Babies, Boobies and Blogging

10.05.07 (3:29 pm)   [edit]

Re-reading my first ever blog post, I realized I was way too serious. I do understand why it ended up that way though. Once I get started on this fertility issue I tend to either get overly technical or dramatic. Either way, I go in serious mode. To shed my "serious" aura on this blog let me confess silly things that add to my wanting a baby. Please do not misinterpret this post though as one reflecting my general frame of mind I just want to make sure this blog gets injected with a bit of fun and positivity. So here goes...

  1. Boobies - I'm flat chested and having babies will give me boobies.
  2. PMS - I have a really bad time days before and during my periods. I want at least 9 months of rest from my period!
  3. Anti-social tendencies - There are Fridays when I don't feel like going out with my co-workers. If and when I have a baby I will always have a convenient excuse.

I can't think of anymore right now..thankfully. Since listing those stupid things made me a bit guilty. Embarassed


On to blogging. I can't figure out why I can't upload my pic here on Tblog. Can anyone help me out? I keep on clicking on the add images but NOTHING happens. Oh well.

I also found out that I had to post something here to be added to Technorati. Anyway here it is my Technorati Profile . Support my new blog!


Wanting a Baby and Going for It

It would seem that something which means poverty, disorder and violence every single day should be avoided entirely, but the desire to beget children is a natural urge.  ~Phyllis Diller

Wanting a baby is natural. It doesn't matter what your background or circumstance might be. The desire for your own children is a universal thing. The sad part is that many have tried and are trying to have one but without much result. Whatever situation might be it is important for you to educate yourself further to be able to achieve your goal of finding a child to love and call your own.

Before you even try to get pregnant, and even if you are already trying, it is important that you equip yourself with at least a basic knowledge about conception, pregnancy, and parenting. This includes everything from your reproductive system to parenting styles. For those who haven't tried to conceive yet then reading about the "how tos" of conception would be very useful. For those who have tried again and again but are having problems getting pregnant you should try to keep a positive attitude and prepare for the coming of your child as if it is ready to arrive soon. Educate yourself even more and keep up with the latest in technology. If all else fails keep an open mind and heart and consider alternative solutions like AI, a surrogate mother, and adoption. If you already have children of your own and are aiming for another one then learn from your previous experiences but couple this with new knowledge garnered through research.

Again whatever your situation is, take some time to arm yourself with knowledge. Once you have the knowledge you need go ahead and start making a baby. Just make sure you enjoy yourself in the process! If you still do not conceive despite having followed all the suggestions and advice in a years time then it is time to add one member to your team - a fertility specialist.
