Will you have more kiddos? - yes, no, maybe?
How many do you have now?

currently have 2 kiddos, no clue if we'll have more. Probably will have more because we tend to not use birth control...and well duh it kinda happens that sex leads to more kids

Right now I'm debating things though... I want more kids, though I want to start a career. I'd love to get my masters in art history (majored in art and art history for BA). After getting masters I'd love to have a career in a museum or as a professor. I just love art and really would love that as my dream job. Always have since I've been little. But if I'm having more kids it puts that on hold due to me breastfeeding.
But I think next year dd will be old enough for preschool. She is the type who does better around others daily, so I would rather her go to somewhere than me just teach at home.
I don;t want to leave the kids with a babysitter to get my Masters. So I'd like to wait until they are in school and go to school when they are.

He is my first.

And I'm SO excited about having more!!! We want at least 4 (well, we say that now...he's all of 7 weeks old!)

DS is my first. I would love to have another 1 or 2, even though the whole experience of birth/delivery and the resulting emotional upheavals scare me a little as does the prospect of another c-section because the women's clinic here does not like vbac. And I will have to see if my job allows me to have more kids; I need to write a book soon to keep my position.

Since today is a day where my baby will not stop crying unless I am walking around with her and bouncing her, I'm gonna say no.

Seriously, DH and I are considering stopping at one because we want to make sure that we are financially and emotionally able to care for whatever children we have. Looking realistically at our finances and our temperaments, one might be it for us.

Yes.

Two.

No more for us. We have two.

We both come from families of three- two planned and the third oops. I kind of always thought the same might happen for us, too. But our second was kind of an oops (as in we were talking about starting to TTC in a few months, but were only occasionally using birth control- so no big surprise).

If I won a million dollars I would probably want a third, but my husband is certain he is done. I respect that, so we're done. And talking vasectomy...

i want two more, dh says one more. so we'll see what happens. we are kind of lazy about using bc. so i figure when we have enough kids that we are thinking "holy crud we really have to start keeping up with the bc", we will know we are done. LOL.

We're done. New baby makes 2. It feels good to be a family of four.

i think just the one. possible adoption in a few years? we'll see
post #12 of 41
dh and I have decided to revisit this question in 3 years. We are NFP Catholics and are open to whatever, but having had 5 kids already (4 living) I am looking forward also to a career in medicine or lactation consulting one day. I have been breastfeeding for almost 10 straight years and it would be nice to be "free" although I am BABY CRAZY::

We want one more, maybe two. We've wanted 9 b4 we were even married, though I think 7 at the most would make our family very very happy.

This made me teary eyed!

We are unsure. At times i'm done because i dont want to undergo another birth like this last one. But then at other times i think of our family and think that maybe there's still one more spot waiting to be filled. Who knows. It may be in the cards for us to finally adopt, something i've wanted to do for a long time and dh is fully on board!

We have 2 daughters and one surrodaughter.
