Re: the discussion

After #2 DH said we were done. I wasn't so sure. #3 was an "OOPS". I was scared to death to tell DH b/c I know he wasn't going to be happy. It took some getting used to, but we're both happy now. However, DH says he's getting a V now. I'm not at all happy with that.

Re: the discussion

dh and i started out wanting three, had one and thought that was what we wanted. when dh was deployed i moved home and stayed with my faimly, my son got along with his cousins so well that i decided i wanted another lo. so now i'm prego and we are both thinking about staying with just two, but not 100% sure. (mostly for financal reasons.) but hubby's looking into getting sniped after this one is born so i think we are done. but we talk about it all the time.

He wants 3 now.

HAHA...guess I'll have to tell MY DH that! He's pretty well set on 2! I told him I wanted 4, 3 at least! He told me to find someone else to marry (all this before we were married) LOL...now we think MAYBE one more...but I dunno...I think I'm getting content!

Re: the discussion

Dh said 1, I said 2. Baby #2 was a shock, I found out I was pg when #1 was 3mos old. Dh was adamant, no more. When #2 was around 2yrs I started begging for one more, and he caved. Now after #3 he says absolutely NO MORE though I would secretly like to have another in a few yrs!! He's planning on a V soon, though.

Re: the discussion

I wanted 4, dh wanted 2...we are on #3. I think we are both pretty okay with 3 though. I have logistical issues with only 3 (odd numbers bug me), but I feel 3 will be good now. Dh is going to get a 'v' after this baby is born. They 'can' be reversed and sometimes fail so I will be leaving it COMPLETELY in 'someone else's hands'...ya know?

I am looking forward to just watching my kids grow up and moving on the 'next' stage...

That happened to friends of mine. His v reversed itself.

DH and I are in agreement on this. We both LOVE kids but I am not the happiest pg lady on the block. It's not the worst but I don't love it either, just the end result.

So after this one, we are DONE having bio-kids. However, we both would love to adopt more. DH's work offers help to families who want to adopt, which I think is totally awesome!

Re: the discussion

After DS1 was born dh said he was done. We had two kids, one of each and that was good enough for him. I wanted more, so I told him that was fine but I was leaving the birth control up to him. Obviously he wasn't very good about condoms as we now have three. I got my tubes tied when ds2 was born and now I wish I hadn't. I want one more. We've talked about adoption but having seen some friends go through that, it seems it would be cheaper and less stressful to get reversed. We might foster-adopt later once we are settled but for now I'm hoping that I'm in the "lucky" .01 percent who fail.


Off topic- Akrab, I noticied that you are expecting a Journey, I have yet to meet another Journey. Is your Journey a boy or a girl?
