I would love a 4th but right now it's not financially viable, so we have agreed no more I do feel sad as pregnancy, birth and raising them is such a precious thing to be given but as previous poster said they do grow up and do cost money! Just hope my sister has one soon
Even tho i hated being pregnant in a funny way im missing being pregnant, but i think thats cos i know my last baby was my last after 4 boys and one mmc i was blessed with a girl so my family is complete, but in the back of my mind a little voice says ' Just one more' really need to gag that little voice
this may sound daft but i only feel sad about not having another when i scroll passed the pregnancy forums lol!! just so many lovely memories from those places, the waiting, wondering, worrying and excitement. . . .
otherwise i just feel at peace, i have 3 beautiful children and after 2 losses, the pregnancy from hell and almost dying during labour i do feel blessed to have got to do all this 1 last time. my youngest is 9 months old and now i'm just looking forward to bringing them up and getting on with the rest of my life :-)
My LO is my first and last and I am over the moon because I've got all I ever wanted. I've wanted a baby of my own since other people at school started dropping out and having babies (16 years ago lol) but promised myself I'd get a degree, a proper job, a house of my own and of course a wonderful loving man first. I've spent many many years being jealous of other people with children and finally the right time came and I have my own and I'm proud of myself for waiting lol. Anyway I am an only child and loved it, OH has a sister and they get on brilliantly so he was hoping I'd back down and have another, right until we went through it and bless him he said he couldn't bare to go through it all again. He said he hated seeing me upset and in pain and we had quite a few complications and ended up taking LO back into hospital trying to put it all to the back of my mind but it was a horrid time so I am happy and grateful for everything I've got and wouldn't ask for anything else...except maybe a wedding hahaha
I feel differently as I had a stillborn baby and I don't ever think that I will feel "done" having children as one of my babies isn't with me and never will be but no matter how many other children I have he won't be here so I guess its a no win situation!
3 full term pregnancies and only two children with me.....
From a financial pov dh thinks no more children! For me I would love another baby, but don't think I could endure another PAL I was literally a little bit mental. So for my sanity glad I would end up locked up if I had to go through the what ifs again whilst I was pg!.....
I am 100% heartbroken over the thought of never being pregnant or having a new baby again. I want more kids...well 1 more, but my labor was hell with Airy and we both almost didn't make it so the Dr's said that I should get my tubes tied and I am crushed. At first I was okay and felt done but when it was taken from me it made me really sad. My other 4 kids are all older and knowing that Airy is going to spend most of her life as a only child really hurts me. I'm sure that I will get over it (I hope) but I love being a mommy and having new babies. If only I could find a OB that would just give me a c section then I could have one more. But some would say that 5 kids is enough and that I should be happy that I have them and I am, I am so in love with my kids!!!
