We were talking about more kids..... i am 42, our oldest is 25 and our youngest is 12 --- well i wasn't going to deny my husband more since i was fine either way -- i love babies and love being a mom.

But just got the call.......... in his small soft almost I am sorry voice..... I think we should enjoy our life now.... our baby days are about grand kids now... i don't want to try.... are you mad?  I almost laughed -- I think from the relief -- i had been reading on issues over 40 babies can have last night......  not that those odds would stop me -- just weighed heavy on my mind and heart.  

So back on track - no more babies --- and back on the lets get a bigger house mode!  Yippee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  

life is never dull!  LOL

It's a tough decision to make.  I'm glad you're at peace with it.

I'm excited that Dh is almost 40. I'm 25 and am done having babies. I'm glad there's another mom out there who can admit that there's nothing wrong with not wanting to be like the Duggars lol. Dh and I are both content with our 2 and foster parenting :-).

I'm glad you all agreed!

In all honesty, I'm glad that's the choice u made. Another baby sounds great, but with kids that old it's tough. I'm 25. My baby sister is 2! I honestly don't know her or feel related to her. :( my mom has such a hard time now. It's difficult all around. I have a 5yo and a 5mo. So it's weird having a sibling so young when my kid is older!
I'm glad ur at peace with it though. Dh and I keep going back and forth at whether we are done or not. I want 1 more, he doesn't. :( it's hard.

I'm 33 have 2 sons 2.5 and 1.5 my husband wants to try for another one before I'm 35. I have very little time to arrange this since my kids are so young still.

I am 35 and sometimes me and DH talk about another, but then we snap back into reality. We have 2 DD's-11 and 9...I just can't see starting all over again. I know mine are still relatively young, but they are way more independent than a baby would be.
