Before “settling down” to have kids, you may have pictured a certain life for yourself: your ideal partner, the ideal place to live, and the number of children you thought you wanted. Maybe that goal has stayed the same over the years — or maybe it looks a lot different now. Whether you wanted a huge family but felt overwhelmed after one kid, decided to have several kids when you never thought you’d have any — or something in between — there’s no wrong way to feel or think about it. But since it often brings up complicated emotions, people have a lot to say in the Scary Mommy confessional. Here, 32 parents anonymously share their thoughts on pregnancy, family size, secondary infertility, and more.

Scary Mommy Confessions are a tried-and-true part of what makes our site so fun. If you want to anonymously confess, please tell all through the link here. And if you want to browse past Confessions, head here.
