After my last post I really started to think… A lot. And the more I thought about it the more I talked about it, and the more I talked about it the more emotional I got. I’m not sure if my hormones are going haywire or if it’s just me but my mind has shifted from thinking about “the urge” to thinking more seriously about the whole baby makin’ thing. I’m looking more seriously at my baby bucket list thing now too because the time line which I pictured myself being able to complete it is quickly shrinking. That’s right… You’re eyes aren’t betraying you, I think I really will need to start looking for one of those time lines with sperm swimming towards an egg. No, I’m not kidding if you find one let me know, I want it… Because I may be exchanging my remanding 2 years of birth control for something a little less effective. I’m not going to say when in case I change my mind tomorrow. But if I find that widget I keep talking about maybe I will. *smile* Ok, maybe not.
But I am excited, because now I feel like I have a date… A plan, and this whole parenting this is starting to feel less like an “us vs them” thing to me, and more like a reality. One thing that was left in the comments section that really struck me was “I think it’s one of those things of when you’re ready, you’ll know,” The Blond Duck said. “Kinda of like getting married. You want to be as sure as you were walking down the aisle.”
That really struck home with me. Never have I been so sure about something in my life more than I’m sure of marrying my husband. I know there’s a difference between being nervous and scared, and being unsure. I’m not feeling unsure, not this time–But that is scary.
Hmm, the more I think about it the more I think I may not tell you when it’s baby makin’ time because then there’s no surprise! I like surprises! Plus, I think if I talk about it too much I’ll either 1. Not be able to get pregnant for like 6 six years or 2. It will be LAME when I do, because it’ll just be like “Finally… You’ve been talking about it forever!”
I will tell you it’s not like tomorrow or anything… And if things don’t take right away we’ll be cool with that too. And hopefully I won’t change my mind tomorrow.
Hmm, what do you think? Did you share your baby makin’ timeline?
Oh, but I have to tell you a funny story but warning: it could be TMI.
When we were having this “Talk” hubby said “Well, we’re going to have to start doing it more cause at this rate it would take us about eight years.”
