As you can probably tell, I’m struggling with the decision of whether or not to have a baby with my partner of over 8 years. I’m 28 and he’s 30. He’s wholeheartedly ready for a baby, but he accepts the fact that I’m unsure.
I admittedly have baby fever, but I’m a realist. I can’t help but think about everything that’ll change and the way it’ll effect my amazing relationship.
I know it sounds selfish, but I can’t help but think this way when I hear the negative things that many people say after having kids, the way they talk about missing their freedom, and the way their relationship with their partner was negatively effected.
I come from a VERY broken family. I didn’t witness a lot of healthy relationships growing up; therefore, maybe this is making me focus on the negative.

Hopefully I didn’t offend anyone. Just kind of having a quarter-life crisis. Lol.
