    I guess that's where my head is at when I don't feel "done". I look at my two kids and almost feel like someone is waiting in the wings. I don't know if it's just because I'm 1 of 3, so my brain automatically goes to 3, but even when I'm feeling spread thin I don't feel like this is "it". I don't look at photos of all 4 of us and go "Yup, this is our family". In fact I think more of the "We're growing..." But in saying all of that, if DH definitely feels done then I guess we'll be done. I'm still happy.
    I also have "survivor guilt" in a way. I am surrounded by female friends who are struggling to have their second or even their first. So I feel a bit selfish or indulgent dreaming of a third.
