    Will you aim to have more children after this one? When?

    Yes! We want at least 4, but aren't really putting a 'cap' on the #. We looooove kids and want a big family. The plan is that I'm not going back on birth control after this one. I won't be displeased to have another child really close. We wanted this one to be close to DS, and I never went back on birth control after his birth, but it just didn't happen. However, DH and I are both a bit healthier now than we were back then, so hopefully that will make a difference and we'll conceive quickly, rather than 4 yrs down the road.

    Both DH and I come from families with 2 kids so it seems natural to have 2 but I don't know if we can a) afford another child, and b) cope given DH's condition.

    Maybe if we chose a bigger age gap, like 4-5 years...

    Nope. 4 is more than enough for me. I do like my age gap between Trinity and Taylor almost 2 years. Then between Taylor and Sydney is 18 months and between Sydney and this one will be 3.5 years.

    Well, it's very possible this is our last (this is baby #2 for us). My husband is set on two (he is one of two) and he's just so practical when it comes to finances, future college expenses, etc. I would possibly be open to having a third down the road, but at the moment I don't want to think about another pregnancy (still feeling scarred from almost 4 months of bad MS/all day sickness).

    Nope, I'm done. I've always wanted two kids (boy/boy or boy/girl) and now I will have exactly what I wanted (boy/girl). Although I love the *idea* of having a big family, I'll be very happy with my two little kidlets.

    I'm not sure. DH talks about adding more, and part of me wants to. But getting pregnant this time was so difficult, and this has not been the easiest pregnancy physically. I can only imagine going through this with TWO little ones!! Plus there is always the financial and time restraints. I came from a family with 4 kids and I feel we all got shafted. Some of that is because my parents kinda stink at being parents. I want at least the two I have be super happy with us. We've talked about fostering or adopting. Maybe one day we will go that route.
