We sat down and really evaluated how many children we actually wanted the other night, and DH said that after thinking his ideal number is two. I had been hoping for four or more, to be honest, or as many as we could financially support.
I feel like two is such a blow. I know we have to take it day by day and child by child, and just wait to see how life pans out, but I like the thought of planning. And I know I want a larger family than four of us. We're both only children, and I just can't imagine only having one or two babies.
Am I being selfish? Am I being immature? I'm just kinda down about this, wondering how the compromise will work out. Seems kinda silly since we're only TTC #1, but I can't help feeling like my family won't be complete with two children. We're so young and I feel like getting pregnant now is "wasting" a chance, even though this is what we want so badly right now. Sorry for the rant.
How did you all decide your family was complete?
