How many kids did you end up having?

I always wanted AT LEAST 4 kids. We're stopping at 4 because pregnancy is so rough on me.

I always thought I would have 4. My husband and I both come from a family of 4 children so we thought for sure that is what we were going to do. We have 2, a boy and a girl. It may have been different if we didn't get one of each right away.

As a child? 12
As a teenager? NONE
As a twentysomething? 5 and I wanted 5 for a very long time but changed my mind the last few months.
I have 4 and that's PLENTY!

As a youner teenager, none. At 17 i wanted only one. 'I got pg at 18 and thought still only 1, until she was 2 weeks old and wanted another. I have 7. Go figure! My dad bugs me about it all the time, saying, 'gee, this, from the girl who never wanted kids!' lol Funny how things work out.
