We want at least one more. I can't wait to be pregnant again but we will be waiting at least a year before ttc again.

2 is plenty for me. Aside from just not wanting any more, my desired age gap would put me just too old for my taste to have another. We have almost 4 years between the kids, which means I'd be getting knocked up again at something like 38. Pass.

My family is complete at 2 big people, 2 little people. We keep our vehicles, don't need a huge house, and the parents aren't outnumbered.

I would love to be pregnant again and go through labor again but I think we are going to stop at 2. I am also older than I would want to be if I were to have another child. Even though my midwives never made a big deal about me being AMA, I did worry about it some and I am really grateful that everything worked out well. I would secretly love to have another child but I am going to just be really grateful for the 2 girls we have.

We are undecided, we have DH's daughter and then the twins and then RaeLynn so we have a lot of kids. But on the other hand, I loved being pregnant and I love kids and wouldn't mind having another, of course I would want to wait 2-3 years before the next one.

This is the same for me, pretty much exactly.

I'm done... We have 4. I'm spent! I'd love to have one more, if I could stay home permanently. But, that's not happening, so no more babes for me! I also would be in the AMA category if I chose to have another, which isn't happening, cause being high risk stressed me out too much! It actually gave me anxiety, so no thanks!

I would LOVE to have another! I always thought we would have 4 BUT I'm undecided as to if we actually will. I'd be over 40 with another. I don't feel done but I might have to make peace with it. We have 3 awesome healthy kids now.

I would love to have more. I want as many as God gives us. If Isabelle is our only child I will be more than happy. I want to wait at least a year before trying again just to give my body time to recoup. I need to start looking up NFP while breastfeeding.

I would have several more, if hubby would allow it, he is done!

I love being pregnant, I love a big busy noisy house full of laughing faces.

Makes me sad to know I will never be pregnant again :-(

I want to have at least one more, but not until I give my body some time to really recuperate. C-section #2 and #3 were fairly close together, and it has been a harder recovery. I think we'll try for another when I feel like my body is good and healthy and ready to do it again, so we won't start trying again for... I don't know... at least a year and a half to two years.

Being pregnant is one of my very favorite things, but I'm pretty sure we are done. I would like to have "just one more", but I fear that is always how I'll feel. My mother-in-law told me she can't take any more surprises, not that it would stop us. We'll see if hubby follows through with the vasectomy. He had one scheduled after the 4th and cancelled it. Plus, I worry about the risks as I get older.

One of my friends said it would be great for us to have 3 bigs and 3 littles. I agree, but I doubt it's in the cards. It's very sad to think I might never be pregnant again.

Husband says we are done, I don't feel done. I'd love more kids, somehow I feel like we are just starting out I think having had an amazing birth experience plays into that, I can't imagine never being pregnant or giving birth again. Makes me very sad. Right now I'm grateful for my 2 amazing kids, and am trying not to think about it. But I'll probably be praying for a surprise in a year or two lol.

We both agreed that we were done. Really two is plenty for us, but like Anya said, having an amazing (fast & unmedicated) birth this time kind of made me want to do it again! After my first pregnancy with HG & a ridiculously long induction, it took me 6 years to decide to do it again, and even then, we were TTC with MA. A few weeks ago, there was a post where some of you said you had baby fever again already, and being still pregnant, I read that & thought you all were nuts, but now I totally get it.

I believe that Darion will be our only biological child. I grew up in a large family (6 children) so I don't want that experience again or want it for my child. Our plan was always to have one biological child and adopt one baby or young child in need. I want to make sure that I can put all of my children through college and they can have the attention from us that they need.

That's something that I always felt growing up, that my parents had VERY little time for each of us. I understood that they did their best with so many of us and their own household resposibilities plus work. But it would have been nicer to have had more one on one time with them growing up. Many times I needed help with homework or the like and my parents had to either rush through it or couldn't get to it at all. I'd rather not risk repeating that experience for my children.

I believe that two is more than enough for us.

Done done done!!!! No more for us! I even got my husband a vasectomy for our 8 yr wedding anniversary, He had it done a couple weeks after Evelyn was born. I feel complete and absolutely do not want to be pregnant again! I always loved the delivery part but the pregnancy does me in.

I am done. I had a tubal when I had my c section. I don't think my body could handle being pregnant again, especially since I will be 45 in a few months. For those of you who think you will be too old to have another, its not that bad, especially if you are 35-40. I declined all the extra tests and tried not to think about potential problems due to my age. Only thing I did was extra ultrsounds. I am thankful that I have a healthy baby even tho I was way into AMA. I have to tell you tho, once you hit 40 I found there are a lot more daily aches and pains in general, so being pregnant is a bit more difficult. I always wanted 3 children, but had been happy with my 2, and am even happier with 3!

Undecided. I have a hard time saying that Ryder is my last baby. I don't feel done. In two or three years maybe. I'll be 30 or 31 then, so I still have lots of time! But I also want to solidify my career before more kids come along. But 3 kids would be the maximum

I didn't think I would, but I really miss being pregnant! I love having Rosie in my arms and I can't imagine life without her here now, but I am also 100% sure that I want at least one more, probably 2 if DH agrees.

Oh no, definitely not done!!!

Well, I think df would be OK with being done, I know I'm not though. I always wanted a big family, and we have agreed on 4. He has a daughter from a previous relationship.

I get baby fever almost as soon as I'm not pregnant Lol. But we need to wait a few years before having anymore, so getting an IUD in next week
