Countdown to Mother's Day with Hunger Pains

Ok - so y'know how when you get really, really, REALLY hungry you get hunger pains? Well, it's sort of like that, but not with food. That's right... I am talking Baby Hunger Pains.

All right. I admit it. I am something I always said I'd never be, and that is "Baby Hungry".

Only, it's different than before. When I was growing up, as a teenager, and then a young adult, it was my dream to get married and have babies. I was sooooo Baby Hungry, I'd hold anyone's baby who'd let me. Not this time. I see other mother's with babies and I don't feel the "gimmes" as in, "Gimme your baby to hold." It's more of a longing that perhaps I'd like to have another baby.

I keep thinking, MAYBE if I ever get married again, and MAYBE if it is before I am 40, then MAYBE, just MAYBE I'd be able to have another baby. True, someone else would have to "carry" the baby for me, but according to the Doc, I've got premium, Grade A eggs! haha! In other words, surrogacy wouldn't be ruled out.

So, yes. I'd like to have another baby... Guess that makes me Baby Hungry.

And now for your viewing pleasure, some of MY baby pictures, circa 1973-74.

Approximately 3 weeks old.

About 2 months old -- look at ALL that hair!!!

About 9 months old, at my Amish Grandma's house.

1 year old, my first "piano"... again - check out that mop!

I can see your oldest has a lot of your features in that one photo. I could always see features in the other 2. Yeah...the hair. Good times, good times.

I too have been baby hungry, probably for the past 4 years. While my heart wants more, my brain says that I am done. So I will just need to wait until grandkids. Which will probably not be for at least seven years.

We had that same TV. I even have my picture taken in front of it THEY SAME YEAR AS YOU.

Um...BABY SIT get rid of the hunger pains FAST.

I have noticed in the last year...I DO NOT need to have small children in my nerves are OLD.
