Well I am so happy with Cadence that I can't imagine another one, but you never know what can happen.

ideally i would like around 6-8. but that's not going to happen. we'll most likely have at least 2 and maybe up to 4.

I want at least one more child. I would love to have a little girl but I also would love more sons as well. I guess I'm willing to take as many kids as I'm meant to have. I just don't want Teddy to grow up as an only child.

Hmm. Right now Elise is perfect for us, and we're contemplating just having her. But part of me wants (desperately) to have another. I think in the end, we'll have two, and that will be perfect.

Well.. so far I still really want 3. But, we will see my opinion after I go through labor and delivery lol. My boyfriend only wants 1 or 2, I definitely dont want just 1, I was an only child and it sucks.

One more at most. Max is probably it though. I was also an only child... and I think it's ok.

I want 4. Don't know if we would even be able to survive with 4, but I would love 4.

We want 4-5. I think we will end up with 4. We tried for 2 years for DD though, so it depends I guess.

Ugh right now just this one I'm carrying lol. Nothing is cheap, everything is so expensive from maternity clothes to diapers to the crib. I keep telling my boyfriend "This is it, no more after this!" Right now I still dont really see the big hype of being pregnant (besides starting to feel pokes and jabs throughout the day) so I only want this one, but maybe, MAYBE a few years down the road I'll change my mind.
