    okay, this might sound weird.. i'm not sure. for the past... i don't know... 2-3 weeks now i've been incredibly maternal.. well, just thinking about babies and really wanting a baby and stuff.. everywhere i look there's something to do with babies/children.
    it's never happened before. i mean, i've wanted a baby before, but never this much. it's pretty much all i can think about at the moment.
    has anyone ever felt like this? if so.. do you know why?
    i'm just so confused. why now? of all times?!

    maybe you want someone to care for, maybe you want someone to care for you back...maybe you're lonely. maybe you want to feel loved by a child :dunno:

    or maybe you're just feeling very loving. my counsellors said that with all these feelings of wanting to take care /look after someone can be turned inward, to look after yourself first :hug:

    there could be lots of reasons why you're feeling like this. maybe you know better than anyone here.

    maybe theres part of your brain thats thinking 'what if i could start over' and thats triggering the broody part. but really what you need to do is not start over but carry on. when your ready to have a baby you'll know but i think you need to work on yourself before thinking about having a baby :hug:

    thanks for the replies
    it's just... i don't know what's triggered this off and i don't like not knowing.
    i suppose i'll just have to deal with it... let it go away on it's own

    i never thought of it that way but yeah, that makes a lot of sense crookxshanks, the thing of having a clean slate, etc

    maybe you should ask, what does 'having a baby' mean to you?
