Good reason for wanting a baby???? *EDIT*

What would YOU consider a "good" reason for wanting a baby?

I've seen in a few posts whenever someone says they're pregnant or want another baby, that they're selfish or their reason for wanting one is not a good reason.

So what exactly is a good reason for wanting a baby? What reason would you need in order to go ahead and start TTC?


EDIT...    What if it's your SO/DH/DF that's asking you for a GOOD reason???

Just because, should be reason enough. My body & my baby not yours or theirs. Unless you want a baby just to keep a man trapped or for a welfare check or something like that.

Thanks for replying. I agree with you on everything you said. 

I'm usually at a loss when someone asks me what my reasons would be.

I'm pregnant because we wanted another and are good enough on money to be able to support one and not struggle.  I don't see why we need another reason. =)

Because I wanted one... idk.
Eta: if dh wanted a "good reason", I'd tell him,"because I'm already pregnant, duh!"

Not the best reason in the world but I know a few women that have done that.  It really didn't work out for them.
