    Default Did you feel you weren't done and stopped anyway..?

    For logistically reasons?
    What factors did you consider?
    Especially going from 3-4...

    Did that ache ever go away?
    Do you regret your decision?

    I don't feel done either... but my DH does, so I have to respect his choice. Funny, he was the one initially who wanted more.

    We're done but dont want to be. Logistics dont work in our favor now, 1 more would kill us.

    Hi all, I say if you really feel like you need another baby then your not done!
    I had 3 in my first marriage and my husband at the time had a vasectomy when our youngest Was 7 weeks old...not a good idea because you are maternally satisfied just having had a newborn....I knew it was a bad move but he was adamant that we werent having anymore.......well long story short it was 5 years before l brought it up with him and to say the least he was not interested in even hearing anything l had to say....during that five years l found myself in many unplanned conversations with other mums in the same situation who had gone on to have another child and been completely satisfied. Wether you have another child or not is irelevant to your partner understanding that it is not a desire that you can switch off. For me...l remarried some years later and my husband had no children so we have gone on to have four together......we would like to have our last but have suffered two miscarriages this year....so still hoping as age is definitely not on our side..I am 44yrs and my husband is 47yrs...
