    Hubby always said 2, we have had two boys and will be TTC a third child in the next 6 months. I haven't even fallen pregnant with #3 and I'm already hoping I can convince hubby of a fourth.. I worry that I'll never feel done. I love it all. The pregnancies, the births, the feeding, watching them grow and learn. It feels as though it's my entire purpose. Hubby on the other hand, absolutely adores our Kids, but often fantasises about the day that they move out and we can travel, socialise more etc. (make our lives about ourselves again)
    Everyone talks about that 'done' feeling, I am hoping I feel that at some point because it would be very hard to live with/drown out, long term!

    We decided before having our first that we would stop at two. Due any day now with our second and we are both 100% sure we are finished. I'm glad we are both sure and both on the same page as I'm sure it's difficult if you're not.

    I have a 9 week old baby girl and I doubt we'll have another. For many reasons. DH is 40 and I'm mid 30s. We feel that to have another one we'd need to do that in next couple of years and don't think we'll be up for it that soon.
    We had 2 years of fertility treatment to have our ivf baby. We only have 2 embryos left and I'm not going through another egg collection but at this stage don't think we'll use those embryos anyway.
    Pregnancy was hard on me with SPD and sacroiliac joint dysfunction and severe preeclampsia from 31 weeks. I got sick ended up in ICU had an emergency c-section and a prem baby. Lucky we didn't lose her and there's a good chance same things will happen again. I've just had surgery for a retained placenta so pregnancy really really didn't agree with me.
    We adore our little munchkin but this is really hard work. She's not the easiest baby so far. I don't think we could do it all again and we were always ok with having no kids or just 1. I see benefits and disadvantages of an only child. Time will tell but we're 90% sure this sweet little monkey has completed our family. I think 3 kids is a nice number but I do know there's no way emotionally, physically, financially I could do it.
