I am 28 years old, and my boys are 7,8 and 9 years old. I had my babies early, and close together. My husband and I decided that 3 kids in 3 years is plenty, and so I got my tubes tied. I DO NOT regret that decision, as it was the best for us.... BUT... now my freaking body is SCREAMING to have a baby. It consumes my thoughts, my dreams, my LIFE. I rationally DO NOT want another baby, but I can't seem to focus on anything BUT babies. All of my friends are just now starting their families, and it is hard not to think of that. I actually had a dream that my hubby got another woman pregnant, and when I told him about the dream, and how I was sort of bothered by the fact that he could still have kids, he even offered to get a vasectomy!!!! How is that for support??? I just want to know if any other mom out there has gone through this, and if there are any suggestions to getting through it. I am prone to depression, and I can feel it tugging me in that direction. :/ So how about it Mama's??? Is there anybody out there that can suggest ANYTHING???? thanks.

We have talked about future adoption, but right now isn't the right time, simply b/c I am looking to advance in my career, and adding a new child would complicate that. We will be relocating in order for me to promote, so I don't want all that chaos at once! I have tried burying myself in work, but that hasn't helped. I've also tried to get back into scrapbooking, but all those pictures of my boys as babies just makes me feel sad and kind of empty. UGH! I shouldn't feel empty! I have 3 wonderful boys that are my life! *sigh* Thanks though, I have cried even now getting my periods, and I should be expecting them! lol

I feel for you... I use to cry when I got my period, wishing that it was a little one growing instead. I am also prone to depression. Since you already had the procedure, did you ever think of adopting? Maybe there's a baby out there calling for you.
