Will this baby be your last?

I have been on the fence about whether or not baby #3 would be our last. I have always wanted 4 kids but DH has always said he wanted just 3. So I wasn't get my hopes up for 4. Over the weekend we got to talking about a budget and saving for the future. That is when hubby shocked me. He said something along the lines of neither one of us have said this baby is absolutely our last right? I kinda stumbled over my tongue and said no I have never said that. Then he went on about saving for more kids. I was in shock! I am really happy he has changed his mind on 3 kids! So now I know if this baby is another boy I will get at least one more shot at a girl. HA HA HA My RE tried to stress that this needed to be our last baby because of my weight. My OB is a totally different story. He knows I am perfectly capable of a healthy pregnancy despite my weight. Anyway I am excited that this won't be our last rodeo!

Ashley that is my dilemma. I keep telling myself 3 is enough kids but when I think about tying my tubes at 27, I cant help but cringe. :/ I see an IUD in my future... LOL

After seeing a PP talk about tying of tubes, even if I think I'm done, I still won't do it. I'm only 28, I cannot make a life changing decision like that, knowing I still have about 10+ years left of being able to have a baby.

This will be our last.  Two is a great number!  We have a little girl now who would love a sister, so if we have a girl, then that's great for her.  A sister relationship is a special one, I think.  But if it's a boy, then we'll have one of each.  So I feel like we can't lose.  Personally, I'm kind of nervous about the prospect of having a boy!  My girl is kind of wild, and most little boys I know are even crazier :smileywink:

 

Holy moly, 18 kids???  People are amazing!
