The "B" Word

It has hit me....Baby Fever. I know everyone thought Chris and I would never have a child but we want one now...at some point in our life. We wanted one before everything happened to Dax but it has been put on the back burner and now sometime in the next year or so the wheels will start moving again. 

I used to be one of those people that would get sick of reading baby post and hated hearing about kids. I would tell people I was never going to have one and I hated when someone would ask us if we wanted one. I am not sure what happened to change my mind. All I can really say is literally..it is like one day a switch flipped on and my clock went HEYYYYY it is time lady. 

I have a secret baby board on pinterest hidden away from the world, we have names for a boy/girl. (I won't share my names..sorry)We talk about all this stuff but we are not even trying yet. I have everything planned out in my head from the room to the baby shower. I know I don't get to plan it but I will be giving hints to the people planning it.

 We have been married almost 4 years now and together 7. We feel like its the right time but it is such a scary step. I know we will never be fully prepared but who really is ready for this? You can prepare as much as you want and you will never be as ready as you think you are. That is what everyone is telling me. 

I have a ton I have to do before I can ever start trying, medicines I have to get off of for my migraines, blood pressure and stuff. I want to lose some weight and be healthier. I never thought I would be one to think of these things but I am. Who knew!! I know the date I even plan to start trying. I literally have it all planned out...I am a little OCD about it all. 

Am I the only semi-newly wed going through this?

  2. Good luck! Also remember while you have it all planned out in your head be ready for a few surprises, and just roll with them. It will make the trying and having so much more enjoyable.

  4. I just wrote you a huge comment and it disappeared! Lol. Anyway... we are SO much alike. I'm an OCD planner person like you. I have a lot planned out in the baby department too. And I get a lot of crap for it because I should just "let fate take it's course, and leave everything in God's hands" which I do to an extent... until the OCD kicks in! Haha. Oh boy. I think we are both in for a rude awakening when we do have kids because all the planning goes out the window, so I hear! lol

  5. You go, girl! That's fantastic that you now want kids! And it's totally acceptable to be completely planned as far as all things baby goes - just as long as you also accept that your plans will most likely change. :) Good luck, girl!

  6. My best friend and her husband haven't been married two years yet and their first is due in April! You're not alone! I'm single and still get baby fever (hence the reason I have a dog). You would be the funnest mom!!

  9. I totally know the "baby fever" feeling. I also am an OCD planner.... so let me tell you when NOTHING went as planned and we couldnt get pregnant I was a disaster. Having a plan is good but know that it may not go as planned and that is ok too!
