How many children do you want?

post #1 of 45
Thread Starter 
And tell me what number you are on also?

This pregnancy will be baby #2 for me. I want 3, I think. Who knows really as I only have one right now, and I will be solo parenting this time around. But I think I would like 3.

How about you?

honestly? always was pleased with two and never expected to try again. But because I'm with a new partner after a divorce and my partner has no children of his own, it made me really want to have just one more.

lol, sometimes plans change I guess.

We'll probably have 5. I want to be pregnant one more time after this and we want to adopt at least one child.

Hmm, 2 dozen? Of course I will be 41 when this little one comes, so we might have to adopt again <grin> I started out wanting 2. Later we thought 3 might be nice. We were sure we were done after 5 - till we adopted 5 more. Then we were blesses with more babies... I can't believe there was ever a time I didn't really want them. Now I have 5 younger children, 5 teens, and 5 adult children. They are all very cool people!

Seriously - I do hope we might be able to have 2 more... or 3.... I wish I wasn't so old already!

This is #2 for us, and we are thinking we would like 3. Both DH and I are from families with 3 kids, so it seems to be the magic number for us :-)

This is baby number 4 for us. BEfore this we said somewhere between the three we have and six. So now it will be, somewhere between the four we have and six.

This is my first and I want 3 min and 9 max. I am willing to compromise on the max but not the min. I think 3 is my DH's max but once we have our first I am hoping he might get more excited about a large family.

We wanted 4, but it took us 3yrs to get pg with #2. Between my age and our mutual fertility issues, I don't know that we'll get to do this again.

5-6 sounds good to me

geez, I always thought i'd want 3, but i'm hating this pregnancy so much i think i'll be closing the factory after this one (#2).

We are two and through for sure.
post #12 of 45
This is #2 for us. I always thought 3-4 would be nice. My husband thinks 2 is a good number. So we've decided we'll see how we feel after we've got 2. I was an only child and have always wished I had siblings. DH is the oldest of 4 and thought that was too many...

This is #3 and our final baby. I will be 42 when its born. My old body can't take much pregnancy anymore.

This will be #2 for us. I've always wanted 4, but dh thinks that's too much. He's open to three, though, so that's what we're going with for now.
post #15 of 45
This is #2. We have always figured we would have 3. But, you never know how things will go...
post #16 of 45
We always said we wanted 5-6. Now we have 2 with #3 on the way and think we'll probably stop at 4 we're going to try and wait 5 years or so before 4 comes
post #17 of 45
This is #2 for us, and will most likely be the last, although I will concede that you never know . I will be 36 when this babe is born, and am not sure I want to have another baby when I'm pushing 40.
post #18 of 45
I'm on #2 but I really want 3 or 4.
post #19 of 45
just had #2 six months ago. it was a big change for me, emotionally and physically. i never really wanted kids so much but after my 1st, dd, i knew i didn't want her to be an only child and i fell in love with being a mother. i love my ds #2 but i feel like i'm done, i'm 27. but it's not set in stone. i definetly want to wait at least 4-5 years before we even consider another. i think all you mama's with many kids are great and amazing and my hero!

We always wanted 3. Number 3 has decided to join us so we will be finished after this one. I'll be 37 and I feel like we will have a complete family.
