I know this might be a little soon to ask since most of us are still trying to get over the sleepless nights with our newborns. Being a first time Mom, I really enjoy having and raising a baby. In fact, my goal is to have at least another two though I want to wait it out until Adelyn is at least two years of age. Hard enough raising a newborn, never mind raising two or three of them at once.

Do you want anymore kids?
If so, how long until you TTC?
If you are done having kids, why?

This is my first child so I want to have at least one more. I had a c-section so it's generally recommended that I wait 2 years before conceiving. I was initially a bit disappointed because I was considering having babies close together, but now that I've given birth I've realized that I've definitely NOT ready to get pregnant again anytime soon. Now I'm thinking that waiting 2 years before TTC my second child sounds just about right (provided I get pregnant as quickly as last time!).

If given the chance, I would get pregnant again tomorrow. My pregnancy wasn't super easy, but I didn't find it too difficult either. Henry is a dream baby, so he makes it easy to want more.

DH has a different opinion though lol.

As of right now, our plan is to TTC on Henry's 1st birthday.

Houghtie I think we are having similar experiences. I hated being pregnant and I was sick so much, but the moment Mila came out, I was ready to do it all again. I really want my kids to be close in age so we're basically just waiting for my body to be ready again. Hoping to conceive in a few months but I'm breastfeeding so we'll see what Mother Nature does. Now that I have experienced motherhood, I think I will find my second pregnancy to be a lot more enjoyable. I think I will appreciate it more and not be so impatient. Luckily my hubby is just as excited for this as I am! I think HE will enjoy my pregnancy more too because he knows how great it is to be a Dad. With my first pregnancy it was like I went through a lot of it by myself. He couldn't really relate/bond like I could. I think it would be more real for him the second time around.

Do you want anymore kids? maybe
If so, how long until you TTC? 4-5 years if at all
If you are done having kids, why? 98% sure we are, but we are still young

If so, how long until you TTC? 5 years at least we're young there is no rush..5 years puts me at 26 and DH at 27. I love Layla but i could not have 2 in diapers.. plus another pregnancy anytime soon would not be good for my mental health. i commend anyone who has children back to back

I think if you asked this again in a few months when they are crawling and ratting through cupboards, moving onto the toddler age where theyre shoving a towel under the door to shield you from seeing the light on in their room at 1am..
I'm not sure sure people would be jumping to TTC

Newborns are pieces of cake imo. (If you can handle the lack of sleep)
I have an 11 year old and a 13 year old
I think if anyone could just fast forward time and ponder dealing with a few teens at once, it wouldnt be so cute

We may ttc in about a year as I had my 3rd c-sec
my surgeon said my uterus looks awesome and not thinned out at all.
Glad I asked him lol!

oooh man how I dread this question every time its asked..loool..Dh and I are so different in opinions about having more.

I was "done" several times, but 8 kids later........

Pregnancy is sooooo hard on my body because of age and other back and neck conditions that I just cant think of pregnancy again, and other things...but DH is already talking about another and actively trying by Feb. !!

We will see, but hopefully my 'clock' will be done ticking by then.

We have two frozen embryos wand will try with them but will not do another full IVF round.
This won't be for at least another 4 years though.

A toddler and a newborn have me good for an indefinite amt of time. If we have another it would be our last. Definitely nothing sooner than 2yrs though.

Do you want anymore kids? Yes... I would like at least 1 more
If so, how long until you TTC? 3 to 4years

I love my girls and they are spaced out in age enough that my oldest is a great big sister. So I would love to have 1 more with the same age spacing or more.

I definitely plan to have one more. The husband and I both agree that two is a good number, three being an oops. I plan to wait at least 2-3 years. Not too long. I turn 31 this year so I want to give myself plenty of time to heal but not wait too long so that TTC isn't harder.

We are done at 5. Emmie is our last and I really think she completes our family. My husband got a vasectomy 2 weeks ago to make sure we're really done, lol.

I would really like to have another. Right now it doesn't look like it will happen, but I am more than in love with this little girl and am so lucky to have her

I had such a terrible pregnancy that I never want to get pregnant again. I had always wanted a large family, but I am done. DH on the other hand wants at least one more. I feel bad to disappoint him so much with just having the one. I want to get a tubal done soon, but DH is unwilling to talk about it at all.

If so, how long until you TTC? Maybe when T is 2 or so? We have 2 frozen embryos so we'd like to use them.
If you are done having kids, why?

I would love more and I would be TTC now but I cant trust what would happen if I lost anymore babies. I really dont think I can put myself through the low fertility TTC and chance of losing another baby. TTC and losing babies destroyed my soul for a very long time..

I am afraid this is it for me. Charlie is my last miracle.. xx
