Given my age at 41 we may not be able to have another. Otherwise NO WAY dh and I both ant one more at least so Emma will have a sibling in her age group. Our youngest child besides Emma is EIGHT. Thats a HUGE difference.
My husband is a great dad and would be awsome if we able to have another. He wants one very badly.. LOL

I would also like Elijah to have a sibling close to his age. The closest one right now is seven! I keep going back and forth on whether or not we should have one more, but I worry so much when they are babies... it's hard not to! Ideally, I would like five (total, not five more).
We would love another, but there are some obstacles. Our other babies were all IVF babies, and we just aren't sure we should dedicate time, money, and emotional resources to that when we already have 3 healthy children. My last pregnancy was really hard...8 weeks on modified bedrest, 8 weeks on complete bedrest, and 4 weeks in the NICU, and my doc cannot guarantee that my cervix will hold up for another pregnancy. We live 22 hours from family, and DH's job takes him away for months at a time, so my plate is very full. Logically we would be crazy to have another, but we haven't ruled anything out.

We weren't sure, but we finally made the choice to go forward and have one more. We felt that our family isn't quite complete yet. Originally we were going to wait until Allison was of school age, but decided that large an age gap isn't quite what we want again.
I'd love another but not right now. Eli and Sam are 4yrs apart and I'd like to maybe have a closer age gap of 2.5-3yrs. But not right now, no. Eli is very challenging and still needs my full attention... we will revisit this question when he's 18months old.
