I want a baby...

This is rather strange and odd. I'm single career girl whose totally independent and well has a normal life with no marital problems or boyfriend trouble (thank goodness) but for some reason these last couple of weeks I have what the doctor calls "baby blues" it means my body is craving to have a baby and now its interrupting my perfectly decent life to the point where when I see a baby or a pregnant woman I go into the bathroom and burst into tears!! I asked the doc whats happening and he said I got baby blues and recommended I get a bloke and have an "agreement"... (if you get my drift) Now I wish there was another way of getting a baby without the boring task of finding a wannabe boyfriend and going through the "let's get to know each other period" I mean wouldn't life be perfect if the local supermarkets had a section where you buy babies?? Anyway, girls did you or have you ever had baby blues? Strange thing is I'm not very fond of babies as babies don't like me and I'm not so crazy about them but lately all I keep thinking about is babies (damn that Natasha Beddingfield should be shot for singing that babies song! )

This is the first time I heard about so called "baby blues". I am married for one year and I am also yearning to have a baby soon. I am not sure if this can be categorize as baby blues. I always conscious of the presence of pregnant women around me, will it be in the grocery, church, transportation, etc. I also envy those couple/person who are carrying their baby arms and I would also discuss about having children around the house with my husband. I'm sorry, I got carried away. Going back to your case, Why don't you try to adopt a child? Just like Angelina Joli and Brad Pitt. I believe a lot of children are available for adoption. Happy myloting.

oh I don't want a baby. The doctor told me that biologically a woman's body is programmed to yearn for a baby. Its just my body that wants a baby and not me.. I prefer to open up an orphanage than adopt. If I am to have a baby its got to be my own blood... Thanks for your reply though... cheers

Hi jellymonty, you are feeling broody,bioligical clock and all that. Maybe you should try borrowing one for a day and see if you still feel broody after that, or you could try the method Niles used (if you are familiar with Frasier) where he was broody too and carried a bag of flour round with him attending to it's every need. I wasn't really a baby person but took to mine, broody feelings won out. You've plenty of time yet so enjoy the single life while you can.

Not many babies are placed for adoption. They are fostered and some of them are over three years old before they are adopted. It might be possible for you to buy sperm from a clinic. You could have a relationship and ask the guy if he will help you get pregnant. If you have a baby your won't have as much time or energy for your career. I have just had my baby daughter a couple of weeks ago. She is adorable. I feel tired today after a fairly sleepless night. My little baby is worth it. Good luck with your dream to have a baby.

sometimes when I see people with cute babies,I sometimes wish I get to have mine soon.but,reality snaps me back,my measly savings haunts me,and I see things clearly again.I can't afford to have a baby yet because I can't even take care of my financially woes.also,when I get to buy a lot of clothes and shoes for myself,I feel relieved that I don't have a baby to take care of.I just enjoy spoiling myself and relishing my single life.
