I set out to find a discussion board for some support and I'm hoping you all can help! I'm 21 and am getting married to my best friend (he's 22) in 26 days! We bought our first house this year and are just sort of enjoying life. We've talked before about children and both want them but agreed "not now."
The thing is I'm one of those girls who has wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember and you know that feeling just doesn't ever go away...and guys just don't get it. I started babysitting as soon as I was old enough, have been a nanny, and the only job I've ever had is a being a daycare teacher...I gave up school because I couldn't give up being a daycare teacher - it's what I love.
Many of our friends and/or family members are pregnant or recently have had kids (most of which were unplanned/unexpected) and it kills me to see them with their babies. I saw another post with the subject 'all I think about are babies" and that's really how I feel. We went to see one of our best friends in the hospital recently after they had their first baby and when we came home I just cried...
Soon-to-be-husband just keeps pushing the 'not now' speech...he wants to live life a little first and get our feet under ourselves a little more, etc. I don't disagree with him but I am going crazy!! I really don't know what to do with myself. I can't talk to him about it, one of my best friends already has two kids, and the other has no plans of having kids anytime soon if at all so I have no one to turn to - please help!
