my uterus wants babies now arrrgahh

This is the first time in nine months that I have been off birth control for more than a week. Its been two and a half weeks since I took my last pill, and my uterus has certainly realized and gotten persistent with the “HAVEBABIESNOW” efforts.

As much as I want children someday (three to be precise), I am in no place to have children now.

Settle down uterus. Settle down.

Baby blues.

Does anyone else on continuous birth control pills (take 3 months at a time, or more) get horribly maternal desires? I want to hold a newborn to my chest so bad it hurts, and I spend a lot of time looking at baby information or pictures of babies on Pintrest.

All this progesterone tricking my body into thinking it’s pregnant is helping the bleeding and some of the physical pain (I’ve even had some pain-free hours on and off!), but these desires for a baby are really tough. I’m glad my brain can at least realize that now is not the time for that, and I don’t want all the rest of the things that come with having children right now… but it’s getting harder and harder for that voice of reason to break through…
