  • I had to be done, I had a horrific thing happen when I had my son and do not want to die yet.

  • When we were dating we talked about 2-3 kids.
    We thought if we get one of each we will stop there, if we have 2 of the same gender we will try once more.

    So 3 was always our stopping point. With our ages and my husbands physical issues we knew we didnt want more than that.

    When I was pregnant with #2 I thought about stopping there(even tho it was the same gender as #1) but realized I felt in my heart and soul that our family wouldnt be complete until we had #3. When I talked to DH he said it was up to me whether we had a 3rd or not. He left it in my control. I knew we needed a third so we had a third.

    I just feel like our family is complete. I cant really explain it much better other than deep in my heart and soul I know it.

  • we had agreed on 2. our first 2 were premature with serious medical issues. our second passed shortly after birth. we decided to have 1 more, and if this one had any issues it would be our last.our son was born a week late and perfectly healthy, so we will be having one more, probably not for another 3-4 years tho.

  • I didn't really have to think much about it...I knew I only wanted two. Two girls, to be exact! And that's what I got! : )
