Baby fever — it can be a mean thing to catch. I’ve had it for over a year now. Some call it a “biological tick” this feeling that time to start (or keep) procreating is here and you must have a baby. It’s a weird thing to explain and can be hard to understand if you’ve not experienced it yourself.
There are many different reasons why one would have a baby — and I believe it’s a decision that should be thought about before it happens (when that is possible, I know sometimes it’s not, & I’m not saying that’s bad). I also think that while baby fever can make us think some interesting things at time, it’s important to realize the “why” behind our baby fever. Is it something you’re trying to fix? Is this desire for a baby about something more than wanting to expand your family?
