  • Me personally? I knew when I shouldn't when my female parts were not functioning right and were causing me alot of pain which ended up me having a hysterectomy.

  • For me it was the whole thing. I DID NOT want to be pregnant, have a newborn, change a million diapers, BUY diapers, be sleep deprived, teach walking, teach talking, potty training. ALL of it, I just DO NOT want to do all over again.

    I have a boy and girl. I'm content with my two.

  • For me personally, it was after my 3rd c-section. I don't want to put my body through that anymore. It starts getting really risky the more surgeries you have. I love kids, but I'd also like to be here to raise the ones I have.

  • Health reasons

  • When the women on CM say you have too many and you can't give them all the attention they deserve!! :) Just kidding. If your fiancee i saying no, then what can you do? I would stop if I had health problems and that does include MENTAL health. We have 5 and as soon as my nephew starts school my life will be much LESS stressful! I babysit him 60 hours a week!

  • lol well now my fiance is saying that we can have another one so i dont know. but my brother in law and my 5 month old nephew recently moved in with us so I have 6 kids all the time plus being pregnant, kind of a wake up call. i love my kids and my nephew but im not sure i could handle another baby. or at least within the next 5 years!
