There's a very real chance that this little one is our last. I always saw myself having 4 but DH always wanted just 2 and it looks like he is going to get his way - unless there is an oopsie in our future. At the moment I alternate between being absolutely fine with stopping at 2 and having a longing for at least 3. It does make me sad to think I may never experience pregnancy again and that this little boy will be the last baby I have. We went through a lot to get DS1 here (several first tri losses) and whilst this pregnancy has been pretty good going neither of us wants to go through the anxiety again. Then there is just the logistics of having more than two!

Anyway, right now I am treating this as my last pregnancy and trying to enjoy it as much as I can. Loving the bump and the wriggles. I'll be lucky to have my two boys.

This is my second and last pregnancy and Im not at all devastated about that tbh. I get really really bad pelvic, leg and back problems which causes incredible amounts of pain, so weve decided to call it a day after this baby. Im even opting for sterilisation.
I know in a few years Ill feel differently - when DD hit 2, I really wanted another so can imagine I will feel the same when DD2 gets to that age

100% our last as husband is getting a vasectomy. This one was a surprise. I'm so glad I'll never have to be pregnant again but it's a huge chapter in life to say goodbye too. So it's bittersweet.

I'm on my second and I will be finished after this one.
24 years old with a six year old little man and this little lady due in August. Pregnancy and me do not go well together, plus I think having two is just the right amount financially, attention wise and I can have a three bedroom without the kids needing to share
Plus I'm a single mum once again

Im on my last hopefully gonna get my tube cut or at least clamped but because off my age we have to put a case as to why its in our favour not the fact that we i have 3 boys and a girl on a way but because we have a collective family of 5 boys and a girl so where on 6 and thats a more then enough kids before this pregnancy i was dead certain on not having anymore went two years on the injection and it failed and we were in a situation we are christians and were stuck in two minds but decided to keep but karma struck and we sadly miscarried at 12 week but at that point we knew we wanted another one so planned on having just one more so happened she is our first and only daughter and it will complete the family can now consontraight on life my carer and everything after this one as was middle of rebuilding my carer in the two years so been pushed back but i wouldnt have it any other way now xx

2nd and last. From a financial and over population stand point, I only wanted 1. But once DS turned 4, I wanted another. Plus my sister is my staple and couldn't imagine letting DS go through life without a sibling to have that bond with.

I would request getting my tubes tied but I highly doubt they will allow me (26) to have it done without a medical reason.

I'm the same lovely I would love to get my tubes tied but when I mentioned it to the midwife she basically laughed in my face and said they wouldn't dream of it as I'm only 24

I'm surprised your drs are giving you issues. I understand you're in your 20's, but it's your decision. I'd think after having 2 kids they'd be understanding and willing to listen.

Hi all! We have two boys and have been ttc what will most likely be our final baby for 3 years. Hoping for a girl, but would still enjoy being a boy mom =)

My friends have told me you just "know" when you're done having kids, and I don't feel that way yet! I feel like there is more yet to come- so praying it happens soon! It's so weird to think this chapter of our lives will be over soon.

This is also our last. We've already discussed with my OB to tie my tubes. I'm honestly not sure how I feel but oh goodness, things are pretty much expensive in South Africa, from school to everything. I don't think we can afford more than 3 kids. We expecting our third boy
