More babies after this one?

Ok so I know it's really early to be thinking about this. It seems we are all on our second or more baby so I'm curious how many of us are planning more after this one. We have always planned for 3 so we will be trying for one more after this one. We'll probably aim for a 2-3 year spacing.

I think this one actually might be our last. Not 100% sure, but I think we will be complete as a family of 8! Smile

Yep, DH is claiming he wants several more, but I plan on shooting that down, hopefully just one more after this one.

If this one is a boy then we are done. If it is a girl then maybe one more in 2-3 years.

Right now I'm feeling like this is the last one. I guess time will tell!

However many God gives us, we are open to more, but ok with less. We might adopt.

Nope, we are done after this one. In fact within minutes of telling DH I was pregnant he said "no more!!" Lol :rolleyes:

I'm pretty sure we'll be done with this one. Although, that's what I said last time. Smile Never in a million years did I dream of having 4 kids, but it just feels so right for us.

We have always talked about 2-3, if this one ends up being a boy, we will probably go for at least one more. Though we may go for 3 anyway.

not sure! We might have #4 or we might not. DH is saying 3 is enough, I'm not so sure. I wanted 4 all along, but I am wondering if I really might be done with 3. I'm feeling older, I hate pregnancy, and just wondering if I'm ready to move on to the raising kids stage instead of the baby stage? Only time will tell! If we have #4 we will space them closely again, so by the time the baby turns 2 I will have made a decision.

this one will probably be my last i've always only wanted 2 DH wants 3 but i honestly think we can only afford 2 so im sticking with that, if i get a Csection i probably will think about tieing my tubes

I am pregnant with number 2 (and maybe 3 we will see the 8th) and we will be wanting at least 4 and I want 7. As many as god gives us i feel. He wouldn't put more on us than we can handle I feel. One of my husbands uncles said we should try to outdo his grandma (9) so we said why not cheaper by the dozen. only time will tell.

is there a reason you are thinking 2 on this go? Twins are in my family and DS keeps saying he wants a brother AND a sister.. BOTH as he puts it....

That is funny! My kids have said the same thing in the past when we have talked about the possibility of having a new baby. They want one of each so they can both have one!

OMG! My son is saying the same exact thing! DD says she wants a sister, but DS says a brother and sister! I have this weird feeling it could be twins but no reason for thinking so! Only family history is that DH is a twin so it's very doubtful, but who knows!

Twins run on both sides of our family. The doc thinks with the numbers almost tripling in 48 hrs it could be, and i wouldn't be as far along as we think also then. Also with the amount of m/s I have. We will see on the 8th. Tho i cant imagine how ill be if it is two, because of my late pregnancy with my first.

We are 100% done after this baby. We were already on the fence about trying for a third or not for quite a while but our family just didn't seem "complete" yet. As long as everything goes okay with this LO, our kids will all be 2 years apart and three kids in 4 years is going to be handful enough. Wink
