I asked : "Do you think you will ever have children?"
57% said yes, I will make an excellent parent
21% said no, I never want kids
22% said I have never thought about it
What is interesting about this is, the people who actually want children may have a hard time conceiving; the people who said they never want children will probably end up with at least one and the people who have never thought about it are the people who are most likely to get pregnant by accident.
I was on birth control when I got pregnant so my daughter was a total fluke, the odds of me getting pregnant were 1% and somehow I ended up pregnant. I knew I wanted to have kids someday but I just didn't want kids at such a young age, I guess she really was meant to be. When my daughter turned 6 months old, I started trying to get pregnant with my second because I always knew that I wanted my children close in age (my child's father and his brother are 10 years apart...) anyways, I have a history of miscarriages, since I started trying I have had 3 and before I got pregnant with my daughter I had 2. I tried for a second child for just under 2 years before giving up. I still want more kids but the more time that passes, the more I'm sure it will never happen. My daughter is a blessing from God and I'm so thankful for her. In the 2 years I spent trying I met a lot of women who were trying as well, I never knew there were so many people that had trouble getting pregnant and I never thought I would be one of them, I got pregnant on birth control, I was sure I didn't have any problems but I do and I wish life was different sometimes but overall I'm happy with the way things turned out and I can now say I'm a firm believer in 'everything happens for a reason'.
If I would have answered this question a few years ago, I probably would have said "I have never thought about it" because at that point I never really did. What about you, what did you choose and why?
