I've been lurking for a while on TN boards, but now I'm taking a plunge and asking you ladies a very big question I've been thinking about for a while now : Why do you want a baby? Why would someone wants to make babies??
So I guess this question, which pretty much comes out of nowhere, needs some context... I've been with my fianc? for 4 years now and we're getting married in a couple of months. Since I first started my bachelor's degree 6 years ago (now finishing the masters), it was clear for me that I wanted to do the big bachelor/master/phd degrees trio before I even consider having babies. Right now, I still have 3 year before I reach that ''school'' goal. I was always clear on that part with my fianc?, and he said he was fine with it.
But a few months ago, a while after we got engaged, I realised that something as shocking as puberty was happening inside me : I think I started to feel maternal instinct!! I just feel so weird around babies, toddlers, or even when I even think about babies!
I talked about it to my fianc? recently, and I told him that maybe I want to have babies sooner than I expected. He asked me why I want a baby, and quite frankly, and cannot even answer this question! I am a very rational and logic person and I feel that what I'm feeling right now is... instinct?
But why would I/you/anyone want a baby? How can a desire to bring a new life to this Earth can be logically explained?
Well, thanks for sharing your reflexions!
