Re: How many babies do you want to have?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

How many do you want? 5

Have you always wanted that many? YES

Does your hubby agree on the number? Nope he says 4 is enough.

And how many do you think you'll actually have? the 4 I have more than likely will be it.

I marked 2, but it's more like 2 OR 3.
Yep.
Yep.
I think we'll have 2 if the next one is a boy - or a "try for a boy" third if the next one is a girl. Hubby LOVES his little dd, but he also really wants a boy.

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

How many do you want?
5

Have you always wanted that many?
I always wanted between 4 and 6 and settled on 5 because that is how many will fit in a minivan.

Does your hubby agree on the number?
Yep, although at first he didn't, it took some convincing.

And how many do you think you'll actually have?
Probably only 2 or 3. We will most likely have to adopt all of our children. We have been unsuccessful in getting pregnant for 5 years.

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

How many do you want? 4

Have you always wanted that many? no when we first got married we said 3 then we had 3 and I just wanted 1 more

Does your hubby agree on the number? I talked him into one more!

And how many do you think you'll actually have? unless we are having twins this time around 4. Dh is getting the snip snip after this child is born.

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

How many do you want? 3

Have you always wanted that many? YES and NO, DH and I are both only children, so we wanted a big family of our own, but our first DS has special needs and we felt that we needed to set a limit in order to be able to provide for all our children, so we settled on 3-our original number was 5(with out having a special needs child)

Does your hubby agree on the number? YES

And how many do you think you'll actually have? only 3. After this baby we are getting a tubal. we know that 3 is the limit of children we can be good parents too

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

How many do you want? 3 Maybe, maybe 4 if we ever get rich!

Have you always wanted that many? Yes

Does your hubby agree on the number? He agrees on three as long as #2 was a boy, which he is.

And how many do you think you'll actually have? Three, let me get through 2 first though.

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

I want two (andalways have, so has DH), which is good, because that's probably all I'll get to have, naturally at least. We've both considered adopting a third though. But that would be a little farther into the future, since we're still pg with #2!

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

How many do you want? I would love 12, but atleast 4

Have you always wanted that many? No after dc #2 I didn't want anymore but now I'm relaxed and got the fever a year ago

Does your hubby agree on the number? i know he would have a hundred children if we could afford it, but right now he thinks three is all we can afford

And how many do you think you'll actually have? maybe 4, we'll have to wait and see dc#3 due in jan.

Re: How many babies do you want to have?

I chose 7 or more since I have 6 children here on earth already. Dh and I gave up the size of our family to God when we first got married. We never had a particular number in mind, just however many the Lord wants to bless us with

I do hope to have at least one more, but we are also praying about adoption too, so you never know!
