  • i have 4 boys ages 6, 4f 1/2, 2 1/2 and 11 months old and i had my tubes tied after my 4th baby. i am still sad i had made that decision. My husband was the one that didnt want anymore not me, but i guess it would not be a good idea to have more without He didnt want any more after 3 kids, but i became pregnant with and IUD in. If we do decide to have one more we want to adopt a baby girl with Down Syndrome. We have one son who was born with Down Syndrome and i have a special place in my heart for them.

  • OMG how sweet!!!!! My daughter whom is 17 has always told me she wanted a baby with down syndrome, and I always told her that is something you do not wish for. She has the biggest heart I swear and she would and will make the perfect mother to her child with or without it..............And I agree you are a very special person

  • At the time, when my third child was born, my DH didn't want any more children. We talked about it for over a year and he still didn't want another one so he had a vasectomy. A few years ago I wish we had gone for the 4th child, although now I am glad we didn't. Our 3rd child got very sick this past summer and it has been a difficult time since then.

     I have thought that maybe we would adopt, although I am not sure I could get DH to got for that either, so we I am happy with the 3 children I do have.

  • I want 1 more baby and I want to get pregnant in April or May. It wont happen for 2 reasons.
    1. It took us 2 years TTC before we had our son. During delivery they had to remove a part of my ovary. If it took 2 years with 2 working ovaries....I dont know what will happen with only one whole one :(
    2. DH says no. He is happy with just 1.
