I initially decided I was done after my 4th, she was a preemie and I thought I was better off being done than ever risking going through that again. But then I changed my mind, but in the two weeks it took to get pregant I already knew I would be done.
Then I found being pregnant with 4 other kids around really hard, had a torturous birth and a super demanding baby, so any one of those three would have made me be done too.

No, about a year after my daughter was born we started trying for a third. After a year of trying we called it quits and decided we were happy with out little family of four. Now that they are getting older and more independent we can do many more things together as a family that we all enjoy. It is everything I ever imagined when growing up.

Thank you*kiliki* and Claire1979 for the gorgeous siggies!

Yep! I am pregnant now, with my 3rd and FINAL child. I decided I was done once we found out. I do not want to go through pregnancy again after this one. With my 1st daughter I had preeclampsia, due to that my daughter was born 5 weeks premature, thank goodness with NO complications. With my 2nd daughter I had horrible cramping and my lower back hurt like crazy. Labor and delivery was absolutely horribel with her. 3 huge contractions in a row with only a 30 second break in between each. It was crazy. Now being pregnant with my 3rd child (gender unknown until FRIDAY!), I am experiancing bad headaches and being very uncomfortable at 19 weeks. I'm definitely DONE after this one. I'm getting snipped and burned!

I wasn't sure I wanted another baby after two and then I got pregnant unexpectedly with my third. That pregnancy was horrible and I knew I couldn't do it again. She also turned out to be my hardest labor and delivery

yes. The dr asked me when I was signing my papers if I was sure... because what if something happened to the baby while i was pregnant or even after wards. I told her I would still be done you can't replace a child with another one

Nope. We have always planned to have 4. I hoped when I had this last baby, I would just feel done, but so far, I don't. I am hoping as he gets older, I will. DH is sure he is done, so barring any surprises before he gets snipped, we are done.

I decided after I suffered 2 miscarriages (one was my baby, one was a surrogacy) and got pregnant this time. I don't want to go through another loss, and after this baby is born and handed to his (or her) parents, I am done forever.

Surrogacy # 3 for new family?: 2014??

yes when i was pregnant with my son i decided i would only ever want one more.

sure enough when i found out i was pregnant again i knew that was it. at my very first doc appt. with my daughter i signed the tubal paperwork. its been 4 years and i still dont regret it at all. i have recently had a hysterectomy and i dont regret a second. especially with my sons special needs and my daughters attitude issues
I talk so much they gave me an award!!!
(daisy0408 thank you for making)

Thank you Niamh for my awesome blinkies!! And Vicki... for my fantastic siggy

Yes. When we started trying we knew it was for just "1 more" and that was it.
