I'm the same way with my girls. I have been very happy with 4 girls. So has my husband despite the mountains of pity that have been poured upon him.

However I hate, hate, hate pregnancy so much that I was done at 4, and we ended up getting pregnant unexpectedly shortly before DH got his vasectomy. We went ahead with it even though I was already pregnant. So we are 100% done, and I feel irked knowing so many people will believe this is our last because "we finally got our boy!".

But it is what it is. I adore my new baby. But I cringe every time someone congratulates me like I finally won my prize.
SAHM to 4 girls ages 10, 8, 4, and 2.
