Like "Birth Day", "A Baby Story" and "Maternity Ward"? I record them while I'm at work when I know they are coming on. Even my DS is watching them with me. I think I'm losing all remnants of a "Real Life". What happened to my identity, I ask? At least I have sorority tonight!

Can anyone join this club? I'm right there with you..I don't know why I'm so addicted. I do not work, so I sometimes watch first thing in the a.m. while all is quiet. Maybe I'm trying to scare myself out of wanting another baby?!? I just love the whole pregnancy and delivery thing so it usually only makes me more determined. Hopefully everyone on the board will have their own sweet story to tell soon. BFP vibes to all!

ok... that is so funny! i've noticed that i watch those shows all the time too. while i'm flipping through the tv, if i spot on, it'll definitely stay on 'til the end of the episode. i think it's just because i'm obsessed with wanting to be in their situations -- i.e. having a baby right now. don't get me wrong, i wouldn't want to switch places with some of the women who are having lots of complications but i would like to switch places with the women who are having normal birth experiences with healthy and happy babies in the end. i'm also just fascinated with the whole pregnancy, birth experience. it's kinda weird because when i found out i was pregnant, i thought about labour and birth and was really scared. now that i'm not pregnant and i'm just wanting to be, i think how excited i would be to go through it all. when/if i do get pregnant again i'll really look forward to all the labour/delivery pain and stuff. it's such a cool thing that women have done since the begninning of time. i want to join the club, you know? unfortunately i'm still waiting to see if AF will come. i'm only 5dpo. ugh! i still have to wait another 8-9 days!!! i really hope AF doesn't show up and i'm pregnant. i have been having some strange symptoms this week -- cramps. is that normal to get cramps so soon after i've ovulated? i've had them now for 2 days. ok... just had to reply to this message b/c it fit me to a tee! all the best to everyone else!
