We've reached that our age in our lives where, you guessed it, everyone and their sister are getting pregnant. While this is super exciting for all those expecting, it's doing a number on you. You're seeing all the clothes, the ultrasounds, the stuffed animals and UGH! Everything is just so cute and tiny and you find your heart growing twice the size of the Grinch's on Christmas.

We've all been there at one point in time. And even though you may not want a baby, because if you're like me you are just not ready, you still kind of want a baby. Here are the signs if you've been cursed with baby fever...

1. Baby clothes make your heart melt.

Okay, but seriously, what is cuter than a little onesie that say's ladies man on it? They're just so cute!

2. And shoes are even worse.

Okay, baby feet are the CUTEST part of the baby. You can't even fight me on it. There's something so sweet and innocent about little baby feet. So, of course, you see the tiniest little baby shoes in the store and your heart skips a beat, you tear up and think about how PRECIOUS they are.

3. You're constantly offering to babysit ANYONE's child

You see everyone with their little ones and you just want a taste. So you beg and beg and BEG to babysit just so you can get to experience that life for yourself.

4. Everywhere you turn, there's a baby. You can sense one from 10 miles away.

You start to sense a baby's presence before you even hear it cry. You just know.

5. The second you see a baby, you have to goo-goo at it.

I don't when I got possessed by the goo-goo monster, but I cannot look at a baby without talking in the baby voice and putting all of my effort into making it laugh or smile. Happy babies, happy heart.

6. You have a Pinterest board for when the time FINALLY comes.

Okay, I don't have this just yet, but I know LOTS that do!

7. You have a list of potential baby names for when your time comes.

I also do not have this. Don't get me wrong, I have thought about what I'd like to name my children before. But I don't have a note saved in my phone with all of my options.

8. You start to think about how being pregnant can't be "that" bad.

Granted your main reason is you won't have your period, but you'll start coming up with reasons that you should get pregnant.

9. If you go to the store, you always walk down the baby aisle just for fun.

Because what cures baby fever better than baby clothes? It doesn't it makes it worse.

10. When you hold someone else's baby, you never want to give them back.

Okay, I'm TOTALLY like this. If you've ever held a baby, you'll know that cradling them as they sleep is one of the most precious experiences ever. There's just something about it that makes your heart ease into place.

11. You can't wait till the day finally comes where you can have your very own baby.

Some people just have those maternal/paternal instincts. I'm one of them if we're being honest. I've always had a motherly instinct and I know that when the time is right, I'm going to be the happiest mom on this earth.

My boyfriend and I have been dating for a little over a year. The journey we've been on to get to where we are now has been one of the scariest and most fun roller coasters I've ever been on.

My mental health has come in the way of a lot of relationships, both romantic and platonic. I've never quite been able to find a way to master explaining it to people. And I still haven't. Explaining what can happen in your head, when you can barely explain it to yourself is a very difficult and often heart wrenching task.

When I had started dating my boyfriend, I was scared to tell him about my mental health. While I have gained a lot of confidence and it isn't nearly as severe as it was years ago, I know how it can get when "one of those days" comes. I know how scary I can get when I fall into a panic attack. I know how hard it can be to look at someone you love while they have a tear stained face unable to tell you what's wrong.

In the past I've tried two different things. One being that I wouldn't tell them at all and I would try to go day by day like I didn't have this cloud above my head. Once they'd see what I can get like, they'd leave. They "couldn't handle the amount of work I needed" or they felt burdened by being with me. Some would even say they "love me too much to put themselves through seeing me like that."

The other option I tried was putting it all out on the table. I had tried that once. I had told my most recent ex boyfriend everything. I laid it all out on the line, hoping that it would be different. At first, it was. He was comforting and understanding. Until it got to a point where he was using what I told him against me.

He knew my weak points. He knew what would hit the hardest and he was good at what he was doing.

It wasn't until my current boyfriend that I realized that isn't how love should be.

He could tell from the beginning that there were missing puzzle pieces. There were walls that I had build around me that I wasn't about to let just anyone knock down. At first, I found his pestering quite rude. Until he proved his point. He had come to me one night and said he wanted me to tell him everything. No details left behind.

I kind of sat there with my mouth open. I actually tried to pretend as if I didn't know what he was talking about. Within minutes, I was spilling everything. Every crevice I could have touched base on, I did. While I thought he was going to look shocked, scared, or bored even.

He didn't.

He was looking deep into my eyes the whole time. He never broke eye contact with me. He was focused and didn't say anything, just nodded his head. After I was finished and the tears were falling, he held me in an embrace and the only words he could mutter was, "You are so beautiful and one of the strongest people I know. You will get stronger. I promise."

He's taken the time to learn everything. He's watched psychologist's lectures, he's read articles. He's done everything in his power to learn what I need on my dark times. He honestly has gotten to know me so well, I think he knows me better than I know myself.

Not only has it helped our relationship as a whole, but it's helped me learn about myself in a way that I couldn't quite do on my own. He's offered me a kind of love that I've never had before. One where I don't have to fear rejection or getting left behind.

Ladies, if he's the right guy, he'll do whatever it takes to make sure that you have exactly what you need. Not just physically but mentally as well. My guy knows the days where, I could just really use a good cry and being held for 20 minutes. He also knows when I need reassurance.

A guy that truly loves you will learn these things about you. He won't ignore you, he won't brush it off and say "you'll be fine."

Take my word on it, that's the guy you'll want to marry someday.

I know I do.

10 Ways You Might Be Low-Key Pushing Away Your Partner Without Even Knowing

"And one day your name didn't make me smile anymore."

Relationships are hard, I get it. You want everything to be perfect, but in reality, nothing is going to be "perfect." When the honeymoon phase ends and things become serious the dynamic of the relationship changes. Unfortunately, not everyone can adapt to that and without realizing it they start to push their partner away. It happens with both men and women...but I only know it from a girls point of view.

So ladies listen up, if you're doing these 10 things you might actually be pushing your boyfriend away without realizing it:

1. You're picking fights over the smallest things.

And they're over silly things, too.

2. You're giving them one word responses.

"Fine," and "cool" are not acceptable responses in person or over a text.

3. You just aren't talking to them.

The silent treatment is a HUGE no. How are you supposed to have a relationship without communication?

4. You're snooping through their personal items.

Totally invasion of privacy.

5. You're hiding how you really feel about them.

If your feelings have changed, then you need to speak up and say something and not ride it out until they leave, or somebody new comes along.

6. You don't want to see them as much.

Time apart is healthy in any relationship but just to not ever want to see them isn't healthy.

7. Or the opposite you want to be with them all the time.

Like I said time apart is healthy, so if you're with them all the time and they don't get time for family, friend, sports, hobbies or whatever, they're going to get annoyed.

8. You're not giving them back what they're giving you.

Whether it's time, respect, love, compassion, etc, you need to give them what they're giving you.

9. You think everything they're saying is a lie.

If you think they're lying all the time there's no trust, and you NEED trust.

10. You're letting your insecurities get the best of you.

Letting you anxiety and fears get to you and letting them win is going to destroy any relationship.
