I have always known that I wanted to have kids but I waited until I was with my husband to conceive. I had thought about doing IVF when I was still single but decided that it was not the right choice for me. So I waited. I am glad that I did it the way I did. I can't imagine having any other kids than the ones I do.


My husband and I have been together for 16 years and married for almost 3...we started trying right after we got married...On our first try, I miscarried...we try off and on for two years before I finally got pregnant.


I never really planned to conceive children I was just careless so here came my babies. I pregnant at 15 and delivered at 16 so in no was was Leilani planned. The same with Lianna, I was pregnant at 17 and delivered at 17 as well. I was sexually active so I knew my consequences & still chose to make the same actions.


I decided I wanted kids, well, when I was a kid. That just kind of stuck with me and I wanted it more and more as I got older.

I decided to actually start actively trying to conceive children with my husband once we were married, but we did not necessarily prevent before that.

I'm not sure when we first started dating if my husband knew he wanted kids, but he was pretty young. He's pretty set on the idea these days too.


With haiden we were just dating so we were not trying. I was young and dumb teenage so i decided i would play around with my pills. I would go 1 week and take them, another week i would miss them.

1 month later i found out i was pregnant. The dr told me i am very fertile and it wont take me long to get pregnant if we wanted another.


With my first child me and her dad had been together almost a year and decided we wanted to try. I got pregnant about 4 months after we started trying. I ended up miscarriaging at 14 weeks.

With my second me and my husband had been trying for 2 years to get pregnant. We did everything we would read about.


I was 28 yrs old when I got married and we wanted children right away. Nearly a month after the wedding I conceived my 1st child. Eight months after I got pregnant w/ 2nd child and after1&1/2 yrs gap my last child.
