I never questioned my feelings about not wanting kids because my friends back in the U.K (where I am originally from) are single partiers with no interest in children, except only one who has had a baby. But after I moved, most of my new friends were planning for them. I spent more and more time around young children, and when our two closest friends decided that they were going to have their first child, DH and I realized that this was not something we were remotely interested in doing. When friends of mine in the wanting/planning/having stage, see a baby or get on to that subject, I find there is an expectation that I will want to join them. I have never experienced pressure like this before.
