In contrast, a couple days ago I was scanning my Facebook feed as I waited in the airport. I thought, Is there a post on here that doesn't have to do with a pregnancy or birth announcement?! I just wasn't in the mood for it. But when you're twenty-something and most your friends are married, it makes sense that they're posting about having babies. I mean, I am too, but my baby isn't living. Like I said before, I don't resent these people, I just wasn't in the mood to read about their bliss. Luckily, I didn't have to, and with one click I was no longer reading about ultrasounds, feeling baby kicks, and all that other exciting baby stuff.
I guess it's like anything though - sometimes you're just not in the mood for it. I mean, I like ice cream, but if I'm not in the mood I don't eat it. So I guess it's the same with pregnancy and babies. I like it. I even love it, but if I'm not in the mood to hear about it, I don't need to. I know that's not very profound, but it's reassuring to me to know that I'm in control and I don't need to subject myself to everyone else's baby bliss if I don't want to.
