I had four in 7 years so I know how you feel! I have boy, girl, boy, girl down the line. It is a lot of work but I gotta say the fourth just sort of blended in to the mix. They are older now 18,16,13 and 11 and busier than ever. By dividing chores and everyone pitching in things work out fine. Finances are tight and we go without the extras (the trip to Mexico was courtesy of grandma) but ultimately we make do. If you are done, your done. I respect your right to chose. I speak from experience that you can do it, and you likely won't regret having number four.

Oddly I get teased the most when we go to Mexico. The vendors that sell things will look at my big family and say "what's wrong with you, no TV?"
Do you worry about money or just handling four kids? How old are your other children?

I have four children, which we did not expect #4 due to complications during my third pregnancy. I lost an ovary and had emergency surgery during my third pregnancy and the doctor said, "well, at 34 and with the scar tissue and only one ovary, you likely will not conceive without intervention" Liar!
What about having the fourth has you unsure about having the baby? My MIL went berserk! She is a firm believer in you have two, one boy one girl and you quit. So number three was not good news to her. Even though she and I get along really well and I love her. We are in separate camps on this topic. I was a little embarrassed at times when people would say "are you still pregnant or pregnant again?" All I know is my littlest is a great joy and I have never ever regretted having her for one minute.
