Baby Fever!!!

I guess Spring's here because not only are the animals ready to procreate, but I'm kinda feeling that aching womb feeling. You know, the feeling you get when you just want to have one of those tiny, cute, precious babies in your arms. Most of my friends are on baby #1 or 2 already and I have to admit that I am sooooooooo ready to have one of my own!

I keep imagining how wonderful it would be to have a little version of J and me. How wonderful it would feel to hold our own little baby. I'd better stop thinking about this because I don't want to jinx us! I know, I know...our wedding is but a mere 76 days away, so we can hold off till then to start the baby making.

This may sound like a bizzare thing to worry about, but I sometimes think "what if we can't have kids?" I don't know why the thought has entered my mind (on more than one occasion), but it is something I worry about. I know millions of people get pregnant very easily and some don't even try to conceive. Sooooo many people have unplanned pregnancies (I hate it when people call them 'mistakes' or 'accidents').

But what about those who try to conceive and just aren't able to? Not everyone is capable of having babies. I know for a fact that I am fertile- I've asked my doc a zillion times in the past and have been checked. I don't know why I have nightmares that maybe J and I may not be able to have kids. Weird. I know. I'd better stop obsessing. Anyway, that's what I sometimes think/worry about. Crazy.

Human babies aside, we have three new babies as of today. Three calves were born this week. Two little boys and a very cute little girl. Each weighed around 85 lbs at birth.

Oh Chris, what an odd thing to worry about. Most people don't think about not being able to conceive why should you? Don't worry. I guess it's natural to wonder the what ifs, but we never even thought of it and just assumed that we would be able to and we had no probs getting pregnant :o) I'm sure after the wedding you'll be blogging about baby stuff! *wink wink* Don't worry and don't think about it.

Hey Chris,
I used to worry non-stop that I wouldn't be able to is perfectly natural to wonder and worry- really how are you to know for sure you CAN conceive until you start trying...BUT on the other hand if you have been checked by your doc and she has said all is okay then really there is nothing to worry about!!
AND Look at Gav and I...starting a family and it really took no time at all...

That said, why not focus on the new life together you are starting?? Engagement is a time to focus on each other!!
