If the stork existed I'd be willing to have the 6 children I want.

My 4 sons are the most precious things in my life but I'd go for the stork delivery every time because I felt like I was totally paranoid the entire pregnancy worrying about what could go wrong.

I quite enjoyed pregnancy - so I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Well, it's way too late for me. But, I had a hard time enjoying pregnancy. Not all of it was bad, but enought that I'd probably skip it if there was a chance to get a baby another way. But, honestly, you wouldnt' value your child quite the same.

I wonder if that's why it's easier for men to make war and kill each other; they don't invest so much of themselves into making human beings that are then killed in an instant.

I don't know about that - by that logic, parents who adopt or use surrogates, etc don't value their children the same as those who bear biological children of their own.

You've got a point there. But, if you could order up a baby for delivery like from Amazon.com, would you value it the same?

Good question Tiny.

While I'm unable to do it again, I absolutely loved being pregnant when I was!
I'm one of those who always thought I would adopt someday (and still hope to) because I never had felt very strong about having to have a baby of my own, or from my own eggs, or whatever. I was not one of the types to be on the "baby train" ever.

What I felt and experienced while being pregnant was the most shocking, yet wonderful and revealing revelation. I will also admit that having a baby of my own changed me profoundly.
I honestly don't know if I personally would have changed as much as I did
Had I not gone through the pregnancy and birth/c-section.
That's not to say I would love an "ordered" child any less or not be as good of a parent, or even values it less... I just don't know if I myself would have been as affected. The change in me has made me a better parent.
However, it is possible I think that because I only have one. Dunno.

Good point
Though sadly there are plenty of women out there that have babies the normal way and don't appear to value them at all so I suppose it depends on how badly you want that child really
