The Fever

This meme came at the perfect time!

19 Weeks


Because I have the fever!

The baby fever!

Oh Lawd.

After I had my daughter I was certain I wasn’t having anymore babies and I couldn’t figure out how the parents of more than one got to the place where they wanted more.

The weight of being a new mother, breastfeeding, sleepless nights, and attempting to wrap my head around the incredible responsibility in front of me had me swearing off all future children.

And then I found out I was drowning from Post Pardum Depression.

So I fought.


And I won.

I found out what it’s like to be a mother without PPD dragging me down.

29 Weeks

Light, relaxing, and enjoyable.

There’s a future.

And I want to do it again.


Note: I am not pregnant nor am I trying to get pregnant at this time.

I have a wedding to plan people!!

But I will hold your baby, rock your baby, smell your baby, buy your baby

clothes, and look at pictures of your baby.

      Thank you Galit. I wondered what it would feel like to want another. Now I know. I want it bad. I have to wait. But I’m glad I have that want.

    I can connect completely with your post. I love reading your words. I’m so glad you started a blog. I remember you talking to us and saying you weren’t sure you would be any good, having hesitations. Your blog/vlog is my favorite thing to read these days. I’m so glad you started and are continuing:) You are a wonderful writer. I love how you are so honest and share so openly with us.

    My sister is due in 4 weeks. I can’t wait to get my fix, because I’m “jonesing” too. My babies are 2years apart and it’s a lot of work, but they are great friends (most of the time).

    This linky is going to give me the fever, too! Though, I’m with you- I just want to hold others’ babies, not have one again! 🙂

    Thanks for joining in!

    I get the fever, then the baby wakes up randomly during the night and I’m cured for awhile. But the bump link up has me feeling feverish again, so maybe we’ll give it the old college try, eh?

    BTW, I love the pic of you and the pup.

      That’s my friends dog. She was very clingy when I was pregnant and now she’s got a special friendship with my daughter!!

    You sound like me. Why would anyone want to do this again??? Of course my daughter is only 5 months old, so I’ve still got the deer-in-the-headlights look. We’ll see if anything changes.

    I understand your PPD struggle. Going through a bit of a spell myself. (hugs)

      Believe me when I tell you there is light at the end of the ppd tunnel. I had it bad. Really bad. I’m just now, 14 months later, starting to feel Luke myself. I’m here if you need to talk.

    The fever gets me too. I would have more kids if my husband hadn’t had a certain procedure done!

    I am glad he did though! I can’t imagine another pregnancy!

      I’m just having trouble waiting. We are going to wait until after the wedding. But I so want to be pregnant. Kinda.

      Thank you. I always wondered when ppl know they’re done. I guess you just know.

    Be careful of the fever! We were so not having anymore babies. Then I held one and missed it so much. But we we’re done…or so I thought. Baby number 4 is due in 10 days! YIKES!

    I have it too!!! 3 boys running around here driving me batty and I want to throw a baby into the mix? I musta lost my marbles!!! But they’re soooooo cute!!!

    I have the fever like… every time I have a baby and they start growing too big to be newborns anymore. It’s ridiculous considering I have 4 kids, plus 2 from SO’s previous marriage. I should be committed, especially since they drive me near homicidal almost every single day.

    I think it’s more that I love being pregnant… 9 months of nausea aside (never the throwing up, just the constant want to throw up so I’d feel better – the only time I felt semi-human was when I would eat, which explains a 50lb weight gain for every pregnancy), it’s an amazing experience.

    Obviously, I am not a good salesperson. LOL

    I will be linking up once my desktop PC is hooked up and functional!

      Omg youve just described my pregnancy. I can’t throw up. I wanted to but can’t I miss pregnancy.

    Love the bump! I felt the same way. I wasn’t ready at first and then it just hits you. Glad you fought and you’re ready again.

    You are brave, girl! PPD did it to me bad enough that I never want to do it again!
