If I could afford to be a SAHM I know I would want at least one more... maybe two. We have six children total now, with DH's two boys that live with their mother in Idaho, and he's done. Technically if DH had had it his way, we would have been done after our son Maximus. I think that he's always felt super guilty about the way that we got together and what it did to our kids that we each had with our first spouses (again, he had two kids with her and I had a son with my ex) that he didn't want to have any more children. I begged him with our DD, because I knew that it would be a girl if he would just agree for us to try one more time, so he gave in for me (thank God it was a girl lol). Obviously this last pregnancy was a HUGE "whoops"... I actually didn't tell him that I was pregnant for a while for fear of him being that upset about it. He actually took it better than I thought, and better than I did. I'm so in love with my little man though, and am actually glad that it was another boy! He's definitely cut me off though, and is going to schedule his appt for the vasectomy. Until he musters up the courage for that, though, I'm on the mini pill. I am incredibly sad that I won't be having anymore children though. At 29 years old, even though I've given birth to four children already, it feels way too young to throw in the towel.

I do want another one but I don't want to be pregnant or give birth again....and buy a bigger car/house. So I guess we are done

I am pretty sure Ryan is it for us. That could be the last 4 weeks of struggling talking but financially it would be so hard for us to have another. If we did it would be years down the road but I really don't see it happening. Pregnancy was hard on me this time around and his birth was as well. I always thought I wanted 3 kids but I think I am happy with 2.
I have no idea if we will have more or not. I keep saying things like "When we have another baby...." but I really can't envision us with another one. Maybe because I am still feeling overwhelmed with the first one. I'm thinking that when we do have baby #2, it will be a total surprise.
Ed just got his vasectomy last thursday & neither of us can imagine another one. We weren't even planning on having a child together, but it happened & we are happy it did. Now we have 4 total in the house & that's more than enough. =)

Nightmare! Haha. I already sent most of my DS's baby and toddler clothes off to a friend of mine who just had a baby boy. AND, my husband already had his vasectomy so unless some miracle happens, we are totally done. I'm good with it. Two is enough! I am overwhelmed as it is! I already miss the newborn stage and will be sad when my baby is grown, but I look forward to all the things to come!
When DH and I are sure we're done he'll get a V I think. A couple years ago 3 guys he works with all got one within a few months of each other and it was no big deal for any of them so DH is comfortable with it when we're ready, thankfully! I'm just not totally there yet......I wish I could blink right to having a 1 year old LOL Skip pregnancy, delivery, newborn.....
