Haha thanks ladies I haven’t used Pinterest before – no not even planning my wedding thou people did suggest it – but I just spent nearly 2 hours pinning baby stuff (secretly) hahaha
dammit baby fever is reaching new heights at the moment with all the adorable nurseries and baby photos I’ve just been spring thru 🙂
i swear it feels like TTC is soooooo far away 🙁 How come the months seem to be dragging so much? I am just guessing it has to do with the fact I am counting down 🙂

Wow. This is so relieving and heart-warming that there are others! Others just like me! I hung on the wedding pages when I was planning my big day but this is the perfect place for me now!
I ache to have a baby. I have always wanted to have a family. After 9 years together ( 3 of those married) we are so ready for the next chapter. I spend way too much time reading about ttc, pregnancy, babies and parenting. My brain really is in ‘baby mode’.
We are stable financially and have decided that this year will be the year. He has promised to ask me to stop BC in 2013 but won’t tell me when exactly…. Frustrating! I dont want to push too much but I’m hoping it will be for my birthday in April.
Age: me 27 him 30
when are you starting to ttc? 2013 is all I know!
what are you doing now to get ready to ttc? Reading, planning and trying to go to the gym more( not vey successfully…)
what are you looking forward to most about ttc? Just knowing that we’re on the path to be parents….I want more than anything to be a mum.
favourite dessert? Chocolate fondant, And creme brûlée mmmmmm

mmmm creme brulee.
Is anyone else really close with someone who is currently pg? A coworker of mine is and everyday it seems like I have a new craving for something obscure. Sympathy cravings 🙁 It drives me nuts. Ahh.

What an awesome idea for a thread! I’ve had serious baby fever since getting married in October. It doesn’t help that we were among the last of our friends to get married and literally FOUR of my close friends are pregnant. I’m happy for them but must admit I have cried privately after learning the news. It’s so hard to wait.
Off to join Pinterest and start a secret baby board….
Age: 31, Destination Wedding is 30

What are you looking forward to most about TTC?: I just can’t wait to become a family.

Great idea! I’m very clucky but have to hold off TTC until moving back home and getting married later in the year. It’s nice to know there are a bunch of us here 🙂
Age: 33, Fiance is 30
When are you starting to TTC?: We are holding off until we get back home to Australia (July) and are married (probably Dec) We currently live in Toronto and I don’t want to have a baby here without any family/Friends support.
What are you doing now to get ready to TTC?: I work out a few times per week and recently started taking a multivitamin that has folic acid (I was excited to specifically look for this type of multi) I haven’t been on BC for ages. I also chart everything as I’m a little worried about my age. If there is a problem I will have a year of data ready to roll for the doc.
What are you looking forward to most about TTC?: Ummm I look forward to the day I tell my Fiance we are pregnant. I know he will be insanely happy. I also look forward to him laying on my tummy listening to our baby grow. I know he will be the best & most protective father and husband so I look forward to the time when the three of us are together. Decorating the babies room will be fun too!
For fun, what’s your favorite dessert?: Cheese! and Wine! (I am really going to struggle not being able to drink and eat cheese when pregnant)

Age: turning 27 this year, Fiance is turning 29
When are you starting to TTC?: I think he is ready anytime, but I always said I wanted to be married 1-2 years first to enjoy being married. HOWEVER, since moving in together a few months ago, and now that the wedding is approaching I am definitely starting to feel baby fever. I would be happy NTNP later this year, and really TTC at our one year mark.
What are you doing now to get ready to TTC?: Eating healthy, exercising, stopping BC after the wedding and start taking pre-natals.
What are you looking forward to most about TTC?: Having unprotected sex without the worry!! hahaha. Also I can’t wait to be a mom, and have a baby that we created, and that looks like us!
For fun, what’s your favorite dessert?: Frozen Yogurt!

I’m just wondering how long everyone will have been together before they ttc? Not married necessarily, but solidly together.
I always hear the ‘we want to enjoy being married for a while….’ all that goes through my head is ‘We’ve been together for five years, and I plan to continue enjoying him for the rest of the years to come :/’

We’ll have been married a year and 3 or 4 months and together 2 years and 3 or 4 months. We started dating in April 2011, bought a house together in July 2011 and moved in September 2011. Long story, but given the circumstances that’s just how it happened! We’ve been living together almost our entire relationship so I don’t feel like we need to “enjoy being married” x amount of time before baby. Honestly, not much has really changed since we got married!

Thanks for letting me know it’s not just me. I’ve tried talking to some friends about it, but they don’t seem to ‘get it’.
On a side note, I’m also stoked that your Canadian (as well)…. I always feel like we are so few and far between on these kind of boards 🙂
Post # 162
Yeah, it always seems like there are less of us around on the internet! 😉
Personally, I could see wanting to “enjoy marriage first” if you were the type of couple who never lived together before marriage. Living together is a who new ballgame and I would want to get settled into that before bringing babies in. Just personal opinion of course! 🙂

I totally agree if you haven’t lived together before…. maybe that is what is it. Husband and I are also the first out of our friends and family to get married (won’t be another wedding until 2014), there is just no one (in person) to relate to.
Thank for induldging me

We have been together for a decade, but have only lived together since before christmas (before that we lived with our parents). So even though we have been dating for a long time, living together brings out an entirely new aspect of our relationship, which I love. We have been spending all this time planning for the move, planning the wedding etc, that it will be nice to relax and enjoy it all for a little while before the planning of the baby and the change that it will bring to our new lifestyle.
I can understand that couples who have been living together for a long time and already had that experience to not feel like the need the ‘just married’ time. For us, our ‘dating but living with our parents’ lifestyle is so different from our ‘engaged couple owning a home together’ lifestyle that we just want to live it up a little longer 🙂

we’re going to TTC in april and we’ll have been together for 5 years, married for 1y4m.

My husband and I dated for 3 years before we were married. And we’ve been married for 2 1/2 years. I wanted to “just be married” for a while before kids for a few reasons. Mostly we did not live together until we were married so that was an adjustment. Plus I wanted to enjoy the dual income no kids phase for a while. This also included working to pay down student loan debt and taking several vacations. I know I can do those things after kids but I also know they get harder so I just wanted time to be selfish. 🙂
And I have a secret pinterest baby board too. I’m less concerned about my friends knowing about my baby plans but I REALLY don’t want my family to know. Both my family (especially my mom) and DH family can be a bit overbearing.
