You Don’t Feel Ready

Every time you see a couple cope up with many things while upbringing their kids, you have a very strong gut feeling that you cannot do all of those things.


You Love Your Expensive Clothes

You have recently bought your favourite designer clothes and love the fit. You cannot even imagine of not fitting into your favourite jeans once you're in your family way, as your physique goes for a toss.


You Run Away From Kids

You cannot stand the sight of seeing the little ones mess with their puke, saliva or poop. This gives you cramps. This is one of the biggest signs that you are not ready to become a parent yet.


You Hate Doing Laundry

You have been piling up your clothes and wash the ones that are your favourite all the time. When you would have a baby, the washing machine will never stop from spinning the little one's clothes. If this scene triggers a siren in your mind, then you are totally not ready for it yet.


Love Your Sleep

You cannot give up on your beauty sleep for sleepless nights while you take care of your baby. The more you hear your friends talking about their kids troubling in the night, the more you do not want them!


You Are Self-obsessed

All these years, you have been having everything for yourself. A kid would become a priority in everything, be it your financial decisions, buying clothes or hanging out with friends. All these things take a backseat and you are not ready for it yet.


Financially Challenged

Last but not the least, we have seen our parents struggle with our upbringing. Once we feel we are not in a state to get the best things in the world for our kid, our decision of having a kid automatically takes a back seat.
