It is unlikely that I will have more because I am older than I'd want to be for more kids. However, I am not going to have any operations to ensure that I don't have any either.

We are done. I'm going to be 34 and DH will be 41 this year, and we don't want to still be raising children when we are retired! Also, I would be very high-risk, and I would have to drive to a hospital 2 hrs away at least once per week to see the high risk OB, and I would require weekly treatments of IV immunoglobulin (sp?), and I'm not exactly keen on that. It makes me sad, though. The idea that I'm done.

We aren't done. I'd really like one more. I've always wanted two children, and I absolutely adore having Olivia in our family, but it just doesn't quite seem "complete" yet.

This will be my first and DH and I are very young. We will probably have a couple more.

We are done. One I'm 41, and we really can't afford 3 in daycare and waiting longer isn't an option. Two- The mental and physical toll TTCAL has taken on me I don't think I can go through it all again. We wanted two and we got (or soon will have) our two.

I am clearly having more! LOL. After this one I think we are done. Atleast for 5 years or so, and then we will reassess our situation, and decide if we want/can afford another. We honestly shouldn't be having this one at this point, it will be rough for a few months....

We have always said we wanted 3, this will be our 2nd, we will see how this goes and then decide By the time we even think about a 3rd, DD will be in elementary school (scary thought...lol), so daycare costs would just be for 2 most likely, unless we wait longer than I think we will. Time will tell for us...

I got my tubes tied so I am done... If I was just a few years younger I would have had 1 more. I still really want one more but like Sam, the mental anguish of loss coupled with the physical part it all was just rough.

I am so grateful for my Scarlett... she is so spoiled with love

Same here. I want 3 and DH knows that, by the time we go for the third DS will be in elementary school, so only 2 in daycare. We will have to see how financially well off we are when the time comes.

We're done. We were supposed to be done after lil Kev, but that went out the window. I can't do this again. Granted this pg has been easier than the one with my son, but still. I'm not getting any younger, this makes 4 kids for us, and my eldest is going to be 16 and off to college soon. It's time to stop making babies, raise the ones I have, and enjoy my DH.

We're done. I got the Essure procedure a couple months ago. I'm 36 years old. I hated the scary-ness of pregnancy, hated BEING pregnant, and am just tired. LOL I love my kids and I feel like my family is perfect and complete the way it is.

We are not done. We will probably actively try again in November/December of this year. We would like one, maybe two, more. If we are so blessed. I have always wanted a four and DH is on board with that. We are going to pay off some bills first and get the boys a little older. But honestly, I could do another pregnancy now. It was stressful, but miraculous. So I am totally up for it again, losses and all.

We're done. If I had a body that would cooperate, and we won the lottery we'd have a houseful. Pre-e got me at 38 weeks with DS, 36 weeks with DD, and 33w6d with the twins, and that's early enough for me to not want to risk an earlier delivery. It makes me sad to be done, but I find some relief in not having to get on the TTC roller coaster again. All 4 of my kids are rainbow babies, and that's enough for me. We are blessed.

I think this is my last pregnancy. But I'm not willing to do any surgery until at least 5 years from now. So who knows if I might change my mind or get a surprise during that time.

Since this is our first and I am still relatively young I am totally having more! Granted I can, I still worry about that.

Ideally we are going for a family size of 3-4, I want to try to have them sort of close together. Both me and DH had huge age differences with our own siblings and I don't want my kids to have to be 10+ years age difference between each other.

I think this is it for us! After 14 pregnancies, 10 kids, 4 in Heaven and lots and lots of stress we need to call it quits! I have to slap myself on the back for getting this far....right? I am 41 and now it's time to raise the kiddos I have and look forward to grandkids. It might be closer than I think.....my oldest will be 20 this year!!!!
