In my twenties. I knew early into my twenties that I wanted to be done having children by the time I was 30.

I was 38 when Katie was born, so I got a late start.

24. My last pregnancy was really rough, and I have severe depression when pregnant so I decided that was the last time.

This past summer after my miscarriage I didn't have the heart to keep trying. We had been on the fence with trouble TTC the year prior and it seemed like fate had other plans for us.

I want to be in my mid twenties when I am done. I am 23 with my first right now and we really only want 2, not too far apart, so I'd say I will probably be 26 when I'm done!

37. Some days I think I want more, but medically, it could be dangerous for me and the potential baby. Too stressful and I'm not getting any younger.
