Baby Boom

A couple of months ago started feeling like I should have another baby. I found it odd that all of the sudden I had this urge to have another baby. Then I started noticing that everywhere I go I am surrounded by pregnant women! I started telling my family about how everyone is pregnant! I could tell they thought I was exaggerating.  It would be safe to assume my dream of having a big family was getting the best of me... well they were wrong! 

Today in my play group two more women announced they are pregnant. My good friend said, "It is so strange. Everyone except me is pregnant!" I commiserated with her and said I feel the exact same way. Then we looked around the room and did a head count. Out of 20 moms who attend the play group only 3 were not pregnant! All of the moms said it is the same at church, in their families, everywhere. I don't know if this is just a strange baby boom or what, but it gave me pause for thought.

I don't feel the need to be pregnant because I want a large family (I do want a big family), or because my baby is not so much a baby anymore, but because almost everyone I know is pregnant! If I found out I am joining the baby boom I would not be upset but I don't feel that urge to be pregnant anymore.
