Not wanting but not ruling it out??

Well Im a mum of four, my kids are 7,5,2 1/2 and 1 1/2. Me and dh arent trying.. he says no more.. i even say it.. but some part of me still thinks about pregnancy, birth, the new born stage.. i always think maybe in 5+ years maybe.. dh still says no... but honestly i will miss not having a baby at home with me.. im going to be lost.. i just feel at the moment in the future i will want another.. Apart of me is happy with 4 though because my kids are alot of work, worry..plus i lost 3ls of blood with 2 of my births.. so its risky.. i just dont know how to feel about it.

I think it's perfectly normal to think of another baby. It's in our nature. We love to love and nurture, however, you have to think of your health as well!
What are your DH's reason for no more?

Dh reason- 4 already, I think just having four kids is a little stressful at times.. probably the money to.. dh is selfish though.. like i love him but im basically the one that looks after the kids 85% of the time.. so i think its the more responsibility to.
He likes to be able to go out on nights out together and getting family to babysit is hard lol. I think its everything for him.. plus my health to. I think hes always just wanted four.. and is happy with that 2.

Hello and welcome! I think it's normal, and it sounds like you've got a lot on your plate at the moment.

What is wrong with your health if you don't mind me asking? I come from a family of 5 kids. I know it can be expensive but it is so worth it!
