I didn't want any when I was in high school. When I got pregnant at 18, I actually considered adoption. I am glad that I didn't because I wouldn't have it any other way now! I love being a mom. I would have several more if I had the ability

I always knew I was going to be a mom. At first we wanted one or two. Then we were "done" at three. Then #4 was a complete surprise and we decided we wanted a dozen, LOL!

I used to never want kids. I hated babysitting. I hated other people's kids. About a year after we got married, my SIL had her second baby and my sister had her first. Suddenly babies didn't seem like such a bad thing. Glad I changed my mind when I did because I got pregnant a week after my sister had her daughter.

I have always wanted kids since I was little. My mom wasn't surprised at all when I got married at 19 and found out we were expecting shortly after our wedding (well after basic training since he left almost immediately after our wedding).

Always wanted kids. I started babysitting as soon as I was old enough, and was actually thrilled (and terrified) when I got pregnant at 19.

Ive always wanted kids. When I was 5 and people always ask you what you want to be when you grow up....my answer was always that I wanted to be a mommy.

I've always wanted kids. When I was little all I really wanted to be was a mom. I'd rather be a SAHM than work a full time job outside the home but we can't afford it

I never really thought of having children when I accidentally got pregnant 12 years ago. And really didn't want any more. I think mainly because it just wasn't a good emotional experience the first time around. But that obviously changed as the years went by and especially after I met my husband.

I did NOT always want children, in fact, I got a tattoo of dolphins around my belly button when I was "never having children" lol! Because that was my response to my Mom when she told me that it would become shamu when I got pregnant! ha ha so far it's fared well!

That is too funny!!


I have always wanted children. It was never a question growing up. I loved kids and enjoyed being around little ones for as long as I can remember. DH on the other hand, had to be convinced with our first and it nearly killed me trying to make him realize that I HAD to be a mom. Now it is adorable to see how attached they are to each other. He was never around children growing up and I think he was honestly terrified of the unknown.

Yep, always wanted them. Always wanted a big family being an only child and all. DH and I used to want 12 but then after the c/s's we are putting our limit at 5. Right now he wants the 5th more than I do. I'm liking the 4 we have now.

Nope. I was never getting married and never having kids. I had a career that I loved, and a lifestyle that was all about me. Then I met my DH, and we accidentally got pregnant in the year prior to our wedding, but miscarried at 13 weeks. That started the baby bug, and it was another 4 years before we had our first.

Always. I broke up with my last boyfriend before DH because he didn't. Elliot and I thought we wanted like 6 though, and now we laugh at how crazy we were before we had one. Two is plenty for us! Shut it down!

I never wanted kids before I had my daughter. I'm the oldest of 7 biological children (plus 2 step sisters). I hated it growing up. I never liked babysitting and I always hated other people's kids. When we were surprised to be pregnant with DD, DF was excited...me, not so much. It took me until my anatomy scan when I found out she was a girl to really get into the pregnancy. Now, I can't imagine not having kids but I'm pretty sure 3 is my limit.
