Broody

Ok... not that long ago I was writing that Hubland and I had pretty much decided not to have kids... and for me it now feels like that has gone out the window. I am so damn broody its unbelievable. Two of my best friends have just had their first bambinos - a boy and a girl (they have to get married when they grow up). I have a friend at work who is pregnant. Everything around me just seems to scream baby! and then the voice in my head says 'You want one, and you want one right know'. But I can't have one.... and I also want to see if this feeling lasts. In about a years time our financial situation will be miles better and might be the time to think about getting pregnant, so if the broodiness lasts until then I think we'll probably get started.

Who'd a thought it?

I could be trite and say "go for it - it's the best thing I've ever done!" And it's true - I love it so much and am so proud that I've brought another life into the world. But it's also probably the hardest thing I've ever done. So I think you need to be very sure it's right for you, otherwise that 3am feed right after the 2am feed might just make you wish you hadn't gone down this road. I'm sure you'll make the right decision for you. Would be very exciting! xxx

Oh gosh! I wasn't going to have any and now I have four. My first was an accident- no truly- my third wasn't planned (I was practically homeless at the time in a painful divorce!) In short if I'd planned or been free of fate or more together (less of an idiot) would things have been better or worse?

I just don't think Mother Nature has any respect for planning, but that's me!
