Baby fever has officially struck our household. And surprisingly it wasn't me that it hit.
Around Christmas it was me that was wanting to start expanding our family. M disagreed and wanted to wait a few more years. So for months I tried to press the issue but M wouldn't budge. So I gave up hope. Then when M left I was surprised that I came to the realization that there were a lot of things I wanted to do before we started a family. I couldn't wait for M to come home and we could take last minute getaways, go out on the town and just enjoy each other. One day when M called I told him about my realization. M had other thoughts. His response, oh I want to start trying for a family when I come home. I was shocked and mad at first. I def was against it. Many thoughts ran through my head. I'm only 26, I'm too young, there's so many things I want to do before we start a family. M was surprised that I wanted to wait. Don't get me wrong, I love kids and def want to be a mom but now all of a sudden when M said he was ready I started backing away.
It all changed a few weeks ago. I went to a friend's pampered chef party and I was the only one there without kids. And it didn't bother me. In fact, I felt like I was the one missing out and I knew then and there I was ready.
SO it looks like once M comes home Operation Baby will commence. We even have a trip to the DOminican Republic planned that M has dubbed our baby moon.
I did start reading What to Expect Before your Expecting. I had to put it down. Reading about everything that could be wrong with your or could go wrong. NO way. As someone who has high anxiety as it is I had to put the book away. So now I'm going to let nature take it's course and go along with what God is planned for us and let it happen the natural way without freaking out about something before it happens.
So baby fever has struck. I even bought my first baby outfit for our yet to be kid. Call me crazy!!!
