Re: How many babies do you want to have?

How many do you want? i would love 7 or more

Have you always wanted that many? grew up as 1 of 5 and always loved the large family

Does your hubby agree on the number? DH only child and never wanted any, he is content right now with 2, but we may have more

And how many do you think you'll actually have? most likely just the 2 maybe 3..lol...i didn't start as young as my mom did and time is ticking away..lol..right now finacially and with DH job issues we are not in a place to have a 3rd no matter how much we would want another...unfortunalty we have to be responsible..lol

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

I would like to have 5

I have 2 I'd like to start TTC sometime soon then have a few year break before having 2 more close together

DH wants 3 Maybe 4... he's easily persuaded

I didn't want any kids. Then I decided 2 was good, now I want more after having 2.

We will probably have 3, I've had 2 c/s and going to try to VBAC next time and if it goes good DH said we could have more

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

How many do you want? 3

Have you always wanted that many? No, before we ever had children, dh and I wanted 4. 2 close together and then another 2 about 5 years later. After I had the first 2, I said ENOUGH! LOL Then, the baby bug hit and I decided that 1 or 2 more could work.

Does your hubby agree on the number? Kinda. He really would like 4 so that this baby will have someone close in age to grow up with. Unfortunately, this pregnancy has been a lot harder on me and I seem to be running into preterm issues even sooner, so dh understands and is OK with stopping at 3.

And how many do you think you'll actually have? 3

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

It's fun to read all the replies!!

I can't even answer the first question. Some days I think one will be enough, others I want to be the Van Trapp family I suppose our house could hold 7 kids easily enough I'm sure as we have this LO things will get a bit clearer, kwim?


I've always been interested in foster parenting as well....

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

How many do you want?

When I was younger I wanted 12 children, yeah a lot but gees thats what I wanted. But I was 32 when I married and we waited a couple of years before starting. Than DH and I agreed on 2.

Have you always wanted that many?

I had a tubal with DD and wish we had talked about one more but that will not be happening for us.

Does your hubby agree on the number?

2 yes more no.

And how many do you think you'll actually have?
