Tick Tock.... Biological clock ticking..
I used to laugh when people talked about their 'biological clock' but after a few years of trying and now having to put it on the back burner for health reasons I can confirm that it exists. And it really ticks!!! I evokes the most odd mix of emotions, some of which are totally irrational and this can be so difficult. One of the feelings I've had is that every friend who gets pregnant is reducing the chance of me having a baby. How daft is that???? I expect to feel jealous but actually feel something more like panic... Just thought I'd get that off my chest and share it with you all. Feel free to add your own thoughts too.
sigh, I am feeling it too. I really want to have childern but I have to wait...but I am scared because of my many health problems, I might not be well enough
I'm glad I'm not alone. I have the same worry that all that a) I won't be well enough and b) I'll need to stay on all the meds which makes my body a not very nice place to grow if you're a baby.
I'm on meds that would make it difficult for me to have a successful pregnancy, too. But I don't want kids because of my health problems, and my utter lack of wanting to be a mother. Well, okay, I want to be a mother, but not to a human baby. I have an irrational yet intense longing to give birth to a litter of kittens. And not in some furry-esque, anthropomorphic way - I just want to have kittens, not cat-human hybrids or something. *sighs*
yeh rainbow be a cat lady, if I don't have kids I'm being a dog lady i'll just have dogs!!!
on tv just this moment they were talking about older women having children - from 42 to 60! I think once you get 50+ that really is time to stop, your body says no for a reason. But you've got plenty of time!
But anyway I was never a baby person until i was 17/18 (never understood my friends younger than this, wanting kids at 14!?) when I met my boyfriend and boom hellooo biological clock, 5 years or so and I'm hoping for children but the part of me that freaks out about pregnancy, birth and having children is winning right now, so I don't know what will happen. The part of me that is all rational won't let the clock tick because I want to have a good job going and I want money, I won't be bringing up my kid on just enough to have a house and food like us now.
When I find out that people I know or used to know are pregnant I can't be reeeally happy about it because most of these people are so young, it just seems to me that they've given up time they still had, but obviously babies are general a happy thing so it's not all bad.
I think to be a mother, it just means to take care of someone. I would like to rescue lizards and turtles
see today I feel all warm and fuzzy about this possible part of the future, but yesterday I didn't
I don't want kids, I do NOT like little kids, and then they're 10-11-12 and all pretentious, then they're teenagers and I would hate to live with me and some teenagers ugh....
I just don't feel the need to. Which is ok because I'm not really at a point in my life when I can have kids at all...
exactly courtney...good! i wish more people your age thought the same! most of them don't think at all lol I was the same, still scares me now...urgh the thought of being pregnant scares my womb!
Same here, queen. My womb and I are terrified of being pregnant. It's just so... icky.
lol guys, me and my boyfriend want to have kids, but later.
I still feel too young to even be discussing my biological clock...so yeh... laaater
lol, I am 28, when I was 20 I didn't want kids at all, I hit 28 it was like I want a family
I want to have kids...but I have to find a decent daddy first....oh and money...lots of money!
