What made you decide to have a baby?

And during the decision process did part of you want a baby, and part of you not really and you got pregnant anyways? Or were you 100 % sure you wanted one before you tried to conceive?

  • I have always wanted kids but my first 2 werent planned and the one that Im carrying now (we just found out Monday) we were planning it just wasnt happening and then I started to get sick and took a test for poops and giggles and it came back that I was pregnant! So I have always wanted them but maybe not this way but I wouldnt change it for the world!!

  • well with me its a funny story.. me and my DH knew we wanted kids but wanted to wait a year or so.. well we were using protection [i wasnt on BC cause it screwed my whole body up when i was on it] and we never had any issues or "accidents" with breakage or anything like that..

    so then being the forgetful person i am.. thought i was like 2 weeks late when really i wasnt supposed to start for another day... i took a test and whamo.. we're prego.

    turns out i had been waking my DH up in the middle of the night.. around 2 or 3am.. and getting our groove on.. with out protection..

    i had a disorder called sexsomnia.. pretty much the getting it on version of sleep walking... DH thought i was 100% coherent.. yeah not so much..

    so us getting prego was a little bit of a shocker to me.. but we're both happy now.. and we joke alot about how it happened.. :D

  • It was because I got pregnant and won't have an abortion and adoption wasn't an option. I take responsibility for my actions and am so happy that I did get pregnant, it has been awesome. My son will be 13 in July and I wouldn't trade him in for anything.

  • My hubby & I were married 5 years before we decided to have a baby. We wanted a lot of time by ourselves first. We always planned on having at least 2 kids. I was also a big wimp about seeing blood because I've been known to faint at the sight of it. I watched birth shows on Discovery Health for years before deciding I could handle it. Everything went great. I have two children now who were both 100% planned.

  • I decided to have a baby when I saw the four positive pregnancy tests sitting in front of me :oD

    Abortion is not for me and adoption is not an option.
