i only have 2 kids right now - but for the past few weeks i have been having dreams that i am going to have twins....i think i agree that if i am meant to have more kids then we will....
same for everyone
although i do have to question that theory when i see all of the people who have baby after baby and don't take care of them like they should

In a way, we are...I know that He will guide my fertility decisions, like I just knew I shouldn't get my tubes tied...that kind of thing!
my thanks to Claire1979 for the awesome siggy!!

I can not let God decide on my family size b/c then I would have probably 10 kids. I was sort of letting whatever happens happen and I wound up with 3 kids under 2 1/2 years old, so I'm on the pill right now to prevent from getting pregnant again too soon....

We have done that for almost 20 years now. After my oldest was born in 1988 I went on B/c for just a little while because I has cysts and they said to go on the pill. I stayed on just a short time. Since then we have trusted God with our fertility. I do not get pregnant easily at all. I so wish just once it would happen on the first try for us.

My husband and I are definitely letting God decide our family size. For a long time we thought we'd wait, but after studying the Catechism of the Catholic Church and much prayer, we've realized it's up to God to decide if and when to bless us with children.
