Every time I see little babies on television or anywhere really I want to cry! Anyone else go through this? lol

My daughter is almost 2 and in all honesty, I don't want another baby right now...couldn't handle it and it wouldn't be a good idea but I'm like melting into a big pool of mush when I see babies lately and I find something inside of me longing for's like i've got a little angel on one shoulder saying it's a bad idea and a little devil on the other saying 'so what, you WANT one'

anyone else go through this? lol I feel crazy!

  • Me too! I was watching 16 and pregnant when my husband came home from work. He looked at me and said, " why are you watching this?" Because he knows how I get. I have been known to burst into tears seeing pregnant women or little babies :(

  • Oh YES! Did I ever go through this! I still do at times, and I'm past the age of having children. This is wired into our make-up. It is instinct for the survival of the human race. If women decided to have babies based on the facts, the race would have ended with Adam and Eve. Why would anyone want to be fat, moody, hungry, sleepy, and stressed for nine months out of the year, only to have to give up sleeping through the nights for the next eighteen years and raise a little monster who one day shouts, "I hate you, Mommy!" . We can't help it. God made babies so cute that we can't resist them. Even when our family is complete. Even when we know in our hearts that we cannot afford to raise another child. We still go through periods of desiring one. THis is very normal. However, if it doesn't pass. If you continue to be weepy, you may want to speak to your doctor. Could be beginning of depression.
