Thats a tough one.
A lot of people want a certain number and then they will be done..
Some want no kids after a certain age
I really want 3 kids, but I will settle with two if I have to. I would never do anything permanent (tubes tied of husband getting snipped) until I was closer to 40. I know a lot of people say they dont want kids in their 30's, but I wouldnt mind if I was like 35 and an accident happened lol.
When I was pg with my 2nd, we talked about the possibility of a 3rd. However, when he was born so VERY sick (he was unresponsive & blue, needed to be resusitated -sp?- was on a ventilator, faced possible open heart surgery, etc etc), we decided that we were done, & I just would not be able to be pregnant again (was on bedrest, had m/s the entire time, blah). DH got snipped. Of course, I still say I want a third, but I love my 2 boys. They are almost 6 & 8 now, so to have another one at this point would be crazy, IMO! The good news is, my siblings have just started having kids (I have a 7 month old neice) & DH's brother has a 2 year old, & just a had a baby last week, so I can still get my baby fixes!!
i think il just know when im done, i think one day il just have this feeling that my family is complete and then il know im done. i dont really have a number though i know i want atleast 3 or 4, right now i say i dont really want to have kids past 30, but that could very well change
I always wanted 4 children but I think we're going to stop at 3. DF says one more ONLY. He is only open to one more because I told him I wasn't done and he knows if I couldn't have another one it would be a deal breaker for me.
Huge thanks to *Kiliki* for the FANTABULOUS new siggy!!
