How many babies do you ultimately hope to have? Depends how the next pregnancy goes...

I guess I should do my own roll call too lol :)

Name: Jasmine
Age: 39
Nurslings: DS#1 (6) , DS#2 (4), DD#1 (4 months!)
We are not really TTC anymore - DH feels very done. I feel very ambivalent - but mostly hopeful that he will change his mind soon......
I always wanted 4 children but DH was good with 2 - we agreed to 3 so we have thankfully reached that goal and i feel very lucky and blessed. I really love being pregnant and even labour/delivery and oh how I love my babies, so the idea of moving on is hard.
We have had a great summer - just hanging around home, jumping on our trampoline, mini family holiday - fun with friends.

Name: Adriana

Age (if you care to share): 32

Nurslings and other children: 1 DS who is coming up on 5 months

How long have you been TTC? Haven't quite started yet. I've been lurking on here for a little while to gear up. I don't want to mess up the breastfeeding relationship with DS but it took 3.5 yrs to have him so I kinda don't want to waste any time. AF hasn't arrived yet but a few weeks ago I had sone menstrual like cramping and noticed a dip in milk production.

How many babies do you ultimately hope to have? 1 more

What did you do this summer? Spent it with baby and we took a nice vacation to Delaware

DS9, DD4, DS almost 9 months
I'm a two time grad sticking around for support. I was planning a fourth but recently I've been leaning against it. I just got ppaf so who knows.
We stayed home a lot this summer. DH works a lot and it was too hot to drag the baby out. We spent a couple weeks in the camper in another state while DH worked so it really wasn't a vacation. I still hope to spend a couple weeks RVing this fall in the north east.

Emily, that's awesome! I really wanted to shave my head for my birthday last week! I thought it would be really cool and I've never done it before. I need to get off my rear, work out and figured it would feel like a fresh start. I'm getting sick of my dreadlocks, they're long and heavy. DH was wholly against the idea so I've put it off for now, but someday maybe!
