Dh and I can really truly only afford 2 kids. We also went through 2 years of hell to be able to conceive DD2. We had given up hope of having a second biological child and started the process to become foster parents with hopes to adopt one day. Emotionally, I can't handle TTC again.
Yet, here I am. I miss being pregnant. I really miss it. It went by entirely too quickly. And DD2's birth was wonderful. Between an easy pregnancy and easy delivery, I want to experience it all just ONE more time. DH keeps talking about trying for a boy. I was so sure while I was pregnant that I was done...they could take it all out I never wanted to experience pregnancy again.
I must be crazy. I know we can't afford a 3rd. My family does feel 100% complete. I really can't see us with more kids. I kind of wonder if part of it is because I wish I had this experience with BOTH kids. Kinda regret for not being more informed. Plus, I love my midwives and don't want to just see them for a yearly exam

Maybe think about it for awhile to really come up with a decision? I have no clue how I'll ever feel done and that my family is complete. I can't imagine that feeling.
This. DH and I agreed on two but once Claire was born I knew I wanted at least three. I can't imagine going through my next pregnancy knowing that I'll never feel a baby kick inside me ever again. That I'll never give birth again or hold my own newborn baby. It would kill me! Maybe give it some time and take comfort in knowing you always have the option of trying for a third if you decide to.
