Ok here is the situation....I have 2 beautiful children, DS 3 years old and DD 22 months old! I kinda want another child, but I feel that if I have a 3rd I will have to have a 4th and I dont want 4 children! Sometimes I feel very content with my family but there is feeling inside that I should have another one! 

When did you feel like your done with children?

If you have 3 children and your done, how is it with just 3?

just kinda looking for opinions!

 I love having 3! I thought 2 girls was the best thing ever, but now I have a lil son!

I have two. When I had my first, I thought I'd want like a million, lol. After number 2, yea....I'm so done. the thought of midnight feedings and all the doc. appointments and baby gear makes me cringe. My youngest is almost 4 and starts school in the fall, I just can't wait to go back to work and get out of the house and out from under all the responsibility of very little babies!

I just knew I wanted 2. I was the oldest of 3. There was always someone to team up with to go after the other sibling.

Plus after finding out the birth weight on my son (born 3/16) I came very close to telling the doc open me back up and tie my tubes. I don't even want to think of how big a 3rd baby would be.

Why would you need to have a 4th? I think 3 is the perfect # for us but I never recommend more than 2 for anyone LOL. 2 was easy. 3 is insane. 5 or more would be fun, no middle child.
