What made everyone decide that they were done having children? Just Curious.

I'm having a really hard time getting up in the middle of the night, and my nerves are shot. And also $$$

The fact that we had twins the second time around was enough for us, lol!!

Well, we decided we were done after two, because Ciara was such a hard baby to deal with. She cried almost constantly for the first four months and is still an extremely fretful child. But, after we got surprised by the other two, we figured that 4 was enough. I can admit that my mental sanity could probably not handle another one and I would rather be able to financially support the ones we already have well, than to have more and be under financial strain.

A few reasons combined, I felt exhausted the entire time I was pregnant with my last one (with the others I felt just fine) so I am not wanting to do that again with already 4 children to take care of. Second really big reason, our last baby was premature and we are never wanting to go through that again, for ourselves and our other kids. You never know for sure if you will have another preemie, I may not, but after being blessed with 4 healthy children, we're not willing to take the chance.

Regardless of the sex of our kids, we were only set on having two. I'm happy with that decision. We ended up with one of each.
