I felt done when I was pregnant with DS3, I hate being pregnant! Even while in labour I was so thankful to never do it again. When he was a few days old I felt the baby truck hit me, hard. I felt a complete turn around in my feelings. I didn't, and don't feel done. I would love one more little person in our family. I feel like someone is missing. I have absolutely no desire to be pregnant again, but if DF ever changes his mind (he is adamant NO) I'm there in a heartbeat. It is the only thing in our lives we can't agree on

I looked around my hospital room the afternoon after DD1&2 were born and just thought 'Yup, that's it.' And I felt complete.
Oddly enough we'd agreed to two, but within a week of finding out I was pregnant again, I remember hoping that baby #3 came along easier than #2 had. So I guess 3 was always going to be my magic number.

I was sure after number four but then I fell preg and that turned out to be a blighted ovum and we were so disappointed that we went for number five. I still wasn't sure even after number five was born but as the months went by and remembered how hard it is to have a baby/toddler I have since decided I'm over the baby years and can't wait to not have to change nappies make bottles and all that lol

I was sure after 3. Then ds2 decided to complete the family making it 4. I am definitely done. I knew even before he was born that was it. I am very done.

I wish I knew the answer to your question OP, unfortunately for me I just don't feel "done". We have 3, we had always talked about having 4, it was our number (it has been my number since I was about 12-13) so I have always prepared myself for 4 babies. When hubby and I met I told him I wanted 4 and he was quite happy with that. We had a hard time conceiving DS1 (our 3rd) and during his pregnancy we thought that was it, but once he was born it has been a constant battle since then of a fight between my heart and my mind. Some days I think i'm crazy for even considering another but then other days I feel like i'm 1 short, feel like there is a person missing at the dinner table and when my friends talk about another one I feel sad at the thought of not experiencing that one last time. I know I could only do 1 more (I have to have C-sections) and I know hubby has taken a lot of convincing to go for a 4th so we know it's our limit. I'm not a career person, infact even when the kids are all in full-time school i'm not somebody who can work 5 days a week. So being mum is sort of my only real dream in life. I think if you're thinking about it, it will always be there. Whether you choose to act on it or not, if you don't I think it will always play on your mind. However can't tell you what the feeling is when you do go again because I haven't got to that part... yet.
