  • We want two for sure, but we're not going to do anything drastic until we're sure we don't want a third. I'll go back on the pill and we'll see what happens.

  • I'm pregnant with my second and after this we are done. Me and my husband have always said we just wanted 2. We had a little girl almost 5 years ago and we are having a boy this time. Most people would be thrilled with a boy and a girl but we both wanted two girls so when we first found out we were having a boy my husband kiddingly said well I guess we will have to have a third try for another girl but that won't happen we are just having two.

  • We decided as soon as I found out I was pregnant with my second, that one of us was getting "fixed." Since I had a troubled pregnancy and ended up having to go c-section, I had my tubes tied at the same time. I was only 21 and the doctor was against it, saying I'd regret my decision. All my friends are having babies right now, and I still don't regret it (6 1/2 years later). Fortunately for us, we did end up with one girl and one boy. I have a friend who is preggo with girl number four right now. Yes, she's going to try again after this one is a year old.

  • I'm due any day now with my second. My children will be almost 18 months apart. One girl and a boy on the way...so, we're happy to be getting one of each.

  • We talked about it some more and since we have a boy and a girl we are very blessed and lucky to have one of each so we are done. I think its not that I want more I am gonna miss feeling a baby kick and all the good stuff but I do have trouble pregnancies, preeclampsia with the first and the second was all good till the very end when we found out we would have to have a repeat csection, but it was worth it all I would never trade it for anything. Thank you all for your input it was greatly appreciated.
