I find more and more everyday that I want a BABY. But the birth is what is standing in my way. Even the thought of being pregnant isn't driving me away like it once did (I get pretty bad hyper emesis). I keep looking at baby things and fixing up our small little apartment. I cleared a space in mine and DH's room all the while thinking "this is where the baby's amby will go" I've been thinking so much about it that I am beginning to think it is the Lord's (or the baby's!) way of saying "Margaret, you need to be getting ready for this". Hopefully they have given me a few YEARS head start.
Huh, could have written both entries myself.
I would love an online version of a BFWish art group, there is an art area on the Solace forum, if that helps.
And as far as wanting a baby like that and having unconscious thoughts that the baby is coming and making preparations, that was exactly how I felt before I concieved this time, and since my partner is a woman, it wasn;t like an 'oops' could happen, I just knew somehow, that it was going to happen, and at the very last minute, voila...every little piece fell into place. I only had a month and a half notice though! But I was SO sure, that I started taking prenatal vitamins.
