Having to tell myself to wait every day

I am having baby fever baaaaaadddd. And DS is not quite 6 months yet. I have to tell myself daily that we need to wait at least another year or so to even try! I want to enjoy him being a baby, and all his firsts. But at the same time, I want another so bad :( It's driving my up the wall!

Am I crazy, or does any one else have to do this?

Re: Having to tell myself to wait every day

  • This. ALL of this is me. DH and I both want to start trying again right now, but are waiting a bit so I can BF DS longer and recover from my first pregnancy.... trying to be responsible and all. I'm not sure we'll make it out the year. :P

  • I have baby fever off and on. I have so many friends that just had a baby or are having a baby soon. I miss being prego, my pregnancy was great. And I miss the tiny newborn stage. My DH is in no hurry, so I keep telling myself I need to wait.

  • I love DS so much that sometimes I think, why'd we wait so long to have him? I get anxious to have our family "complete" so we can spend as much time together as possible. If that makes sense.

    We're going to enjoy this time, and I assume we'll have our hands full as DS gets mobile, so that should help us wait another year and a 1/2 before TTC. 

    But yeah, I love the babies.

  • Ever since Jack hit 3 months and went from being a newborn gremlin to a sweet baby i have wanted #2!  But, I had a stupid c-section and doc  said I should wait at least 9 months to try, especially if I want a VBAC. Booooooo. And, yes...I know I am crazy!  ;)

  • Definitely not alone on this one! I will go as far as to say we are 110 percent one and done. We love our son dearly, but I have no desire for future pregnancies or babies.

    ETA: In response to those who said they are in no rush.
  • My DH wants to start trying before DD is a year and I'm not so sure. My DD and I have a great BFing relationship and really want to give her the opportunity to self wean after a year. I'm concerned about my milk drying up if I get preggo because it happens to a lot of women around 12 weeks.

    LOL you totally should have.  I KNOW I'm crazy.  I swear it's hormonal because baby fever is raging right now and I'm PMSing.

    No thank you!!! One is wayyyy more than enough right now!

  • I also have baby fever. I have to keep telling myself that I need to wait. I too want to enjoy our little girl's first and just enjoy our time with her. I also know, personally, that I do not want two little ones on bottles and in diapers at the same time. So personally I want to wait until our little on is either 3 years old or 5 years old. That's just me. I'm also trying to finish up my Associates degree, so I know two little ones would just be too much right now. But I definitely have baby fever. My husband and I joke around about starting the baby rush. A lot of our friends started getting pregnant and having babies after we had our little girl. lol. You are definitely not alone on the baby fever front.

  • I would love to have another soon, I loved being pregnant. My pregnancy was really easy and my son turned out to be a very easy-going, happy baby - this makes me think my next child will be a little terror lol!

    Fiance is not having any baby talk at this point and sometimes he wishes we would be one and done, I definitely want one more though.

    Back when DS was a newborn and I was going through pp blues, I would have killed to be pregnant right then and there. Now? I'm happy to wait for my body to heal and for DS to be older first. DH is ready for me to be pregnant again or at least jokes about it. We talk about more kids, but we certainly can't afford daycare for 2.

    You are not alone! Though I am probably in the minority that we are OAD for sure 110%!

    I have had this exact thought process. DS is such a good baby, I'm almost scared to see how our next would be!
    I think some of me also just wants to have all this baby time over with. "Pop 'em out" and get it done, as to say!

  • How can you have baby fever when you already have one??

     I had to get newborn amnesia in order to want another because if I remember how hard it is the first 12 weeks, I would have never had DD. lol

    But now I'm pretty sure I'm done.  It's so much more fun when they're older and they let you sleep in.  I look forward to that again soon.

    This is kinda us. Don't get me wrong if I found out I was pregnant today I would be ecstatic. But, our lease is up end of the year, R's original edd actually haha, and we want to start looking at homes. DH is working hard to convince me that we need to wait until we get out of our 2 bedroom apt. My mom watches R now 4 days a week and says she doesn't know if she could watch 2u2.

    I wouldn't say we are busting at the seams, thank goodness for my parents and this is all part of the reason I went back to work. 30 hours a week.

    No rush here, either. Hell, I got the the two for one special the first time around, so I figure that buys me some time, no?

    Bahaha! This is me exactly. The only thing I miss is newborn cuddles. My DH keeps saying "lets just get it over with!" And he definitely doesn't understand the whole I just got my body back and he gets to be gone for 24 hrs at a time for work while I nearly go outta my mind somedays!

     love DD to pieces but she's more than enough for the time being!

    Haha, totally with you sbevmc. I was wondering if any of these mamas that have baby fever have two and are fever-ing for a third. My guess would be no. :) but I was totally like this after my first! She was such an easy baby, and I couldn't wait to get pregnant with #2. Now, pretty sure we're done. :)

    fwiw, we're still in a 2BR apt now, and it's pretty tiny. We have baby in our room still, although I've been putting them in the same room for naps during the day. It works totally fine right now, but we'll most likely be in a house in a couple of months, God-willing. I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but it's totally doable! :) :)

    I have baby fever bad too!  We know that we are trying for #3 at the end of this year though.  We'd start trying in another couple of months, but I have a few more lbs I want to lose and I'm going on vacation with my mom in early November.  Since I want to drink on my kid and husband free vacation, we won't be starting to try until I get back from that.

    Even though I know all of these reasons why we need to wait, I really, really don't want to!
