Babies, Babies, Everywhere!

Firstly, holy cow there have been babies being born and babies being conceived all over blogland these days - so excited to hear about new developments in the TTC world. Congrats to all who have new heartbeats, whether inside or outside of the womb.

I had a wonderful dream the other night (and I promised not to bore you with every post being dream-inspired, but I suppose my unconscious is working overtime these days). I don't know if anyone has experienced this, but I dreamed that I was pregnant and could actually feel what it felt like. Of course, I have nothing in my real life that I can compare it to, but oh-my-frikkin'-god, it felt amazing. I was quite lucid throughout the dream, and clung onto it for as long as I could before waking up. My tummy grew throughout the dream, and I could feel how every new size of it felt on me. How my baby felt in me.

When I woke up, I held back tears.

When I woke up, I had a text message on my phone. One of my best friends had sent me a photo of her 7-month-pregnant belly with the message "oh my god, i'm massive".

Yes you are. And I am empty.


  1. Try not to look at it as empty....perhaps take the perspective that it's a desire not yet fulfilled? I have had the preggo dreams too, and agree that they are most lovely :)

    I'm sorry to hear the waking was so upsetting and I hope that you wil be able to find a balance of your mind and your heart that will work for you :) Big hugs!

  2. What a wonderful/terrible dream. I had one about miscarrying, which I think was better upon waking since I could reassure myself that it wasn't true. Not the case with yours. ((hugs))

  3. *hugs* It's so hard when you want something that badly and you see it all around you.

    I had a dream like that once even though I don't want to be pregnant. So realistic though. I'm just glad I woke up before giving birth ;)

  4. Ugh. All my love. People don't think before they spew sometimes.

    (thank you for your kind words on my blog. I've added you to my reader so that I can keep following you!)
