Q: anyone ever had a change of heart?

has anyone ever not wanted kids then boom all of a sudden your thoughts changed completely around?
i felt very strongly for years about not wanting kids and now over the past few weeks my husband and i have decided to do so. am i alone? i feel like people are going to think im such a hypocrite because i always said i wouldnt have kids (which now i see is insane) and my life is going in a beautiful direction. sorry if i sound selfish but i felt that way for so long i just want to know if im alone.

Yep, I did. I am 37 years old and I have know that hubby wasn't able to conceive and I WAS ok with that
for many years. About 6 months ago I changed my mind. That simple, I just changed my mind. So we went to the RE, I tested ok and so we have done 2 IUI's with DS. I am currently in the 2WW for #2.

Fingers, arms, legs and eyes crossed for a BFP in a few days,

I am the same, I was an older sibling so I know how much responsibility kids can be and I really thought I wanted to do whatever I wanted to do and be "selfish" as people would call it. I worked full time, finished school and then decided at 23 to blow all my savings traveling the globe, now 3 years later, I came back got married to my best friend and bought a house. Now something inside me keeps thinking how special it would be to share our wonderful life with children, whether we conceive or adopt. I think people who conceive before they have the financial stability, or emotionally maturity whether that's patience or a supportive relationship are being "selfish " by robbing their children of a more stable life.

It is pretty nromal I think. Alot of people that have already established themselves in life and did the whole "been there and done that" tend to want kids later in life. I always say I don't want anymore then I start thinking how a little girl would be nice and I'm not getting any younger then my clock starts ticking...
