Hi. I am 41 years old, and have two children, 9 year old LG and 5 year old LB. I have been thinking about a permanent solution to birth control, like having my tubes tied, but something has stopped me. Now, my little sister has recently had a little boy, and ever since then, I keep on watching "Midwives" and "One born every minute" on Youtube, and cannot seem to get enough of the birth process, and I cry with joy every time a baby a is born, and the agony and ecstasy of each mom I enjoy experiencing with them.
Although my brain tells me that I am finished having babies, and that physically, emotionally and financially I am not ready or able to have another, I cannot get the idea out of my mind. I even have had thoughts of what would happen if, heaven forbid, I was to get pregnant by accident (both my kids were very well planned, so that is very unlikely!).
How do I work my way through this, without being obsessive about it? It doesn't make any sense, but I can't seem to help myself!
I saw this topic and I was like oh em gee that's me! I haven't had any children yet and I just started ttc a month ago but for the past year or so I was literally-and still is-obsessed with anything baby, pregnancy or birth related !!! I used to watch 'one born every minute' 'midwives' 'home grown babies' and even 'great expectations'. I can't go past the baby section without stopping and looking around when I am at the shops!
I figure it is because I really want a baby and maybe mother nature is just giving me signs and a little nudge!
I don't think you should worry about it being abnormal, infact i think most women who have had a longing to have a child will probably understand
I think that if you really feel ready for another child then plan for it properly taking all factors into account in terms of how it will change things for you! Goodluck
