Baby Fever!

Is it just me or are couples emerging from their winter hibernations with news of babies at an alarming rate this spring? Babies are everywhere! My relatively small office now has two pregnant women, both due in the fall and my coworker was telling me how she has no fewer than four friends all due in September. Apparently, December through January was a busy month for getting it on and fertilizing things. The only thing I fertilized in December was my poinsettia and really, who am I kidding because that thing died a horrible death while sitting on my desk.

I'm certainly not jealous of these women or wishing to be preggers myself, don't get me wrong. My mother probably wishes I felt differently right now as her eyes are really getting the "I Want To Be A Grandmother" glazed look more and more often when she sees the babies. I do want kids, I definitely do. Just not right now. Especially since the interviews and magazine covers would get to be a bit much since for me to have a baby right now it would have to be an immaculate conception and I'm reallllly too busy right now to be giving birth to little miracle babies.

Sadly, I already know the name for said miracle baby, but I digress.

Aww, my mom gets like that too! But, like you, no babies for me any time soon.

I sometimes feel like one of the few women in America who would probably be ok with never having a kid. I like babies but don't think I'm cut out for their grownup counterparts. I'll take the husband, though.

You're definitely not the only one, NotMiranda.

I have a name picked out too. And a second name as well. Whether it's a boy or a girl;)

But I'm sooooooo not even close to experiencing a la Britney, the closest thing to God.

Babies are not my thing. Yuck!

oh man i totally feel the same way too. babies are just everywhere. in the last half year, i know at least 7 friends and colleagues who are pregnant or given birth. it's madness. and they claim that the population is on the decline...

I have two pregnant women sitting with me in our team of 10. They are both due within weeks of each other in a couple of months. Plus I have several other friends due around the same time. Evidently my friends all shag and make babies around the same time...

I just read an upset email from my bf's mother to him. She was going on and on about how she'll never really get to be a grandmother (we are all not allowed to see my boyfriend's daughter) but she seems to be more adamant on her other son giving her a grand child.

I digress...I like your blog. Yes it is crazy with lots of pregos out there.

Funny, out here on the west coast we had this storm come through last fall. Guess it takes a few months for the seeds to be spread throughout the country! ;)

NotCarrie said...

H, singleguy, so babies are a trend from the West Coast?

Larissa said...

funny i noticed this too!

Single guy blogging said...

Yup! Could be the ONLY trend the west coast has ever come up with.. ;)

K said...

I totally have seen this. Babies are the new blogs...or maybe the other way around?

I have four friends due in September! How crazy is that? I just went online and got all my baby gifts for the moms-to-be. Deep sigh.

It's not just you. I wrote about this very thing last month. There has got to be something in the water. I'm telling you...

I know what you mean! In my last job, I was surrounded by 5 pregnant women. It drove me crazy listening about ultrasounds and baby talk. I used to walk out on their "mothers' club" talk, but they never took the hint!
