It is no secret that I have Baby Fever. I regularly day dream about having a baby. These are 5 things that I think are super common for Baby Fever Sufferers like myself to go through.
1. I want the bump. Every time I have a carb heavy meal I catch a glimpse of my little food baby in the mirror and just oo and awe at it. Little Baby Breadstick looks good on me! I really only gained the weight in my stomach - from the back you can't even tell I am pregnant.
Everyone knows someone who is the cutest pregnant lady, ever. If you don't just get on Pinterest and search "Pregnant Fashion" Baby Bumps are frickin' adorable!
2. Every time I see a sleeping teeny tiny baby I think "I want one that looks like me!" I'll be honest the crying ones don't make me want one as much. But it's the teensy tiny, itty bitty, fresh from the oven, all they do is sleep- those ones, that is the kind I want in a "Mary and Philip please" So I have 1 nephew and he looks like my side of the family! He is literally the cutest baby in the whole entire world.
Here's a story. The other day my whole family was together and I was holding TP and we were next to Philip. (I think Philip is super cute and hot) My husband has a nose, and he is Polish... Ok well TP leaned over and kissed Philip's nose. Just kissed it. I can't deal with that cuteness. My heart melts.
3. Going in a store that sells baby shoes is too much. Let's get real here, anything small is adorable. Baby shoes, little onesies, little hates, little gloves. I can't deal with them. They are overwhelmingly cute and small.
4. There are those kids that make my uterus ache. There is a family at our church who give me the worst baby fever ever. The dad works on staff with my husband they have 2 little blonde daughters. Philip and I are blonde so I am pretty much banking on having a blonde baby. And these girls, oh my gosh, they are the cutest. They dress insanely cute, they're blonde, they love to listen to the band at church and they dance the whole time. Since my husband is a worship leader - I can't take it! It's like looking into the future!
5. When I think about labor I think "eh I'm actually ok" I try to be informed about labor. Labor is horrifying to me so I want to prepared. I ask all the women I know about their labors, and I read a lot of blogs where women tell their birth stories. This is when the Baby Fever starts to break. Even hearing about epidurals makes me feel weak at the knees. I hate spines, I hate needles the combination of the too is nauseating. Hearing about 30 hours of terrible and intense pain, the tearing, the pushing, the pooping, then the whole facade starts to fade. I think to sum up my fears in one picture it would be this:
This is actually a picture of our dear friend's baby, Josie. She is adorable and so much fun! Thank you Rachel for letting me share this picture!
So that's it.
Do you have Baby Fever? Do you agree with these? What did I miss?
