How many children do you want?

What's your current status, TTC, pregnant, just had a baby, wanting another or done?

How many children do you want? We would love to have 4, as long as I am able and we feel up to it.

What's your current status, TTC, pregnant, just had a baby, wanting another or done? I am pregnant at the moment, and will probably start TTC#3 as soon as I return to a healthy weight after this pregnancy. Which may be longer than I plan on, lol. But I seriously need to get back to a healthy weight.

How many children do you want? Ideally I'd love to have 5 but finances will probably have us stopping at 3. I'm going to hope for 4 though.

What's your current status, TTC, pregnant, just had a baby, wanting another or done? We are on month 8 TTC. I'm waiting to O right now but have high hopes for this cycle!!!

We just want 2 or 3. I'm pregnant with #2 at the moment so this could possibly be our last one. It makes me kind of sad.

We had #2 8 months ago tomorrow () and may start TTC in late summer.

Well, if you would have asked me during my pregnancy, I'd say I was done with 3. We had thought we would be done with 3 and planned on DH getting a vasectomy. BUT! once I had Brennen I had a big change of heart and decided I don't want either of us to do anything permanent because I could see myself having 1 more several years down the road. We'll see. My dad was the oldest of 8 and I love big families, but financially 3 may be enough for us for a good while and 4 would be much later. (Brennen was my 3rd, but DH's 1st)

I'm getting the Mirena IUD at my 8 week post partum check up in June, so we're preventing since we have a 1 month old.

I'd love to have two.

We're still TTC although didn't focus on it this past month. But I had some great epiphanies these past weekend about it and have renewed hope yet again. I will persevere until I either get pregnant or we adopt because I know a child, whether unborn or already on this Earth, is waiting for me to find them. We have a consultation appt. set for May 27th to have an HSG done. Hopefully I'll be able to schedule the HSG soon after.

How many children do you want? I would love 6, but DH was youngest of 7 and he does not want a big family. His ideal is 2-3, I'm hoping for 4.

What's your current status, TTC, pregnant, just had a baby, wanting another or done? We're NTNP. I still haven't had AF since delivering Lily in August, so we're just hoping to maybe catch that first egg.

We want four to six children. Our son is just going on twelve weeks old, so we aren't quite ready to have another yet...

Between 3 and 5 is always what I thought I'd have.

I'm pregnant with the first right now. We are already talking about the next pregnancy, though. We know we want the first two pretty close and probably will be TTC again next summer. Then after that we'll probably have a little break and then see about more. Really depends on the kids though... if we have high needs children it will probably be three, but if they are more laid back I'd love more.

We always said we just wanted 2 but now that we are having two boys we are entertaining the idea of a third in a few years. We are both hesitant to say we want 3 though because financially that could be really difficult for us.

How many children do you want? I have been in the mindset that 3 was my magic number but financially two is probably all that we will be able to afford, luckily we got one of each.

What's your current status, TTC, pregnant, just had a baby, wanting another or done? Just had a baby, probably considering this our last but not totally shutting out the idea of having another a lot later down the road.

I always thought I would go with one or two. This is my second and DH's sixth. (14, 12, 10, 8 and 5 right before baby sister is due.) We have baby girl due in August and this will be our last. I'm already in the planning stages of B/C after baby.. I'm thinking that DH should get snipped as well as get another copper IUD for me. We are really, really done! HA

How many children do you want? LOL... When I was little I wanted 4! Once DH and I got together, we said 2. Then we had Joe and I said NEVER AGAIN lol! Of course weeks later we were TTC again and 5 years later had #2. Which then we really wanted to try for a girl.... and now we're having boy #3. I really really REALLY don't see us "having" another baby. As much as I enjoy the pregnancy thing and all that, it's hard. But we have talked about adopting, we talked about it before because after 4 yrs ttc we started to... doubt another pregnancy was going to happen. So we might adopt but it won't be for at least 4-5 years, I want all my kids in school before we try to take on adoption.

What's your current status, TTC, pregnant, just had a baby, wanting another or done? Pregnant

I always knew I wanted more than one, and after Abby was born, there was no doubt in my mind I wanted another (not right then, but eventually). DH and I always agreed on 2 children, so we thought that would be fine. Once I got pregnant with Anna though, I couldn't imagine her being my last and I still can't. We haven't decided for sure but I think I'd like 3-4 children total if DH is on board.

Anna is 4 (almost 5!) months, so technically I just had a baby. If we have another, we'll wait probably a year to TTC again. I was thinking next summer so I could have a spring baby.
