I wouldn’t worry too much yet.  Right now it doesn’t sound like you want a baby for yourself which is different than just thinking about babies in a theoretical sense.  There was a month or so a little while ago where I really really wanted a baby for myself.  But reality took over and I realized we aren’t in a place for one and I’m not really ready either.

Just take it day by day and it may turn out that you are ready for one sooner than 8 years from now.

My baby fever hit me hard around 4 months ago, and hasn’t backed down (i’ll be 28 in a few months). Up until then, I was very much the independent/world traveler/big dreams/not ready for kids to get in the way type of person. It’s crazy – I wish it were easier for scientists to study the origin and regulation of instincts, because it is fascinating to watch my own kick in!

I dont have an eight year wait but I do have a four year one and it is KILLING me.  Everyone I know..literally everyone is pregnant or just had a child.  I was in serious baby fever mode about a month ago.  We fought about it constantly because he wanted to wait even longer.  So I whittled him down to four years and then I had a good old pregnancy scare and realized how ready we are not! haha  You might forget about it for awhile once you are busier.

Try babysitting a cranky toddler.  That definitely put my baby-fever on hold!

@fvsoccer: there are times that I REALLY want a baby but it lasts about 2 weeks and then I come back to loving my life how it is right now. I think going through phases is normal too…and coming back to the reality of how hard being a mom to a new baby actually is. Not to say it isn’t worth it but it just takes 150% of your time.

When you are busy you will definitely think about babies less. But I think its something thats worth talking to Fiance about if the phase doesn’t pass!
