Baby Drama, or not....

Every few years it seems all my coworkers, friends and family go through a baby making  cycle.

It gets me all worked up about having my own bundle of spit up joy.

So I figured I'd make a list to remind me why Mr. Harer and I are waiting to have a family.

Reasons to have a baby right now;

  1. Risk of general complications increases with age.
  2. Diabetes related risks, increase with age
  3. Pressure from friends and family is steadily increasing.

Reasons to wait to have a baby;
  1. Doing clinical rotations while pregnant would not be fun.
  2. I will make significantly more $$$ after I finish school.
  3. Our house is too small for Mr. Harer and I (and the dogs) a baby won't fit.
  4. My A1c needs to be lower.

Reasons not to have a baby at all;
  1. Babies are expensive
  2. The idea of a diabetic pregnancy is scary
  3. Sheila will be jealous

  1. Ah yes, but God is in control...and your bundle will (or won't) come according to His timing, clinicals or not :)
