today, my husband informed me that the ONLY reason he doesn't want to have more babies is he doesn't want to HAVE to buy a 15 passenger van.

LOL

We have three girls and one boy. We originally wanted six, but we're most likely done now.

The 15 passengar van comment made me laugh because dh and I have totally talked about how many kids we could have while still driving a "normal" vehicle.

I am also a proud owner of a 15 passenger van!

When people make smart *** comments about the size of my family I tell them I still have three seats to fill.....

We are still paying on the van we have that we don't fit in if we all want to go somewhere lol. Of course there's always that thing called a trade in.

I'd buy a 15 passenger in a heart beat! I think it's a lame excuse not to have more kids

The bigger the family, the better, I think.

Except on days like today when the youngest two boys are trying to kill eachother lol

Love your ¨well, maybe¨ around here that means we will be hearing bfp from you within a year.

We have 9. 5 girls, 4 boys. I love this last one more than any of the others in a long time and I think it is because I really want her to be the last one. I dont want to be pregnant again. I dont want to start over again. I am seeing so much that I have let slide being pregnant constantly for the last 3 years. I am tired. I am done.

Maybe.

We always said 6 ... we have 7 We were so done DH got a vasectomy. We both agreed, but after it was done I knew it wasn't the right choice. He's having it reversed next year. I know that I am done having kids so close together, but we are hoping the reversal works and that we are able to add more children to our family in the future.

We have 2 boys and 2 girls. I will be 40 in November and we are done. Not by choice but definitely financially, mentally and physically. I had a procedure 3 months after my youngest was born to repair my prolapsed bladder and pelvic floor, the doctor botched the operation and perforated my bowel which was excrutiating! I don't want to risk having more and causing further problems to that area of my body. That's why I stalk all the large family forums on the internet - I live vicariously through other large family mums!

I would have loved to fall pregnant with triplets, just to blow everyone's mind (including my own)!

We aren't a large family yet, and I don't know if we will ever get there. I would have 8 if I could. We have 2, 11 months apart

New to the thread.. Wow I am sooo happy to see other mom's with so many kids. It's almost a taboo in my family. They keep asking when we will stop and look at it so negatively. I have 1 girl and 3 boys. I also have a stepson so we have 5 and just found out we have another on the way. I will be 34 when this one comes and dh is 40 so we are done after this one. I really want to make this last pregnancy special. I'm hoping for another girl. Dh wants a boy though.

We have 4 boys and 4 girls plus our niece. I am open to as many as God sees fit to bless me with - whether biologically or otherwise.

We have 5 and just found out we're expecting #6. Ideally we wanted to be done at 4, but I got pregnant on the pill with #5 and I'm so glad I did because our youngest son is just the greatest thing ever. I'm still in shock over being pregnant but we are definitely done after this. DH is already looking into a vasectomy.

My kids are 15 (boy), 13 (girl), 8 (girl), 5 (boy) and almost 3 (boy). It would be nice to have another girl to even the score but I love raising boys so I'm kind of hoping for blue again. Honestly though it doesn't matter to me. I'll be thrilled either way.

I am currently pregnant with # 5, I have 3 girls and 1 boy with another boy on the way. I also have an older step daughter who spends summers and holidays with us so on occasion we are slightly bigger..LOL.

We say that we are done after this one (as I am currently 38 and DH is 46) but we still talk about having more and neither of us has plans to get "fixed" so we shall see.
