Not if you don't fully want kids. I say this as so many people have kids they dont want, love or take care of properly. Having kids is a hard but rewarding, 24/7 hands on experience. It is hard work. So if you dont feel 100% committed to the big changes, late nights and all that comes with kids maybe wait until you are sure. Dont have a child just because. Have one because you want one. You want to raise a child and give them a wonderful loving life.

Being a parent is hard work and can be very exhausting. You need to be mentally ready for it. When the time comes, you will realise you actually do want a child. For the time being, enjoy your life without the extra responsibilities :).

Why don't you just get a dog & pretend it's a kid like most people do these days. Cheaper

I was never going to have children, I didn't believe I wanted to be a mother and tbh I'm not the most maternal person! Both my children were conceived on birth control (one on the pill and the other on depo injection) they're now 12 and 14. I'm still not a baby or kid person, but I think if I got to my age now without having kids I think I'd feel like something was missing.

Would you rather not have kids and regret it, or possibly have kids and wish you didn't? Because yes, you can regret having kids.

Do you feel like you’ll be an old lady looking back at your life & regret not doing it? Then do it. Otherwise don’t.

You don’t have to have children just because everyone else seems to.
