Baby Momma Drama

I have a friend who has been trying to conceive a baby for the past five years or so. She has been posting her experience on her blog This Girls Journey and I have been following her encounters as she and her husband have tried to have a baby.  I am very happy that she has announced that she is in the early stages of pregnancy six weeks to be exact.  I am so excited for them because I know this is something they want and they have been trying for so long.
It is always so interesting to me that people who are mentally stable, financially stable, and mature have to try to have babies.  Meanwhile drug addicts, teens, and mentally unstable people can have as many babies as they want without even trying sometimes. 
Her most recent posts have been about all of the things that come with pregnancy.  Hunger pangs at 4am, morning sickness, lack of sleep and cramps.  As I read her post I go back and forth between using her experience to learn more about pregnancy and thinking I don’t want to have to go through that mess. 
Society says that it is time for me to have a baby.  All of the future grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and so on are ready.  But am I?  I am married and we just bought a house. In July, I turned 31.  I don’t have any kids right now but I know my window of opportunity is quickly about to slam shut.  Sometimes I think maybe I should go ahead and I have a baby right now.  But on the other hand I am honestly happy with my life the way it is and anyway graduate school keeps me busy enough.
