    Default Last pregnancy

    Anyone else having their last pregnancy? How are you feeling about it? I am and having huge mixed emotions about it! One minute I think I can't wait to never be pregnant again, the next I'm close to tears about this being my last. Darn hormones!

    Really relieved. This is baby number 3 and even though I will never get a little princess (the main reason we went back again) I am so glad that one day I will get my body to myself again. I'm glad that I don't have to have ms again, or SPD or be so tired I neglect my other kids.

    Me too. This is my 7th pregnancy, my last was a surprise that ended in a mmc. We had no plans for any more after 5. Then I unexpectedly got pregnant again before I had a chance to really think if we were done.
    After the mc I felt I wanted to try one last time for a few cycles but yeh, didn't have to!
    But I'm 35 this year and 6 children is more than I ever thought I'd be blessed with.
    I will have 3 boys and 3 girls by August.
    I think I'll always feel like I miss the thought of adding another to my family but you have to make a decision to stop one day. Well unless you're like my friend who is having number 11 and plans to just keep going until menopause

    Eta, my husband is getting a vasectomy, what will you other ladies do for permanent birth control?

    Vasectomy - as soon as hubby finishes sowing his oats (he's a farmer and a little busy on the farm this month).

    Yep this is our 4th and definitely last. We have said that with all the others too but never meant it. But this time something feels different- i feel relieved. Dh has decided to have the snip and tbh neither of us can wait! Theres sone sadness that we will never have a boy but overall we are happy to finally say this is it.

    me + he = dd1 (July 2007), dd2 (July 2010), dd3 (August 2012), dd4 (due May 2014) + sil (1997)

    Currently 37 weeks with #2 and hopefully this is it for us. I've only ever wanted two, and so does DH.

    I'm so incredibly grateful to be able to carry and deliver my own babies, but I REALLY dislike being pregnant so I'm glad I never have to do this again!

    I love my kids, but don't enjoy being pregnant - I don't think it is helped by having mc s. It is a means to a very good end.

    This is my 4th earth-bound baby hopefully but 8th one we have made. I have been pregnant or trying to fall pregnant for the last 10 years and I am tired but thankful that we have some precious cherubs to show for it. The road to get our initial babies and this one has been long and taxing.

    I am looking forward to being able to keep my fitness this time and enjoying the time I have with my kids without being tired or unable to run, eat certain foods, on bed rest etc.

    DH has his pre-op appt for a vasectomy this week

    I love all your replies :-) I particularly love that you are pointing out all the positives of being 'done'. Like you Little Ted, we've also been either pregnant or TTC for almost 10yrs. With 2yr to get DS1 then 3 miscarriages before DS2 (DD in the middle). I know we are done. DH will book in for a vasectomy closer to due date or maybe after birth (ops, I mean straight away!). I think it's just changing that focus in my mind. For so long it's been about having a baby, making a baby, looking after a baby, and very soon it will be a different focus. I am excited about getting fit again, and being able to be more active with my children. Just that little part of me still going, awe last one.....

    I'm 30 weeks with no 2 and this is the last pregnancy for me. I feel that I've been so lucky to fall pregnant so easily both times and fingers crossed end up with both earth bound.

    I'm suffering terribly this pregnancy with SPD - I didn't have it last time. Some days I find it hard to focus on the positives of being pregnant and I just want it to be over and done with, but in my heart I know just how lucky I am. I don't complain to anyone except DP.

    The only thing I'm really going miss is the kicks. There's nothing like feeling the bub move.

    No birth control plans just yet, I'll probably just go back on the pill. It worked well for me for 10+ years.

    While I say I'm totally done, I would consider carrying a baby for my sister if she needed me to. That would be my only exception

    I am 14wks with #4, and this is it for us. I had done a whole lot of soul searching and agreed that we were done at i#3, but i guess we weren't. He is getting the snip (as soon as he organises it!), because i never want to go through what we have been through in having an unplanned pregnancy that he didn't want. He's slowly getting his head around it now, as am i, but we are both coming from different angles.
    I don't do pregnancy well, either. Varicose veins, hormonal headaches daily, MS and SPD, so will be happy to have this over with. I am not feeling overly emotional about this being our last, i feel kind of relieved!
