5- because that's how many embryos we got with our IVF cycle.

However, DH says even if we have triplets next, he wouldn't mind trying for a naturally conceived baby :crazy: So DH says 6

I have 5 and I think this might be it for us. If it was up to me, I'd love to have 6, but I've had to have c-sections for each of them due to a medical problem, and for my health and safety, this is our last. Maybe we would adopt in the future..who knows.

We have 6 and are still undecided about more. We love our kids, but things seem to be just right for now. We have 4 girls and 2 little boys at the end

We have 7 now. Would love at least one more, but 10 would be good.

I would love 8, but I think 4 is plenty for us right now.

Using my DS app, please excuse the lack of proofreading.

Lurker here, I only have one baby but DH and I are already planning on having at least 3... or 4 or 6... we both really love children and each always knew we wanted bigger families. When we first met we connected over our love of kids and wanting to have our own. We are young, and pregnancy and birth went well for me, I hope that our faith and our funds allow our family to grow and grow!
