Baby Fever

A few days ago I was reading the blog of my friend, Ina. She had posted about her unexpected pregnancy with baby number three. Ina had written that this was totally unplanned and was actually not the "right time" since she has so many things on her plate.

Yesterday I got an email from Vivien, a friend of mine from New York. I have not heard from Vivien in a while but we used to joke about how we wanted to be pregnant together. After she suffered a miscarriage, she was being really cautious about trying to conceive. Turns out she already is pregnant (and is actually due to deliver her baby on October 2nd).

Today, I got an email from my former co-worker (Shari) who wrote to tell me that another colleague of ours (Cherry) is pregnant. Cherry is newly married and didn't even want a baby the last time I talked to her. Now she is expecting a baby by January next year.

And just now, I was talking to Joy who told me that our helper, Diane, is 5 months pregnant! Diane wasn't even planning to have another baby. But she's with child!

OMG! Every one is pregnant! And the one thing they all have in common is they all did not plan to get pregnant. Maybe that's my problem. Maybe I'm trying too hard! I have to relax and just take it easy. There's BABY FEVER going around and maybe if I'm relaxed enough, I'll catch it too!

But it is not easy to be relaxed and just to wait for it.Joanne, I am also trying and trying it out so much but everytime I recognize the fails that month, I am really frustrated.And when my friend says their pregnency,sometimes, I am so jealousy and don't want to hear it anymore.This month(yesterday), finally I bursted out and cried when I was alone. And I thought giving a baby up. just live my life without baby. Trying, waiting, hoping and failing. I thougnt that I don't want to do anymore. But can I? can I give it up?:) Maybe I will be trying again next month. hhh. So hard, the title 'baby fever' is really for me.:) Good luck for both of us!

Hi Jin. I am so sorry to hear about your frustrations. I totally understand what you are going through. It sometimes seems so unfair, right? But we have to be strong and have faith that when the time is right, we will also be blessed. And if it's not meant to be, then perhaps our blessings are to be found in something else. Take care, my friend. Keep trying but don't let it get you down. I will pray for us both =) Who knows, it would be great if we got pregnant together then we could compare on what's going on with each other!? =)

P.S. How come you have not updated your blog???
