When Did You Know Your Child Limit

When Did You Know Your Limits?

My magic number is three . . . I hope. Blessed with two beautiful, healthy children, I almost feel guilty wanting to add one more to our lil gang, but I always thought I wanted four. Having said that, after experiencing a total of 18 months of pregnancy, my body isn't too pumped for another 40 week adventure, much less 80. Sometime during my son's first few months of life, I decided I could do it one last time. Some women always knew how many children they wanted, while most waver on the subject for years. Mums like Michelle Duggar may never know their limit until biology gives them the natural answer. Others take matters into their own hands and attempt to predict their familial outcome with a lil help from good ol' science. When did you know your magic number?

We knew after our 4th that that was our magic number. It's worked out perfectly for us.

We always wanted five, but then had kids and realized our magic number is three. I'm so excited to meet this new baby.

I have an amazing 5 month old and I would be happy to start trying again right now but we will probably be a 1 child family b/c of $. my husband can not make enough to support us but if we have 2 kids then 2 day care payments will eat up 60% of my paycheck and make it pretty worthless for me to work. Incredibly frustrating.

I am currently having an incredibly difficult time with this. We just had our second in June (or first is 2) and my husband is content, but I don't think I am. I think I try to convince myself that I am, but I'm not. I bawled when I gave away my maternity clothes...I can't keep my composure when I put away the clothes that the baby has grown out of...I don't know, I don't think I'm done. I think three is my magic number. In talking with my friends/family, you know when you're done. You feel it. I don't feel it. Now I just need to convince my husband...
