Baby Fever

12/13/2011

So I'm posting today to talk about everyones favorite topic...
well my families favorite topic anyways,
babies.

I kid you not, I get asked at least once every week if I'm preggo!
You would think they would be asking due to excessive/rapid weight gain, mood swings, bigger boobs... No.Nope.Notta. I have none of these signs/symptoms.

I think everyone asks me because they hope it's true...

and if I'm being completely, 100% honest,  apart of me wouldn't be upset if it were true.

Apart of me is the key phrase.


My friend Stephanie had her baby boy 4 weeks ago and I got to finally meet him this weekend!
He was everything I expected, he was absolutely perfect and SO precious.

I confess, that night I wanted one of my own more than ever.

Proof:
I also confess, I have an entire Pinterest board deticated to my 'Baby Fever' obsession.

 
However,
The hubs and I have a pretty good game plan... we like to call it the "2 year plan."

No matter how cute, sweet and cuddly babies are your life changes drastically once you have them.

I don't know if I'm completely ready to give up my freedom, my husband, "us" as a couple, or my 'selfish' ways quite yet...

So I think the two year plan is a perfect plan.

Sorry to disappoint...


So are any of you newlyweds ready for babies yet?!

  3. I've been married for 3 1/2 years and have a baby of my own (ok he's almost 3) and my entire family still asks/hopes/prays that I get pregnant again! It never ends :)

    But... I am extrememly baby hungry!!

  4. A 2 year plan is a good plan! My husband and I are waiting until we are both completely graduated for grad-school/college before we start a family. We have a puppy for our "baby fix". lol

  5. A 2 year plan is wonderful!! My husband and I got married in June and we are actually ready to start trying now! (Wish us luck... ha ha.) But I think it is all dependent upon where you are in your life/relationship. We have been together for almost 5 years, we have our home, and we are in a comfortable place financially. Doesn't mean I'm not nervous as heck though!!=)

    Keep us all posted!

    By the way, to keep up with the apparent trend... Are you pregnant? ha ha. Kidding! =)

  6. Oh my gosh, we get asked ALL the time, too!!! It's like an obsession with people once you are married. "Y'all pregnant yet?" I hear that all the time!! I think the 2 year plan is awesome!! We had a definitely no baby period of 1 year, Lord willing, of course! Haha! Now we are just over 1 year and are just waiting to see when God tells us that the timing is right!!

  7. We still have 4 months until we are married but we will probably be waiting at least a year until we are ready to try!

  11. Enjoy being married!! You have plenty of time. Brandon and I wanted to at least wait until after our first year so we had that time to emjoy being newlyweds. We'll share our babies with you!! :)

  12. Awww what a precious baby!!! And I totes know what you're saying; I'm in the exact same boat!! And my hubs and I have pretty much the same plan... We want to wait a few years, so we can have adequate "us" time. So important!! But, I do notice babies a lot more recently... lol... Every time I see a cute baby, I point it out to my hubs!! But I am soooo not ready for all of the other not-so-cute stuff that comes along with babies...

  13. I'm not married yet, won't be for a few months but i definitely agree, I think my fiance and I need some time as a married couple before kids, no matter how cute they can be!

  15. I feel ya girl, my mom was saying my husband and I were gonna be pregnant by Christmas (we got married in September) to her disappointment were going with the 2 year plan as well! I want a dog first before babies :)

  16. I got married April '09 and have had baby fever since then. No joke, I was talking about babies on the way to the honeymoon!

    The Mr. and I are definately ready but are waiting to pay off our house. It's hard but it will be worth it. Just a little longer : )

  17. I got married in July and we are already getting asked as well! (Luckily, it's not driving me too crazy yet....) We knew for a long time before we got married what our game plan was going to be--we want to have plenty of time to be a happy family the two of us before we become a happy family with more! Our plan is closer to the 4- or 5-year plan, but either way, I like the plan! :)

  19. we've been married a little over 2 years and we're still not ready ... i am seriously just too selfish and want him all to myself still ... one day but not rushing to get there.

  20. aw! we have been married almost 1 1/2 and we definitely want kids, but LOVE our time to ourselves too. :) Kids will come...

  21. Hey there. I was wondering how do you balance your life with your mother, father, and brother, aaand with your new husband? I know this is your first Christmas being married and out on your own...so I'm sort of in the same position. I love being with my fiance, but I also want family time. Advice?

  22. i kinda want to start but i also want to enjoy at least a full year of marriage before the babies come...but they are so cute aren't they!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I want to start too, but am torn if I should wait a little more since we just got married. Whatever happens will end up being perfect though.

  24. I have some serious baby fever and my wedding is 10 months away!! We're definitely going to have to curb this with puppies...hundreds of puppies!

    But y'all should totally ditch the 2 year plan and have one - I LOVE baby stories! ha

  25. Haha yeah, I know what you mean! My huge fear is I wouldn't know what to do with a baby. I was the youngest in my entire family so I have no clue how to handle them lol. Scary foreign objects, but so cute and lovable, too! For us we're waiting til I finish my doctorate, so we have a good 5 years. Assuming God's plan accords with our's, of course!

  26. Hehe, this is so funny to me because i too had a 2 year plan. I even had a whole notebook dedicated to sorting out our lives, finding a place to live, getting stable jobs and finishing studies to "build the nest" for little bambinos. And then... 7 months after we were married I found out we were expecting our first little one.
    We were totally unprepared, but I feel very ready and couldn't be more excited!

  27. I LOVE babies, and I love thinking of our lives with our own babies one day, but I don't think I have baby fever. I'm enjoying being a newlywed wayyy too much, and I know we'd rather focus on our careers, our house and each other for at least a few more years. Besides, hubby has tons of adorable lil' babies in his family I get my 'fix' from ;)

  28. You are preaching to the choir on this one! Subconsciously I know we are not quite ready yet, and I really do love the special time I have with my husband, but it doesn't stop me from melting every time I see a sweet baby! I just go play with other people's babies to get my "baby fix"!

  29. I almost wrote a similar post about this as people are already asking us about kids and we are not even hitched yet! I do want them but not for atleast a year after we are married, we want to travel and enjoy year one of marriage!

  30. I am the same way!! My husband and I just got married in July and I think my wedding night, baby fever hit me like a freight train. And it doesn't help at all that out of all my friends only like 3 of them doesn't have babies. I'm like you, my pinterest is filled with baby stuff! But I know as cute as they are I don't think I'm mentally ready for all the responsibilites that come along with those bundle of joys. So we are planning on waiting a few years to start as well! I want to travel and be able to drop everything to go somewhere spontaneous over night or something and you just can't do that with a baby.
