I currently have 4 and we were supposed to be done but I think we'll have one more pretty soon. After that no more.

We have four, and are going to start ntnp soon. Part of me likes even numbers though and thinks if we have five we should go for six, and that should be perfect

We use the buddy system with the four kids and I would really like to keep using it

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.

Be careful with this. I thought we would be done at 4 because dh and I like even #'s. Well along came #5 so we wanted to even it up, now along comes #6 AND #7 . Dh has already said yes to a #8. SO assuming it's not twins again (as this was a total fluke, no history) we will probably be done at 8.....But who knows.

I have 8 children 4 in their 20's and 4 little ones and I would like one more but I have had two sets of twins so there is a chance I could have another set.

We're just going to have 4. I promised myself I would stop when I turned 30 because DS1 will be 18 just before I turn 36. This one is due just about a month after my 30th birthday.

I hope I will have 5.

I have 5 now

I don't want to be "surprised" when I am 42 lol (I'd get over it and all, but just saying).

I have 4. I always said anywhere from 4-6. DH has recently started asking when we're going to try for number 5. LOL.

I am having four. Luckily, that's what I have so it's working out.

If I were younger, I would def have more - but with fertility issues we don't want to be still trying to have a baby at 50. I was 35 and felt it was time to stop after my 4th. Dh got snipped - so it's official. We both would have loved more, but it wasn't in our cards.
