How many kids do y'all have? Are you finished having babies? When did you know for sure when you were done?

I am 33 (34 in Feb), my DH is 38. We have 3 children (my DSS is 20, our DS is 12 and our DD is 6) Our oldest (my DSS) and his girlfriend have a baby, he is 6 months old. So we are grandparents! We usually only get to see him, when his parents want/need something...makes me sad :(

Anyway, everyone I work with has either just had a baby or is pregnant...and lots of people I know is having babies.  My husband would love to have another baby, I am really not sure if I want another one, but I am having a SEVERE case of baby fever! If we were to have another one, it would definetly be our last.

Would it be awkward for us to have another baby? I mean we are still young enough. lol

My DD and DS both say that they would like to have a baby brother or sister. I am not really sure how well my DD would actually be once a baby was in the picture 24/7! I know she would love it, but she is the baby and is almost 7! lol

I say go for it. I'm 25 only have in child, but were ttc at this point in time. I only want one more but dh wants 2 more not sure what will happen. You do what you feel comfortable doing, if you want another there is nothing wrong with that

I say go for it! Age gaps aren't so bad. My kids are 5 years apart. My best friend's kiddos are 7 years apart. Her daughter wasn't happy about a sibling at first. But she loves her little brother now.

No I don't think so. My oldest daughter is younger by 5 years from my son.

 You are only 33, it's not like you are 50 wanting a baby, so go for it. You may have a grandchild but that doesn't mean you shouldn't have another child if you want one. If you were 47 and your bio-children all in their 20's I'd say to re-think it but your children are 12 and 6, there's no reason to not have another child.

I had my first at 33 ;) take some time before you decide. Never get pregnant because of baby fever. It may pass and you may be glad you didn't act on it. I guess the major factors are financial and time. If you have the money and resources for another one it might be a good idea to really discuss it.

Well I'm 25 with a almost 6 year old and 4 year old. My dad has a 26 year old wife and a 4 year old and 3 month old sons. So I say go for it!
