    • Maybe it’s the fear of the empty nest- that time after your children leave and before the grandchildren come?

    • It could be both, the empty nest thing, and knowing you cant. And by then, you may have forgotten all the rough stuff.Childbirth , no sleep, crying , tantrums...

    • I think it is all of those things, but it’s caused by the fluctuation of the hormone change. Some women have a more drastic change than others.

      I had my hysterctomy early in life due to endometriosis (I was 38) and I was very fortunate in that I didn’t suffer greatly from the hormones. I never got the baby blues or even got depressed that I remember, which is strange because I suffer severely from depression periodically!! My endo was so bad by the time I had surgery, though, my uterus was completely engulfed in tumors and I was bleeding very heavily... constantly. My body must have just been relieved to be rid of it all so it didn’t reject the change.

      I did all my suffering beforehand!! tongue out

    • Call me crazy, but I’m not thinking of any such thing. I’m not even in a rush to be a grandmother.

    • I sometimes dream that I am going to have or have a baby. What is really wierd is I can recall exact detail what the baby looks like. I can not remember vividly any other dream. I wonder what that is all about?
