    not NT, but fwiw, the potential complications of pregnancy seem really unpleasant to me. and adopting makes so much sense - help overpopulation, save a kid who's going to have a fairly unpleasant future otherwise, skip nine months of morning sickness, etc...

    but in some ways i'd like to watch my DNA live on... lol

    Fuck, that really made me nauseous. If I didn't want one before this thread, I certainly wouldn't now. :/

    I sometimes...sometimes wonder what it would be like to hold this little creature that you made yourself, to know it's fully trusting and dependent on you and feel the bond you form. And then I am confronted with the next screaming kid and remember my friends pregnancy and shiver at the thought of running around like an elephant for nine months, throwing up three months long, having your back cramp at you not to mention the football sized head you're supposed to push out *there* at the end of it.

    I dunno..I too wonder if adoption isn't an option. But then I freak out about the sheer responsibility and the fact that you *have* to keep it up. No escape. Not to mention that my INTJ is like: no kids is fine, but if you have *any*, they're mine!

    *sigh*

    although it's absolutely ick and scary i think i can come to terms with the physical pregnancy/birth bit - the notion of having to give up free time, energy, disposable income, spontaneity, career advancement and loud sex is scarier.

    there's also no guarantee you'll have an awesome child. i'd want a cool one.

    Yeah. That part is "P" hell -- at least before the fact. Once you have them, they're yours / connected to you... even when they're no longer with you. It's scary. Then again, marriage scared me that badly too. Big decisions that you can't [easily] escape nor can totally predict what will happen = anxiety.

    There's little doubt that my offspring would be awesome.

    I'd seriously consider being an egg donor. But beyond that, evolution can kiss my ass. (goodbye)

    ha!

    Yeah my current "plan" (and let's be honest for a P that means "thought I had yesterday") is to have one for the gene continuity thing and then go with adoption. It's really not like the world needs (lots) more humans.

    I like babies. I think I'd enjoy having the feeling of an alien being growing and moving inside; that part sounds like a fun adventure. What scares me is pushing it out (or getting it cut out) :eek: and then having ultimate responsibility for and being tethered to another person for at least 18 years. I HATE demands being made on my time and energy. Never say never, though.

    How alien would it have to be?
