    Never, Ever.

    I don't care if I live to be 200yrs old, I'm not going to get pregnant or have kids. Period. I don't care how "fine" or how "rich" a man is, I will not allow that to happen to me. I don't want kids and don't have a human maternal instinct. I'd rather be dead or in a wheelchair...

    For years after my first child was born,

    all I hoped for was to be pregnant again. It never happened and I eventually accepted when he was a young teenager that there would be no more and to be satisfied that I had one healthy child. And then, when the first was 17 and I had really begun to enjoy some freedom...
