I am never, ever, ever having kids.

Oh dear, was chatting with a lady at work...
Lady: What are you doing?
Me: *blotting at a grease stain in the bathroom, because yeah, I wear my food* I had bacon for breakfast and made a mess.
Lady: Oh! Bacon! How naughty! I could go for some of that! Too bad I can't have it.
Me: (thinks: Oh boy, here it comes) So what did you have?
Lady: Oatmeal... my husband and I are both on a diet.
Me: (thinks: Probably instant, too. With sugar, and fake strawberry flavor. Yeah. Nice job.) Nah, you should have had BACON! It's full of... um... pork! Porky vitamin goodness!
Lady: But I couldn't, it has so much fat...
Me: ***puzzled expression***
This woman has literally watched me lose 50 pounds... and still isn't convinced that eating bacon is ok!
the other day at Costco, my mom asks me "would I like those little green things...eedamaymes?" I was like..what....? OH! "edamame!?? NO! NEVER NOT EVER IT'S POISON" xD
That said, almost every problem from pregnancy and childbirth is 100% preventable with a solid diet on top of solid nutrient stores. Traditional people ate were born to nutrient-replete parents (who had been on even more nutrient-dense diets prior to and during pregnancy), ate nutrient-dense diets their whole lives (living in harmony with circadian & seasonal light & temp cycles), ate special nutrient-dense diets prior to and during pregnancy & breastfeeding, and naturally spaced children about 3 years apart via breastfeeding.
No - ABSOLUTELY NO - burrowing placentas. Egad.
It was all false. And/or supremely unlikely, even in SAD circumstances, and less likely than winning the lottery in the best circumstances.
