Recently I’ve had a very bad case of baby fever. I just can’t stop thinking about getting pregnant or having a baby. Darling Husband and I aren’t trying and aren’t really ready, but it’s in the forefront of my mind. I also thought I was pregnant last week because I’ve been really tired, really dizzy, change in appetite and mood swings. I took a test but it came back negative….
Anyone else having some bad baby fever?

Yup!!! Last month I was convinced I was pregnant, even though I’m on the pill. I was half excited, half terrified. Then of course I get my period exactly on track 🙂 But we talk about it alllll the time, especially since we’d like to start trying in the next 4-6 months or so, so that doesn’t help my baby fever!

Oh yes. I think I’ve had a bad case of baby fever since I was 16. LOL!
We’re not really ready yet (we’d like to be married and saving money first). However, it sure doesn’t help that my Fiance will sometimes say things like “You’re going to be the cutest/hotest pregnant wife EVER” or “I can’t wait until your pregnant”.

My baby fever is coming back. I got all excited when I was talking to my BFF about it, she’s TTC in October. Fiance and I aren’t TTC anymore (or going to for a while) but I am seriously hung up on it!

I definitely have baby fever! I even dreamed that I was pregnant last week! The dream ended with my water breaking and rushing to the hospital.
Darling Husband and I saw family this weekend for labor day and I got multiple questions about when we were going to have kids, get pregnant, have an announcement, etc. The questions don’t bother me as I understand why people ask and I’m not offended or anything. But it certainly puts babies at the fore-front of my brain!
I just have to keep refering my baby fever emotions to the logical side of my brian that says “I want to be a Stay-At-Home Mom and Darling Husband and I can’t do that on just his salery yet.”.

I’ve got serious baby fever and there’s no hope in sight for a baby for me…at least not for 4 years. In the meanwhile I baby my dog like it’s no one’s business.

yes and no. i’ve been having dreams about being preggo and when i see cute little pregnant people i’m like oh i want to be pregnant. But we are in the same boat, not ready yet for that. probably in the next year-but i keep thinking about the what if it just happened would we be ready? it’s just hard at this age i think.
i always spend a little time over at my best friends house with her new born….that usually clears up my baby fever for a few weeks!

Yes! Originally I wanted to wait approx 4 years after we got married. Well we’ve almost been married a year and what do you know, I have baby fever! Whenever it gets bad I just think about not being able to just drop everything and go out with DH/friends, missing out on trips and traveling, and lazy days off becoming a rarity. I still value my sleep too much for a baby right now. lol

I am so glad to know I’m not alone….I feel crazy! Esp because I’m the only one of my friends who is even married, so I can’t talk to anyone about this!
@hilsy85: yes I convinced myself I was too! I took 2 tests! Darling Husband was terrified haha
@.twist.: yeah I think Ive had it since a teenager as well…and I am glad Darling Husband isnt saying that to me because that would definitely make it worse!
@Mrs.KMM: ahh pregnancy dreams! I’ve had them too and it doesnt help that 2 of my friends have had dreams that Im pregnant and 2 coworkers, my mom and my husbands friend have all asked if I’m pregnant because they’ve “had a feeling” or “I look pregnant” (not fat, just like tired??)

@.twist.: ugh, Fiance says the same things to me. And I’m taking birth control but sometimes I convince my self I might be because I didn’t take it on the dot at 10pm or something. It’s crazy. It doesn’t help that FI’s mom LOVES babies and would DIE if we had one. She’s been hinting that she would be okay if we had a baby for the last two years now.

I had a spike in baby fever last night at work when a lady came in with an extremely cute toddler. But then I reminded myself of all the reasons we want to adopt and what pregnancy can do to your body…and it faded, lol.
Since I’m now taking the pill continously, I get a period every three months, which means I have to test during the second pack to make sure. I tested yesterday morning and obv. it was negative…I was relieved and also a little sad, which is completely absurd and irrational.

Yes. It has seriously become like alllll that I think about. It doesn’t help that I have 2 cousins, 2 best friends and 3 acquaintances who are all pregnant and due in the spring!!

@Running Elley: I feel like literally everyone is getting pregnant! Every other day some unmarried or unengaged person is posting on facebook about their baby bump. I get jealous and I don’t even know why! We are literally 3-4 yrs away from TTC, but I can’t help it.
And then I follow a lot of blogs and old bees and everyone seems to be pregnant. Oy

Consuming my mind, and we’re trying! I feel like there’s such a space in our lives that a child could fill, and everything we do as a couple I find myself thinking “Wouldn’t it be great to have a kid with us while we do this, or do that, etc.” Darling Husband and I were at the beach this past weekend and were talking about how great it would be to have a little one playing in the sand! Hopefully by this time next summer…
But, yes, I have it and it’s burning STRONG!

@MrsMaine:Fiance and I were like that. It’s so hard! 😛 We were TTC but when we hit the year mark we decided we’d take a break and for a while the baby fever went away but it’s come back!
@PitBulLover: It’s the worst when everyone around you falls pregnant. I think at one point I knew 17 people who were either pregnant or had just had a baby!!
