It didn’t happen for me right after we got married but yes the Baby Fever set in fast when we finally decided we did want kids.  I did find myself browsing baby stuff online and definitely stalking the TTC and pregnancy boards on here.

Change of heart ?

It can happen…

And it is natural.

Being in LOVE isn’t just emotional… it is also hormonal.

Finding yourself wanting to have a baby with a person you love is completely normal… and YES it can be a HUGE deal

When I was in high school, college, uni etc I was the gal who said… Take it or leave it… I like my life the way it is

Kids “looked to be” a lot of worries, troubles etc

BUT after I got married, I fell in love with the idea of seeing little MissMe and little MrHim running around

So within 3 years I got pregnant with baby # 1 (good timing, as it was nice to have some just US time… mind you we were in our early 20s when we married)

No regrets when it came to our kids… kids were great

Lots of regrets about my first marriage… it wasn’t the best… looking back I believe we got married too young (but then so did everyone else in the 1980s).  Never gave myself enough time to grow up / find myself.  Waiting 2 or 3 years more would have made a bigger difference I think… mid to late 20s.

Hope this helps,

PS… It almost sounds like you are experiencing a “sentimental / sympathetic” pregnancy.  You body has your mind fooled… because it is thinking that it might be nice to be pregnant

@BruBright:  the exact same thing happened to me and i can’t even have children but my maternal instincts were kicking in.  i think it’s because we shared that special day, felt so much love and connection that we wanted to spread that love in the most logical way.  it must be a natural feeling for some people.

for me, it’s been a year (next weekend) and those feelings have subsided.

@BruBright:  Well, my wedding is still about 6 months away so I don’t know how much my opinion matters lol but before we got engaged we knew we wanted to have a baby in the next few years but didn’t really talk about it much. Then we got engaged in September and talked about trying for a baby next year. But NOW, the more we’re getting into our wedding planning and everything his baby making talk has kicked into high gear and wants to try for a baby on our honeymoon. Which is fine with me! But it’s funny how that works… I think it’s from all of the love and the feeling of closeness as you’re going through this new chapter in your lives together. It’s so exciting!
