There was never a question if I wanted to breastfeed my children, one quick read of the benefits and I was sold.  What I never imagined was how my breastfeeding journey would go with Monkey.  I was so sure that I would be overdue, as this was my first pregnancy, that we told people I was due at the beginning of September not the end of August when my actual due date fell.
