Is it weird that I ordered a baby booktoday?
Well I did. Its a pre-pregnancy book actually and I can’t wait for it to arrive.
No, I’m not preggo. Earlier this year John and I decided to start trying for our little one at the end of next year.
Why did I buy the book then?
Well, because for the last several weeks I have been wholly consumed with the desire to start our family. More than usual. Normally its a low burning flame always on in the back of my mind and heart, but recently my desire has gone well past simple baby fever and has escalated into an all encompassing baby ache.
Everywhere I turn something screams baby at me.
There’s always a cute baby or child or pregnant woman everywhere I go! It can’t be a coincidence that parents magazine and american baby magazine started coming to me in the mail. I never signed up for them! That’s just spooky. And why is it that all the blogs I love and new blogs I “discover” are by pregnant divas or new moms? The universe is throwing baby stuff at me left and right!
I can’t talk to my mom about it because she just says wait as long as u can (she had me at 22 and totally regrets it, I’m convinced)
I can’t talk to john about it (often) because he gets so adamant about our “start date” as if talking about it will somehow magically impregnate me and mess him up with school.
I can’t talk to my old besties because I’m uncomfy sharing certain things with them now (seperate post on that coming later)
So, that leaves you! My wonderful bloggiefriends. Boy am I glad to have you!! I know its super early, but be prepared for baby oriented posts here along with my usual random goodies.
I’m just gunna embrace my babyache sickness and allow it to stick around. Can’t hurt can it? The way I look at it, I have a year to “research” before we start trying. Knowledge is power, right!?
Oh, PS: This is the book I bought -
Have you read it?
I cannot wait for it to get here!
Do you / did you suffer from baby fever? Did you remedy it? And if so, How?!
