Are there any moms of one child who don't want more children?

My daughter is one, and I always thought I would want at least two children. But, I can hardly keep up with her and the thought of more is just completely unappealing. Anyone else NOT want more kids?

  • My son was intended to be an only child. My daughter was not planned. I would have been happy having one child.

  • My DS is almost 5 and I do not want any more. Sure, sometimes my hormones get the best of me and I think I do ( I LOVED being pregnant!) But I know it is not right for me or my family. My boy will be my one and only and I'm very happy with that!

  • It is this stage. They do get easier. This is why some people like to have their children 5 yrs apart, because toddlers drive them crazy.

  • My son will be 2 next month && I don't really plan on having anymore. I have always said I wanted 1, POSSIBLY 2 kids. I'm not 100% against having another one, but my SO is going to have to give me some pretty good reasons why we should have another && our financial situation will have to be excellent at the time in order to change my mind about it. I've always wanted a small family, but between my SO && I, we have 4 children, so a small family seems to be out of the question for me now.

  • I intend on getting sorted out so i dont ever have any more children. One is all i need/want.

    I grew up with a sibling. Its a horrible life. Also, this pregnancy has a;lmost killed me. It has been the worst time of my life. And i refuse to allow my body to make me think otherwise.

  • My son will be an only child. He is nearly 7 and our family feels complete. My husband got a vasectomy when our son was 1 year old.

  • I have 1 and I am pretty happy with just her. I have the mirena IUD and I am not planning on another child, and if I do it wont be for a long time. Maybe 10 years.
