@PARISviaROME:  I think it’s been a process. It started with “I want a couple years to enjoy my marriage” which turned into “I can’t wait to start a family in the far future”, which then turned into “actually maybe I don’t want to wait too much longer”, which THEN became “ok now I have baby fever bad!” It’s hard to explain, but I also just felt ready.

I didn’t feel ready immediately after getting married, though my DH did! I wanted at least a year to enjoy being newlyweds. I ended up caving a few months early because I realized we’re not getting any younger and it could take some time to get pregnant. I still wouldn’t say I feel 100% ready to be a mom, but I’m not sure I ever will and I don’t want to miss my chance.

Watching DH with the neighbourhood kids pretty much sealed the deal for me (they love him and he’s so good with them!).  🙂

I already had baby fever a bit and I think it’s partly to do with my age (I’m 30).  There’s nothing else I want to do right now!

My husband asked me that the other day. I honestly don’t know how I know. I think it’s a bunch of little signs, like gushing when my DH plays with kids, wanting to hold every baby I see, reading pregnancy blogs, things I didn’t notice or do until the last 6 months or so. It’s weird how the change in me just sort of happened.

Actually really thinking about your question (and my DH’s too), I think I went into baby overdrive when I was convinced I was pregnant a few months back. I was a week late  with my period, and I was certain I had symptoms. It’s crazy how attached i got to what I believed was in my stomach. Before that I entertained the thought of a baby, but after thinking I was pregnant and getting attached like I did, I was like, omg, I really want a baby….now! DH is still teetering on when he’s ready..that’s been hard for me.

After we got married we wanted to enjoy our newlywed time. That was really important for me, for at least 7 or 8 months. But then suddenly we realized that we were ready. We got to know very well our day to day routines as well as weekends so we knew a baby could fit in our lives. It was a huge surprise when we found out we were pregnant a month before we were going to start TTC. I’m 7 weeks now and still in shock that a baby is growing inside of me. It was like ‘ready or not, here I come’ lol

@PARISviaROME:  In my mind, I always felt ready to be a mom, but once the right guy came along and the relationship was strong, I knew it is time. It didn’t hurt that I had my education down and accomplished pretty much what I wanted before becoming pregnant. 

We got pregnant after 8 months of being married (but dated each other and lived together for 5 years before that).

Weve been Married for 3 years and I always told my self I want to live out my 20’s and enjoy married life before considering kids.

Well on my 30th bday I went for a gyno check up and they found some scary cervical cancerous stuff in me.

I went through the procedures and thank god all turned out good.

While I was going through all these Dr appointments I thought to myself, WOW what if I cant have kids? what if this prevents me from having a baby?

That sorta woke me up, its different when you CHOOSE not to have kids, its another when the decision is made for you.

After getting a clean bill of health this year we began the TTC process!
