We knew we didnt want anymore than 3 so we knew before I was actually pregnant that it would be our last.

~My thanks to *Kiliki* for the siggy and Lucy S for the blinkies~

No. I knew before conception that I wanted only one more. During my sucky horrible pregnancy it reinforced that yes, I only wanted this last one. Now that she's here, im still sure I don't want more..

I was pregnant when I decided that I didnt want to go through that again.
My SPD was so painful.Noelia was healthy the whole time,and Im thankful for that,but the pain was excrutiating!!
I remember not being able to get out of bed on my own,not being able to get dressed without help,not being able to walk,turn over in bed..I knew that I just couldent do that again.

Thank you SO much for my new siggy Julia (Julka)!

before i got pregnant this time, I thought i was done, but didn't make it official... I thought that maybe if we wanted to start all over again in 4-5 years it would be good... then I got preg. and now I know for sure that I'm done.... I knew as soon as the + test came up that this was my very last baby.

I knew this would be the last one before he was conceived. We started late. We had our girl (when I was 36), then got our boy last year. I turn 40 this year and am happy to have the child bearing years behind us!

Yes, well sort of. After #3 I knew I wanted one more, but I still worried I wouldn't feel "done" if we had one more. Once I was pregnant with #4, I felt done, and still do to this day.

Yes. Grant's older brother was stillborn, and we lost Grant's co-triplets at 14 weeks. We were pretty sure we were done before was conceived Grant, when we lost the other babies we were sure. Grant's NICU stay was just the nail in the coffin.

Thank you Vicki for my awesome siggy!!

i originally wanted 4. After my first I told DH i never wanted to do that again. After #2 I wanted more but then got PPD and again said no more. But after the PPD was gone I decided I wanted one more and that was it. Then I hated being preggo again and having three has been overwhelming! I feel like Baylee completes our family and we are done. We decided that for sure while she was baking

Nope...I am just coming around to the idea. DH is 41 and he said no more after 40. I'm liking the freedom that comes with the kids getting older, but sometimes it does make me sad to think that I will not have any more babies.
