Pregnant?

No, I am not.

I wonder if that is the new rule, to try for a baby right after getting married. My husband and I have been married a little over 7 months. 7 months...not that long. We are enjoying our time together with the hope, prayer, and desire to bring a little one into the world at some point. But not now. It's just not what is best for us right now. I cannot begin to count the number of times that I have been asked, "when are you guys having a baby?" If god were to grace us with a baby at this time of course we would welcome him/her with open arms. We would be thrilled, overjoyed, thankful, blessed and happy. This is not a selfish post, just an honest one. I am so happy with our lives right now. I am married to the best man I have ever known and am enjoying every minute of it!

I just had to get that off my chest because it has been driving me crazy. They say first comes love, then comes marriage but up next for us is not a baby carriage! We are working on getting a house first.

I guess I have brought some of the questions on myself...My pinterest account must have been sending mixed messages. I have a someday board and I pin baby/nursery stuff all the time. Why not, I need/want ideas for the future.

Here are some beautiful things I have pinned...

To all of those trying for a little one, I pray that god answers your prayer! For those not ready like me, I pray that you enjoy the time and memories you are making with your hubby!

Amen!

Thank you for this! Me and the BF are not married, but practically are since we have a house and have been together for almost 6 years. We're constantly asked when we're getting married and when kids are coming along, but right now we just don't care.

hahaha! i completely understand! i think that those question/thoughts start about the time you walk out of your wedding reception. :)

Ha! I totally have to laugh because we used to get this all of the time. We were dating & were always asked when we were getting married. Then married, and constantly asked when we were having a baby. After baby #1, it was when was baby #2 coming? After baby #2 came, it was when was #3 coming?! It never ends! :)

Some people get on my nerves with all the questions. I always get asked when I'm getting married and then when will we have children. Sometimes I wish they wouldn't be so nosy! When the time is right, I know you and your husband will be great parents!

Oh girl as soon as you have a baby everyone will ask you when you are going to have another. I got asked that when I was STILL in the hospital with Kendall. I thought really can't I just enjoy the one that I JUST had!? We waited almost 3 years before we had a child. It's not selfish in my opinion it's important. Chris and I had so much fun those three years getting to spend time alone, going on trips, and just enjoying our married life together. Enjoy your time as Newlyweds!!

Such a sweet post. Love the pins! We are definitely ready and trying. When the time is right...I suppose. We are really enjoying our time together alone too! :)

I know EXACTLY how you feel. We have only been married 8 months and at least 2 or 3 times a week I get asked if we are having a baby soon! And I always pin alot of baby stuff so I get texts saying "is there something you have to tell me??" UGH! Drives me crazy!!

I love the pictures. I understand about the questions, It is my least favorite question. Ours started before the wedding and is now worse. You are much nicer than my blog post about the subject.

Enjoy your time with your husband.
