Let’s Get Real…

This past weekend the bf and I got a chance to be around some friends, friends who are engaged, friends who are dating and some babes. Some wonderful little babes. Littles who eat their toes, who can’t quite crawl/walk yet, who need constant attention, who need diaper changes and mouthes to be wiped because they are drooling and just need two loving people to care for them.

I want little ones, definitely. But do I want them right this second – kinda and then no…not now. I think that being preggers can be super cute, because goodness knows there are tons and tons of fashion blogger moms out there that make it look so dang easy. And then there is morning sickness, and sore boobs, and sore feet and really just not feeling like yourself or in your body.

There is so much pressure now a days to get a house, to get engaged, to live together and then to produce. BAM – all in a row. Like we really don’t have that much time to do all this before women’s fertility  “peaks at 28”. Oy – that is a short time frame. Not to mention the fact that some of us are still trying to make it out there in this huge world. So many challenges, and pressures and just all around choices.

So what do we do? 

Not quite sure I have the answer, nor do I think one answer will suffice for every one. I do know that for me…it is definitely not a super easy question. I want to be married, and have a house and have two little monkeys I can call my own and a fur baby of course. But gosh dang-it that stuff takes time…and let’s not forget money up the wazoo.

So I shall just be like a normal 27 year old lady, who’s eggs are cookin’ and life is shakin’ and I shall just be…and when these things do happen, they will happen at the right time for me – I hope!

Thanks for reading xoxo

  1. There’s no rush. You’ll know when the time is right for you. It’s your life. No body else has to pay your mortgage, live with your spouse and be a parent to little one(s). It’s ok to chill on it.

  2. It’s funny, I’m 28 (nearly 29!!!) and I feel like my ovaries have suddenly awoken and I really want a baby, like right now. And then reality sets in and I realize maybe I’m not quite ready? And while I agree 30 is definitively not the new 20 (I couldn’t stay up and party like I used to!) being 30 now is quite different from a generation ago. Thankfully we have more time / less pressure to start a family…

    I agree. There’s no rush. I had my boys in my mid-30s and have zero regrets on waiting to start a family. We’ve totally enjoyed the ride thus far and looking forward to the rest of it.
