New OBEM and feeling sad :(


I've just been watching a new episode of One Born Every Minute and it's making me really sad.

Me and my husband would love another baby but can't at the moment but watching that program made all the broodiness come flooding back full force!!!

My little man is 7 months now and doesn't want to sit and cuddle as much, he just wants to do more on his own. I am still breastfeeding because i couldn't imagine not having that closeness with him. I just miss when he was so little and i was constantly needed

I'm also babysitting my little brother (he's 3) for a few days and its made me realize how much more i would love another child. I treat him like my own as i raised him when he was a baby and i just love the thought of having two kids!

I guess i'm just feeling a little empty at the moment but the right time will come along before i know it and next thing we'll have a house full lol!

Hope all you WTT ladies are okay! Sorry for the mini - kinda - rant :P

xxx

Sorry you're feeling so down right now. Your baby still needs you! You're giving him nourishment, comfort, and security everyday. Remember, every time he's able to do something else independently, it's because of the care and security that he gets from YOU. I know it still just ends up feeling like you're less and less needed, but it's a sign of the great job that you've been doing for 7 months.

One born does that to me everytime but I cant help but watch it, my heart aches when i see a baby, im trying to busy myself for the next 12 weeks by doing a 12 week diet to lose 1 to 2 stone and become healthy but we are at risk of having to push the date back, im not thinking about that now though, the push back will only happen if other things dont therefore im doing all i can to ensure the others do and il only know nearer the time that i have to push back therefore i can be like ok I waited 6 months and that went ok im sur ei can wait another ...months until we can try.

Sorry you're feeling empty - I know the feeling and haven't found a way to make it disappear either. Your little man might not be so helpless anymore, but he needs you so much! The fact that he wants to do his own thing means you're doing a great job of making him feel secure and loved. You are his "harbour" that makes him brave enough to go out and explore the world, he knows he can find safety if he needs it. So while he may not want to sit and cuddle as much, maybe try and figure out what he is needing and do that with him instead? Playdoh squishing or "colouring in" or ripping petals off flowers... he needs you to guide him to develop his motor skills and awareness of the world around him. Moms are for more than just cuddles!! xx

I spend every episode hiding behind a pillow with the volume down/crying because i'm so pleased for the couple to be so happy with their new baby. The last season dropped off my series link and i started watching it on more4, except i didn't realise it was the same season, anyway DH watched it with me for the first time in years and it was that episode when that poor couple lost their baby I don't think DH will be doing that again anytime soon.

I've been watching the US version, not as good but i like the adoption stories. Also, it creeps me out that the narrator is Jaime Lee Curtis and the main thing i watched her in was Halloween and the fact it zooms in to show the cameras in the ceiling... weird.

i think the us one isnt as good but i guess thats because we are used to the uk one, had the us one been out first that would prob be seen as better lol. I sobbed my heart out at that couple losing their baby, they looked so strong after but you could see their hearts breaking into little pieces.

I used to love OBEM before I had DS but I can't watch it now. I get far too emotional and it brings everything from my labour and birth back. I end up not being able to sleep as I have it all going round in my head for hours and hours Maybe one day I'll be able to enjoy it again!!

I thought after that really sad one i'd watch the next to cheer me up, and that poor lady having her baby stuck, it was by far the most terrifying episode i've ever seen!

I love OBEM but I only watch the UK one. It makes me very broody too but I love the show and hearing how the couples met and what hopes and dreams they have for the baby. Great show.
