Confession: I Wanna Have a Baby

I can’t believe I’m saying it either. Up until now I’ve relished in the fact that I’ve been 100% kid free. I can get up and go when I please, spend all of my money on myself and only have to think about taking care of myself. It has been a nice feeling, I can’t deny it. But something has happened to me all of a sudden. I don’t know if it’s turning 33 or what but I’m really starting to feel “the baby itch.” I was thinking about it today and I was asking myself, why are you making such a big deal about this? You can handle it. And you know what, I think I can. I just have to stop being afraid. Stop worrying about losing my independence or freedom. The rest is up to Allah.

  1. Salaam.I came across your blog when I was looking for muslimah clothings online so I thought why not extend my salaam to you.I enjoyed reading some of your posts.I’m a virgin blogger..haha…Anyway,Insya Allah, Allah will bless you with a baby.It’s a beautiful thing,and something that you would love more than yourself.Hope we can correspond again.

  2. Take it from a mom… it has to be the most fulfilling, powerful and beautiful thing… being a mom and sharing yourself with the life that came from you, masha Allah, there is nothing like it. Insha Allah you will be rewarded with this blessing.
