I guess my only real advice is to really think hard about it. It seems like a lot of people have kids because that’s just what people *do*. Whatever choice you make, do it intentionally. Think about your threshold for chaos, what you want your life to look like in 30-40 years, and (unfortunately this needs to be said) your economic ability to support a child, or multiple children. Don’t have kids just to have them. Don’t not have them just because you’re afraid it’s too hard.

Yes. This exactly.

When I think about it, having the kind of body that easily puts on weight is perhaps a blessing in disguise. In other words, if I don’t want to gain weight I have to work out hard every day, watch what I eat, and cut down on indulgences. People who naturally keep the weight off don’t need to exercise or watch their diet. Which is why, in many cases, their physical strength deteriorates as they age. Those of us who have a tendency to gain weight should consider ourselves lucky that the red light is so clearly visible. Of course, it’s not always easy to see things this way.

This is such a great way to look at it! I’m going to have to try and keep that in mind.
