If everything goes according to plan, how many kids total do you want to have? I'm hoping for three, assuming I like the first one!

2-3, but DH is already 35, so it will probably be only 1-2, if that.

We would like to have two and pretty close together since my hubby is 41. I'm 33. Seems like a large age difference but believe me, you would never guess he's 41 (soon to be 42) in a million years. I didn't when I met him.

Good luck ladies.

We may decide to have another one, after having two, if we love it that much! Hah - also got to take huge age difference into consideration here -like 18 years
