies which makes me want a baby even more. We are definitely waiting at least 3 years though.

You are definitely not alone!  I am beyond baby crazy… probably baby insane haha!  DH and I have been married about 1yr2mos and I’m so ready.  He’s gone from totally not ready to no, not for awhile.. to maybe soon?  So I’m trying to be patient, but the longer we wait, the harder it is.  I think it’s biological.. I have babies on my mind all the time, and we’re at the point where it just feels right.  He’s 30, I’m 29… we’re settling into the house we bought in March, both have very good jobs, etc.  So, I definitely feel your pain… here’s hoping the time comes quickly for us ‘waiting-for-baby’ bees!

ME!  I haven’t gotten to looking through baby books and stuff sort of baby crazy yet, but I definitely feel it.  At least I got my Fiance to agree on a time line.  I am 29 and feel like everyone my age who is planning on having a family has already started.  I just want to start too!
