It's going to take more than a 'Yeah, Sure' to convince me she definitely 100% wanted kids. Even if back then she was open to the idea of having children, well people and priorities do change. I find it believable that she might have changed her mind. In Penny's reaction to Leonard's first proposal she was sarcastic about looking for a house near good schools. She also said in the murder mystery game that she didn't intend to put that body through three kids. I must admit I didn't take those lines seriously then. Perhaps, on reflection, it was a case of 'Many a true word is spoken in jest.' What did seem strange to me at the time was the brief exchange in 4A after celebrating Bernadette's pregnancy. I found it unbelievable that the subject had never been raised before, considering all the years they'd been courting and that they were engaged for a year. ( I did wonder where it was going and whether the writers were planting a seed for a future storyline. ) When Penny said she was waiting long enough to prove she wasn't pregnant before arranging her wedding was the time to mention she had misgivings. Possibly she thought she'd want children later, but now finds she's more in doubt than ever. What beats me is that her family is no more dysfunctional than anybody else's so there seems no reason for not wanting to start one of her own.
