I don't know why, but I am so depressed all the time, because I want to have a baby so badly. My fiancee and I have been together for almost 3 and a half years, lived together for a year and a half and are getting married May 10th. He doesn't want kids yet, which is fine, I completely understand, but I just wish that it was the time in our relationship where we can try.
It has been getting bad. I see my friends accidentally getting pregnant, and breaking up, and then I look at us, and I know that we could do it. It would be tough, but we could.
I have even been having dreams about it, about being prego and holding my child. Do you know how bad it feels to dream of your child, feeling the love for them, and waking up with them not there?
I also have very irregular periods, like maybe 2-3 a year, so I am always terrified of the thought of being infertile.
I know I am annoying my fiancee by talking about it, and how I want kids now, but I just can't get this out of my mind...anyone have any supportive stories? Like similar stories that ended up well...or am I just crazy? Lol, thanks!
my advice to you would be that don't expect a baby to fix your depression.
for a lot of people babies are the best thing to happen to them, but for a lot it doesn't bring the joy they expect. You can't be sure beforehand.
so I suggest to you that you get help and deal with your own issues before thinking about bringing another person into the world. A baby/child/teenager needs a stable environment so I think getting better and happy should be yur first priority.
Irregular periods do not constitue infertility. Having periods irregularly means you are not ovulating promptly. With that said having your periods at all means you do ovulate and thus are not infertile , you might have trouble pin pointing time to have intercourse because of the sparodic ovulation but definitely not infertile.
Oh and yeah babies do not cure depression..they add to it. It is NOT easy and i suggest you seek some help for your depression.
