Wednesday QOTD

Do you think this will be your last LO? How many LOs would you like?

I think so...but I could revisit this topic when all 3 of my boys are in school. For right now, we're done.

We could possibly be done. This is the first pregnancy that I have actually felt like could possibly be it. With the other ones I was sure that I wasn't done. This time I'm not sure.

In my heart I don't feel done. However, that feeling could change once lo is here.

This is me exactly. My first two pregnancies were so easy, I loved being pregnant. I didn't even get how people could dislike it, I mean how could you not love growing your child and feeling them every second! Well now I understand! I feel like my body is telling me this should be it. So it probably will be.

Additionally, I have always wanted 4, but DH was happy with 2 so this one is our compromise :). Plus if we had a 4th it would have to be right after this one. I can't have 3 close together and then one off by himself. And I want to get back to work once my kids are all in school, so if I had another that would put that off by another few years.

Similar story as Karen, I always wanted 4 DH wanted 2 so we compromised on 3. However I still am holding out for number 4. Although I don't want to be doing this in my 40's not that I am dissing older Mom's but it is not for me. Plus there is already a 10 year age gap between my eldest and this one. So I think I just need to come to grips with the fact that this is it lol

this is it for us unless we have a surprise later or something. I would be ok with it, but we're not really plannnig on it. I HATE being pregnant. It's 2:50 and I'm up wide awake with heartburn. BOOOOOO!

I'm not sure yet. DH and I both want(ed?) 3, but this baby is already straining us financially and he's not even here yet! We will see if we decide to stop here or go on. I do feel like this could be it.. but, again, we will see.

I was done being pregnant before this one came along, I am definitely done being pregnant after.
that said I have always wanted to foster and adopt if it seemed right. Who knows how many LOs I may have or keep in the future, but I don't ever want to be pregnant again.

I think we will have more. I would think only one more but you never know. It really depends on how we do with the first.

If we were rich we'd definitely keep going!! lol DH says we're done after this, but I've always wanted 3. He keeps joking he's gonna get the big snip, but I know he won't. I bet we'll end up with 1 more!

This is exactly how our situation is and how I feel.

I'm with Karen too.

We had kind of planned on 4 kids with the 2 oldest then have another 2 when the youngest was 3 or 4. Then we had kind of decided we were okay with just the 2 we had...

I am NOT a fan of being pregnant, and we're about 90% sure we're done after this one. We'll probably wait 2 or 3 years to be certain and then DH will get snipped.

I'm happy with two. Dh only wanted one and she was s huge shock and surprise to both of us. So unless something extraordinary happens, were done.

DH & I are pretty sure we are done. I'm so miserable while I'm pg & I feel like I lose a year of my life because of M/S & complications. I'm not giving any clothes or stuff away just yet... certainly don't want to jinx myself. Wink

Same here. DH and I would like at least one more LO. But I've always wanted to adopt as well. So we'll see.

Yepper. 3 is my lucky number and I think it will be just perfect for us! I am already 38 so I dont want to be having another baby or pg at 40 yrs old! Ours are also so close together so I cant imagine having another one this close in age, our house is going to be chaotic enough!

No I don't think it will be my last...I think 3 is ideal, however, we are not ruling out a 4th (I know...it's a lot). I love kids and have always imagined having a big family. I grew up with 3 younger siblings and have 7 aunts and uncles on both sides of the family and it was always so fun growing up...I want my kids to grow up with a big family as well.
