Thank you. I always thought I'd be more like you, McMandy... homebirthin lots of babies, etc. (I wanted 7-9. I come from a very large family and love it and wanted that experience for my kiddos too). Now, I just want to do God's will, even if it's vastly different than the vision I had had for my life. My first son has a lifelong birth injury and I've learned many lessons from my "little inspiration". And because of him, I live in this different world that I never thought I'd live in and we've found many joys along with the hardships. Though I hate c-sections, I sometimes wonder if it's God's way of shutting the door to a lot of children in order to carry out another task He has for us to do. Anyway, the ramblings of a tired mama. :/ thank you for your empathy... It helps to hear "that sucks" every once in awhile.

Re: How many kids do you guys want?

We have 5. I would love to adopt 1 child, so I want 6 total. Hubby does not want any more.

He wanted 1, I wanted 3, so we decided on 2 when we got married.

One. Pregnancy was miserable for me. If we ever have the money, I would like to adopt one or two.

Re: How many kids do you guys want?

I am one of 5 and DH one of 10, so we both grew up with big families.

I've always wanted at least 5 since I loved the size and dynamic of my family growing up, DH wanted 4-5.

We have 3 now and are just taking it one at a time for financial reasons, but are using NFP and open to God giving us whatever he thinks we can handle, even if it's not what we planned. I'm hoping to add #4 sooner rather than later, but we'll have to see what happens.

Re: How many kids do you guys want?

When I was young I wanted 4. Now that I have 4, I want more. DH wants to keep trying until we have a little girl. I say given our odds we will have to adopt! I wouldn't mind if I only had boys. I think they are so much fun . We are trying to wait a year to give our #3, who has SN, developmental time, before having #5. I'm already missing having a baby though, since my #4 just PL'd.

Re: How many kids do you guys want?

As a kid I always said I wanted 9 (my own baseball team). While dating my dh and I agreed on 4 or 5 kids. We figured we'd take it year by year. Our twin girls (#3 and #4) are 7 weeks old now and my dh feels done. I'm torn. Part of me wants to be done and part of me keeps thinking there's another seat in the van so why not one more?
