You are definitely not alone!! We are dying to start TTC. We are waiting until February when we know what next year will bring for me professionally. It may mean anything from starting in February, to waiting until at least Dec 2011 to start trying. I would do almost anything to just start right now, and I hate waiting. I will be SO happy when we are finally TTC!!

@ttn133: I’ve looked up cloth diapers too. And strollers. Especially strollers. I’ll be getting the Uppa Baby Vista :p
We’re probably 3 years out from TTC. I really, really want to try next year, but my Darling Husband thinks it’s best we wait for a variety of reasons, and deep down, I know he’s right. But I still find it depressing and it makes me sad. Lots of people I know are having babies. Lots of these people are in positions worse than us too. Plus I think we’ll make excellent parents and I see stories of these people that really just don’t deserve kids. Then to top it all off I was diagnosed with PCOS so just by the fact that I’ve learned I’m only ovulating every other month instead of once a month, it’s just going to take us longer. I was watching Baby Story on TLC and a woman with PCOS said they had been trying for 3-4 years before turning to fertility drugs and I nearly lost it. I had to fight back the tears. It doesn’t help that I’m stressed overall so maybe I wouldn’t have been close to crying on an average day, but it just sucks 🙁 It’s worse than waiting to get engaged was! We’re young and have time on our side, but it’s really such a hard feeling to fight.

Yep! We are waiting so that my husband can get further in med school and so we can save up a bit more than we already have, but I am very anxious! I also wanted to be completely finished with school, so I’m graduating with a bachelors degree next month and then decided to get a certificate for teaching but I am much more excited to be a mother than to be a teacher 🙂

Oh and btw, next weekend I am going to a birthday party for my friend’s soon to be stepson and he is absolutely adorable. It is his 2nd birthday… definitely not going to help with the fever lol

I’m also in this boat. Fiance and I are getting married in June and we want to wait at least a year before TTC. I KNOW that this is the right decision for us, but sometimes the baby fever really gets to me. A lot of my friends are starting to have babies and I’m a little jealous … but I’m I know the waiting will pay off in the end. In the mean time I’m contenting myself with playing with FI’s 9 month old neice and my friend’s little babies.

I’m in full out baby fever mode also. It doesn’t help that so many of my friends are becoming pregnant, wheras Darling Husband and I agreed to wait 2 years to start TTC, plus I won’t have maternity insurance until June. 22 months left before we start talking about TTC 🙁 It seems like such a long time. My head (and lots of people) are telling me to “enjoy being married” but my heart and my biological clock are saying “baby, baby, baby!”

I’m with ya. Getting married in four months and looking for a house. Adding a baby to the mix right now would probably be a bad idea. I like reminding my Fiance, however, that it takes 85% of women 6 to 8 months to conceive, in hopes that he’ll want to start sooner rather than later. 😀

I’m getting married in less than a month. I’m 30. Fiance and I had originally agreed to be married for a year before we started to try to have children, but as the big day approaches, I’m starting to hear the loudest most annoying tic! I mentioned it to Fiance and he said well go off the pill and if it happens it happens. It was nice that he is so agreeable, but I know that’s not what he really wants either.

so, since I last posted on here, two more people I know have gotten pregnant. I’m happy for them, but it sure does make waiting get harder and harder!

I am with you all on this one. About two years ago (I am 26 now) its like a switch turned on in my head, and I felt this physical longing to be pregnant and have a baby. I wait tables occasionally, and sometimes it is actually a little painful for me to be around pregnant women or babies.
My partner loves kids too, and we’re both really excited about having them. But he’s in medical school and I’m in graduate school, and because of our schedules aren’t getting married until summer of 2012. But you can bet that the night of our wedding and from then on we will be trying.
Have you seen the Pampers ‘Silent Night’ commercial? Gets me everytime.
