1. Gut Feelings Speak Volumes

You know that inner voice – the one that guides you when choosing those fierce heels or whispering sweet nothings to your mini-me? Listen to it. If your heart flutters at the thought of another baby or if it feels complete, it’s telling you something.

2. Visions of the Future

Imagine your fam in five or 10 years. Are there more kiddos around the dinner table? Or is it just the crew you’ve got now, vibing together? Your dreams and visions can reveal a lot.
