This is #5 for us.We had to buy a bigger car when I had our 4th and it seats 9 so we still have some room.Our house on the other hand is on the small side , there is barely enough room for the 4 kids to sit at the table, we have to eat in the living room.Oh well.I thought I was done and had even started to offer my infant car seat to someone the week before my BFP.I hope to have a girl so DD has a sister to whisper secrets to.

I am so determined to make this baby (#4) our last!
I hate what a terrible mother I become when pregnant. It's like a 9 month vacation from schooling, parenting, teaching... ugh! It takes every little bit of what small amount of energy I do have to focus on keeping myself relatively healthy and out of the ER. ( I have H/G. every.single.time)

I told DH I am getting the Mirena again ASAP after birth even if we have to skip a months worth of bills to pay for it. (my usually fantastic ins. won't pay for it).
I had a Mirena after #2, and had it removed to TTC #3 (compromise for DH wanting boat load of kids), so I'm familiar with it.

Also, we had always planned to be done with kids before I turned 30, and I'll be 30 in Dec of this year. So this last kiddie is really pushing my timeline! LOL.

So have you all told family and friends yet? I haven't. My first prenatal appointment isn't until the 13th. Because of my two losses I like to hear the heartbeat before I tell ppl. For me it's just not fun having to call and tell family if I do miscarry. With my losses we told everyone we were pg only to turn around two weeks later to say the babies had died. By the time I have my appointment I'll be 13 wks 5 days. This is the longest I've ever had to wait to hear the heartbeat.

In my state, the state will pay for birth control. (Population control or something!) Worth looking into.

Dh is getting a vasectomy after this one is born. I can't do hormonal birth control - it makes me fat and have no sex drive.

Three cheers for vasectomy!

I wasn't comfortable with it at all after our youngest arrived (dd), but now that this little one is on the way, I know I'm DONE. I'm not sure who's more excited for the vasectomy...dh or me. Seriously. I know it will probably be weird and a little sad to end this part of our lives, but I think we're both pretty excited to end the "what if I'm pregnant" worries, too.

We are like spirit-twins or something - I was not ready to be done after dd was born but am so ready now! Dh is thrilled to get a vasectomy and I had to convince him to wait until this baby is born. Our friends got one and they said it reinvigorated their sex life.
