If so, is it what you expected?
yes, for the most part it's what I expected. Didn't expect dh to be jealous of the kids or a few issues that one of my teens put us through.
My first pregnancy was an accident (my son wasn't an accident but thinking that I couldn't get pregnant was). I was young and naive, I had the "can't happen to me mentality". I had him at 18, loved/love him, but didn't want anymore kids ever again. I begged the Drs numerous time to tie my tubes and they wouldn't of course.
I was 25 when I met my husband. I knew right off of the bat that I wanted children with him.
We have 5 now, lol.
I think I appricate being able and wanting to have kids later in life. When I was young it was so much harder because I wasn't established yet. Having children that were planned was exactly as I expected. I have my perfect life now and wouldn't change it for the world.
I've literally ALWAYS wanted to be a mom. I can't remember a time of not knowing I'd have kids of my own. I always wanted a big-ish family - 4-5 kids - but have stopped at 2. I'm very happy in that regards.
