I wanted three. I thought i would at least have one of each gender. But that didnt quite happen. I have 5 girls. I finally had a boy recently! Now i am done. I was brave enough to keep trying until i got my son! So now i have half a dozen. Lol

I always wanted a big brood around me, 4 or 5, but after having two boys, my energy just wasn't there and my bank balance wasn't too kind either! Constantly having to repair furniture, replace cheap mattresses and darn clothes they'd worn out meant this mommy only had time and energy for two little wrecking balls! Wouldnt change them for the world though

When I was younger I wanted 4. I am one of four and that just seemed ideal. I have one, and I do not plan to have anymore. My baby boy is my world.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my perfect siggy

I wanted 4 kids when I was growing up but ended up with two due to health issues for me and being able to afford that many kids.

Before kids (and pregnancy) I wanted six. Nice round number. Once pregnancy started, I said NO MORE. Then I went back and forth for a little bit on having two.
Quite sure I only want one.

I don't think I've set a target before having one.But the first few months after the first, I've said NOOOO to my husband.
Now my first kid's 1, I think I'd be ready to have a second. If, just if, I suddenly feel like it...

But I gotta say, I'm an only child myself, there are the good times (everything is yours), and the bad ones (that there's no one you'd be sharing emotions with. and you'd become VERY dependent to other family member).
Just a choice, or just...chance. I guess.
