So dh and I just welcomed our #3, and up to now, 3 was the plan.  I am now feeling absolutely devastated at that thought.  I look around at our happy, loud home, and feel like we are getting there instead of completed.  So I guess what I wan to know is, how do you know when you are really through having children?  It seems crazy to me, ds #2 is only 1 month old, but I just feel this insatiable urge to have more.  Personal experiences please!  Just want to know if this is crazy...

happy coffee-addict ballerina wife to my DH:, SAHM to my awesome ds#1blahblah.gif5/05), dddust.gif(7/07), and ds#2babyboy.gif(1/11)

Ds #3 is only 1 month old?  Have you talked to your partner about these feelings?  Sometimes once a family is set on an idea, both people just accept it as it is.  If you are feeling unfinished, its worth talking to DH about.
