The Big P

Last night I had a crazy dream. I was the big P in my dream. PREGNANT. I know..crazy. 

We are not ready for kids yet but we have discussed this lovely topic. 

Now over the weekend we saw some family and they have 2 of the cutest kids ever. They sat with me and one of them sat in my lap and almost went to sleep. They even asked to come home with me. That may have triggered all of this. When we left, I was on the whole I want a baby but not at this moment thing and I do. I want a child. So does Chris. 

THE BIG QUESTION IS..WHEN DO YOU DECIDE IS THE TIME TO HAVE A CHILD? We are not getting any younger but right now I am way toooo selfish to take care of another human being. I am one of those people that love my shower time, I love to look nice and I love to spend money on my self. When do you decide to give up these things and bring someone else in the world? When this happens..my life no longer matters...theirs does. 

Basically...my body needs to stop having dreams of babies. It is giving me baby fever. I even have names...I have had this list for awhile..DO NOT JUDGE ME PEOPLE..BUT I already have my unborn/not even made childs name picked out. I will not let the world know but it is done. 

Is anyone else dealing with this? It seems that either half of blog land is having a child, has a child, or is in my situation. Answers people!

  1. I can't say I'm anywhere near seriously considering having a child, but I definitely know the feeling of your biological clock ticking away! As for making that decision of what time is THE time, I've got nothing. But if Snooki can do it, I know damn well you can ;)

  2. I thought I never wanted a baby due to the I'm so selfish I love my sleep and free time reasoning you mentioned above. Then one day I found out I was pregnant (complete surprise)and everything changed. I'm not sure there is every a right time to get pregnant, you'll always selfishly miss your me time (I still do), but having a child is so rewarding and wonderful. I can't even imagine what life would be like now had I not gotten pregnant when I did. So while I can't tell you when the perfect time is, I can tell you there is no perfect time and sooner or later you should just go for it!

  3. Oh my goodness, I totally thought of you being pregnant yesterday! I was thinking of the guest post and I wondered 'I wonder if she'll be pregnant any time soon?'... SO random and now to see this on your blog! Weird! Anyways, there is NEVER a "right time." There will always be things to do, money to spend elsewhere, etc. You make think you're selfish now, but that all changes when you have a baby... you happily give that up and don't even think about it... the only thing you can think of is 'how did I even exist before this child?!'... it's amazing and you will love being a mom, whenever the time comes!

  4. Well.. Aunt Chelsee would like to see a little Rachel running around haha that would be too cute! I unfortunately can not help you here, other than I have been having very similar dreams lately..and I will not be having any kids. I agree with Tami, if Snooki can do it then you can. By the way just remember that you can't drink when you are preg. Haha I just had to throw that out there!

  7. I get baby fever and I don't even have a boyfriend! When it got to be really really bad is when I got my dog lol. When I can remember to feed her at the same times I feed myself, maybe then I'll be ready for a human child!

  8. Good question. I didn't ever know if I wanted to have kids. But one day we just figured why not know. IT WAS SCARY!!!!!!!! AND SOOOO PERFECT! Trust me everything changes and you enjoy being a mom and giving up some things. (but you dont have to give up everything, things are just different, but a GOOD DIFFERENT)

  10. Ohhhh I have some serious baby fever!! I've actually had MULTIPLE dreams about being pregnant...but, for now, I just have a secret board on Pitnerest for baby stuff (so people don't freak out). haha. Andrew and I want to make sure we're "ready"--or at least, as ready as we can be! Hopefully we'll get to that point next year!

  11. I have been nervous to get pregnant. I never felt ready. And I have the age factor staing me in the face. Not getting in younger and 35 is very close!
    I am not a kid person, my friends who live near me don't have kids. But one weekend I spent some time with my friends who do have kids and realised that I am ready.
    It will happen, in it's own time, when the time is right.
