  • I used to want 4 kids but after THIS I dont think so. Not only was the giving birth hell but just the whole taking care of a baby thing is sooooooooo hectic. MAYBE eventually I'll have another...but how bout in 18 years when I already have one out of the house. lol.

  • I got the one awesome little boy that I wanted. Sometimes I think I'd like another baby, but I don't wanna be pregnant again. And as easy as it was for me, I don't wanna go through labor again. I think I'll just get a dog or something.

  • After my son was born he was hospitalized several times and cried for 5 months straight. I said several times during that time in our lives I was done having babies. But now that things have settled own and I am really starting to enjoy being a mother I am pretty sure I'll have one more, but that is one less than the 3 I had originally planned on

  • I said that many times. I had a very difficult pregnancy but the absolute joy and unconditional love you feel for your child I would make any kind of sacrifice I have to so I can experience that love again

  • I felt the same way. When I was pregnant w/ my son I said no way, never again. I was just miseralbe being pregnant w/ him. Then once he was born and we went thru him being colic, I said it again, NO MORE!! lol. Here I am pregnant w/ #2 which was planned. This pregnancy isn't as bad as the first, and seems to be going alot faster. Once your first gets a little older, and things aren't as crazy you may change your mind and want to have another. I'm glad my son is 4 1/2 and not younger, I don't think I could handle being pregnant and chasing him all over. I'm already worn out enouch as it is.

  • This is my first pregnancy and I am not sure I want another one. I always said only 1. I love him so much and I consider him my miracle baby, but its been so hard and uncomfortable carrying him. My husband wants a girl but I just dunno if I can do this again!
