Ways to cope with baby fever
What do you go when your baby fever is raging and your patience is thinning? Do you have any tips or tricks that help cope with the wait?

Re: Ways to cope with baby fever
Lately I've been feeling really impatient. The only way I cope with the baby fever is by not thinking about it, focusing on the things I need to do before we TTC. Today is one of those days that none of that helps.

Re: Ways to cope with baby fever
Usually when I'm having really bad baby fever, I just have to wait for DD to start being naughty and my mind changes about having another one so soon.. haha.

I just keep reminding myself how much it will be worth it to wait a little longer, so my DD is older.

I find ways to distract myself. I get over to the gym and run my brains out on the treadmill or I take a long soaking bath with a good book.

I like to redirect my baby fever energy to the boards and to planning - ie pinterest, amazon, babies r us, etc. :) Or to other things that will get me closer to the goal like house shopping, lol.

Re: Ways to cope with baby fever
Sorry your baby fever has been so bad today :hug:.

I usually try like you to look at my lists of ''reasons to WTTC'', I see if there is something I can take action on immediately (for example order or see if the library has a parenting book I want to read) and do that to feel like I am helping TTC day come closer lol.

Otherwise, I try to keep busy and remind myself to enjoy the present and not just live in the future.

If all else fails, I let myself indulge in the baby fever, reading baby arrivals and looking at nursery pictures and ideas. Not sure if that is just aggravating the baby fever but it does feel good sometimes :rolleyes:.

Re: Ways to cope with baby fever
For the first time in a really long time I'm not thinking about it every single day! I have a lot of personal stuff going on and it has distracted me. Usually when it's really bad I lurk in the ddc's and that helps.

Re: Ways to cope with baby fever
I think it'll be better when we finally move and I can start taking on my to do list, so that I'm working towards it rather than being in limbo. I start school in about a week so I know that will be a huge helpful distraction. I tend to daydream, sometimes that helps. I know unless we wait at least until 2015 to ttc, I won't be able to accomplish everything I need to do to have the best possible outcome.
