This is three and my DH is going for a vasectomy during this pregnancy. Would I like more? I think if I search myself....I can admit to myself that I've always thought I'd have a whole PACK of kids...but I don't think DH has the right temperament for more than three. My DH absolutely would have stopped at one....my DS was his special gift for me, because he knew how bad I wanted it (and now of course he is so in love with his son and they are such buds). This baby was an absolute, 100% complete SHOCK to both of us and was really hard to accept at first because we were so in a place of "the next phase is so awesome" ....and of course I got over that shock within a few days, DH a week or so, and I'm now completely over the moon to be expecting my third, but yes FINAL, baby.
I'm so envious of mamas who don't have to think about it....who can just go about their life, nursing and working in the home and mothering and then being like "oh man, I think I'm pregnant again!" - and just going with that flow. I always thought I'd have so many kids, at least five....but a few more than five was my vision. Now I've got two and a third coming and I know that's all my DH was meant to have in this life. I'm cool with it. I could never be unhappy with my life, because my kids are so freakin' awesome....but I did always imagine a "tons of kids" lifestyle for myself! That's okay....he's cool with me filling my life with as many animals as I want. So we have four dogs and tons of chickens and rabbits for meat and all that stuff I want....when I get baby fever, we will just get more chickens or pigs or a cow or whatever. I find that the farm lifestyle suits me and allows me to care for as many creatures as I want!!
