Hi,

I am a mother of 8 beautiful children.
They range in age from 13 to 6 months.
I am turning 36 this month and said to myself I would stop at 35.
My husband want one more. I love being pregnant and would love to as well, but part of me is saying 8 is enough.
How did you ladies know when you were done having babies???

Hi There!
Well, I'm 42 and I can't say that. I remember waking up one morning, after having a dream of a baby girl. I then told my husband I never really felt like our youngest would be my last. He said, ok. We can talk about having more when you turn 37 (which I'm 1 year older than he is). We have 2 very handsome boys together. However, we divorced in 2006 and never did get to that point of having another child. Now, I'm nearly 9 years divorced and I look forward to one day marrying again, and I will tell you that I still feel like I was meant to have 1 more child...my daughter. Some may think I'm batty, as my boys are currently 18 (first yr. in college) and 15 (freshman in high school). I don't worry much with what others think. I know what God has shown me and I believe that's where the desire comes from. So, to answer your question, for me, that point of being done, hasn't arrived. Go with your deep feeling on that. I don't know what your beliefs are but ask God to give you clarity to know and he will not fail you. Best wishes to you and your "current" family of 10 :)
