We were definitely not going to have another child after ds1.
Ds2 was the result of an un planned pregnancy & arrived when ds1 was 3.5.
Ds1 is now 5 & ds2 has just had his 2nd birthday & I am now so glad that we have the 2 of them.
Ds1 loves his little brother to bits & it is so lovely to see them interacting together.
It was hard work at first, but things are becoming so much easier now that they can play together.
I know of quite a few people who have said they didn't want any more children when their first ones were tiny & then changed their minds a few years down the line.
I suppose I am the opposite! I am pg with no 3 and although my dh is not keen on having more than 3 (for mainly financial reasons which I understand), I am beginning to feel really really sad that this might be my last pregnancy and my last baby.....anyone else have similar feelings?
No traumatic birth just didn't want anymore (DH quite a bit older than me) - also didn't enjoy the first year or so much as life very unsettled in those days. Thought about having another when DD1 was 2 but it was too early for me and only changed my mind when DD1 was 3. Unfortunately I had miscarriage so yet another year and have a virtual 5 year gap. DD2 is really lovely and I am very glad I changed my mind.
my wee chap is 4 and i said NO MORE!! when he was born. we didnt even think we d have kids but i got all homonal one night- hence little chap! but i really started getting hormonal again when he was about 2 1/2-left it 6mths b4 i told the hubby and we both realised we were thinking the same thing! we ve now been trying a yr so hopefully we ll be there soon!-go for it-
