How many kids do you have and how many did you want?

Not really sure if this is the place for this...

The title says it all. I want 5 kids someday, right now I've just 1 DD. I know my mom wanted 4 and she had 3. So how many kids do you have and how many did you want? Just thought this would be interesting

I have one and one on the way right now. DH only wants two but he is 'not closing the door to more in the future'. I always wanted to have 4 but only if we could easily afford them all.

Re: How many kids do you have and how many did you want?

When we were just dating dh and I said 3.

First pregnancy was surprise twins the first month we tried. We went back and forth about having a 3rd (when he wanted another I was done, and when I had the urge he was done). Fate made the decision for us and we had our third little girl when the twins were 2.

3 babies in 3yrs wasn't the full plan but we wouldn't change it.

Re: How many kids do you have and how many did you want?

I wanted 3 and my husband wanted 1. Then my husband changed his mind. Because of my age(41) and problems with fertility we prob. won't be able to have another. We might start trying in a month or two though. We have 1 now.

We have 3 girls and I want one more, maybe 2 more...but at least one more. I think DH is alright w/ that too, though I probably want one more child a little more than he does.

I wanted 3. How many I have is in my siggy. DH wanted 2 but now wants at least 3 because of our history.

Re: How many kids do you have and how many did you want?

I wanted at least 3 but it took so long to get pregnant with my 2, I'm not sure if we're going to have any more. I turn 35 this year. My husband is ready to stop with 2 but will not complain if we end up with one more.
