I'd have a serious career and be doing more hobbies and travel on the weekends. I wouldn't say it would be a bad life but it still makes me sad to imagine. It took us a long time to get a successful pregnancy and we really, really wanted kids so unless all that had never happened, I think I'd feel pretty sad and empty about not having any babies.

i think my pets actually put a damper on our plans more than carlos.
my husband always has opportunities to work for a year in european countries (before and after baby) and we cant do those things because moving our pets isn't really an option. neither is getting rid of them!

I'd probably still be working a 9-5 job, saving up enough to move away from this town.
I might not have smoothed things out with my husband, I'd probably still be stuck in that silly church, and I never would have discovered my passion for birth, the only career field I have remained interested in for a long period of time.

I think having kids was a very good thing for me, they gave me the motivation to stand up for myself and them and take responsibility for my life.

Working a job I hated, making a lot of money that wasn't worth the stress or unhappiness. Baby boy isn't even here yet and I've seriously never been happier since I left my job.

DH and I would still be playing massive amounts / hours of WoW. I so like my life better the way it is now.

Gentle parenting is about guiding instead of controlling,
connecting instead of punishing,
and encouraging instead of demanding.
It's about listening, understanding, responding and communicating.

Probably nothing useful. After deciding that we were ready for kids and trying for so darn long to have Eleanor, I would probably be a depressed mess right now if we didn't have her. If we hadn't decided to have kids when we did, I guess that I would have maybe gotten a job using my degree, but I was kind of disillusioned by the time I finished, so I'm really not sure.

Honestly? I'd be either nowhere good or dead. I was on a bad track before Ashlynn came along and she literally saved my life
