We have one, and are planning on one more. And right now, I'm quietly hoping for a third, but dh is adamantly against it. We'll see... accidents do happen, plus twins run in his family.
And while having a ton of siblings can be crazy, I think it'd be nice to have 2 siblings instead of just one - like dh and I. It also ups our chances of being grandparents.
We're planning on loosely ttc at the end of the summer/early fall - ds is currently 18mo, so he's be around 2yo around time of possible conception. We have season passes to a local theme park, and I'm not missing out on an entire summer of roller coasters.
Plus they have a waterpark, and it's hard enough for me to find a non-maternity swimsuit.
But our more concrete reasons are to save up for the homebirth and baby stuff we'll need (small diapers, more things like cloth breast pads and pads for me, maternity clothes, etc.) as well as giving me more time to get into better shape and to keep working on our diet (eating healthier and smarter - we've come a long ways, but there's always room for improvement).
