Help! I'm suffering from terrible baby fever. Every second every day, I am praying and hoping that there's been an accident and that I'm pregnant. It's right around the time (my daughter is almost two) so for close babies that I've been planning for YEARS, I wanted my third pregnancy and third baby now or inthe next nine months.
I see babies who are six months and under and I dream of my phantom third baby, I am waking at night and just thinking about it, alot because I am heartbroken over the fact that my husband DOES NOT ANOTHER CHILD.
What on earth do I do? Do YOU suffer from baby fever. How do we solve this? I don't really want a divorce or a sperm donar, but goodness I feel desperate over this. I'm debating going to counseling with him. I can't escape this feeling and I'm so ready ready ready to have another baby. My BODY has somehow switched itself to a 23 day menstruel cycle, because that feeling of fertility is so kicked up. Yes, I know it's hormones causing this baby fever, but it's also my heart, my soul and my desired for a larger than two children family. He knew when we married that I wanted four kids, and three was my compromise. Granted, he hasn't run out and gotten a vasectomy yet, but I can tell he's thinking about it. I simply do not know what to do. We started talking about it one night alot, and it's just so challenging to deal with. He says another child will make him unhappy, don't I want a happy husband?
What about me, what about living for the next thirty years with regret of a ghost baby that I can feel so close beyong my heart in the dream land, a soul calling to me that is calling and calling. I am in tears about this. Have any one else dealt with this, what on earth did you do? I'm so emotional about it, the idea that I may not ever get my third child just feels heartbreaking.
I just turned 36, do I have time for just about 1 more, and he is 42 about to turn 43, so it really does feel like now or never lately.
