It's so frustrating. DH and i were supposed to TTC in 2009. But my mom died and i inherited my brother. And i also raise my stepson. So we put TCC on hold. I'm 23 and feel so out of sorts. I'm not like a normal mom. I know i'm plenty young. But i'm caught between Maiden and Mother. I don't have baby stories. I don't have a birth story and it puts me in an odd place when i'm trying to make friends.
No one gets it. My childless friends don't understand because i'm a mom. But even my mommy friends don't get it because i've never given birth. And even my stepmommy friends don't understand because they didn't adopt a child who was older than their stepchild.
i want my own baby. And my sister had a baby on Monday and i was one of the first to hold her. ...it made me so sad.
and yet, I'm telling my husband we should wait another 2+ yrs before we TTC. because it's the rational choice.

Don't feel sad, feel proud not everyone can pull off raising a stepson and a brother, your young, strong and smart. look past peoples questions and answer theme with minimal answers and look ahead towards your goals and plans, as for having a baby your still a young women there is plenty of time, do what you think is right and don't feel pressured by peoples quetions and what if's.
