Okay, I know, another one of the “Ms Hedgehog wants a baby but doesn’t have one” posts… but geeze! Another friend had a baby and I didn’t even know she was pregnant! I haven’t seen her in about a year but suddenly she gets a Facebook and shows off her new beautiful baby boy that was just born yesterday… And while I am super happy for her and anyone else who has a baby or is pregnant, THIS ISN’T FAIR! Our TTC date keeps getting pushed back by Mr. Hedgie. And I am so baby frustrated that I thought I was pregnant earlier this week since I couldn’t remember my last period but, alas, it was negative and my pre-period symptoms are showing up. I mean, I was crazy super excited about the possibility of an unplanned pregnancy. And that is WEIRD! Ugh… Andybody else as frustrated or eager to be a mommy as I am? How do you handle? All I can see is baby/pregnancy things! I mean, everybody and their dog (litterally, my MOH’s dog just had a litter) is getting pregnant or starting a family.

I just wanted to chime in and say that I feel the same way! We aren’t TTC until August, but it has been on my mind non-stop lately. It didn’t help that Darling Husband bought me some cute children’s books for an arctic-themed nursery I am planning for what will be baby#1. I was even up last night sewing polar bear pillows for a child that hasn’t even been conceived yet! Ugh! Aunt Flow showed her ugly face this weekend too, and the whole week before I was imagining pregnancy symptoms. I even POAS twice (remember…not trying yet! I guess I was just hoping some super-sperm had magically gotten through or something….geez…I don’t even know!) It just makes me so sad thinking about having to wait. Why can’t we both be ready now???

I feel the same way, too! Just seems like everyone is pregnant or has babies but me – even people who weren’t trying and aren’t in a good place to have a baby.
My fiance and I aren’t actively trying to conceive, but have not been actively preventing for almost the last year. I know now isn’t the best time – I kind of want to be able to drink at my wedding – but I am definitely going to get our fertility checked out and such so we can work on it on the honeymoon.
That means at the earliest, a baby is still 16 months away. So much for having the first one before I turn thirty. Patience is a virtue, right?

I know how all of you ladies feel. I honestly wanted and thought I would have my first baby before I turned 35. I just turned 35 this past Monday. I actually really did have a wonderful birthday thanks to my Darling Husband and family and friends. They really knew how to make the best out of my ticking time bomb age. At least every few weeks a friend or cousin is popping up pregnant. Seriously, it’s been really pouring with babies amongst my family this past year. And of course all of my family members are younger than me. At least my friends who are having babies are still my age, that makes me feel better. However, I’ve turned to the gym to motivate a healthier lifestyle and I feel and look great. I finally have my Darling Husband on board after months of explaining to him that we are not getting any younger. We will begin TTC in January. 2012 will be the year of the dragon “my Chinese horoscope sign” Hopefully our first baby will be born during that time 🙂

@mrs_pugetsound: I was doing the same thing too! I was totally imagining all these symptoms and hoping for some super sperm too… freaked Mr. Hedgie out when I accidentally left a wrapper out. But alas, a BFN… I guess it’s for the best.

I am/have been the same way! I got sick a few weeks ago and threw up in the morning…Oh, morning sickness? I must be pregnant. *Goes out hopefully for PG test* Nope, you’re just sick dummy. :/
And I soooo feel you. One of my semi-close friends had her baby today and I can’t get up the happiness to congratulate her! I got her a present, I wished her luck (it was a planned c-section because the baby was TEN AND A HALF POUNDS GOOD GRIEF), but I haven’t been able to be all “Yayyyyyy, Congrats, she’s beautiful.” I feel bad.

@AmeliaBedelia: I know the feeling. A friend of mine really wants me to come meet her baby girl but I just can’t get the courage up. I know I will cry and make it all about me when it is all about her and her new baby! I feel like a terrible friend but I would feel like an even worse one if I went. Especially since i might accidently run off with the baby and try to raise it on my own… just kidding! (maybe)

I found out that one of my friends is pregnant about a month ago. She’s married, but not to the baby’s dad. And her and her bf broke up. It’s not fair that people in this type of situation can get pregnant but my husband and I can’t.

I am right there with you! I already have 1 of my own and a few adopted but I have been wanting another child since my youngest turned 1 he is now 3. We finally set a time though to start TTC Oct 2012 will be the month but in the mean time I have already bought a few gender neutral onsies and I will probably purchase something baby related every month leading up to actually trying.

Okay, I’m coming clean. I feel the exact same way. Everyone is having babies around me!! And only one of them is married. So, of course, I feel completely jealous that all these unplanned pregnancies are happening around me. Which is just dumb. But I can’t help the crazy thoughts!
I’ve felt so alone in feeling this way….and just a tad insane. It’s comforting to know I’m not alone in the crazy-baby-fever department.
Darling Husband and I are going to start TTC in September, but it seems like an eternity till then. I have to keep reminding myself that 9 months isn’t THAT long!!
