originally i always wanted 3, but i didnt have a great pregnancy last time and practical wise 2 is a good number for us. a parent each and a 3bed house.
My little one is 5 months old now and im feeling broody, im not sure if having another would get rid of that feeling though, or would i still feel broody as the third one grew up?
I love the newborn days and just wish they lasted a bit longer.

I felt broody for a third and we did decide to go for it and I'm 99.9% sure I'm done now. I've not felt broody at all recently. That may change come January when CK has her baby though lol

We're definitely done, like you we planned two then I felt I wasn't done after #2 was born but this time I definitely feel done. I love babies but I find myself now looking ahead to the future with the and I know I couldn't cope with another. Good thing too, seeing as H has had the snip!

Whilst pregnant I said this was the only time I would do this, 9 weeks on I still think that but wonder if I will change my mind and if I do how long will it take im not gettin any younger lol

Yes, a thousand times yes. We are SO done. We are both in total agreement, no more kids.
I have 2, plus my 2 step kids, 4 is plenty. I am far too selfish to have anymore. I like "me time" too much. If I had another, i'd never get any. I have worked out that, by the time I am 40, my kids will be 22, and 15, so they can pretty much please themselves, and I get my life back. Plus, my H is 10 years older than me, and he has said, he doesn't want to be bringing kids up for the rest of his life.
I've never been the broody type though. It took having a mc for me to want to TTC. Before that, I was perfectly happy with just having C, hence the 7.5 yr age gap.

I definitely feel done at two! After having very bad PND with my first and a second with reflux, the newborn days have been hard both times. Plus my H say he couldn't take me being pregnant again - apparently I was evil! ;-)

I'm done after one! H is 5 months now and people keep telling me I'll change my mind but I just know I won't!

We planned two and now we have two and I am done done done! Am sure it helps that my 6 month old is a bad sleeper!!

yes, we are done. We always planned 2 children, my H is 12 years older than me and I had high BP in my first pregnancy which was worse in my second and was hospitalized, wouldn't want to have that happen again. My high BP caused part of the placenta to die in my second pregnancy, which scared me.

Yes. 2 difficult pregnancies, the last of which resulted in wing hospitalised by 7 weeks due to sickness, one premature baby, a MC and a massive baby have made me realise I am rubbish at pregnancy! I can't put myself or my two children through it again.
In my mind I can picture my 2 boys with a little sister but we always planned 2 and I'm more than happy with the 2 I have.
I'm not a broody type anyway but both have had reflux and so newborn days have been quite tough, I'm happy not to repeat them!
