So...I came lurking in here to help remind myself that I'm done having babies! (and posted thanks to the "lurker's challenge" - nice idea by the way...)

I'm a 32 year old SAHM. I have two girls, ages 21months and 5 years old. My youngest one is a very "spirited" child who keeps me running 24/7...she is the reason we are "done" plus...we feel that 2 is all we can handle, emotionally, physically and financially. (DH and I have been married now for almost 8 years)

But...and there is alway's a "but"....I'm having that itch.

I'm guessing it is from the fact that my sister is due in August, and two of my friends have recently announced that they are expecting too!

How did you all know for sure that you were done? How can you seriously convince yourself that you are done?

Because part of me is wanting to "try for that baby boy"...

I had great pregnancies with both of my girls...loved being pregnant, too.

Ugh. What to do, what to do?

Im trying to convince myself im done too!!! Expecially since my DH has a vascetomy scheduled in 2 weeks!!!
I have a 3yr old girl, a 1 month old boy and an 8 yr old stepson. I know thats all we really can and want to handle.
But im afraid that in a few years ill be yearning for another. *sigh* But i know we are done. we have to be!

How does your DH feel about possibly having more? I know mine doesnt want anymore. I had to convince him to have the last one. lol.

Im done as after i had my little girl i had to have a hysterectomy so that made that.My advice to you is that you and D/H really need to sit down and talk about it and i mean to be truelly honest with him on your feelings if you have the itch to try for a boy tell him.Good luck with what ever you decide.

I agree that you and dh should sit down and talk about what you two really want and also let him know your feeling. Trust me, when I had my tubal, I thought I was finished but I had that nagging little feeling that I wanted one more. However, I am now glad with the decision I made but I still get baby fever every once in awhile. Good luck on your decision.
