I am only planning on TTC following my wedding which is a little more than a year a away, yet I find myself reading all of the baby posts, and day dreaming about when we can start a family! Is this normal? Anyone just as excited for babies as for the wedding?!

Absolutely! We married two weeks ago, and the only thing keeping us from having a baby right this minute is that I have 75 lbs. to lose and we want to pay off our credit card debt first. We are so excited! Over dinner tonight, Darling Husband wanted to talk about boys’ names since we have girls names picked already. It is actually kind’ve nice to have the wait for the logical reasons—plus we are getting in a TON of communication about what needs to be discussed before baby. Even screaming babies are tugging at my heartstrings right now, so yeah, I’ve got it pretty bad. It didn’t help that Darling Husband and I babysat two toddlers the other night. Big mistake lol. All he could talk about was how cute they were and how happily exhausted he was. 😀

@canadian-b33: Yep this was me for years! We just got married and are TTC now. We didnt want to try before we were married and so it felt like an eternity waiting for the proposal, then the wedding to get to this point.
@PilotsGirl56: Wonderful to hear how excited your husband is!! Good luck in preparing to TTC!

I was like this too! We waited 6 months after our wedding to TTC and it was really hard to wait!

I got bit by the bug big time last weekend visiting our friends and their newborn. Our initial timeline was 2 years after wedding (which would be Oct 2013) but we have moved it to April/May 2013 and now I want to go off BC in Dec/January…funny how it happens huh?

I’m exactly the same!! We’re planning on getting married November next year, but I’m just so obsessed with babies at the moment! Haha, I keep thinking “We could have a baby now and get it out of the way…” but fiance’s not so keen on that idea, given that his parents would obviously prefer we have it after the wedding, not to mention a wedding and honeymoon while breastfeeding a baby would be a pain. I’m glad my fiance’s got his head on straight, or we’d have a litter by now!

I am the same way! I have been baby crazy for about 2 1/2 years now. And we finally are on the same page and are “going to see what happens” after sept. I’m dying! Haha. I already bought a onesie last year that hubby doesn’t know about!!! Everyone in our family is dying for us to have babies too, so at least we know we have support. I just lost my job of 5 years last week, which could be a blessing in disguise because i could not work that job and be pregnant at the same time(too labor intensive/unsafe). So we will see!

I am engaged to my high school sweetheart, whom I have been with since we were 15. We got engaged over three years ago when we were 19, and that’s when “baby fever” started for me. We’re getting married in a little over two months, and then we will start TTC soon after, but it has not been easy being “baby crazy.” There’s been quite the baby boom in my life, hitting hardest when my younger brother and his girlfriend became pregnant. Their first daughter is due at the end of August. It was quite the blow to me, as I always assumed (being the eldest child), that I would have children first, especially since I so badly want them, but it is what it is. And, while I’m envious, and surely a bit jealous, I am also excited to become an aunt. Until my time, I will be dreaming of babies… constantly. There’s really no cure. Oh, and I don’t think I mentioned, I’m a nanny to two families, who both welcomed new additions into their lives within the past 5 months. It truly is down-right rough sometimes! Hang in there though! We all must stay positive and pray for our time to come as quickly as possible.

Oh man, I know EXACTLY how you feel! I’ve got the baby fever big time! We just got married a month ago and I’ve been off BCP for two months (they stopped making that kind right before the wedding – I was irate!). We plan on waiting a year before NTNT, taking an international trip, and I want to pay off my credit card before. We’re doing FAM right now to avoid. My brain knows I have things I want to do first, but my hormones are rabid.

Hahaha, I am too! I love children, and am one of those girls who has always wanted to be a Mother! It doesn’t help I work at a Children’s Museum and am surrounded by kids all day long!

Baby fever I haz it. I wanna have kids so badly its driving me nuts. We vowed we would wait at least a year before really discussing it agian. Also we really wanna have a house before we have kids. Also Fiance needs a new car in the spring, and when we start haveing kids ill need a new car. And we only wanna have one car loan going on at once. I know its the right thing to wait but its making me crazy. lol

Very much yes. Yes, yes, yes! We’re not going to start until post wedding, but I am surrounded by a lot of pregnant women and babies and I can’t wait. (But we will!)

I’ve been married over a year now, and it’s really bad. I think Darling Husband is starting to come around, but right now we live in a really dangerous, dirty place that I would never bring a child into if I could help it (which, fortunately, I’m a foreigner here so I actually *can* leave). Darling Husband isn’t even happy with me wanting to switch from my IUD to charting while we live here. It’s up for negotiation again around December.
In the mean time, he’s going to read TCOYF and I’m starting to move a bit of money every month into a savings account so we’re ready when we want to be.
