If money, patience, time, or fertility wasn't an issue how many children would you have?

If you could pick how many girls/boys would you? or leave it up to nature?

If money weren't an issue I'd probably have 3 children. However, in reality we will most likely stick with 2 since DH and I agree that 3 might make things a little tight when they're older (eat more, more activities, college, etc.). As for how many boys/girls I don't think I really care. I'll be happy with whatever combination of kiddos I get!

Perhaps 2. We can afford 2 right now but we're happy with 1. I have no preference for the gender.

I think 4. We're most likely done with 3 though.

As far as gender is concerned I'd probably like a girl for Lila's sake. The boys are so close and such good friends I'm a little sad for her she won't have the same opportunity.

I think we will have 4 and that's our max. I'd love a girl but I'm fine with either

If money, patience, time, or fertility wasn't an issue how many children would you have? 4...We'll probably stop at two so we can afford college and weddings and cars, yikes. If we had a surprise 3rd it wouldn't kill us, and we might try for a third if we don't get a boy and a girl with 2.

If you could pick how many girls/boys would you? or leave it up to nature? If we are just having 2 kids, I'd like one of each...If we have three, I'd rather have only one girl and two boys. God will give us what is best though, so I'm just trying to remember that.

I want 2 and I don't think it would change. If anything 3 tops but I like even numbers.

I'd leave it up to nature but I'd love a girl.

I'd have two, maybe. Or maybe just this one!

I'd leave it up to nature. I'd love a little girl but I'd be happy with another boy too.

I would have 2-3, I've never seen myself as a mother of 4 or more! Although, if its that or NONE I would take it!

Gender I dont really care, I would love to have one of each though at least.

We would love to have 4. 2 of each would be awesome (my parents got that lucky) but we would take whatever we were given!

If money, patience, time, or fertility wasn't an issue how many children would you have? 6-10, but only if all of the above weren't issues, probably going to have 1-2 together, though we would love 4.

If you could pick how many girls/boys would you? or leave it up to nature?
Ideally, even numbers of each gender.

We have talked about having 3, but I don't really like the idea of having a third c-section, the thought of a second c-section scares the crap out of me..

I would really like to have 3, but with having to be a working momma I think we are done with the 2 we will have.

I'm really not fussed with the gender but if I HAD to pick, then I would go all boys

I would have 1-3 more if money & patience weren't issues. I wouldn't want more than 6 kids though no matter what.

I'd want at least 1 more girl.

If I could convince Dh I would probably have 6-7 or more. Dh jokes with people that I would be perfectly fine as one of those people who have 15-20 kids.

I am fine with either gender, but I really do want at least one more girl and one boy.

I think I would have 3-4. It's sort of hard for me to answer since I don't even have one yet, so I have no idea how DH and I will take to parenthood. As much as I want boys I think I'd let nature decide on gender.

4, but I really think we will only have 2. I just love the "warmness" and overall family size of 4 kids, especially when they are grown. Ideally I would love 2 boys and 2 girls.
