How many children do you plan on having? Do you and Dh agree on the #?


I want four. Dh wants two. THREE would be a good compromise for us!

Well with two now, i think our limit is 4. Hubby wants another boy so 3 may do it for us, but we've agreed not to exceed 4 if we don't have luck having a boy by then.

Probably two, but if for some reason we happen to get rich maybe three.

I want 2 or 3, DH says he is nervous about having even ONE more, he says he isn't good with infants. He doesn't know if he can go through the 2 hour waking up and crying thing again. Basically DH would be happy with JUST Davey, but I want at least a little girl too.

When dh and I were dating we said we wanted 3. Then out popped the twins and we said we were done. Of course on their second birthday I ended up testing postive so suprise - 3 it is. Dh is now fixed...so no more kiddos for us.

We have 5 girls so we are done. We always wanted to have 4 or 5.

And just for the record, none of our children are here because we were "trying" for a boy.

DH wanted two and i'm now 29 weeks preggo with #3, I wanted 3 but won't rule out a 4th or even 5th, but it will be at least 5-8 years before I have any more. My DD is 2, DS is 1 and i'm due April 10th with another girl, and i'm only 22 so I have tons of time for more later on if I want more....

Right now I just want one. My husband wants at least two. I told him it depends on how this first pregnancy goes. So far it's been rough. But maybe I'll change my mind when my little brat is here

I am pregnant with #2, a boy. We already have a girl(8 1/2 months), so I am pretty content. I think that 2 will be fine with me. I thought about having a tubal, but being so young I decided to hold off, just in case we want a third at som point. We just need to be more careful so we don't end up with #3 right away!

I would love to have another one. But dh only wanted 2, and then Hannah was born #3, now he says NO MORE, and I totally understand money wise. So I'm pretty sure we're finished.
He was supposed to have a Vas when Hannah was 6 weeks, she's almost 7 months now and he still hasnt had it, so onlly God know's when were done...lol.

I have 2 now, both girls. They are a year apart. I would like 2 more, at least one more.

Hannah is adopted. Then after 5 years of infertility I found out I was pregnant with Emily. I have PCOS pretty bad and I am not really sure I can have another one.

We will see.....
