Welllll I have absolutely NO desire to have another child, but girl, my hormones SCREAM at me to get preggers again. I hear you, I dream about being pregnant, think about it, remember how great it was having a little life growing in me...

The best way for me to deal with it is go do something I love and know I couldn't do being pregnant. Like ride, drink, dance, hike mountains, vacation, whatever. All my older girlfriends are finally having their firsts! I have a 9 year old.
So JC is right. I go hang out with their newborns for a bit and that usually fixes me. But seeing them pregnant was TOUGH.

It's normal, and terribly frustrating at times. Our body is telling us one thing, our brains another.
Are you on birth control? That could be messing with your hormones, or you may need to get on some to help balance you out.

Either way hang in there and do get some GYN help if you can't shake it.

That's good description of it, I think. Hang in there. This, too, shall pass.

Oh I definitely know the feeling! I'm 30, not really in a relationship where kids will be a possibility at the current juncture, and I find myself getting the baby rabies too. I get the pregnancy dreams too, even though I know I'd completely flip my pancake if I actually got pregnant now!

Thankfully I have a gorgeous little "nephew" (I am an honorary auntie ) who is 3 months old that I babysit. He's quelled my urges in some ways and in some ways made them stronger! But for now I'm happy that I can give him back to his mom and dad when he's fussy!

Don't worry too much, it's normal. Are you on birth control? If you're able to be on the pill, it might help you regulate your hormones. I know I used to have terrible hormonal swings when I was younger- crying, flipping out on people, fighting over stupid things, the works. Being on the pill helped smooth me out a lot.

Lol baby rabies, I like that.
No, I am not on birth control. I have thought about trying it, I am a hormonal person with the crying over weird things and mood swings and such

If you are feeling hormonal the one thing that is nearly foolproof to revert those emotions is to 'borrow' a young baby and possibly their older sibling for a weekend.

At the end of a couple of sleepless nights, running around after them, answering the endless 'why' questions from a toddler it should be enough to put you off forever!

I agree with baby time. I have a coworker that LOVES babies but doesn't want one full-time lol. I also do agree that there's something about that biological time clock that ticks even when you don't want it to.

You may want to talk to your doctor about birth control to even out the wacky hormones. I went on it for my acne, and it has helped immensely. Also, you may want to check for hyper or hypothyroidism, which could have something to do with your depression.

Best of luck! As I said on your other thread, you can PM me if you need to talk.

Time to see your doctor for some tests to find out what's got out of whack. It happens sometimes, and it's fixable.
