Baby Fever

Baby fever has officially struck our household. And surprisingly it wasn't me that it hit.

Around Christmas it was me that was wanting to start expanding our family. M disagreed and wanted to wait a few more years. So for months I tried to press the issue but M wouldn't budge. So I gave up hope. Then when M left I was surprised that I came to the realization that there were a lot of things I wanted to do before we started a family. I couldn't wait for M to come home and we could take last minute getaways, go out on the town and just enjoy each other. One day when M called I told him about my realization. M had other thoughts. His response, oh I want to start trying for a family when I come home. I was shocked and mad at first. I def was against it. Many thoughts ran through my head. I'm only 26, I'm too young, there's so many things I want to do before we start a family. M was surprised that I wanted to wait. Don't get me wrong, I love kids and def want to be a mom but now all of a sudden when M said he was ready I started backing away.

It all changed a few weeks ago. I went to a friend's pampered chef party and I was the only one there without kids. And it didn't bother me. In fact, I felt like I was the one missing out and I knew then and there I was ready.

SO it looks like once M comes home Operation Baby will commence. We even have a trip to the DOminican Republic planned that M has dubbed our baby moon.

I did start reading What to Expect Before your Expecting. I had to put it down. Reading about everything that could be wrong with your or could go wrong. NO way. As someone who has high anxiety as it is I had to put the book away. So now I'm going to let nature take it's course and go along with what God is planned for us and let it happen the natural way without freaking out about something before it happens.

So baby fever has struck. I even bought my first baby outfit for our yet to be kid. Call me crazy!!!

  1. Haha, you're so cute! I love the idea of a "baby moon." Jerad has had some baby fever lately, but I'm just not ready. Maybe after we move to Oklahoma :)

  2. Hahaha! I'm still waiting for my hubby to be hit with baby fever. =) BUT, since he's deploying for a year, I'm gonna go ahead and get off the pill. And then when he comes home, if I get preggo, I get preggo! {For the record, he knows that I'm going off of it while he's gone. =)}

  4. Ahh, baby fever. :) I just found out I'm pregnant 2 weeks ago, and up until that point, my husband was the one with the baby fever. I had it, but not as bad as him! I read What to Expect Before You're Expecting, and actually finished it the day before I found out I was pregnant. Talk about good timing! :)

  6. My hubby is the one more interested in babies right now, although we've talked about it and have come to the general consensus that we're going to wait awhile longer!

    Congrats on coming to that big decision though. "baby moon" cracks me up!

  11. Aww yay, that is great! I know what you mean about reading the What to Expect book. I was the same way and finally had to stop reading. My pregnancy has been fine. SO don't worry about it, like you said God is in control! Good luck! :)

  14. Yes, God is definitely in control! Don't worry about the scary stuff that "could" be "wrong" with you in the books and on the internet. One thing I would do, though, is start counting your days. If you have an Android phone, the myDays app is perfect for it. I started using it last Summer and lo and behold, THIS Summer I'm having a baby! Haha.

  15. We DEFINTELY were not trying to get pregnant but it happened and after mourning the loss (so to speak) of all our grand plans of the "just us" years - we are really excited!
    Anyway, The first advice I got from a friend was "do not read What to Expect!" Of course my older sister sent me a copy so I started reading it...took me about an hour to be totally freaked the eff out! I hid it in a box not to be unpacked for the next 6 months haha. Try the Mayo Clinic book (awesome) or Baby 411 (all the facts, not scary.)

  19. Very exciting! Good luck!!

  20. How fun! My hubs and I were the same way. I would want a baby, then he would... finally one day we agreed that we BOTH wanted a baby at the SAME TIME. That's when it all began. But seriously.... we went back and forth for about 5 years before our timing leveled out.

    I was a HUGE reader when I became pregnant. Honestly, I loved it. I knew what to expect and didn't panic about so much because I knew it was nothing major. You can never be too prepared... it's impossible. :)
