Coming clean.

Alright. It’s confessional day on Blogged Bliss. I know many of you who read personally…and a handful of you I don’t. But I have a secret only a couple of you are aware of…and I’ve gotten to the point where I’m tired of hiding it.

I’ve got baby fever.

::deep exhale from weight lifted off shoulders::

Any of you who do know me know this might be the most opposite of anything you’d ever think would come out of my mouth (or fingers) – aside from me announcing I was getting married.

I was the girl in grade school, and I think even high school – where I was stoked to be a single girl forever living in a fancy loft in a big city, with my babies being my cats. The only part of that that’s true is the big city. Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely happy with the way my life has turned out – it’s just weird how my idea of my future changes with every year.

The hubs and I have talked about having kids just about as long as we’d discussed getting married. It was inevitable that we were going to get married, and the same applies to having kids. We finally kind of decided that we are going to start trying later this year. I’m both deathly afraid and totally elated about getting pregnant. And I’m also extremely scared that for whatever reason I won’t be able to.

Okay. That’s enough on that topic. I could go on and on about it…but I’d rather not be that girl.

Also – don’t be confused. I still get crabby with screaming babies and annoying brats. They’re not all cute. I don’t want them all. I just think it’d be kinda cool to have my own someday.

And, discuss.

Baby fever – get it?! Oh, my sides.

My guilty pleasure.

So, I have a confession to make. I have a guilty pleasure. You could maybe even call it an obsession.

I’m a lurker on the “Babies on the Brain” discussion board on

This is nothing I’m proud of, and more than likely gives the wrong impression – that I have babies on the brain. It’s more like I have “ladies obsessed with getting pregnant and being pregnant” on the brain. It’s become a form of entertainment for me.

It’s a known fact that nerds and geeks have their own languages when they’re LARPING or playing D&D or Magic: The Gathering. Well, I’m here to tell you, so do ladies on this board.

I don’t know what it is, but I check this board at least once a day to read up on things. There’s a woman on this board who’s been trying for like, a year and a half to get pregnant, and a lot of the other girls on there have a “blinkie” in their signatures rooting for her to do so. It’s like, a whole new subculture of people and language – and I’m hooked. They all announce when they’re pregnant, share stories of morning sickness and rude comments from people about their preggo bellies, and flame on idiot girls who make stupid posts.

Now let me again reiterate that I, by no means, want to be pregnant or have a baby right now. We just got married, and haven’t even moved into our house yet. So – I’d like to live my life for another year or two before I start spawning off little jerks. (I mean that in the nicest way.) But, for whatever reason – I find that board and all the ladies on it most entertaining.

Anybody else care to share their guilty pleasure? Everyone has at least one.

Comments – Go.
