Quoting M♥B:" Well, i'm not sure but I know that i'm done for a long time and maybe even forever. DH wants a boy but I don't really want 3 kids."
Quoting Angie Mother of Boys:" He's done. I want one more. But IDK what the future holds. Maybe fostering? "
Quoting lex n bella's mama:" I want one more. Just not for a few years. SO is 35, I just turned 24 last week, so that plays a huge ... [snip!] ... one in June. Ideally though (and he agrees) we would like one more together. We will see how I feel when this one is born haha"
Quoting Chim Richalds:" We have discussed adopting in the future. It's not that I don't want more babies, it's that I don't ... [snip!] ... I don't want more pregnancies, I have pretty bad depression sometimes and pregnancy makes it SO bad I'm an ineffective mom."See, I want more pregnancies and more babies. But, my kids have risk for genetic problems that we didn't know were genetic until my second one was one and then we got pregnant again. If the risk wasn't so damn high I think he'd be on board with another. And. I feel like for me to WANT one so bad and risk another child having developmental problems is so frigging selfish. The thing that makes me have that inkling of maybe one more is that if we had a girl the risk would be so very low- it's not really a risk. If that makes sense. But, seeing how we already have 3 boys, with my luck we'd end up with another. So I'm so damn close to just saying go get a vasectomy. but it's so permanent. I wish it were an easy decision.

Quoting Chim Richalds:" Ya, age would play a big factor. I always thought I'd be done at 30. But I'm 25 and ready, and happy. ... [snip!] ... independent for self care. 15 & 17 and I'll be able to go on spontaneous dates again and that just sounds so refreshing."
