Before I give you my reasons, I have a confession to make. You know how I have often said, I don't want to be pregnant, I've never really wanted to be pregnant. Well, that's a lie.
When I was in my teens, I often daydreamed about becoming pregnant and being a mommy. Other teenagers were daydreaming of falling in love, becoming a famous basketball player, and then there was me.
So, yes, a long time ago, I did in fact WANT to be pregnant.
Things shifted dramatically when I was twenty. My illness got severe, and it almost took my life. I would have eight more surgeries in the next eight years.
It was at that time, I began to shift from, I can't wait to be pregnant and have a baby to I hope we just adopt all our babies. We were lucky enough to adopt one. Although my baby was five when she came to us. .
Soon, we'll be embarking on a journey. One I am nervous to take, but I hope it works, because I do want to be pregnant. Maybe tomorrow I will do five reasons I want to be pregnant, but today I am writing:
Five Reasons I Am Scared To Become Pregnant
