do you think this is selfish?

My SIL and brother have a son, and have always wanted two kids.

She had a pretty average pregnancy: no serious complications, average weight gain, but she hated every minute of it. My brother has never wanted to adopt, but she said the only way she is having another child is if they adopt. She said, quote, "I'm not ruining my body again, I hated it". 

I've had 4 kids. Part of me feels like she is being extremely vain and selfish.

What do you think?

No... it's her body, her choice.

Just because YOU chose to take offense to the comment does mean it has anything to do with YOU.

her body her choice. I don't think its selfish to not to want to bare another child, especially since there are other options, such as adoption.


pregnancy isn't for everybody!!

I think she is pretty smart... but she should have thought about that a little sooner!

Well...she has a right to not want to be pregnant. Plus, she will be helping a baby get loving parents.
