@hanzabelle:  haha. I like the idea of a waiting board in the baby section… lolz. Also feel a bit relieved that I’m not the only one with baby rabies.

Me! The baby-crazy has been creeping up on me but it’s hit full force in the past month. I’m 31 so I’d like to get going with things sooner rather than later but it will be at least a year before we TTC. In the mean time I’m just trying to keep my crazy under control.

I definitely am baby crazy!  I got married 2 months ago and when that happened…something clicked inside of me and said “you need a baby NOW!”  I will be waiting at least 3 years to have a child because my husband just started grad school to be a nurse practitioner and his graduation date is 2015.  I am glad to wait though because we need to pay off a bunch of debt and save some money so I can be a stay at home mom for atleast a year.  But it is fun to read all things baby to get ideas for the future.

OMG – so glad to know I’m not alone.  I’ve been feeling like this on and off for months and now it’s getting even worse, we still have 3 months before our wedding and he feels we’re not financially ready for a baby and of course he has no idea how I’m feeling even though he loves children and wants them in a year or so. What’s even harder is all his sister has 2 amazing children that we spend as much time as possible with – which can sometimes get me even more depressed.  Last night I almost had an asthma attack because I was crying so much. I also had a minor health scare a few months ago which changed my thinking about some things – feeling like I can’t just keep waiting, you never know what could happen.  Still feeling like a crazy girl with all these emotions!

@renemarie:  Aww, I’m sorry. It sounds like you’re having a hard time. I think it might talk to FH, not necessarily to try to push up your timeline (alas, we all have to wait until BOTH family members are ready, right?) but I think it will help you feel a bit better if he knows where you stand. Then you won’t feel like you’re bearing the “brunt of it” alone. 

DH is really supportive, and has become more flexible to the idea of baby (although we have a hardfast rule so I’m waiting..), but I don’t think his flexibility would have ever developed at all if he didn’t know how I felt and how much I actually think about our family expanding.

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  Thanks so much for your understanding.  I actually did talk to him about it last night, but he feels we need to wait because of finances – unfortunately it’s not so easy to just tell this little “baby fever” fairy to go away. He thinks I can just try to be happy and sort of forget about how I feel.

I have it bad! I had it bad before we were married too.

We didn’t try on the honeymoon or a few weeks after because we had a lot of events to go to right after our honeymoon where things like alcohol and not-pregnancy-safe foods were. I’ve already got a bunch of ‘Are you pregnant yet?!’ questions, and I’m only 21. I knew people would figure it out if I turned down one of my favorite mojitos or some fantastic sushi. I don’t want to have to explain to anyone that we’re TTC/pregnant until we actually GET pregnant and hit the ‘safe’ point in the pregnancy.

I am soooo beyond baby ready!  DH and I already have a son together that will be 5 next month.  We’ve been together the entire time, we just had certain things we wanted to make sure were in place before we got married….annnddd I was stubborn and didn’t want to go to the courthouse.  Anywho…we are both only children as well and agreed years ago that we wanted to have at least 2 children.  So now that we are finally married, we own a home, have our degrees and stable jobs, and geez DH is 30 and DS is going to be 5!  I’m going to be 28 this year…I’m soo soo soo ready. 

I am working on DH, however he is always thinking about finances and always feels like we aren’t ready.  My stance is that we’ve done it before with MUCH less…and no matter how much one prepares no one is really 100% ready.  But *fingers crossed* we do talk about having another with our son (so he can get acclimated to the idea, bc of course he pretty much hung the moon for the past 5 years) and have discussed names!

@FloretteLiz:  I just ordered the ‘backwards cape’ bib on etsy I saw you mention.  My soon-to-be sister-in-law just had a baby and I decided he needed one!  A new baby in the family has sent my baby fever into overdrive!!!  We are waiting until after the wedding though to start TTC so I still have a few months to wait.

You are not alone!  I’ve had the babies rabies since we were married (almost 10 months ago).  We are (unfortunately!!) waiting several more years before TTC.  We’re not ready financially to raise a baby.  We *could*, but we’d have to forego a lot of the luxuries we have right now (eating out, vacations – basically all of our “fun” money).  *sigh*  Such is life!!  It helps that none of our married friends have children, either, so we have a good support system (i.e., no cute babies to tempt us!!)  🙂
