Everybody is pregnant.

(I do not know the person in this pic but it is super adorable.)

Everyone seems to be pregnant lately.  A sampling of those expecting:

My cousin's daughter is pregnant too, and my nephew just had a baby.  Plus several of my friends either just had babies, are currently pregnant, or are trying.  It's baby-insanity.

And they're all adorable.

I was not adorable during my pregnancy.  I was tired and miserable, and I carried my weight all over instead of just in the belly.  Then when Kiddo was about 1 1/2 I wanted to start on a sibling for her, but I got divorced instead.  Then Hubby and I married and after a few years of debate, he got a vasectomy instead.  (I was very angry about that for a few years, but now I am grateful.)

Babymaking is one of those things - like running a marathon - where I don't want to DO it, necessarily, but I still can feel a little left out when everyone else is doing it.

Baaaaa.  I am a sheep.  But, as usual, I am the black sheep.

Does this remind you of any situations in your life?  Let me know in the comments section!


  1. you are a saint. I am not adorable! I have been so sick I feel like a brick shit house and getting dressed is a NIGHTMARE. All I do is complain about how tired I am and how nothing fits and I feel so unlike myself all the time. Seriously my ego has taken a beating. (not that I had a healthy one to start with)

    I felt so leftout. I had fertility problems and I got angry and upset a lot. THEN i get pregnant and no joke 2 family members do one a week late another soon after and now another person. I wanted to be in the club now I am a jerk and mad that I didn't have even a month of being the special one.

    1. Aww. :( I have several friends who have been TTC for years. Then as they get pregnant, the ones remaining who are still trying are so sad. It is hard to watch.

      I don't know your family, so to me you are the only preggo in your family, and I think you are TOTALLY adorable. Hang in there, hun. It's a temporary situation!

  2. I definitely feel left out, especially as I consider myself someone who will probably always be childfree. I just don't see it in my future. But what's worse is I get a lot of flack in real life and get the online disconnect from friends and bloggers who are in that transitional part of their life. I'm just not experiencing it.
