A couple weeks ago, I tweeted the following:

Now let me get this out of the way... I'm not pregnant. I waited two weeks for this post just so I could be sure when I say that I'm not pregnant. Yes I'm sure.

It seems like every time I sign into Facebook, I'm reading another announcement about some one I know popping out or about to pop out a little crotch parasite (a term of endearment I picked up from Aunt Becky) some point in the near future.

So babies have been on the brain, and for those 15 minutes until people started talking me down from the ledge, my thoughts were of the HOLY CRAP I DRANK THE WATER lines. I seriously thought I was going to end up pregnant after missing one pill. I didn't say I was rational.

It's not that DH and I won't start our own family of creation someday. But we just got married. Neither of us is ready to add a little Mochaface to the family dynamic.

So why can't I stop thinking about babies? I guess I'm at that age. You know that age. When everyone around you first gets married and then pops out wee ones.

I'm just grateful my biological clock has a snooze button. Because I've been hitting the shit out of it lately.

I always have baby fever. It's always a nice idea, then you start thinking about other things that go along with it. I suggest you have you and hubs time first, maybe make a plan of how many years you want to wait before you start trying. We did 5, and then it went to 3 lol. It's definitely a life changing experience, you dont have a schedule anymore, your life revolves around the baby. I love being a mom though, if I didn't want to be a mom I wouldn't have tried 6 months to get pregnant. I'm lucky though, some people it takes years. Ok i'm done haha.

Husband told me that my biological clock ticks so loudly it keeps him up at night... funny, I hadn't noticed it at all. But for the record, yes you can double up, if you can stomach it. I had to stop taking BC pills and switch to the patch because just one pill made me pukey.

Glad all is OK, Mochaface. :)
