We are SO not done! We really want a daughter! There has been SIX boys born since 2008 to our extended family (2 of which are ours)! But we really want a daughter so we can honor DH's late sister (she passed when she was 4). We are TTA cause we want to space our children apart.
Logically we're done. Emotionally for me I thought I was until recently. We're not in a good spot to have another. He's about to graduate from school, I just went back to finish my BA, we want to buy a house by the end of this year, plus my health sucks right now. I've been told by a specialist another pg would be murder on my body and I've been diagnosed with endo since having Kevin, the doctors were shocked I even had the two I do have now, they don't think I can have more. However, if it's in the cards and it happens, I will welcome a new addition with open arms and I'm sure DH will too after he comes to from passing out. lol
❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

I'm not done...I don't think, on occasion I do question if we are, but I don't plan to be done.
I'm waiting cuz dh isn't ready and I've been pregnant and/or breastfeeding continuously since September 2006, I want to have at least one day where I'm not before I get pregnant again...and I'm still bf'ing. Plus the not having a job thing that I've droned on about on all my other boards has hurt it too.
I am TTA now because I do not want to have a baby either right before Dh graduates from DLI and we go back to Tx, while we are in Tx, or right as we are getting to our duty station. I want it to be a month or two after we get there so we can get established.
TTA just for child spacing reasons. Well, really I am TTA right now because the hospital I want to birth at won't have opened yet. Then I am TTA Septepmer and October to avoid putting the next kid's birthday at the same time as E's. Then We'll try from Nov - Feb and then quit for a while to avoid holiday birthdays.
There is this 6 week window starting in August we could try if we wanted, but I am not sure yet if I want to...
I'm TTA for alot of reasons. 1st for my emotional well being. LIke Christen, I have been pregnant pretty much since the beginning of 2006. I am drained. This last pregnancy really took a toll on me.
Financially we would be ok once a baby came, but w/ our new insurance it would cost $3000 just to have the baby. Plus I would have nowhere NEAR enough PTO to take leave so most of it would go unpaid....again.
Mike is still in school and there isn't really an end in sight at this point. I work full time so being pregnant is really hard on me physically.
