of having any more children? when, how many?
(it's too quiet on this board! LOL)
I would like at least 1 more, but not ANY time soon. Having 2 kids on 19 months sent us into a whirlwind and we're still adjusting and finding a balance. Also, we need to get to a better place financially, which includes moving to a bigger place, having a savings account, not to mention a bigger car, lol. So, we're not ready to call it quits yet, but we're not ready for another any time soon!

I have been thinking about this for a bit. I have my Essure procedure scheduled for the 1st of December. Both Dh and I agree no more children, but there is a part of me that is having a tough time with this.

I'm thinking any day now. LOL
The official due date is December 13th, but I'm hoping she'll arrive well before Christmas.
It's so much harder being pregnant and taking care of a 2 year old at the same time.
After this, maybe we'll be done, but it's one of those decisions you shouldn't make until you give it a few years. We've always said 2 maybe 3 kids.

I'm ready - DH has in his head to wait to TTC until 2012. I'm trying to convince him to start a few weeks early.... my cycles are so long... and don't really want to have a baby around Christmas... so it'd be perfect to get pg with this cycle and be due in Sept.
I think we'll only end up havng 2. But it's hard to say. Guess you don't really know how you'll feel until you get there.

I'm hoping that the surgery I had on the 17th will make it finally happen for us. We're hoping for a 2012 baby at this point... but we were also hoping for a 2011 baby, and in four more months we'll have to start hoping for a 2013 baby. So who knows. We just know we want more, and hopefully sooner rather than later.
We definitely don't want to stop at 2, either, btw. We have always wanted a 'big' family, somewhere between 3 and 5 kids. The dreams of 5 children have been sort of dashed by our fertility struggles, but 3 or 4 is still really do-able. And if baby #2 is a girl and #3 is a boy, I really, really want a fourth if only because I don't want people to think we only had three children so we could get a boy. I mean, I know lots of people plan their families that way, but that's never been our plan and while I know we would know it regardless, I would like for the rest of the world not to be able to assume.
Silly reasoning, right? But regardless of how it happens, we are definitely wishing for more!

Realized I didn't answer my own question!
We want more, just not sure when. I'm not getting any younger, so it will probably be sooner rather than later. I do feel like my hands are full, but if we have a 3rd I'd stop working full-time and I think it be less stressful, even if it was crazier!
Unsure here. We have two and that was a definite all done, no more. But I never felt 'done' and DH was always happy to have more but said no because of concerns about money. Financial reasons were my main reason for saying no, as well as concerns about work, relationship, size of house, etc. It is no longer a definite no, but not a definite yes either.
Forgive me...I almost never get one here anymore, but lately I have been missing PG.org. I came here and introduced myself when the boards merged, but not since then. Sorry!
As for the question...I dont know. Jess and I are content with the 2 we have, but we have talked about having more since Jax was born. It is just the same things, I hate being pregnant, with the back urgeries I have had, it really isnt the smartest choice, financial concerns...so on and so on. But I do get baby fever when around infants and I know Jess does a little too. I guess if it ever does happen, it would be a shock, but most likely not something that will ever be planned.
