I sometimes wonder though whether I might have found something else to obsess about or be disatisfied with....
I've thought about this too and no, I don't thnk my life would be "perfect".... but I wouldn't be obsessing about anything else quite like I obsess about GD....and I think I know the reason why too...
Because EVERYTHING ELSE IN LIFE I CAN CONTROL TO SOME EXTENT:
* don't like my house? Move
* Hate my job? Get another one.
* Feeling dissatisfied with my career? Go back to school and study something I enjoy
* Can't stand DH? Divorce and marry another one.... (ok, this last thing I completely mean in jest but even a DH can be replaced if you're miserable kwim?)
The only thing 100% out of my control, that I am powerless to do anything about...the thing that it doesn't matter how hard I work, study, pray, beg or plead is having a healthy, baby girl.... and I don't know if it will ever happen. If ME, 20 yrs from now could come back and tell me, "Yeah, don't worry....she comes after a night of drinking and sex in Cancun", then I could relax.
Another thing... kids (what you get and when you get them) is all TIME DEPENDENT.... its not like I can shove this off to the back burner for a few years and focus on something else.... nooooooooooooooooo.... my eggs are degenerating by the minute. It has to be SOON or never. Talk about added pressure!
