I have 8, and am done. I was done at 6, but 7 came along. Then I was really done and #8 pissed me off lol

It's all good, she's a sweetheart and couldn't imagine a world without her.

I have 5, with #6 set to arrive any day. I know I'm finished because hubby had a vasectomy.

I have 5, plus two extras who live with us.

I know I'm done because the thought of being pregnant and doing the whole baby thing again makes me want to hide under the table.

I have ten and, while I'm not planning any more, I haven't ruled it out either.

I have 6 and while I don't want to completely rule out more I have to admit that I haven't had a strong urge to add to my family since #6 was born.

I had 2 with my ex-h, and am pregnant with dh and my 2nd together. Things are already so chaotic (it would be a million times easier if we had full custody of my oldest 2), we will be done after this baby is born. I don't think my body could handle more babies, even if our finances could. I know I'm going to be sad that we can't have more, but it's really not possible. Unless of course, we win the lottery, then we can reconsider it!

We have 4 girls. The older 3 were from my exH but DH adopted them. The baby is only 3 months old but another one or two are planned for later.

Dh and I have 5. We always thought we wanted 4 or 5, and after #5 we both felt our family was complete.

We have 3 and have officially decided to start working on number 4 in a month or 2. That will be the last one, though, so I'm trying to wrap my head around knowing that everything will be for the last time.
