Nope not at all! He is our first, and we want at least one more, possibly two. He's such a good baby though. If he weren't, my opinion might be different lol

I soooo wish I could say we are done, but that has very little to do with Dawsyn. She has been pretty easy and laid back so far. I have other projects and ambitions that I want to focus on though other than childbearing. I have been a SAHM for 3 years now (though for the past 1 year before Dawsyn worked 1 day per week and have been studying for my masters) and I am so ready to change my focus and begin working 3 days per week and get my professional practice licence. And get back to being Rachel and not just mommy.

That being said, when I think deep down about the family life we want, more children are definitely part of that equation. They are oh so much work, but the payoff is so worth it. And DH wants to try for a boy. I guess we will see if Dawsyn continues to be an easy baby before we make any final decisions.

I thought two or three but now I think definitely two. It has a bit to do with H. He is super high needs and I don't know what I would do with a baby that is this needy along with two others. Honestly though that wouldn't change my mind, I'd make it work, but our home is a good size for two kids and financially and work-wise I think 2 is good. When I was thinking 3 it was really not thinking it through.

Nope, I knew before having baby C that he would be my LAST baby!! After it taking so long to get number 3 it has really showed me that I'm really done and feel good about it. I had 2 independent kids then had another tiny baby Took a bit to adjust, but now we wouldn't know life without him!! He completes our family.

I would LOVE another, but there is no way that DH would go for it. I guess we are done with 4.

I swear we are sisters. I was gonna write the SAME thing!! I'm super happy that we went for baby #3, as is DH especially since he got his boy. But it has been an adjustment after having a 6 and 4 year old. Although I will say it is easier compared to having a 2yo and a newborn.

But anyway, back on topic, yes, we are very much done and Jude, being my 3rd high maintenance baby, has set it even more in stone. We are happy being a 5-family.

I have no desire to ever grow more children, but I would adopt down the line if I could afford it. Not a baby. I'd like a 4-5 yr old child.

Kind of.. I wanted 4 before I had Miah now I definitely want 3! SO wants 1 more girl and a boy, and so do I! Were going to start trying again after Miah turns 2 so then she will be 3 or older by the time I have my next, I want my children to be 3 years apart at least.

I wasn't sold one way or another before, and now I lean more to the yes. The on,y reason I wouldn't would be if we couldn't get our ducks in a row. Logster was a surprise and had I planned, a couple things would've been different... Though it's worked out beautifully. I'm just a control freak. I would've been like we will have X in savings, X per week, child are planned for years.

I guess I'll wait a bit and let Logan kinda dictate it. I don't think I'd want to wait too long. SO will be 39, I'll be 34 and his older kids are already 10 and 7. I'm kind of loving the idea of two little boys though. Which means I'd probably have a girl.

Yes. A few times actually. I always thought I wanted 3 until I was so uncomfortable during pregnancy. By the end of my pregnancy I wasn't so sure. Then I had a traumatizing labor & delivery & I was 100% certain I would never have another. Now I love him so much, I definitely want a 3rd.

We still would like 3, but we still want a big gap. This was my before-career baby Now I want to focus on school then get a good job and then have a baby at least a year into it..so still 5 years probably.
Plus mizza and my babies are twins Both super high maintenance so I think dh and I are traumatized for a little while...

My DD was an amazing baby, so laid back and easy going. My DS is even better. There will defiantly be another little one in our future. I love my kids now but I don't feel like my family is complete yet. I would love to give my daughter a sister and my son a brother but I don't think 4 is what will work for us. We'll see how it goes down the road. Carter will be at least 3 before we start TTC so I've got some time to think about it.

this sounds exactly like me. I would love to have one more, but I don't think I could get dh to do it. plus I really don't think we could financially afford it. Daycare for 3 is pretty rough, and we have cheap daycare since it is family. My oldest son is 13 so he no longer needs care, but we pay out $700 a month for the other kiddos. I can't imagine adding another $400 a month to that. It would be higher than a house payment, and we just can't afford for me to be a SAHM right now. By the time we could afford it I will be well into my 40's.

I'm pretty sure William is our last. I wasn't sure before.
He is a great baby. I just feel like 3 is keeping me plenty busy.
We are both thrilled we had a surprise 3rd kiddo.

I've said it before, I'll say it again, done and very comfortable with that decision.

Yep, we are already paying $1500 a month in daycare so another infant would put us at almost $2200! Like whoa. I don't know that if we did have another that the "ache" would go away either. Probably not. I never really had a special number in mind for how many kids I'd want, but I would be thrilled to have more, but it doesn't seem realistic for us. And for the nosy rosies in real life that inquire, I think I'd want another even if we already had a girl....
