How many kids do you have and how many did you want?

Not really sure if this is the place for this...

The title says it all. I want 5 kids someday, right now I've just 1 DD. I know my mom wanted 4 and she had 3. So how many kids do you have and how many did you want? Just thought this would be interesting

I have one and one on the way right now. DH only wants two but he is 'not closing the door to more in the future'. I always wanted to have 4 but only if we could easily afford them all.

Re: How many kids do you have and how many did you want?

When we were just dating dh and I said 3.

First pregnancy was surprise twins the first month we tried. We went back and forth about having a 3rd (when he wanted another I was done, and when I had the urge he was done). Fate made the decision for us and we had our third little girl when the twins were 2.

3 babies in 3yrs wasn't the full plan but we wouldn't change it.

Well.... I always said I wanted 4. But I wanted 3 girls and a boy!
Now... I have 4...3 boys and a girl!
I think I have enough kids LOL but I WISH I could have another girl!! We really wanted the last to be a girl...
Oh well...

I wanted 3. How many I have is in my siggy. DH wanted 2 but now wants at least 3 because of our history.

Re: How many kids do you have and how many did you want?

I wanted at least 3 but it took so long to get pregnant with my 2, I'm not sure if we're going to have any more. I turn 35 this year. My husband is ready to stop with 2 but will not complain if we end up with one more.

Re: How many kids do you have and how many did you want?

When we first started out....2!! Then 4. Then 6. Now we say we're done with 7, but it is an odd number!!

Re: How many kids do you have and how many did you want?

I have 2 wonderful daughters and 1 son on the way. We always said we "wanted" 2, btu we started discussing a 3rd this last summer and found out we were expexting the next week Now that number 3 is on the way, Im pretty sure we are done, but its is not up to us, God has a funny way and he'll let us know what to do

We have 4 and dh and I never said we want this many or we would be done at X. We wanted kids. That said, after our last pregnancy which were the twins, we knew our family was complete.
