Hello!

So I have made the decision that this is my last baby. I have been blessed with two beautiful healthy babies and so far this pregnancy has been fairly non eventful- even if I have felt awful and miserable the entire time. I was blessed with the ability to fall pregnant quickly and without complication. I count these blessings every day as I watch gorgeous close friends struggle for years to conceive. What I wouldn’t do to hand over my fertility to them now that I feel I am done. Having children is such a sacred thing, and if my body and mind would support me I would have a million more… But the more I have the harder it gets. The patience wears a little thinner, money gets tighter and time gets poorer. I remember my first pregnancy. I would get asked how far I was… My response would always be in weeks and days ’13wks4days’. My husband even knew the weeks. Baby number two I knew what week I was in… My husband would text me to see how far. This baby…. I quickly consult an app on my phone for the answer! My husband was telling people I was due two whole months later than I was!
How time changes when you have two other little human beings consuming all of your time. But really, I wouldn’t wish it away for a second.
Having two and a half healthy babies has out so much into perspective for me. The house is messy and unorganised, my hair is swept up into a simple bun… But my babies are happy and content. Their smiles light up the world of many people, and their personalities exude so much joy. Love knows no bounds when it comes to children….
Maybe one more wouldn’t hurt?

  • If you decide you definitely do not want to have another baby and have a tubal litigation, make sure they tie them, not just clip them. Clips can come loose, undone etc. and you can suddenly find yourself pregnant again

  • I’m pregnant with my first and I already feel like having hundreds more. I wish money wasn’t an issue, and I certainly wish our bodies could handle more. The more I look at mums, the more I see the “mum look” it’s cute.

  • You have made it to 3! im pregnant with #2 and i have decided this will be it. Until i look at my stomach i completely forget that i am pregnant because i am so busy with my toddler, Very different to first time around where i googled what was happening to the babies development every day.

  • I have four children 18,15,14 and 4 and i know i find it very hard to share my time around especially since the big age gap i have finding things to do that the older ones will enjoy or visa versa its hard but we get through.
    I had my tubes tied at a young age so my fourth child was via IVF and i also think would it hurt to have just one more lol !!!

  • I still have no idea how people have multiple babies! One is taking up ALL my time! I know people have told me ‘you just find the time’.. But maybe I’ll wait till I find the time first ;)


    • It is amazing how you learn to manage – truly.

  • To be honest if your done, you will know. We have three children and I have always been the kind of person that would swoon over a baby. The first the want cuddles and not give them back. I wasn’t done and felt it in my heart. And although our first two were getting grown up, we went again. I can absolutely say that after having our third I am done. I have had a few friends have babies lately and not even the slightest bit clunky. So you will know.
