I'm 25, from England, in a current relationship & dont have any children. But recently, I have been very drawn to babies and i dont know why! is this normal? or is it just the 'Mother/Maternal instinct'?? its just pictures, thinking about babies names, what it will feel like when i am pregnant, what it will be like when i hold my child in my arms for the first time, the fact that i will have something that is half me and have my partner, and just can imagine ourselves as parents. I cant explain it, but just feels like I am ready. (well my heart is saying i am) I explain to my boyfriend i even though i dont want to have a baby right now, i dont really want to wait WAY too long before i have a baby either (i was thinking later 20s - early 30s) im not sure he understands totally how it must feel for a female, but i think he is trying his best too! he is easy to talk to and we talk about when we will eventually be parents in the future. I know babies are alot of responsibility and i cant afford to have one at the moment and i dont think i am ready to have one at the moment. But did any other mothers go through this phase?? another idea was that maybe my body is making me aware that im ready to have a baby whenever im ready, even if im not ready right now.
