Hahahahaha lmao. She ain't lying! Sorry to hear that, OP. But she spoke the truth. I'm not a father but I don't need to be to confirm her accuracy. Having a baby is extremely expensive and life taxing. You'll save money and years of your life by not having any. #yaybirthcontrol

I hope you have siblings you can blame for her feeling this way. If you're an only child -- yikes!

I have a 1 year old and although some of this is true, I wouldn't change it for the world. I wouldn't have a second one due to traumatic birth and hating pregnancy but they bring happiness, unconditional love and so much joy and funny times it's worth it. Maybe once he's 18 my tone will change but for now it's worth it. Ignore your mum and if you're in a stable relationship with a partner who will share responsibilities go for it 😊

it's the best and worst thing in life having kids. I have 2 boys and love them to death. wouldn't change them for the world but they do my my life hell..

I have 2 adult daughters that I love with all my heart but I gave them the exact same advice! Thankfully, they both had already decided they did not want children. No way would I/they want to raise children in today's world. I do dote on all my 4, 2 legged and slithering grand babies though!!

While what she said is hurtful, you have to make your own decisions based on what YOU want, not what she or anyone else thinks. Yes children come with financial obligations and sometimes heartache, but they also come with love and joy if that's what you want. Please decide BEFORE you get pregnant, though. Having a child you don't want is hard on both of you.
