How did you know you were done having kids?

I struggle and struggle with this. We are planning on 4 kids, but I know I'm not going to feel done even after that. Every time my youngest baby turns about 6 months old I want to start trying for the next one. I'm afraid I'm going to be so sad (yet happy too, for the birth) when my 4th baby is born, just knowing that the pregnancy/birth part of my life is over.

Do you still have feelings of sadness about being done?

I sometimes feel I am done. But I don't think I want to do anything permanent until my youngest is at least 5-years-old. I don't think I would ever be able to saying during a pregnancy that it was absolutely 100% my last one.

When I was pregnant with Aaden, I was 100% sure we were only going to have one.

Right after Aaden was born, and up until he was 6ish months old, I decided that I wanted another one.

After dealing with crappy sleeping, and an attitude from Hell, I've decided that we're done. I don't have the patience to deal with all that again.
