How many more children do you want and when do you want to start trying again?
If you've decided not to have anymore children, is it this pregnancy that made you decide?
I personally would like two more children and would like to have them close in age. I may try again sooner rather than later...

I have no idea. Pretty sure we'll have more. Not sure how many. Taking it one baby at a time. I generally don't get fertility back for about a year. So, I'll deal with it then, lol.

I don't know how it is going to work out for me. I really never thought I would have a c-section. If I want to try for a VBAC them I'll have to wait it out, otherwise, maybe 9 months...

Have you had your postpartum appt yet? I'd ask your care provider what they recommend. Every care provider has different qualifications for VBAC. So, if you plan on using your doc again, I'd follow their recommendations. Check out your local ICAN as well (just google ICAN and your region). ICAN is International, and I am pretty sure there is a group in your area.

I'm still saying two more, though DH says he wants to stop. I told him we can discuss it after the next one
I think I'm good with two years apart so i'm thinking ttc in early 2014

I haven't had my 6 week check yet. I'll only see my OB at 7 weeks. He is on vacation. I'll make sure to look up ICAN.

I've never seen myself with more than two kids, so no, we won't be having any more. I have such horrible pregnancies, that I don't ever want to go through that again.

We want 3 more and I want them close together. But we're being relocated for DH's job so we likely won't start TTC until we move, sometime between January and march.

Eta: we're NTNP already. And last time I got my period back at 5 weeks PP. I'm totally ok with it happening sooner.

Not having any more children. Richard has his baby now and knows that I am only willing to do this once.

We're still back and forth, hubby swears that we're done at four, but I've vetoed anything permanent just in case I can convince him to change his mind

I think four is ideal for us, and I'm turning 37 this year. That being said, babies are a blessing!

Having 2 more. Not sure when we'll start trying, probably after I've gotten some regular periods. Maybe next summer we'll start (still trying to avoid having kids in Nov/Dec)

I originally wanted 3-4 children.

However after two progressively more difficult births, I am done. I am scared that another labour - or even another section due to the bleed I had - would finish me off, and I wouldn't risk leaving the two lovely children I am blessed to have.

We may look into adoption in a year or two but it would be older children given our ages, rather than babies.

2 was always our ideal - we never wanted to be outnumbered - heehee!

And now that we have our boy & girl we are SO done. Especially since I got my tubes tied. We can always do IVF if something extreme changes, but that would have to be EXTREME.

This is how DH and I feel too! We aren't even 100% sure there will be a second, but I think we're just saying that because we're both so enamored with our little miss right now. We do know we want them around 2 years apart, so we have time.
