Baby Blues...

I think sometimes everyone in blogworld thinks we have a ball over here in our world and never share in the rest of the worlds ups and downs ...and ..for the most part ..we don't. We usually keep our chin up and make the most of whatever happens in our crazy world. That's why I like being us;) ..but sometimes ..I get sad too. Like today ...like the past month for that matter ...it seems like everyone I know has a bundle of joy on the way or is planning another bundle of joy ...and I'm so super happy for them ...but, at the same time, terribly jealous ...I want to hear the pitter patter of little feet down my hall ...where's my bundle? I want to be a mommy again and feel those little flutters of new life in my belly ...it's the most amazing feeling in the world ...I hear so many new mommy's complaining of morning sickness and being tired ...and cranky ...and I think back ...and for the life of me ...can not remember feeling that way ...I was sick A LOT! ...but I was so excited and intrigued by this new life ...I completely enjoyed every minute of the whole experience and it hurts me so bad on the inside to know, never, no matter what ..I will never feel that again. I ache to feel that again and rock a baby to sleep and feed her in the middle of the night ...I want to be a mom again.

    Awwww... that was so sweet it I almost teared up. Does not the man in your life feel the same way about another child? I bet you make a good mom. Not to mention pregnant women have a beauty that nothing else in this world comes close to.

    Well since the sweet and loving Mrs. JQP shot down my idea on adopting the 17 1/2 year old Korean girl, she has been killing me with this make a baby thing...sure it was fun at first but my God, I need some rest.

    that and I will be the one who ends up rasing it, her rock and roll life-style doesnt lend itself to well to motherhood...

    I feel the same way. My SIL is expecting in April, and her cousin is now pregnant. I have a 3 year old and a 19 month old, AND am still dealing with PPD. Even with all of that, I long for another baby. My husband is happy with two, so I don't know if it will ever be for me. Don't get me wrong - I am so blessed with the two I have. But there is a nagging at me that there is one more place to fill in my family.

    Sorry to ramble. ((Hugs)) to you. I know how you feel.

You need someone to do the morning sickness and swollen feet for you? I'm in! I will get obscenely fat for you sweetie and love every minute of it the moment I see you holding the baby you were meant to have. (((((HUGS))))))

    I don't think anyone could comprehend the depths of this relationship. We've been through so much together ..so many highs and lows ...and the things we've done with and ...to each other ...most people would have bailed on us by now ...but we came thru it all shining like the stars we are! I love her with all my heart and soul ...and there is absolutely nothing I would not do for rainbow. She's my best good friend ...just like grade school;) I don't know what I'd do without her ...can't imagine what it'd be like. I'm glad you enjoy us as much as we do!
