    I was raised in fundamentalist religion where being a stay-at-home mom was THE divine purpose of women. Frankly, I've never been super excited about having kids and it probably didn't help matters that I felt like it was being pushed on me. But I'm 22, so I got plenty of time to decide.

    The older I get, the less I want kids. Also, having not seen/spoken to anyone in my family for so long has made me realise just how obsessed with kids they are. My SIL was constantly going on at us "Go on, you know you want to" "You love kids really" "I can't have any more so you need to have one". (Yes, that last one is an actual quote!) Having told Michael I'd love a baby one day, I've now had to say that I've gone off the idea (for a few years, at least). He seems fine with that, so that's alright with me!

    a young teenager, i swore i never wanted kids. i adored my nieces and nephews but the thought of my own did not appeal to me. i dended up pregnant and after my 18th bday i had my son. he was the best thing to ever happen to me. then four years later i had my daughter and swore i didnt want anymore. we decided one more and two weeks before our then youngests birthday, we had our son (whos now almost 3 months old). its different with your own kids. im awkward around other peoples kids but couldn't imagine my life without them.

    Same, people have this misconception that if you're a parent then you'll automatically like all children, it's sooooo not true...

    I love kids, but right now my husband and I are not interested in going that route. We are both going to school at the moment, so it'll be a couple of years before that happens. We are 30 and 31 right now, so unless we choose to adopt there are only a few years left where knocking me up is an option. We're open either way at the moment, to be honest.

    I'm nearly 34 and I'm worrying about getting older too. I know that people have kids into their late 30's and 40's but the risks involved especially after 40 are so much greater. My main issue however is money and bringing a child up with a government in charge that doesn't care about you unless you're rich or old or both. That is my main issue for hanging fire right now.

    Thing is I'm on the injection, it could take until I'm 35 to become fully fertile again, could be 36 by the time I fall preggers, by which time I'll be giving birth at 37....I don't think that there's anything wrong with having kids later on in life but for me the increasing risk factor does worry me. I already have a child with a disability, I'm not sure I want to increase the chance of that being 2.

    Again I have no issue with people having kids later in life but for me personally it does worry me. Also I've been a parent and step parent to young children since I was 19 so having a rest from it might be nice...

    I always thought I would have kids. when I was 18 I met someone who was a bit older than me who wasn't interested in having children.
    at 18 I wasnt even thinking about it yet. time went on and I was with him for 9 years. by the end of the relationship I had just got used to not thinking about children.
    I've just never felt that need or urge to parent. if my husband and I had an accident, I know we would keep it and love it immensely, but planning is something else entirely. I also feel quite strongly that for me, a child should be wanted and not had for the sake of it.

    so I'm 33 now and am aware time is ticking by but I kind of like my life the way it is, so we'll see what happens..
