Its Official...

Yesterday I posted pictures of my kids from the past 3 years. I'm not going to lie, it made me sad. It all happens too fast and my BABY is now a toddler.

Its been building for a while now, but I officially have baby fever. Bad. IF we stayed on the same "timeline", we'd get pregnant in about a month. However, I know that can't happen. We desperately need to move before I get pregnant so I can help move as much as possible. We also plan on building our next house and living with my parents while building. I want to take a baby home to our own house, not crammed in with everyone else at my parent's. :)

If this house hasn't been sold by the spring, I may have to start trying for #3 anyway. We'll figure something out. Everyone just keep your fingers crossed for me that we hurry and sell this house. I don't want my kids to have a big age gap and at this rate, I have no clue when we're finally going to sell and move.

Anyone else with baby fever?  I wish I could turn it off and not want another so badly right now. :)

Pin It!

Oh boy I hear ya! I have baby fever BAAAAD. Doesn't help that we've been trying for 11 cycles with no success. Ah well. Good luck with the house sale so you add to your family :)

We would like #2 but like you are trying to sell our house. we want to move across the US. I'll cross my fingers for you. do the same for us. Our house has been on the market for over a year :(

We decided not to have anymore kids. Plus we don't have room right now anyway. But I have a lot of friends who are pregnant. It has definitely caused baby fever with me!

I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

I understand not wanting to move while pregnant. We recently moved and it was the second time we've moved while I've been pregnant. Watching my hubby move the entire house by himself (no joke) is frustrating.

I have baby fever BAD, BAD, BAD! I have no children and my fiance has one. He's a good bit older than I am and I feel like if we don't have a baby now we may not have one. However, our living situation is unstable and we are not yet married. I'd rather stick to my plan, but I can't help but wonder if my plan is too much and maybe I should just go with the flow. I play with my friends kids all the time and every time I give them back I just long for my own that I can keep and love and raise. Good luck girl!

I have WICKED baby fever! I'm giving it to my hubby bit by bit. I don't want my kids to have a huge age gap but my stepdaughter will be 5 in December, and my daughter will be 2 in March. We already have a deadline of my daughters third birthday to start trying, but we need a house first and I need to work at a better job (hopefully where my hubby works) to be able to afford all the spoiling. It's so hard not to just go with the flow...

You know what's weird? I ALMOST posted a comment yesterday about you getting pregnant again and I refrained. Now here you go talking about it! LOL

Best of luck with your plans!

I’m suffering from the fever as well. We were hoping to start trying this month, but doctor found a bump on my thyroid in August. We had to wait until all of my tests came back ok (which they did so far). I’m still waiting on the scan, but they expect it be normal just like everything else. We want to wait a few months because they gave me a radioactive iodine treatment. They said it is safe to start TTC right away, but I tend to be on the paranoid side and want to make sure it’s 100% out of my system. So hopefully January will be our first & last month TTC :) Waiting is torture though. A friend just had her baby this morning. Not helping my baby itch one bit ;)

I had baby fever after I stopped nursing this summer. I soon dismissed it when I thought about how many carseat's we would need, space, money and time. I get stressed with just the two we have. I love them to pieces though. It seems like we have four kids sometimes because we watch our nephews two days out of the week.

I brought baby #3 home to my parents because we were selling our house, fortunately it sold right after she was born and we only had baby at my parents for 2 months. Not ideal but in the grand scheme of thing no big deal. Good luck selling your house.

Things always work out. Maybe not the way we want but they always do in the long run. Sending "hope your house sells fast" wishes your way!!

Ha ha, I had Baby Fever right up until my first grandbaby was born. I feel for you, it is so hard to want a baby and have to wait due to due to the situation. Fingdrs crossed the house thing works out.

Well, DH was done with Chloe (3) and John (2) but this summer, I got baby fever and we're now expecting baby # 3 due in May :)

I wanted to have ours close too :)

Baby fever is worse when you are in a situation where its best to wait--like in your case with the house. It seems to come on SO MUCH STRONGER then! LOL! We were the same way, and we did it (living with our parents while our 2nd was born & we were renovating). Is it ideal? no. Is it doable? Absolutely! You'll get pregnant when the timing is right for everyone & everything!

I'm hoping your house sells quickly.

I totally have baby fever now!

I actually have the opposite problem. I have a daughter who is 21 months old, and I'm not ready to have a second baby yet. However, I am not young, and my husband is 15 years older than me, so we can't really wait any longer. So we are working on a second baby now. I know that I will be happy (and I definitely have some moments of extreme excitement), but at the same time, I keep thinking about how sad it will be to have to share my time with another baby, and not devote myself completely to my daughter. I'm just trusting that I'll love the second one as much as the first, and I won't be sorry later. I know I won't, but still.

I also wanted to share what I once read in response to someone wanting everything to be in place in their life to start their family. The response was essentially that if they waited until everything was perfect--money, time, etc--they would never have that family. There would always be something that's not "perfect," and their suggestion to that person was to do what their heart felt was right. Now, I'm not saying go get pregnant, because you have some specific issues, but I *am* saying, if something should happen, you should try to be at peace with it, because in the end, there will be that wonderful little baby, and nothing else will be nearly as important as that.

I got a touch of it today! I was looking at a picture of my cousin holding her newborn, who was sound asleep on her... oh my goodness. That made me want another right now. We're done, and I'm cool with that, but I do get baby fever!! House selling vibes coming your way. We just went through that.

I was in your shoes and it felt horrible. Worse when my husband said "NO MORE BABIES!". I prayed and prayed that he would have a change of heart or I would get rid of the super sad feeling of not having any more kids. And although they are further apart than I thought I wanted, when our 4th came along (yes, dh had a change of heart! YAY!) I was beyond thrilled and it is perfect. The perfect time will come for you too!
Can't wait to hear the good news when it comes! =)
