I don't want to TTC. I don't want to be pregnant.

I don't mind giving birth. But ultimately I just want a baby.

Thats it.

I completely understand. I have said before I would have another if my baby just appeared.

I don't want to TTC (infertility) or be pregnant (risky incompetent cervix).

Why can't we just click our fingers sad.gif

Or as the doctor said to me "if I could wave a magic wand ..." I'm not sure I want to go through pregnancy, doesn't sound like fun. I keep saying to myself that it might not be so bad for me, and that it's a sacrifice you have to take to have a baby.

I love that Target ad where the Stork brings the couple their baby complete with goodies from Target. I wish it was that easy.

Nope - not good enough. Lost my last pregnancy at 20 weeks so I have lost my naivete that a perfect scan at 12 weeks = a baby. So I plan to skip all that this time and go straight to the sleepless nights and endless feeding.

I so know what you mean.

I have been wanting to write a post just like this one for a long time, but didn't know how to word it!

My son died when he was a day old, completely unexepectedly. So I just want to go to the day we bring a healthy baby home.

Don't mind the TTC bit.

Don't want to do the pregnancy and birth thing.

But so want to have a rainbow baby to fill up my empty arms and heal my heart sad.gif
