Writer's Block: Kids or child-free?

Whether you've chosen to have children or live child-free, how and when did you (or will you) reach this decision? If you're in a relationship, did you (or will you) decide separately or together?


I've always wanted kids, and I still do. Please don't throw a shoe at me for saying this, but I would like to have 4-8 kids. *ducks* lol I'm sure that I will really love being a mom♥

When I went to get a sonogram and ultrasound to check my uterus for fibroids (I have very irregular periods and bleed heavily for long periods of time, not to mention that fibroids are common in my family), I didn't expect the doctors to not see any fibroids, but there weren't any. They did, however, see sixteen cysts on my right ovary. That means that I have a poly-cystic appearance, which doesn't necessarily mean that I have poly-cystic ovarian syndrome. I need to take a blood test to be sure, but I would have to go off the pill, which would be the treatment for PCOS anyway, so what's the point?

So, yeah...anyway, I mentioned all this because at some point I will get the blood test to see if I definitely have PCOS or not. With PCOS it can be very difficult to get pregnant or to carry a baby full term, which saddens me a bit. I don't want any kids now, but I will someday... I'm not worried about the increased risk of diabetes, heart problems, or the cancers - I'm worried about infertility and the increased risk of miscarriages. :-(

It's funny - I know several people with PCOS and about half of them have successfully conceived (not always intentionally, mind) and carried at least one baby to term. Th remainder are, for the most part, happy to remain child free.


I'd love to be a daddy, but my finances aren't great, my mental health is shot to hell right now and I need to find someone crazy enough to be a mother to my children. ;p

I need someone crazy enough to deal with me, too. lol
