First of all, no, this isn’t one of those “OMG my Bridesmaid or Best Man is going to be preggo at my wedding” threads. I found out yesterday that my Bridesmaid or Best Man and her fiance (who are getting married in October of this year) are planning to start getting pregnant next year. I’m happy for her obviously and she’s totally one of those I want to have a gazillion kids people, so I knew it was coming, but at the same time it makes me feel bad for not wanting to have kids right away. I may not even be able to have kids, but if I can I certainly don’t want to hop on the baby train anytime soon. So the Bridesmaid or Best Man thing just sort of brought out all these crazy emotions I didn’t even really know were there yesterday and now I’ve got baby anxiety for no reason. So basically I’m annoyed because there’s no reason why I should be thinking about it but now I am.

Oh! Don’t let someone else’s life decisions affect yours! You have a plan for you. You’ve considered everything, and you’re making it work within the constraints of your life and desires. Some people want to get pregnant on the honeymoon, and some people don’t want kids…ever. Both are fine! Don’t feel guilty about not sharing her views!

I think it’s super common for us to want to wait a while to have kids. I was definitely in your boat. I planned to wait a year, or two, or three.. lol.. before we had kids. In my friend group I’m the only one who has kids. Luckily my older sister has a baby and so do all of her friends. Otherwise, I would have been totally alone!
Take your time… you have the rest of your life…

Don’t feel pressured to have kids because other people are ready! It’s such a personal choice. You shouldn’t feel guilty at all. I know it can be tough with friends sometimes though. Follow your own feelings rather than your friends’ choices.
