  • I always thought I wanted more, but really hated being pregnant, hated the sleepless nights, and poo diapers I gagged on! Then again I had her when I was 21, and for me that was waaaaaaaay too young! I wanted 5 when we got married, then wanted only one, blessed with a little boy, and we're DONE!!!!!!!

  • I had a horrible high risk pregnancy, bedrest, weekly injections, weekly sonograms and was swollen like the Michelin Man . . . lol. Then I had a HORRIBLE 23 hour (epidural didnt take) labor followed by an emergency c-section. My incision wouldn't heal, kept popping open in the center . . it even stank even though I cleaned it constantly. I didn't fully heal until 6 weeks pp. My incision still hurts. Then my dd would not sleep unless I was holding her, so I barely got any sleep until I stopped breastfeeding. I had to, I was super anemic from the c-section and I had no appetite and barely could eat, MAJOR gastrointestinal problems . . but despite all that, I still want to give my husband a boy. No more than two though, not in this economy. I want my baby to have everything and unless you're rich, more than two will definitely be difficult.

  • Nope, my first is 5 1/2 mos and I still want more. I didn't enjoy being pregnant, but the being a mom a love, and wish that it will bring me as much joy in the future as I have already received.

  • after i had my son, i had decided that one was enough. but when i met my fiance, though i still only wanted to have one child i felt bad becuz he's an only child. so i wanted to give him one of his own. so now i have two and i'm totally done. but i love both my kids and i am happy with my two. my second pregnancy was worse than the first, so that sucked....
