Was this your last child?

Ok... I swore this child (#3) was going to be our last. Towards the end of this pregnancy I had HAD it and was sooo done.

...but now that he's here, and honestly the transition from 2-3 kids has been so darn easy so far, I am already starting to think "hmmm... maybe one more..."

But DH is DONE. He is supposedly getting the big V soon. I know deep down we should stop--DH and I are both resuming school in January, finances could be better... and we have both said we're ready for the next phase of our lives. But a part of me is sad we will never have anymore children, I will never be pregnant again. It feels liberating and yet very sad to be closing up shop. Anyone else? Do you feel done?

We believe in god deciding how many kids we have so we don't use birth control. I have a gut feeling there will be a # 4 in store for us

I would love to have another child IF ONLY we had the money..but we don't. If we came into money and i could stay home for a few yrs and could afford a bigger home, i would do it again. Otherwise, this is it for us.

I think we are done. I cannot do this again. i am getting older and the risks increase as we get older. I have had 3 c-sections and that is enough for me!

We are done. I had a tubal with the CS and, honestly, with the issues that the little man is having (even though they are being fixed miraculously quickly) I just don't think I could do this again. Even though originally I had wanted 4 or 5, I am content with three now.

This is probably our last child. Part of me wants at least one more child, but the other part says that this is definitely it. Dh is going to get a vasectomy, but that will probably be some years from now when we know without a doubt that this is it.

I started going through my maternity clothes to give away, and it made me sad giving it away. It felt like the end of this chapter in my life. Sniff sniff. I know that I would feel the same way if I had 8 kids and decided to stop there...
