After this baby is born, we'll be a family of 5 (including dh and myself). My ideal size family is to have no family size at all and just have babies until we think we're done.

Realistically though, this will probably be our last because of the increase in financial requirements for any more than 3 kids. We would need a much bigger car and a larger house. Plus, food costs increase dramatically when they become teenagers and all of my kids are close in age. There's also college and other things to consider, so I think we've come to the conclusion that this is the best for us.

Just one daughter currently. I think I might be okay with just two, but ideally is like 3. If finances were no problem id love a 7th heaven or Brothers and Sisters type family lol so like 5 kids. I doubt dh would ever go for that tho

Right now we are 3 going on 4. I had planned to have a big age gap between Atti and my next baby but I guess God had other plans. I would like to have one more but not until these 3 are in school so I can afford daycare.

I come from a family of 7 kids (I have 4 brothers and 2 sisters) and Husband is from a family of 6 kids (he's got 3 brothers and 2 sisters).

We agreed on 5, and Rolo is #5. But since Cora was stillborn, I'll always be missing one. So much for ideal.

We are 3 going on 4 with this pregnancy! We really want at least 1 more after this. If possible, we would like 2 but do not think we can handle that financially. We plan to work on our next as soon as this one is potty trained(LOL we do not want a diaper bill for 2 children...)

This is our 4th child, and as I am 36 this will be our last, so I hope it's ideal!

We currently are a family of 8, with 6 kids. Ideally, if this pregnancy works out and we have this baby, then that will definitely be it, If this one does not, i will see and RE and try until the end of the year, then i will be done. so IDEALLY 7 kids

I love that this baby will even things out at 4 kids. I think that's perfect for us.

If I had a husband or serious partner I wouldn't mind one more after this one to make the family size a total of 6.

This will be our second child. I might be done after this, but DH wants one more.
