I know this all probably sounds a little pathetic but really needed to vent!!
Why is it when you want a baby everyone around you seems to fall pregnant by 'mistake!' take my fiance's dad for example (my childrens grandad!) he got married in august 2004, but started seeing his 'old friend' behind her back around christmas time. He has now found out his 'bit on the side' is pregnant so he's left his wife to be with her!. Their baby is due in august. If that wasnt enough I have this beautiful cradle that was given to us for our 2nd child, we have got rid of alot of our baby things through lack of space but I made sure we kept this because I love it and cant wait till the time I can set it up for our next baby. Anyways for some reason my father-in-law thinks we should donate it to him for his new child and doesnt seem to be listening when we say no. I just dont get it! I feel like I have got to get pregnant real quick just so he doesnt take it!!
To top things off my mum phoned to tell me my cousin who had a baby last august got rushed into hospital the other day for a suspected appendicitis (which wasnt the case) while she was there they found out she was 6 weeks pregnant! Mum said they are in shock.
When it is your time, you will become pregnant . You do not have to give your things away unless you want to or even lon them out and I understand especially if they are sentimental and do not worry about what people say or think or even feel towards you. Don't get annoyed, your time will come!
You are not alone!
The best to you! Baby dust to you!
It isn't just you. I think we do notice it more when we are ttc and others are pregnant or get pregnant. However, in the past few months since we have been trying: one of my best friends had twins, my older sister is expecting, my sister-in-law is expecting a boy, two of my cousins are expecting, two gals at work are expecting, two of my husband's friend's wives are expecting. I could keep going for a while. I think that when you get to the age when you want to start or extend your family, most of your friends and people you know are in that same age bracket. Besides, it was winter and there wasn't anything else to do on cold winter nights but ttc. Hee hee.
i think is completely crazy and very annoying. im young yes, and a lot of people think it really odd that id like to settle down and have a family now. im 20 just for the record. and YES I am aware that im young but im also Type 1 Diabetic and i really hope to be pregnate of have a child by age 25 so I have the best chances of a healthy baby. And i seems to me that everyone else in the world is getting pregnate BY ACCIDENT and their even YOUNGER than me! now im not trying to get pregnant. obviously my boyfriend knows that id like to have a child really badly but i think he would probably freak out like everyone else if i said i wanted to TRY to have one. And a part of me wants to have the whole marriage thing first...But it is really hard being someone who has wanted a family since, i dont know 12. i know thats odd but you have to know me and my family to understand. I really want to be a stay at home mom. i want to raise my children and be there when they get home from school. I really love to make home made meals part of me belongs in the 50s haha. And everywhere i look someones having a baby. my cousin-age 17. my old friends from school-age 18 my other cousin-age 21. AND some of the other ppl dont even want to be a parent! they never thought of it or thought maybe down the road! im sorry, but i needed to vent too.
