Hi hun, I know how you feel have you tried any mini projects to distract you? I am also in the process of buying a house, and I will admit that that has distracted me A LOT! Have you looked at houses for sale on the Internet in your area? That's always fun. I've also been able to distract myself with ideas on how I am going to paint the rooms, decorating, looking at home decor stuff, remodelling the kitchen, how I am going to plant my garden and with flowers. Becoming a home owner can be just as exciting as preparing for a new baby But if you really can't defeat it, you could always look online at baby naming site, make a list of first and middle names for your future kids, or looking on this site at all the birthing and parenting possibilities out there so that you can be a bit more mentally prepared for when it finally happens

I feel the same way! We have been counting down the days until our wedding (4 months from now) and it is only making me want a baby more and more! One of the things that is keeping me on my pill though is the honeymoon. I want to FULLY enjoy it!! Hehe!
Then we would like to finish school, make more money... etc. You know the usual things.

What kills me though is seeing my friends babies, seeing my hunny interacting with their babies and thinking about how wonderful he will be with our babies. I want that so badly right now!!

So glad to see I'm not alone.
I'm competing my masters too (ends dec 2014) then I return to full time work again no study woohoo!! We have been saving to buy a house and trying to keep the broodyness at bay until I finish this course and our house savings are a little more full. We have been together for 5 years and have both been broody from day one really but recently a lot of friends / family are having babies not sure if that has kicked the broodyness up a notch? I have good days when a happily think of all the good times to come and look at prams etc then the bad days are filled wih frustration and a longing feelin. Which isn't so much fun at these times I count my blessings and I remind my self how fortunate I am to be in a loving relationship to have a good career great family and this kinda brings me back down slightly. Focusing on exercising, taking my folic acid , eating healthy also helps me feel like every day I'm getting one step closer to meeting my baby
Good luck on ur journeys all xxxx

I know how you feel! We have been together for 5 years+, are engaged and both 21 (actually my birthday today ) And we struggle everyday!
A lot of our friends have kids and have now formed a mummy club which is only for mummys. That makes it even worse, combine that with the majority of my facebook being pregnant, me working with kids, seeing them everywhere, OH sister being pregnant it has become fairly difficult! Especially because I was like a mum to my nephew (still have that bond withe ach other) but my sister has decided she wants to be a mostly full on mum again (i still have him 1 night a week and some evenings but nothing compared to what I use to have him) so I'm struggling with not seeing the child that I have the mother/son bond with. I know people will say "you aren't his mum" but I did the mum role most of his life, we love each other like mother/son and it is so hard for me and him to not have this contact, it would have been better to gradually decrease the contact but she jumped into it and today on my birthday I just cried a lot because I missed him so much, she ended up coming up and it made my whole day. I feel like a mother that doesn't have a child and it makes me so sad!
BUT we aren't financially ready! I work 2 jobs but that is so i can afford to go back to college. My OH didn't get his contract renewed so is also going back to college. I mean we live with my mum (moved back) but we have 3 bedrooms, one is spare and mum has been hinting we should fill that room
Only tips that help me, prepare and remember it is all for your baby. Although he/she doesn't yet exist you are doing it for them because you love them. I use to try ignore it but ow i embrace it, i research different parenting styles/breastfeeding etc and look up how much everything costs and look at what happens week by week I book things to look forward too, i try make these things I wouldn't do if pregnant, like going abroad and stuff
