We've said were done after the last three But we know there's at least one more out there for us, just not sure if baby will come through us or adoption. For now the plan is for me to get an IUD (copper, the mirena experience wasn't pleasnt) and then decide in a few yrs if we are indeed done.
Mommyin04060809..... CONGRATS! I didn't know you were expecting!!! Super happy for you, I know it's been a journey for you. Drop in on the Feb. '08 board and update the ladies there!
I posted a thread on this but we are prolly done. :-/ I am just hoping I find peace with this.

This will be our last baby (obviously, from the posting above lol). Between the two of us this will be our sixth child (we're a blended family) and that's enough for us! It kind of makes me sad knowing that I'll never be pregnant again, but I think 4 pregnancies is enough on my body lol!

I am struggling with this issue right now. We had said we were done before #6 was born. However, I have had a pretty strong feeling since he was born that there is another one. Dh even had that feeling just a short time ago. We are financially stable enough that having another isn't concern, but I am having a hard time wrapping my head around the whole idea of being pregnant again and having SEVEN kids. I feel like my life is already crazy as it is. One day I am all for having another and then the next I am so overwhelmed with what I have now that I can't even imagine another one. If we do decide to have another I think we will probably end up TTC soon so that we can be done sooner rather than later.

I don't know. lol. I do know dh is more ready to be done than I am. And I don't think I am ready for another really soon, if at all. 4 kids is keeping us so busy, and twin toddlers are not a whole lot less work than twin infants, and 3 in diapers is too much for me. But I don't feel completely done either. But I have had 2 miscarriages and I don't know if I can do that again mentally. And ttc is not easy for us either, and though I love my twins, I do not want twins again, so no clomid, either naturally or no baby (that is what I say now, if I really want another I may change my mind when it is not happening lol). And the twins and my 6yr old ds were very traumatic pregnancies. DS I had placenta previa and hemoraged every few weeks, very very scary, esp for dh. And I did 6wks of bedrest, 1 in the hosp to have him at 36wks. I did 8wks of bedrest with the twins, 4 in the hospital and had them at 36wks. I think that has been scarring to dh and my older kids, so I have to take that into consideration when deciding to have more. I guess we shall see.

We'd like one more. Probably through adoption, although we are NTNP right now.
