We are so done, 3 is a good number, if I wouldn't of had twins the first time I'm sure we would of been done at two,lol. Pregnancy's are so hard on my body. I feel blessed to have my kids though.

We planned to have a V after #3 was born, we were so certain that we had as much as we could handle. I am SO THANKFUL that didn't happen, my life is so much richer because of the children that have come along since. We don't know for sure that this will be our last, but we don't know for sure we will have more. We are 100% open to God's will for us either way.

It depends. As I haven't had an u/s yet, I'm still paranoid that it's twins.. If it is, then I'm done. If it's not, I'd like one more. I think the age gap we have between dd and this one is perfect (she'll turn 4 a month after this one comes) and since SO wants to go back to school, another 4 years would probably be a great time.

This will most likely be our last. I am so high risk and I will be 38 in Feb. DH already told me if I want another one it will have to be right away and I don't think I am up for it.

Unsure. This is #3 for us. We had always talked about having 3 kids, but we're still pretty young. I'm 30 and DH is 29, so we still have time to reevaluate in a few years. I'm not ready to say we are done even if I think we probably are. I guess I'm just afraid of closing the door on this phase of my life.

This is only #2... definitely not done! However there is something to be said for waiting a little longer. I am super happy about the 2 year spacing since it is exactly what we were shooting for, but considering what I am going through right now, I would love to have both LOs in school/preschool, potty trained, sleeping through the night, and fully weaned with all baby teeth in, before I go through my next 1st trimester!

I will be 31 when this one is born, hoping to try for another one or two or even more depending on what we/I can handle. I always thought my fertility would be the limiting factor but we shall see.

Pretty sure this will be our last but just not 100% sure yet. We have always talked about 3-4 kids but 3 is starting to feel very right for me. We both come from bigger families (DF is oldest of 4, I'm oldest of 9) so he is really pushing for one more after this. We are still young (I'm 26 and he is 31) so I feel like we still have plenty of time to reevaluate before we make any final decisions.

I have no idea. I used to want 6 kids, then I had a high maintenance baby. I wasn't sure I was ready for #2. Im still not sure and this was totally planned. I think if its a girl this time we may stop. Or we may wait 4-5 years before the next.

a third is up in the air for us as well...we've talked about if this one is another boy, then we will be more likely to try for a third. However, DH has said, if this is a girl, then we may be done. Who knows! I wouldn't mind 3 though

Thought we were done when we found out we were pregnant. We are 3 days away from having our son, whom we are adopting, come home! So this is definitely the last one. 3 is enough LOL!

If I am lucky enough to carry both of the babies to term I think we are done. If we do have another it would have to be quick cuz I am old haha. And I cannot imagine being pregnant again right now

This will be our last planned one. DH refuses to get a vasectomy and I refuse to get my tubes tied, so we'll see what happens. LOL! This is my first time being pregnant as a SAHM, and I have to say, it's SO MUCH HARDER than when I was working!

This will be likely be our first and only pregnancy together and hopefull we get babies number 1 and 2 together out of this. We have always said we wanted three kids together and with DH's son we would have 4 total. Since IVF is our only option and we have maxed all credit cards I just don't see us being able to ever afford it again. That could change since we are young but with our issues age is on our side now and the success rates as we get older are low. We never plan on preventing though so if something happens by chance then we will take any miracle we get.
