7 Signs You Have Really Bad "Baby Fever"

Signs You Have Bad Baby Fever via Babble.comIt is certainly no secret that before my husband and I actively started trying for baby #4, I was big time infected with baby fever & had to wait for him to feel ready — if he was going to be. Baby fever — not to be confused with the increase of body temperature in an infant — is a strong urge, desire, need to have a baby. It can be a want to be pregnant or adopt — wanting to grow your family. Some say that we have this biological clock that is in line with fertility and nature’s way of ensuring we procreate. I totally believe it because I have felt first hand for well over a year now this huge desire to have a baby in our life. I have been ‘infected’ with baby fever for over a year and it’s just getting strong and stronger now that I have the ‘all clear for baby making’ from both the husband and our doctor. Click through to read the 7 signs that show you have really bad “baby fever”:
