How do you get rid of "baby fever"?

my boyfriend always talks about how he can't wait to start our own family, and I'm deeply in love with him. and lately seeing my cousins and family members pregnant and having kids is like making me a little jealous. I don't have any kids. and I'm not married ( yet ;p ) but I have a huuuuuuge urge to have a kid. how do I get rid of this!!!!

By realizing how much responsibility and time requires and watching how much life and fun it sucks out of a human being. Just wait until your family members have the kid and watch them when it turns a year old.

Maybe get some friends or a hobby? I'm not trying to be rude by that. Getting your mind off kids will be the most efficient thing

I have friends and hobbies. I'm constantly out with family and friends or home playing music or video games.

If you're olde than 21 why not volunteer at a children's hospital? (21 below requires a lot of paperwork, recommendations and is only available in summers at most hospitals

Be paitent. Use this time to try to be a better person, cause when the baby DOES come along, you want to be a good mama.

Babies cost A LOT of money! Is it in your budget? Not only the crib and stroller and other initial "start-up" costs, but diapers alone can put some people in the poor house. Plus clothes, wipes, powder, etc, etc, etc.....Then there goes your love life because you are too tired to brush your teeth, never mind anything else. And your social life is shot as well. Some places you can't take a baby, others you can but you need a stroller, a diaper bag with all the "stuff" and heaven forbid you forget a favorite toy! Everyone thinks of having baby as that quiet moment sitting and rocking. The truth is those moments are few and far between.

Go on vacation and explore while you can. If you can't afford one you can't afford a baby, and it is much easier travelling without a little one. Enjoy your freedom while you can.

first, are you old enough to get married without parental permission?
-
second, if he wants children so badly, he needs to " put a ring on it".
-
just remember that you are the one that has the majority of the responsibility for any child you may have. if something happens, are you willing and able to take care of yourself and a child---be honest with yourself.

There go your weekends, parties, taking off for someplace spur of the moment. There goes saving money for a cruise or a vacation. Here comes sleepless nights, tons of bills, scheduling your life around the baby, saving money for school, college. Paying tons for clothes, toys, diapers, etc.
you will be a parent for a long time, enjoy your life as your own person for a while
