The baby fever that is, and it ain't no joke! I am totally and completely blaming this on all my girlfriends who have kids. ALL YOUR FAULT! I have developed from this person who used to ditch my friends with kids into this person who wants you to bring your baby when we hang out. It's such a strange thing for me! Stop having the cutest kids ever and maybe that will solve it. Or maybe if I could stop getting older that would help? I don't know but it's got to stop!!

It's been sloooowly creeping up on me over the past couple of years though. I found this post I did back in October 2011, first one from my Baby Fever label. Kinda makes me laugh now to think I felt "behind everyone" then and I was only 5 months away from getting engaged and just one year out from being single. Nice plot twist there...
So this is how it works when you're in your late 20's and single:
-You will date guys with kids now
-You have a cut off age for when you want to have kids
-You have a guy friend who you have already contracted his sperm, should you still find yourself single around that cut off age
-You realize that by your age, your parents already had multiple kids
-Your family starts skipping the "when are you getting married" and go straight to the "when are you having kids" questions
-You have researched freezing your eggs
-You definitely have your baby names picked out so things can proceed quickly, if necessary
I hope you are laughing right now because that is the straight up truth and you know it!! I only have 6 years until my cut off age y'all. That is some scary business!! I hate that I even think of these things and can't just be patient during this season of waiting. No wonder men think all women are crazy.... let's face it, we are.
