DH and I have always talked about having 3 and that they would all be somewhere between 2-3 years apart.

But seeing how badly I'm handling this (relatively) easy pregnancy and managing a toddler I am seriously considering either delaying the next one by a few years or not having a third. Or adopting a 3rd.

We have a long time to discuss it but I'm feeling more and more resolute that this one will be my last. Of course, if I have another boy and really want a girl that may change

I do not feel that God is done growing our family. But this will be our last pregnancy. We were in the very early stages of an international adoption when we found out we were pregnant. Adoption is and has been on our hearts and we know that with the health concern and most likely hysterectomy at deliver of this child out decision will be made somewhat for us. We do not have a family size limit or number this will be our third and if we feel lead and called to parent 10 then so be it, if it is four then so be it we try not to make the plans!

I'm pretty sure this is our last, too. I really have no urge to be pregnant ever again after this time, so I hope all goes well. Two is plenty for us. I think the only thing that will change my mind is if we magically end up someday being able to afford a nanny, housekeeper, and a personal trainer, lol.

I don't know after this. I am so miserable this maybe our last but I'm not sure if I'm ready to make that decision a permanent one.

Definitely our last. We thought we were so done after our last child was born. DH is already calling around about a vasectomy. We are so beyond DONE

Last. We said that after our youngest but it never really felt right. This time it does.

This is it, and I feel good about it, unlike before when we said we were done.
My last 2 are 3.5yrs apart and there is a huge difference in how I handled being pregnant. It was almost too easy. This one will be 2yrs from the last and I am exhausted.

I am pretty sure this will be it.. I am not ready to say for certain but this pregnancy has been sooo rough on me with health issues and stuff. I think I want to be done.

I always thought 3 was a good number...lots of positives in my mind including still being able to fit into a car if need be...silly but being 1 of 4 kids it never was an option. However with #2 &#3 coming at the same time my DH just told me he may want a 4th...I said lets see if we can handle 3 before we think about 4..this is coming from the same man who said he wanted as many babies as I would give him until we had our DD and changed to maybe 1 or 2 is ok lol!

This little surprise will definitely be our last. Dh has already talked to his doctor about getting a vasectomy, but lately he's been asking if I could just get it done after delivery. I think he's getting scared, but nearly all his friends have had it done. After having a baby only 9 months ago, I feel like I've been pregnant forever! I'm so ready just to stay one size instead of waking up every morning & try to figure out what fits. Also I'm pretty sure, since this is our fourth, that I'm beyond the maximum number of kids I can handle alone (dh is gone for work a lot). At least my other children are 9 and 5 and can take care of themselves more (dress & bathe themselves at least). I'm so tired already, I just pray I can do this.

This is probably my last. Although unexpected, I love being pregnant, and meeting a new soul, and am thrilled to be pregnant again. But, seeing how the baby's dad has handled this one, I can't imagine us having more, and I am NOT going through pregnany alone again!!

This will be our last . I always thought it would be great to have three, but DH is older than me and he doesn't want to be the "old Dad", and I'm fine with that. I feel like 2 is very managable for our busy family.

This one is definitely our last. It is much easier on me this time around. Last time I was pregnant DS1 was just 14 months old. This time DS2 is almost 3.5 years. But I think 3 is a good number and I feel like anymore than that will add too much stress.

We are thinking 3 is our magic number so one more after this one. I told DH that it is up to re-evaluation each time though. I understand things could go wrong that make it impossible for me to have another. My mom was told after me (her second) that she could not have anymore. So we will see what the doctors say. If I get the okay though I will probably go back to the fertility doctor to try for one with the possibility of two more but that's it. We originally wanted 4 but we know each time we go on clomid there is a chance of twins and the thought of 5 kids is terrifying to me for some reason. hahah

This is probably the last time I want to be pregnant, but we've always felt called to adoption, so we may have more children join the family somewhere down the line.

This is it, no more for me...LOL three is a awesome number and it feels complete this time. Also I am so tired this time around, I was 20 when I had my first, 22 with my second and now I will be 29 with this little one...I am too **** old now!!! Nothing against moms over 30 but for me....I cant do it again. I think I will cry at this delivery because I know its over for real this time. Hubby will be getting snipped to make sure of that.
