    I had my chance of having more kids taken away from me, so perhaps that's why I am a little shocked by the amount of women these days who chose not to have children rather go to another country and adopt or focus 100% on a career. But then also I am a housewife mostly and love being a mum!

    That wasn't meant to put down your own personal views, I really cant think of another way to put it, its just one I don't understand.
    I understand that we have different views on it I'm exactly the same as you - I just can't comprehend why some people want kids so badly. I just can't feel what they feel. I mean I don't think that you have to have kids to be a family, and I don't feel the urge to pass on my genes. And I don't really feel like I have to have a child to feel 'complete' in any way - I'm already complete I know there are many reasons people want kids, I just can't comprehend those emotions.

    I was diagnosed with fertility issues when I was just a baby myself. It was discovered between ages of 10-12. I got so used to the idea of never being a mummy. (Due to other medical conditions I'm not a prime choice for adoption) so I began to make 'new' dreams. I grew up in a different country where gender roles were firmly structured. So the idea I may not have babies destroyed me. My dream was to get married young and be a housewife, rub my husbands feet, cook him dinner, be a wonderful wive. But when I came to Australia, I realized there was so much I could do. I could help children, I could save lives, I could create. So my dreams changed. I dreamed of being a doctor, a professor, an activist. Then I fell hopelessly in love with my fiance. (On again, off again due to both our families disagreeing.) He wants me to be-in his words-beautiful wife who tends for him and all the daughters we will have. So now I confused.

    I fell pregnant with my daugther at 17. I was shocked & scared at first but my maternal instincts kicked in as soon as she was born. Sure I missed out on the 'going out clubbing' stage but I wouldn't change a thing

    Megan - you didn't miss out on anything lol.

    I know I shouldn't be but I am kind of pissed. I said at dog training that i would start a yahoogroup for agility and invite everyone. So less than a week later a group appears - run by one of the people I told. Stupid bitch.

    BTW girls talking about never getting pregnant - OMG - shut up - you're kids - you dont need to think about that at the moment. When you're 30 you may feel differently. Certainly at 20 I hated little kids and now at 30 I am think I would like kids one day perhaps. Dont write yourselves and your relationships off now. Disney - you're freaking 17 - just don't OK - I have seen way too many pregnant teens where it doesn't work out as well as it did for Megan.

    Yeah, see that would tick me off a bit too. The thing is, she's probably oblivious to the fact that it would annoy you and just thinks that she did you a favour.

    ETA either that or she is just a bitch who wanted to take the credit for it lol.

    And I agree with this. Enjoy your time only having to worry about yourself and doing whatever you want to do.
    My life revolves around putting people above myself (kids & husband). I often forget to make time for me and do the things that I want to do.

    Ah dog clubs, politics & grand standing. They're the same everywhere Mate. The only good thing about dog clubs is .... the dogs.

    "Ditto" ..... I'm not a hypocrite any more when it comes to just "smiling sweetly" & being the "bigger person" when some control freak is tearing strips off me as part of their own personal power trip while I'm in class. I also REFUSE to teach "right hand turn buckle, left hand rump" for the sit position.
