I wish I knew. I probably think about this question at least once a day. I'm really on the fence about it. Dh says we're definitely done, so maybe that is the decision I'm supposed to go with. But I'm just not sure. I think one more would be nice, but then again I do want to a have a life outside of child-raising sometime soon.

One minute I want more then the next I dont...Its such a hard decision. I thought for sure once I saw my SIL baby that I would want one but nope...it had no effect on me which surprised me because I have been having baby fever really bad but I guess its come to an end. Dh doesnt want anymore...I have asked him so many times however yesterday as he was leaving the house he said he felt bad leaving Alyssa alone and that she should have a sibling That man is going to send me to the looney bin..

I am done and I know I am done. Dh was going to have a vasectomy after our 4th (she was a preemie and that scared me from having another one) and I was relieved he was going in and not me, which is strange because it's not like I would have a baby without him.
We had always wanted 4 or 5, so we decided to go for it, knowing we would never regret it. But now we have 5 and I am very happy. I know many of you ladies have more kids than I have, but for myself I cannot imagine being pregnant and taking care of the 5 I have.
After my 4th I just really felt like there was someone else out there for me, even though I spent A LOT of time telling myself all the good reasons for not having any more.
Now that we have Julia, I really feel complete. And she was a terrible baby, so I have no longing for the baby stage at all. I also seem to feel worse after each childbirth. And there are other things that I want to do in my life besides having babies.
We are so thankfull that we have Julia, if we hadn't we still would have been agonizing about having another one.

Ugh, I think about this at least a 100 times a day. DH says we're done, but we're in the 2ww right now, kind of hoping i'm NOT pregnant, and DH is like "oh cool, I guess we'll know soon enough if we're done or not." So I guess he's not THAT against having another one. My kiddos are so young right now I need a break for a bit though, I'm thinking maybe having 1 more in like a year or two, when Kylie is like over 18 months old at least. We'll see though, I jsut get preggo WAYYY too easily though....

Well we have already decided on a total of 6 (not much effort on my part either lol) but I'd really like 8 or 10 (no middle child) I know I'd REALLY have to convince him at that point, but we will see how everything is when we reach our goal of 6, maybe then I will feel the need to have no more, or maybe he will want more, who knows, when will I be done having children? Not sure....when I don't want to get pregnant anymore we already agreed on adopting (that is on top of the 6) so, I think it will be a LONG time until I stop having children....in one way or another.
