Why is it that women who are trying to concieve constantly punish ourselves?
No, I’m not talking about physically punishing ourselves... but mentally and emotionally.
For instance... for years and years and years I have subscribed to parenting magazines eventho I have no children...but I honestly enjoy reading them because I know one day when I do have a child... all that information I’ve read about different things will help in my parenting skills.
And another thing I do... I collect baby name books... so far in my collection I have 7. Most of which... have the same names in them! Explain that one! But... I will rifle through them and ask my hubby "do ya like this one..do ya like that one?"... at this stage..whats the point? Its not like we’re pregnant and have a soon-to-be baby to name. I dont know... guess I’m just a glutten for punishment..
And I also listen to these sad songs about TTC and stuff... WHY? Why do I do that to myself!?!
