This is my 2nd and partners 4th and definitely our last baby. I original wanted 3 together but he said 4 in total was enough for him and having to be pregnant and deal with a toddler has zapped all my energy. Finding it really difficult this time round and I agree with him we've reached our limit. I've not had any serious problems but not sure I could cope through another pregnancy! It does make me sad though and this time it is flying by. I have to remind myself this is the last time I will experience this and appreciate every minute! (Now I want to cry ha ha)

This pregnancy was a shock, being on bcp and nursing and still got pregnant. It's also our last! I will be having my tubes removed with this c-section!!
In a way I am sad about it because I love babies and having babies and feeling the baby move inside , but in a way I'm relieved because I'll never have to go through another pregnancy loss and we can move forward with our family adventures!!! I'm looking forward to the years to come!

This is our 2nd and last. I feel maybe a little bit sad, but not too sad. It was always the plan to have 2 and I'll be 37 when this baby is born, so though it will be bittersweet, I'll be ready to close up the babymaking shop and most on to the next phase in life. We have a 4 year old and life with her is pretty easy now, so I think we are both looking forward to the days when life with this baby is easier again too. Obviously a long way off and we aren't wishing the days away, but we can see the appeal of having the baby phase of life behind us. So yes, little bit sad, but I think we are ready. I plan to have my tubes tied eventually, but I'll probably give it a year so we can settle into life before I take that step.

This is potentially my first and last, but much remains in the air at this point. I'm not sad per se because I'm not overly fond of the pregnancy experience thus far. I don't know if DH will agree to a second at this point though, and I want two. (exactly two. Tubes tied after second without question.)

This baby will be our second and our last. DH and I feel very satisfied with our little pair. He'll be getting a vasectomy as soon as we have the 24 week scan and know that baby is healthy. We had our first quite young for our generation (I was 25 and he was 24) and would like to be done while we're still young, too.

My last baby is 8 months, and very happy with her being the last. Had my first baby when I was already pretty old - I turned 28 a week before he was born.

Looking forward to being a grandma one day!

I'm so relaxed with Emma and enjoying her being a baby much more than with my other two.

my husband got the snip when our second was 3 months old. I wanted 3 he wanted 2 and I had said ide. be okay with 2 but I think I will always wish we could have had one more but at the same time my body and mind i think has had enough so I will be content....babies always have a special place in my heart I'll always miss the baby and toddler phase!

I am not. I like the idea of a second awesome human child, but I am totally not ok with the whole birth thing and have entirely negative experience of having a baby. I'm just working through horrid morning sickness and telling myself I don't have to do it again

Basically I don't want a baby, I want to go straight into the toddler stage.
