Did you have to sacrifice anything to become a wife and/or mother?

I gave up an internship at a very popular magazine knowing we'd be moving to WA not long after we got married. It was totally worht it though. :)

I didn't give up anything major. When I became a mom, I lost friends because I couldnt hang out every weekend or couldnt just drop everything and coming running to whatever was going on. But for me, it was beyond worth it. I got to spend weekends with a beautiful lil girl and amazing man. Plus, I have a stronger bond with the friends that stuck around.

 I know, I know this sound petty but I had to sacrafice my two big rots when we got married because they hated DH-lol. Both where male and I had them from the time they where puppies.

I lost alot of friends but that just means they weren't friends to begin with. I also put college on hold but I do plan on finishing.

No, I sacrificed nothing. I ended a very long friendship, I don't think it was a sacrifice though. She wanted me to choose her or him, to me that was not a choice. I just learned someone I thought was a very good friend really wasn't.

I don't really remember. My sons about to turn 9 and I don't really remember giving up anything other then my education had to wait a little.

Having a child at 39, I was so ready I would have given anything up to be a mom. One thing I can think of, I would have left my ex if we didn't have a child. I ended up leaving 10 years later.

I don't thinkI sacraficed anything. I waited 27 years to find my hubby and 32 to have my DD, I was good and ready LOL! :-) I too lost a very good friend that I've been friends with since I was 2, she just didn't think I was in love with my husband but in reality I believe she was jealous. We are still friends just not close at all....and I don't regret one choice I've made about it.
