I debated about it after the first one because of my age, finally decided "a kid needs a sibling". Joke was on me, the next one was twins. After that I had my tubes tied!

My dad used to joke about things like that. He told me one time "that's what you get for taking seriously, what was poked at you in fun". Took me until my 3rd child to realize what he was talking about...haha jokes on me!

We are going to have at least one more, if not 2 more. Our DD is only 5 months old right now, so we're going to wait at least 3 years until we try again. We don't want our kids to be stair step kids (a sibling that is 9 months and 15 minutes older than the one after it) nor do we want them too far apart. My labor pains weren't that bad. I was given an epidural and was going to deliver naturally, but the baby's heart rate dropped and I was advised to have a c-section, so I did. that part wasn't bad at all. I was a bit sore from having my stomach cut open, but would the pain stop me from having another one? No! Every child needs a sibling. It can get lonely for an only child.

I was lucky and had my babies very quickly so the pain wasn't too bad. As soon as I saw my first and held him, I knew that I wanted to have more children. What a blessing! I have 4 children and probably would have had more if my body allowed it.

When I gave birth to my first child I swear it was the first and the last because of the severe pain I experienced.It took four years before I say it's time for another child when I saw my daughter clamor for another baby.After giving birth to the second baby,the following year I got pregnant again.If I only knew I can have much less pain in delivery I can have more babies .

Yes, I said this, though it was actually while I was pregnant with my first child when I said it. I am the youngest of two children. My sister was pretty much snooty to me my entire life. Even as adults we do not keep in touch. Anyway, I didn't want my unborn child to have the same kind of relationship with their siblings, so the best way to prevent this from happening was to not have anymore kids. I was determined too. I had even signed the necessary papers to get my tubes tied. But after my son was born, my husband talked me out of it at the last minute. Since then, I've had another. My kids don't have the best relationship, but that's mostly due to my oldest being autistic. Hopefully this will change, in time...

It was after giving birth by cesarean that I said I never want to be pregnant again. It was such a very painful experience and that really gave me a trauma and hence I promised myself I will not get pregnant again. However after 4 years, I swallowed my promise because I was again praying for another child. Ha!ha!ha! But God did not answer yes to my promise. His answer is No! I don't wanna let you go through that same pain again. Just wait for few more years I will give you 2 more kids. And this happened when my twin grandchildren came into my life. Ha!ha!ha!

I had a real hard time delivering my first child so yes I said no more kids. Well just like you I had two more. The second and third births were very easy. I was sure happy that they were so easy.

yes, i just can't imagine going through the same pain all over again (it really is true that no amount of reading birth manuals could prepare you for the pains of labor). but as my daughter is growing, i'm not as definite with the "never again" anymore. right now, i just know i don't want to have another baby just yet.

Oh I have three kids now and when I had my first one I had a hard time giving birth and said to myself no more babies for now, and then 7 months later I was pregannt again and I say to myself OK go now and get your contraceptives, but since I am having high blood pressure when I am under contraceptives I stopped it and then back to rhythm and there, last year got pregnant again and he is 5 months now, but I learned, now I don't say no more to having babies, in fact we are planning to have a last one, say 3 years from now.

LOl I said that for all 4 kids. I swore up and down I would never have kids. I seen too many things when I was little. I didn't want to end up like that. 4 kids later and here I am laughing at what I said. I wouldn't change what has happened but then again, if I had to do it all over again, I would have waited a bit longer!
