How many children do you plan to have?

    Three sounds like a good number. But we'll take whatever comes, whether that be one or five!

    I'd like 1 or 2 more biological and 1-2 adopted yikes. can i handle 3-5 children? o.O

    I think it is safe to say a minimum of two but up to four. I'm the eldest of 4 and my DH is the eldest of 2 so as many as we can afford or as my mom tells me, however many God blesses us with.

    I would like 4, but the husbone says that we're going to see how we do with one first, ha! I'd really like a big family, though.

    the mister and i have agreed on 2-- altho i would think about 3 if our first two were boys. but that opens up the possibility of having THREE boys and i don't know if i can handle that!

    Two and done. No matter if the next is another girl (yay!) or a boy (yay!), we can't feasibly afford more than two in Los Angeles. Bummer, because I love being pregnant, and newborn life.

    Originally I wanted 2 kids. To be honest, taking care of a 5.5 month old baby is a lot of work for me, and there are days when I can't imagine having more than one. I know that one day down the road it will get better, and I will miss having a newborn. As of right now, I'm happy with just one. A few months to a year later, that answer may very well change.

    2. I want an even number and there's no way I'm having 4. Hubby says he wouldn't mind 3, but I told him that unless he gives birth to #3 or we have twins the second time around I'm done after 2 since I'm the baby incubator.

    When I was in my 20's, I wanted 4 or 5-I'm the youngest of 4. But since 35 is creeping up on me and we aren't even pregnant yet, that number has dropped. Theoretically, we'd like 2 or 3. Somedays, I say I'd be really happy with just one!

    Looks like I'm the crazy here. We want 5-7!

    We think three.

    If this one is a boy, DH wants to be done... If not we will decide to try for a 3rd or adopt.

    I've always said 4 and husband has said 2 but we're both willing to be open to the idea of 3. We'll play it by ear and see how we feel once we actually have kids and we we stand financially.

  14. loveisstrange

    I think 2 will be our limit, honestly. DH is even saying that we'll see what happens after this one.

    I know we'll end up trying again for a boy, though.

  15. BabyBear

    I am the oldest of 5. Mr. Bear is the only child. I want 2-3 children while he wants only 1. I think I can get him to agree with just 2 though. It's never an argument about how many. I think he's more nervous about any future financial situations and wants the best for our future family.

    DH already has two little boys. So we'll most likely only have one. IF by chance I have a girl first, I would consider a second. If it's a boy, it will be the one and only. I refuse to live in a house with 3 young boys and one old boy. no no no. I'd go insane.

    I say two no matter the gender, my DH says if we get 2 girls, he would like to try for a boy. However in my mind, my DH is 1 of 3 boys, and I am 1 of 3 girls, so in my mind if we try for a 3rd in that situation we are destined for all the same gender.

    I wanted 3 initially but I'm thinking two will be the better choice from a financial perspective. We'll see how I feel after this one!

  19. mrsjyw

    Ideally 3, 2 boys & 1 girl., DH wants 4.

  20. cyneswith

    persimmon / 1202 posts

    2 is the starting number. If we want more, we'll adopt/do foster care. After #2, one of us is getting fixed.

  21. L2sweetpea

    I only want 2 no matter what genders but my husband would like a 3rd if we got another girl...we'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

  22. Rescuemom10

    I always wanted 3. Well when I got married not only did I get a wonderful Husband but an amazing daughter (now 8). So there is ONE for me. So I guess I will have two with DH and will have my three total! : ) We will see.

    @MH.ALBANIA it's not just you! I want a BIG family :). I'm thinking at the moment at least 5. One of my good friends is one of 9, and her father is one of NINETEEN kids! They both love big families, and I'm excited about the idea of lots and lots of kids

    2 is the absolute limit, then we're done. #2 is cooking right now and then the factory is closed for business. We want time to travel, have money for college, kids are expensive and we want ours to be well taken care of.

  25. SugarplumsMom

    bananas / 9227 posts

    Ideally two. But we'd be happy with just one healthy muchkin.

  26. charlotte

    I would love to have 1 or 2 close together and then adopt a baby several years later!

  27. MrsHelen

    I want two, DH wants three. We'll see!

    @ Penny Lane and @ MH.Albania

    We want a big family, too! As of right now, we hope to have 5-7, but would be very happy to be blessed with more!

  29. Mrs. Pen

    blogger / wonderful cherry / 21616 posts

    @ MH.ALBANIA & @ZUZU2AND11 yay! I love seeing women who want to have a big family

    For hubby and me it's always changing. When we got married I said 3 and hubby said 4. Then my number kept going up lol I would say no more than 8 but I think only 4 biological and we would love to foster or adopt some kids later on.
    I am pregnant with our first though, so I keep an open mind, we'll see how this one goes

  30. Dr. Pepper

    apricot / 461 posts

    We want 2. Ideally one boy, one girl. However, if we get 2 of the same sex, we would consider trying for a 3rd. However, no more than 3!

  31. Mrs. Pink

    GOLD / kiwi / 605 posts

    gosh, my mind has changed so many times! As a teen, I always wanted 8. Yes, 8. Then when we got married, we thought maybe 4... and the longer it has taken us to conceive, that number has slowly dropped. Now, I think we just want 1, but if we ended up with 2, we'd be ok. No more then that though!!

  32. Mrs. High Heels

    blogger / eggplant / 11551 posts

    I was thinking either 2 or 3. Hubby wanted 3 or 4... but after reading this sweet article, I'm leaning more towards 3... http://www.huffingtonpost.com/glennon-melton/one-two-three_b_1243884.html

  33. Mrs. Pickle

    blogger / wonderful cherry / 21628 posts

    We both want four. Now that we know that we can't conceive on our own I doubt that is going to happen. I'm hoping to conceive multiples the first time around so we don't have to go through fertility treatments more than once. Neither of us want only one.

  34. BSB

    hostess / wonderful apple seed / 16729 posts

    We plan to have 2 or 3.

  35. lilteacherbee

    cantaloupe / 6791 posts

    We want 3, ideally 2 girls and a boy, but we'll be happy with whatever happens! I'm 22 now (and we're about to start TTC) so we're hoping and praying that we'll be finished having kids by the time I'm 30.

  36. Mrs. Pickle

    blogger / wonderful cherry / 21628 posts

    @lilteacherbee we want to be finished having kids by the time I'm 30 too. I'm 23 right now.

    The hubby and I want 2 kids - 1 boy and 1 girl, if we're lucky. However, if our two kids are of the same sex, we'd try for a third. It stops after that though. LOL!

    Before I got pregnant, I said 3 or 4. But pregnancy has been hard on me, so although I'll probably do it again, I think 2 will be my limit. If we have a second girl, DH I think will want to try for one more to see if we get that boy...we'll cross that bridge when we get to it!

    at first, we both wanted 3 but now we're thinking 2 is probably more reasonable.
