Re: How many kids do you guys want?

#5 is on the way. I'd say if everything goes fine this pregnancy I'd like 6-7. It would be GREAT if I had another set of twins next time.

No one tell my mother in law

One. My husband and I both run theatre companies and work like dogs. If we'd have more time to spend with them I'd like 3, but we'll see. Right now I'm pregnant with our first so maybe it'll all change. If we won the lotto we'd buy a farm and have 6!

We have five now. We've never set a number, but we both want more.

We have 3 so far, I feel like our family won't be complete until we have 6... But I can't see us having more than 6.

Sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy with the three but I just feel like there are three more for us.

Re: How many kids do you guys want?

We have four now. I am hoping that six is our minimum, but I'm no spring chicken anymore (32) and I have PCOS (though it hasn't slowed me down too much yet).

I always wanted 3. I have 1. Dh does not want any more. Ds is all I can handle at this time(he's 5 months). So I don't know if I will ever have another. Not sure how I will be able to chase a little one while taking care of a newborn.

We have three and we are done with "conceiving" our children, we are hoping to adopt our next baby when my littlest is 3. If it were safe for me, my DH and I would have had more, but all of my babies have been exactlly 42 weeks and on the larger side (8lbs, 10lbs & 10lbs). I was able to deliver them naturally without any tearing or complications, but carrying babies that big is very hard (I'm 5'2" and 150lbs). So I think I'm okay with letting someone else carry a baby for me

Re: How many kids do you guys want?

We have 5 and are currently pregnant with #6. After # 3 we said we were done...Several days later I told dh that um, no we weren't (I swear it was immaculate conception). We were very excited. Right before she was born, dh had a vasectomy. I just kept feeling like we weren't done and maybe we were supposed to adopt. That just didn't pan out and fast forward to when my youngest was 4, dh got a reversal. I immediately got pregnant with our 5th. She is now 11 months and here I am again.

I'm not sure if it was hormones or what but it took me a little bit to be excited about this one. I've never been anything but excited before. I'm not sure if we'll have anymore after this or not. Definitely need to keep praying about that one. Dh says if we have to get a bigger vehicle we might as well fill it up. We'll see what happens. Oh, I have 3 girls and 2 boys so we'll see if this one ties it up or not.

Re: How many kids do you guys want?

I've always wanted 6. We're going on number 5 and I think we may be done, unless there is a dramatic change to our income. DH says at least once a week that maybe this will be the week we hit the lottery and then we never have to be done This coming from the man that didn't want any kids lol
