I've considered writing a post on this topic for a while now. Each time deciding that it was just not the right time; or that it is such a personal topic I won't dare open myself up; or giving into the fear that I won't ever express myself adequately. I also feel horribly guilty writing about my just cause for postponing pregnancy, when there are so many of you who want nothing more than to be pregnant. And then I was given the opportunity to express my thoughts/feelings in a somewhat incognito way by just commenting on Rae's post. At first, nothing really came of my comment, and I was secretly happy because I still wasn't sure that I wanted to go here. But (there's always a 'but' isn't there?), a few days ago, Rae emailed to apologize for a comment that was left in response to mine; to let me know that she had deleted it and was sorry if I read it before she got to it. Being that I am the cat that curiosity will kill someday, I told her I'd like to see the comment. I'm glad I did. It gave me the push I needed to write on the subject of just cause as it pertains to postponing pregnancy. So, Rae, thank-you for being willing to share the comment with me. And Moe, thank-you for your comment. In fact, I started to reply in another comment and realized I just had to much to say.
Because this is in response to a comment, I've included the comment below. My reply is in bold type, Moe's comment is in italics. (I do not have an address to a blog of Moe's or I would link to it.)
