More babies?

So do other women feel sad when they are done having kids? I have 3 amazing (and frustating!) children and am also a partner in an accounting firm. I'm also seeminly insane because, even though I turned 38 recently, I maybe/sort of/absolutely want another baby....Incidentally, my husband is not on board with this plan. I'm nuts, right?!?!? So how do I stop wanting it? Maybe I should be asking for pet recommendations...

    I feel that way sometimes. But then I think to myself would I rather have 2 kids I can spoil rotten and spend plenty of time with or would I rather have a bunch of kids and have to struggle with spoiling them and feeling guilty about my time alone with each one..

    Rinna, she includes her nephew because she shares guardianship with his maternal grandmother. ;) She was referring to her children she gave birth to!

      My youngest is three and for the longest time I was saying 8 is enough with my husband but lately I've thought that I wouldn't mind another but know my husband doesn't want an more. I have some sad feelings sometimes. I miss the baby stage as time consuming as it is, I miss being pregnant and I miss breastfeeding even though I just weaned our youngest in March/April of this year. Those stages were much of my life for the past 18 years....I just think it's normal. I don't know that you can stop wanting it exactly, as much as fill your life with something new.

      I'm a working mom of 4. My husband, kids and I live in Toronto, Canada. I love to read pretty much anything I can get my hands on, am addicted to chocolate and kissing my kids' necks (they all still let me do it!) and am a bit of a political junkie.
