    I'm currently pregnant with my 4th (my DH 2nd). Right now I don't feel done but after I had my last I was dreading another pregnancy.

    I guess you just 'know' when your done. And for me ATM I'm not done.

    Default Parents with 4 or more kids, are you done?

    I wasn't done until number 5. I couldn't shake it. We both feel completely finished now though

    Currently expecting my no 3, DH's no 5..... I know I'm not done but my DH has freaked out as people always say oh my god 5 kids etc etc. my OB was great- he pointed out a tubal ligation or vasectomy have no Medicare rebate on reversal so once they are done that's it (unless we find 10-15k). So it has bought me more time to convince him we aren't done lol

    Hi i dont have 4 kids or more, i have one and one on the way. I just wanted to share my two cents worth lol.
    Im 27 too and feel im still so young to be "done" with babies. I had a breat pregnancy and birth and so far this one is great too.
    We dont own a house, DH earns well but he is set on 2 kids. He's even said he's getting the snip after this one....gezz it makes it so final, i get teary thinking about it.
    He's a little more realistic than me. He said he doesnt feel the need for more. 2 kids, family of 4 feels complete to him. He is actually from a family of 8! He's thinking about finances - groceries, 4+ bedroom homes are more $$$, getting them thru school while we are probably paying off a mortgage. Probably need another car or a bigger one. Im still undecided about my career. So pretty much living off one wadge with more than 2 kids will be putting a fair bit of strain on us.
    So thinking about it rationally, this will be our last bub because of future plans/careers/jobs and of course finances.
    Im slowly comming to terms with this.

    Yes! Pregnant with no 4 and feel done before bub has even arrived. My youngest is 6 tho and I never felt done until we were expecting again, even tho we held of and had a gap between this bub due and the first 3 kiddies that feeling was just there that I needed number 4

    I thought I was finished after #4, then I suddenly got this overwhelming urge for one more, and I got 2 at once! My husband was so shocked he willingly went out and got the snip. I knew I shouldn't have another because I had bad pelvic instability with the last 2 pregnancies but still felt saddened that there would be no more. But then everything prolapsed and I had to have a hysterectomy last year, which was a relief as 6 is definitely enough for us.
