We only use charting (FAM) as birth control. But I am pretty sure menapause will be my reason for only a few more.

I hope we see some soon!

DH and I said 3 (not counting my 13 year old). But I'm not sure if we'll want another after this one... I feel like I'm getting a little old for this LOL

my dream was 10. However because of fertility issues this is my last shot. I already have 2 so hopefully I will have 1 or 2 more. So I guess my answer now would be dream of 4 but likely 3.

I still may adopt when I am older.

Funny how we all like to put a number on things in our lives. I used to not want any children, b4 I met DH. After meeting him I knew I wanted a child, and knew I didn't want an only, so I figured on 2, but while pg with #1 I found out DH wanted about 4. Now that we're at our 4, I can't imagine never being pg again.....I so yearn for another lil one kicking inside my belly....its such a blessing and a gift. So, DH says we're done for now, as we don't have room for more in our 3br, but I feel we'll definately have more.

I would love to have as many babies as God would give me, and leave the number to Him, but I guess DH isn't on the same wave length. So, he's doing the "pull and pray" thing for now, and all I can do is secretly wish he slips up lol. ! Some people look and me and ask "how do you do it?" and my response is generally very CAREFULLY! I couldn't imagine my life any other way..........

I have 4, and I always thought 4 would be it, but now that I have them I can't imagine not having more. I want more, however I love having 2 girls and 2 boys, everything is equal, it makes room sharing easy. I would like one more though, maybe in a few years, I wanna get back to college and get my degree too, so that's a lot of work with a new baby around. Who knows what will happen!
