    Maybe I'll Change My Mind..

    But right now, I am utterly terrified and disgusted by the thought of being pregnant and going through the whole ordeal. When I was little, I always wanted kids. Until a couple of years ago I thought that being pregnant would be amazing, I loved kids. Still do love them. Even to...

    Bad Idea # 1

    I have a romantic interest, and we are getting closer as the days go by. However, I have no desire to bear his child. I have no patience or tolerance for children. I don't have any ill-will or grudges, and am not a spiteful person or mean, I just can't stand kids, and as such...

    I'm Seriously Scared of Getting Pregnant

    The idea of me being pregnant seriously terrifies me.  I mean I dread it and fear it so much.  It's incredible.  Even if I'm alone and getting business done, somehow my mind will warp and make me very paranoid about possibly getting pregnant.  I can't even...

    Just Not Maternal

    Hell No

    I'm 16. There was this time when my period was four days late. I have NEVER been that scared in my life. Back then I was even still convinced I was going to stay with him forever. If we were not even strong enough to stabilize a relationship, I guess I should be thanking God on...

    Not Now

    I'm 21; I don't think any 21 year old needs to be making a family in this economy. It's not that I wouldn't love to experience what all of my friends have. It's not that I don't want a family. It's not that I'm afraid of being pregnant. No, it's just not the right choice. It wasn...

    Okay, guys can't get pregnant. But I hear couples say all the time, "We're pregnant," and guys asking, "Are we pregnant?" There's emphasis on the "we," like a man is part of the process. I'm glad there are still people out there who...

    No Children Please

    Growing up, I thought that every woman wanted to grow up, get married and have kids. When I reached this, I knew that this did not apply to me. Even now, after I've graduated from college and I'm with the man of my dreams, I still do not want children. It could be because of my...

    I Don't Want To

    In my country, married people like to have kids and more kids. One reason married people have many kids is the husband wants his pregnant wife to have a baby boy a male baby, and the poor wife still gets pregnant and have baby girl after baby girl until she finally have a baby...
