Jessica - May 12

I am 21 years old (still in college), but lately it seems like all of my friends and/or family members have been getting pregnant (whether on purpose or accident). I have been looking forward to the day that I can have my baby all my life, but lately I have been feeling really depressed. I have been on the pill for about 4 years now, so I know my chances of getting pregnant are highly unlikely, but every time it's time for my period, there's a little glimmer of hope right before I get it that maybe I won't get it this time. Then, when I do get it, I feel much disappointment. I have been feeling jealous and angry lately and very sad at times because I have this major urge to have a baby and it seems like everyone is pregnant but me. I know that this is not the best time for a baby since my boyfriend and I are still in college, but I have been having more and more of an urge for a baby every day now. Having a baby seems to be all I think about anymore. Is this normal? Has anyone else ever had this kind of problem? I'm sure I seem pathetic, but I guess I'm just looking for some kind of advice to help me not think about it so much... :-(

Hi Jessica! God gives every woman a desire to have a baby and be a mother one day. What you are feeling is normal I am sure! Sometimes our timing isn't God's timing . How long until you are finished with school? Are you and your boyfriend planning on getting married after school? I think a baby needs a mother and a father that are committed to each other for life. It is hard to tell someone not to think about having a baby all the time, but I did the same thing when I wanted to have a baby. I will be praying that God will help you in this area. have a great day!
