Uh oh....

So, I have severe baby fever.  Typically, I cure baby fever by hanging out with all the little kids in my family. Yesterday, I spent the morning with my cousin, his wife and their two kids (both under the age of 3).  I managed to get a massive migraine from spending so much time with the kids, but once that passed, I was back to baby fever.

Pretty sure this time it's not going away.  Doug says "No." Every time I mention it. Although, I think he likes the stories I was telling him about the kids yesterday.

Oh boy, I'm in trouble.  We're not going to start TTC for a little over a year. GAH

  • Oh, Jill, not you too!

    I think Stees and I are the only 2 around here without the fever anymore....

  • Michael refers to me at the one who didn't get bitten by the baby bug, i'm the one who has the baby monster chewing on my arm... Its bad, so bad.  I'm addicted to the nursery design websites,  i opened a savings account for baby$, i'm trying to get an Aflac policy (crappy company)... bad bad bad

    I've had the fever for a while, but I've done a great job at playing it off like I didn't have it.  I now think I'm doomed.

    Ahem.  I do not have baby fever.  At all.  (Though my friend's new baby girls are awfully cute.)

    The only reason we're going to stop using birth control entirely in August/September is because I'd rather get pregnant sooner than later in case my cervical dysplasia decides to rear its ugly head again in the next few years.  I want to be done having kids in a few years in case it gets severe and I need more LEEPs and or a potential hysterectomy.  If that weren't the case, I'd have no problem waiting until I was 30 to start having kids.

  • I don't have it either, I like drinking wine far too much to want to be pregnant.?Also, the idea of being a slave to another person's schedule makes me angry and bitter. I'm too selfish to be a mom right now, and I'm very glad to recognize that.?

    I like thinking about our theoretical children, but I don't want them in our lives right now.

    I definitely don't have the fever.  I definitely did have a hangover this morning and baby crying would not have helped the situation.

    Took the words out of my mouth.  Especially the wine thing.  Um, and the slave thing.  Um, and Tela's post about sleeping in.  I'm so glad I'm not the only "selfish" one out there.  However, since we DO want kids eventually, I kind of have to weigh my current selfish desires with what may be best for my health.  (Although right now H might agree that wine is the best thing for my sanity, so God help me when I'm not allowed to drink it.) :)

  • Sorry ladies, my memory had lapsed! I'm still holding strong on the no baby fever. I had cookies and diet coke for breakfast 3 days this week - I am in no shape to care for another human being!

    And wine, delicious wine. Nope.

    I can get jealous of the fun that caused a hangover, but never, ever of the hangover. My hangovers generally involve ?me not being able to keep food or liquids down for 24hrs or more, not to mention the headache. ("food poisoning", yeah, that's it)

  • image steeser03:

    actually i dont get hangovers so i dont really know what its like.

     WHAT?  Even if you drink a TON the night before?  You are so lucky.  I can get hungover off 3 beers.  Three martinis is usually bad news too. Oddly, wine, even almost a whole bottle, is the least likely to give me a terrible hangover.  (I still get hungover, it's just more tolerable with wine.)

    And you mentioned Andy keeps mentioning getting you pregnant...have you talked him down from there yet? :)

    Hmm well maybe we should have a flamefull because I had copius amounts of wine with the ILs which is how said hangover happened!  DH was out of town last night and I had something to go to so they were babysitting the dog for me.  I hung out and drank with them before going home.  And then I ate ramen.  (seriously, love it)

    I get hangovers so freaking easy.  Don't envy the hangover!!!!  Wink

    no. not even on my 21st birthday which was the only time in my life i ever blacked out from drinking ( i also threw up in my bf's hood of his sweatshirt while he carried me up the stairs, threw my shoes away in a garbage can because i was convinced that was why i couldnt walk straight, put my arms through the toilet seat so i couldnt be made to go to bed, and woke up inside the tv entertainment stand- with one door closed and my legs hanging out the other side).

    i wouldnt say that he keeps mentioning it. but all this stuff keeps happening like the doctor, we got a pamphlet from our health insurance on conceiving, when i went to get my depo they thought i was there for an ultrasound, the store was out of all womens vitamins except prenatal and i need a new bottle of my daily, we got a babies r us flyer in our mailbox, etc etc etc... so he's like "all the signs are saying we should! but i dont want to!"

    he doesnt want it, he just keeps pointing out all of this stuff which is annoying me.

    um, I SO do not have baby fever.  Although i almost had a scare this week, AF took her sweet time getting here and I was panicking pretty hard.  Made me want to go back to a double-dose of BC.

    Scott and I both do this.  We're both excited to have kids, just not right now.

  • Jill, welcome to the baby fever club! Smile

    I've gone so far as to pick out everything I want from Target. I was *this close* to making a registry under a fake name...  but then I figured that would be borderline insane.

    ?

    They have a new pattern called "Melanie" that I think is the one that I'm going to go with. Everything for girls is pink and brown right now, which I'm kind of sick of, but I guess I'll have to deal. *lol*

    ?I've been given a swing and a bouncer seat thing, as well as a TON of clothes, so I don't really need clothes at all. But I still want to buy her a couple of outfits, like special occasion stuff. I want to pick out the outfit she comes home in and stuff like that.??

  • Umm.....yea. I've got baby fever too. Dammit. Never wanted kids and then J's accident put a whole new perspective on life for me. It doesn't help that a lot of my friends either JUST had a kid, are pregnant or are trying to get pregnant.

     We actually have a TTC plan too....and I picked out our crib the other night when we had to go to Babies R Us for a gift for our friend's kid.
