Day 28: What would you do if you got pregnant

Another topic I don't entirely appreciate, but will answer anyway.

1) I won't be getting pregnant. I have taken/will be taking precautions.

2) I won't be getting pregnant. Ever. I've decided it's not necessary. If at some point in the far, far distant future, I am unable to shake those motherly desires most women have at some point or another, I am going to adopt. Why would I bring a child into the world when there are already children who need to be taken care of and loved? Just don't tell my mother.

3) I won't be getting pregnant. But, for the sake of argument and that unshakable "what if" . . . If I were to get pregnant, I would be the best mother I am capable of being. Having an abortion or giving it up for adoption are not even considerations. I, no doubt, would have to rely on help from family and friends, but if I create a child, I will take care of it. Life is precious, even if you didn't plan on it.

I was told the movie's boring, but they are pretty cute.
 (oh, if I were to get pregnant, I would skip the prego pics. They always look odd)

  1. that pic is creepy.
    And yeah I am very pro-adoption... although the older get the more I think about having babies...

  2. I'm all for people making the choice to adopt, but I don't understand the rational behind not having children because there are many children that need to be adopted.
    It's our natural instinctive behaviour as humans (and all animals) to have our own children, and I don't think people should feel guilty for making the choice to have their own child, just because so many people out there made bad parenting decisions.

    I think adopting is very noble (a number of people in my family have done it and my boyfriend has two adopted sisters)... it's just not for me.

  3. Great comments!

    The not having kids thing is my personal decision, I did not mean that no one should ever have kids or feel guilty about doing so - I just was explaining why I wouldn't. Sorry to have sounded like that.

    Almost every prego pic I've seen is indeed creepy - but you have to tell the mother it's sweet.
