I think one thing that doesn’t get talked about often enough is how hard motherhood is. It’s difficult to be needed that much, especially if you have Moon issues, as I do.  It’s a life-changing thing (Pluto crossed my MC when I had my first baby) that I think takes many women by surprise.  

I didn't ever feel a baby clock.  I just knew it was biologically better to have them before 40 or so, and luckily my life circumstances worked out so that I could do that and stay home with them too.  I love my children dearly, but I still find motherhood to be exceedingly difficult.  Definitely the hardest thing I’ve done.

I agree!  This is so important. It makes me realize how distracted we are that we don't find time to talk about something like this that really matters.

I always wanted kids, but I figured I'd wait a few years after I married. Well...my baby clock blew up when I met my future nieces and nephews. I was 25.

Nobody was more shocked than me, but then again, I have three planets in the 5th. ? I had three kids in four years, the oldest arriving when I was 29.

Parenting is a Saturn thing. Saturn crossed my Rising when I found out I was pregnant with my oldest. Saturn was square my Sun when he was born, and my Saturn return happened when he was an infant.

It wasn't hard for me to transition to being responsible for someone else (not easy for a fun loving 5th house Leo Sun), because this was what I wanted.
