I never wanted children or to be married.
I grew up in a very unhappy home and to me that's what a marriage was. Never wanted it.
Then I met my now husband and he changed everything for me!!
Married for 9 years and 3 beautiful daughters.
I'm glad I met him ❤️

Yes and wanted them youn I left home at 18 lives abroad travelled for 4 years so that if the opportunity presented itself I could have kids at 23/24
I could have had 4. But happy with my 2.
I ended up pregnant at 26, which was ok but I’d have preferred to have my last at 26/27.

I always wanted a big family. As many kids as I could possibly have. I wanted at least 5. Unfortunately I had terrible hyperemesis for the 2 pregnancies I did manage to carry and I had a miscarriage and there's a strong likely hood that any future pregnancies will result in miscarriage so my body is against my big family plan. Unfortunately I don't think I could handle going through it all again so I've had to give up on my idea of a big family and settle for an average one. As a kid I used to say that I would have 11 babies 😂

How/why did you get pregnant if you didn't want them?

I wrote this comment and at the time I was really young and busy working. I had just moved to Australia. So at that time I didn’t want children. Then I found out I was pregnant at an ultrasound for a “cyst” and I was 20 weeks! Once you see that baby everything changes! Don’t tell me I should be infertile that’s disgusting. My son is now 11 and I have another child a girl who is 9. Wouldn’t change them for anything. So you all need to grow up and stop the witch hunt

I feel the same, but for me I just fell in love and it was a desire to have kids with that person..despite never wanting kids before. I surprised a lot of people

I didn't have like a deep maternal desire to have them, but knew I would have kids, if that makes sense. Like I was happy to get married, but didn't have my wedding planned out when I was 12yo like some people lol.

I always did. All I ever wanted was to be a mother. I gave up and thought it'd never happen. Then it did. I'm the luckiest in the world, dreams do come true.

Not until I married my husband, which was when I was 35. Before then I thought motherhood wasn’t for me.
