I know I mention a lot on here that I don't ever want kids. But theres this little part of my brain (very little) that knows eventually I will probably have the little devils. The whole process really scares the shit out of me. It amazes me as well, but not as much as the being scared. Plus the whole part of actually having the baby doesn't sit to well. And then once you have the baby it. never. goes. away. Commitment phobe in me coming out again.

I'm young though. I have plenty of time to have kids. No rushing. No. No. No. I'd like to enjoy this tattoo on my side for a little bit before I get knocked up and have stretch marks everywhere. And you bet your ass I'll be using something to prevent stretch marks. Actually I should probably start using that stuff now so in 10 years when I actually do have kids I'll be nice and lubed up. Or maybe kids won't ever happen and I'll be fine with that too.


  1. I have tattoos all around my belly button. Everyone told me that they'd be stretched out and unrecognizable after pregnancy. They survived two without a warp or a stretch mark.

    Caring for your own children is different than caring for other people's. I don't like children at all. I can't stand babies and never wanted one. Other people's children annoy me and consistantly drive me a little bit crazy (with a few exceptions.)

    MY children, on the other hand, are perfect. I wonder if they drive other people crazy... but I don't actually care. They're both perfect.

  2. I have a tattoo around my pelvic/belly area and when I got PG I thought it was going to be unrecognizable but it still looks great. I was lucky to have no stretch marks too and I gained 65 pounds. The cocoa butter lotion does work. I was always lubing up. LOL

    I remember going in for my 6 week after delivery check up and the Dr. said - well, I see your tattoo went back to normal shape. I was also down to my normal weight minus a few.

    But when it's your own child there is nothing greater. There are days where my precious little man is satan's child but it's more less than more often.

    You learn an unconditional love so great that nothing they do can spoil that.

    You're young you have plenty of time for babies. I never thought I wanted a child but now that I have one I have no idea what I would do without him.

  3. Both times I was pregnant I worried that I would have some sort of huge personality conflict with the kid. Fortunately, that didn't happen and we all like each other pretty well, most days. It's definitely different when the kids are your own.

    If you get stretch marks, maybe you can incorporate them into a new tattoo. You're a trendsetter, Heather!
