How and when do you decide your family is complete?

Now that is a question I think a lot of families think about and at some point answer.

I love seeing fellow blogger friends with huge families! Seeing how they all interact with each other is great. Just imagine as those kids all get older and start having families of their own the family reunions and parties they will have.

But then there are families who struggle for years just to have that one baby and others struggle for years every time they try for another.

For us, after our miscarriage last winter I was fine with only having two children. In fact after I had Sarah I said I did not want to ever go through the struggles and heart ache of trying again.

I knew that I wanted a third baby after the miscarriage but if it didn’t happen I was ok. I think for couples who may struggle with IF (infertility) decided when to stop trying or adding to the family is when it emotionally gets too hard and draining. The heart break every month when your period arrives can be enough to say enough is enough.

Trust me, I know that feeling. The cycle we got pregnant with Sarah was the last cycle we would try for a while. I told my husband that if we didn’t get pregnant that cycle then Sam would be the only child
