I'm The Girl With Baby Fever At 20, Ask Me Anything

Just because I have baby fever doesn't mean that I'm going to have kids right now.

Trust me I have had my fair share of weird looks and disapproving lectures when I say I have baby fever, and I'm only 20.

I know that I have so much more life ahead of me and that I need to wait to have kids. I totally understand I need to finish college and finish law school, get a job, and a house and be financially stable.

All of this I know and it has been told to me many times. Of course, I would never want to put myself in a place that would jeopardize my future or my child's future. I want to be smart about it so that my kids can have the best life possible.

But that doesn't mean I don't think about having kids, and what they will look like and their names.

I already know what I want to name my kids, I have for a few years now. I think about being a mom and packing school lunches and taking them to practices. I know being a mom is not easy at all, kids are a pain and expensive, but I have always wanted to be a mom because of the unconditional love that I will have for the rest of my life.

My mom was so amazing, she showed me what being a great mom was.

So if I'm even half the mom she is, then I think my kids will be very lucky. Walking through Target and seeing the baby section gets me every time, all the little shoes and socks. I can't wait to be able to buy all of that stuff and just have someone who is a little piece of me walking around.

I think back to my childhood, and all the moments and memories I have with my parents, honestly, I can't wait for that to be me.

Even though I want kids really badly, I know that I have to wait — I'm only 20 years old so I'm just not ready, and I know that. And just because I get happy seeing the Target baby section, and I already picked out my kids name doesn't mean that I am gonna get pregnant within the next five or six years. I want to be a stable adult before I bring kids into the world.

So don't assume that I'm crazy, irresponsible, too young, or that I want kids right now just because I have baby fever.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
