How many babies do we all want???

I'm happy and content with my 5 but if had a surprise a few years down the road, I wouldn't mind.

We're happy with three. I'm still kind of on the fence about having one more. I really want to try for a girl. But I have a lot of thinking to do about that. And I think I'd have to talk my husband into it.

We've said four, but I could do with a few more than that. I have five sisters and a brother so only four seems so... incomplete.

I always thought I'd like about 5. DH jokes about wanting 10, but I don't think he's serious. There is no hard and fast number, the possibility of another baby is something that's always up for discussion.

I want four. That seems like a common number here doesn't it? are we all just crazy homebirthers? I didn't think I wanted more before I made the HB decision, but now it seems so much more like a journey, rather than a burden, does that make sense?

I want 4! But hey, I will take what God gives me, and if it means having 5 thats totally cool with me! Being a mother is all I want to do with my life... nothing more and nothing less.

Before I started training we wanted about 8. And then I started training and I want atleast 4. But I don't have to birth them all. We just want more children...we will take them how they come to us. Also a big thing in me not wanting to be pg again is my 1st sons type 1 diabetes. At this moment it scares me to death that our next children could have this. So...for now we are satisfied with our two.

I have always wanted 4 children, but as I am known to say "there is ALWAYS room for one more!"

If you can love and feed 4, you can love and feed 5!
