Well, that’s not true. I have “lots.”
I just don’t know if I’m ready or brave enough or comfortable enough to share.
What will people think about the fact that I want to experience pregnancy, and labor, and breastfeeding, and lots of other “parenty” things, but that I don’t want to be a parent?
What will people think about how selfish I sometimes feel about NOT wanting to be a parent, when there are so many people out there who can’t have babies, or who have miscarriages, or whose babies die just before their due date, or whose babies die shortly after birth?
What will people think about the fact that my new doctor thinks that I’m still really conflicted about our decision not to become parents? (And about the fact that I
think know he’s right?)
And just to lighten the mood, here’s a picture of some… um… baby geese and their parents. 🙂
