You have probably have been asked this many times before but I'm curious -

Is your family complete? and if not how many do you feel or think would make it complete?

For me I knew I just had to have 4 kids but now I still don't feel my family is complete. I would like at least 1 or 2 more. Most everyone here (in Cyprus) thinks 4 is alot but it just doesn't feel like alot to me. Call me crazy but I need kids around me, makes me feel young! Another thing I'm always told "oh 2 boys and 2 girls that's great now you can stop"! Well not for me. So hopefully I'll be shocking people with the annoucement of another baby on the way. Wouldn't his family love that!! (not really, since I'm not Cypriot they just don't 'get me' and how I think. Do they try to? not really) This is what I have to put up with but I have no regrets because I love my dh so much! So I guess I went a little off topic here Sorry. So does your family feel complete?

My family definitly doesn't feel complete yet.. I'm not sure when it will I have the number 8 in my head but we'll see. I may feel done after the next one or maybe not until after #10 comes! lol.. I have heard from a lot of families that are finished having children and they tell me that you just feel like it's done.. I'm not there yet. not sure when I will be.

I hate comments like that. having children is so personal. It's just SO RUDE IMO to comment on what is enough.. I would never go to someone who has no kids and say... my how lucky you are! or Glad I'm not in your shoes. it just isn't done.

I hope you do get what you want and have a few more babies! I agree! having kids DOES make you feel young!

You can go off topic anytime you like! we're here to support you! and most of us have had comments like that! your not alone!

I felt complete wiht Ella, LOL. It was a feeling of contentment that I did not feel after any of my other births. Not just my family being complete but ME being complete if that makes sense. Then SURPRISE!!! number 7 on the way. It is going to be interesting to see how the dynamics change. And since I am not planning on doing anything permanent after this birth who knows.....maybe subconciously I am not done, LOL
