I don't think it's particularly "naive" or "stupid" to say things like "I don't want my baby in my bed" or "I don't want to be a SAHM and don't envision myself ever doing so." Because you know what? I don't, right now. It's an expression of a state of mind, an opinion, right now. These things can change, I understand.
|Edit: The "just you wait" stuff PPs remarked about infuriate me as well. I find it as unhelpful from the "crunchy" ("you may THINK you don't want to sleep with your child but JUST YOU WAIT!") as I do the "mainstream" ("oh, you may THINK you're down with natural childbirth, but JUST YOU WAIT!")|
|How about letting me figure out what works best for me and my family for myself? (I have to give my husband a LOT of credit here...he's experienced in this--well, the having an infant part, the pregnancy part is only vicarious--but has not really not given me any "oh, you won't wanna do that because when my ex was pregnant with my daughter, she did X...")|
