We always planned to have 4 kids close together in age and be done having kids by the time DH turned 30 and everything went according to plan. We have our perfect family. 2 boys 2 girls in 5 years. Hubby just turn 30 this fall.
BUT, now I'm thinking I might want another one...
And here is the reason, which is kind of crazy. I feel like with my fourth I finally did it all right. My first 3 births were great, they really were. I have no complaints at all. But, they pale in comparison to my 4th. Being at home was the best decision I could have made and I really regret not having my others at home. I'm not dwelling on it, obviously I can change anything, and like I said, they were good birth, but..... What if we had one more???
I feel like I finally did it *right* and then am quitting. :confused:
5 kids would be craziness. Especially because they are all so young. And I would want another close in age again, not to be the odd one out, way younger than the others.
I really, really enjoy being pregnant and have been blessed with healthy, easy pregnancies and births. My midwife jokes that I've got the best pelvis she has ever seen... lol... So many reasons to do it again, and so many reason to be content with what I've got.
Has anyone else felt this way? What did you do? Did the urge fade with time?
