Completely understand.

I have a 2 year old and 6 month old. Am already considering number 3, DH is very unsure [he would I think be very happy to stop at 2]. Partly what is fuelling my deliberations is a sense of sadness that I will never get to experience being pregnant again.

Admittedly I had rather easy pregnancies but even so it was physically awkward and uncomfortable at times. However it was also awe inspiring and miraculous, that I was able to incubate a little human and then give birth to them. i loved my son's kicking and the scans and just the imagining what they would be like once born. And the excitement of the 20 week scan and discovering whether you were having a boy or girl and then the fun of choosing a name....

Yes, it makes me feel quite sad to think I may never have those experiences again. My two pregnancies were so exciting and such lovely memories.
