Who are our first time mommies? Do you plan on having more than one? Anyone looking forward to a large family? For the btdt mommies, is this your last?

This is my second. I originally wanted 4 and DH wanted 2, but we agreed on 3. However, we had so much trouble getting pregnant the 2nd time and that ended in a loss that took several months to resolve, and then it took a while to achieve this pregnancy so we're not sure we're going to try for a 3rd at this point. I really wanted a boy but DH is happy with 2 daughters so we may be done.

It's kind of funny really. We live in the house that DH's mother and aunt grew up in. We bought it after his grandmother passed away. So it seems kind of fitting to raise 2 more girls there.

This is our first!! We want 2-3, but we have a lot of fertility issues. I'd be willing to go through meds & IUI one more time. Of course, if we got a "surprise" naturally afterwards, that would be a blessing. We are also aware that this may be our only child that we are able conceive. We hope not, but we feel so blessed to even get this little guy!! Fertility treatments are extremely expensive, so we won't try again for at least a few years.
Stopped BCP & began TTC in January 2013- no ovulation, no cycles for 3 months
May-July 2013- provera cycles with no ovulation
August/September 2013-50 mg clomid cycles with no ovulation
October 2013- SA revealed low motility--referred to RE
January 2014- DHs repeat SA came back "normal"! I was diagnosed with PCOS
February 2014- IUI #1 on Valentine's Day with 2 mature follicles- BFN
March 2014- BCP to clear up cysts
April 2014- IUI #2 on 4/9/14 with 3 mature follicles and 3 catching up! BFP at 10dpiui!!!!!! So thankful!!! Beta #1 @ 13 DPO- 167; Beta #2 @ 15 DPO- 384!

This is our 5th. I think we would have kept going until we had another girl. I love having a big family and I don't have an exact number in mind. But now that we know it's a little girl, I feel pretty complete. Of course I said that after #3 and #4. As of right now, we're not planning to have anymore kids but neither of us will do any sort of permanent fix so I never say never.

This is the first for us. I never desired having children (this baby was unplanned), but I have a feeling we will probably end up having another. We shall see how everything turns out with this one.

This one is #5 for me! I will be having my tubes tied. I would have more but I am turning 40 in October, and have numerous medical issues. I feel like our family is complete and don't want to push it any further! Not to mention this will be my 5th c-section and my docs keep suggesting that this should be my last. I am okay with that, after all I am FINALLY getting my baby girl! Course, if somebody yells BOY in the OR, I might change my mind!

This is number 10 for us, and we are done. My husband had a vasectomy after baby #9, so we were done then God had other plans for us I guess....so unless he has other surprises planned, we are done We kind of have the perfect set up since we had our four girls first, then four boys....the last one was a girl so she was kind of all alone. Now that she's getting a little sister, it's gggg, bbbb, gg Works perfectly because everyone has a BFF

this is #3 for us, and though I wanted #3, we were done after 2. i'm having a c-section and debating on getting my tubes tied then or having husband get snipped. since i thought #2 was our last, i remember being very "in the moment" about every last stage (during pregnancy and her baby-hood). with this one, i'm enjoying it all (even the not great parts) even more knowing without a doubt that i won't be pregnant again. it's not as bittersweet as i thought though, i'm very much at peace with this chapter closing.

This is our first. We're hopeful for four, but it took us two years to conceive, and then we suddenly conceived naturally, so we're not sure what will happen with a second (or more). Hopefully at least one more, but we'll see. We feel so blessed to have this one

This is the first for us! We were lucky to conceive after just 3 months, so hopefully future babies will be just as easy for us. I want 4, DH wants 3. We'll see who wins in the end!

I love hearing all the big families on this board!!

This is #3 and our last. After #2, we were on the fence about having a third, but figured we would wait a few years to decide for sure. Well surprises happen in life and now we will have 2 within 18 months.

DH will be getting snipped after this baby.

This is our second. DH wants it to be our last, especially because of my PCOS, but I would like at least one more. We'll see.
