Not pregnant (just browsing lol) but wanted to say this terrifies me about having kids. I've read statistics that if the mom had been abused their daughter is more likely to be abused, and same with Ed's.
In my family there's a big legacy of the women on my mom's side struggling with mental illness. My grandma, my mom, & I have all attempted suicide. It scares me to pass that on.

i was just browsing as well (pregnancy scares lol) but yeah, i'm sorry you're terrified of that but know that children can have wonderful lives either way ! *hugs* stay safe lovely

Wanted a boy, knew it was a boy, had a boy. Now I'm 15 weeks with baby number 2 and I want another boy but unsure of gender so far. Won't be upset if it's a girl though!

I really wanted a boy. According to the home gender test I bought I’m having a girl tho. I’m a little sad about it but girl clothes & girl stuff is more fun. So I’m a bit excited now. I had to pick a girl name I liked so I wouldnt be too disappointed.

I never wanted kids growing up and didn't have a preference at all when I changed my mind in my early 20s. Then when we started trying I suddenly I felt like I really wanted a girl. Not necessarily as my first, but I just thought if I have two or three or however many kids I would really like at least one of them to be a girl. I ended up having twin girls as my first and when we decided we would have one more I was secretly hoping it to be a boy for some reason. I felt kind of bad about it because I didn't care at first but then there was this sudden strong urge to have a son too (which worked out btw and now we are through). I think it's ok to have a preference, you'll love whatever comes out anyway! Also, the gender assigned at birth is not necessarily how your child will grow up to live as anyway, so who knows who my kids want to be in ten or twenty years time.

It doesn't really matter because I feel like whatever I might in my mind infer about what it would be like to have a girl vs having a boy won't necessarily be true at all, I'd just be excited to see what kind of personality and interests they'd have whatever the gender. That said I have a kind of ideal scenario in my mind where I get to have twins, a girl & a boy so that they are not too similar and not in competition like I feel identical twins or fraternal of same gender may be more at risk of, I used to always just want to have a girl, or two girls close together, but lately I've thought that one of each and to only go through pregnancy once to achieve it would be cool. While I would be very happy with a single kid I think it is better for children to grow up having to share with a sibling. So yeah, girl/boy twins, if I could choose.

 

Getting pregnant scares me so much though, I feel like I won't even be able to because of my ed but I keep thinking about if I did get pregnant... I'm completely addicted to laxatives and it terrifies me to think it would cause a birth defect or something, or a miscarriage. I know I won't be able to cut out the lax unless I'm fasting and if I'm fasting that can't be good for pregnancy either, obviously. And then the fact the child/ren would grow up with a mother who has a full blown eating disorder. How do you even avoid passing that on. I don't even mean genetically but just the actual behaviours, I know pregnancy would not magically mean recovery, probably make things worse if anything.
