My family is complete, I still get broody though and sad knowing we won't have another. I thought it would be nice for people to write the positives of being a complete family. Help us broody mummy's put it into perspective!
I will start,
Being able to focus on my career without thinking when will I be back on maternity leave etc.
I want to say getting more sleep but that hasn't happened yet!
For me (and I'm not 100% sure that I feel my family is complete yet, but my husband is 100% sure, so that's probably it), I feel that there are a lot positives for me in having a complete family:
*I no longer have to endure all of the pokey blood draws and other prenatal appointments...I'm needle-phobic, and this was torturous for me.
*I no longer have to worry about miscarriage and pregnancy loss...after suffering from miscarriages and anxiety during pregnancy, I feel fortunate that I won't have to put myself through this again.
*I don't have to worry that something is wrong with the baby, due to my age...I'm now 37, and I was of "advanced maternal age" with both of my children, which meant a lot of extra monitoring, genetics testing, etc. The two children I've been blessed with are fine thus far, and I know I'd stress out during a third pregnancy.
*Financially, we're doing pretty well, and a third baby would definitely impede that.
*We're finally sleeping again! Yay!!!!!
*We finally have a good routine and schedule going as a family.
I'd want another home birth, but because I technically heamoragged (trouble delivering my placenta) with ds3 I'd have to fight for it which I'm just awful at doing so would be stuck in hospital again..
