Before and after our 1st we knew we wanted more, atleast 3. After delivering dd2 I didn't feel done. Even a few weeks ago I was clucky to try for another and didn't feel complete.
All of a sudden I feel complete with our two girls. The thought of never being pregnant again and having my own newborn doesn't bother me.
Has anyone else felt this way? Did you get clucky again? Did you regret not going for more?
I think part of it is the reality of being a family of 5 or more. Bigger car, limited travel options and the girls get on really well I don't want to mix it up

I've just had my second DD I have a 3yo and a 5 week old. I'm pretty certain we are done for the same reasons you mentioned.
I am only 25 though so may change my mind in 5 years.

Hi ladies. I've just joined the bub hub and the first post I see is this one. It literally describes exactly how I'm feeling. I have 2 girls who will be 6 and 3 in a couple of weeks. My husband wants anger baby, not to get a boy, just really wants another. The thing is, I am settled with our girls, they get in amazingly, I work full time juggling school and nursery drop offs and pick ups and running my eldest to rainbows, cheerleading and swimming. Although I am broody and loved being pregnant I'm just not sure I want to extend out family. I had to come off my pill for several reasons but I am avoiding certain times of the month with my his and because I'm not sure whether I want to get pregnant yet and I do not want any negative feelings if/when I do.

I always imagined I'd have two children, possibly three.
I had DS, who is now 5, and I still haven't had that urge to have another! I have been waiting, thinking it would hit me one day, but it just hasn't. There are also a number of reasons I am reluctant to put my body through pregnancy again.
I am 36 now, and my clock is ticking. If I truly want another I will go for it, but I just can't see it happening. My DH is also content with just DS, though we occasionally check in with each other to make sure we're still both on the same page.
