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

I wanted 7 or 8 kids.. dont know why just always have. i have only 3. i have nothing but c sections so 7 or 8 is out of the question. In a year or two we are going to try for baby number 4 and that will be my last.

  • I wanted 3 or 4. We have 3, which is fine. The "baby" is 8 and I'm ok with not starting over. Plus the chances of having a 3rd boy on top of having a hormonal teenage DD would send me over the edge.

  • I always planned on having a whole houseful. But after battling with infertility, I feel blessed to have the one I got. I'd like one more, but it's not looking as if that will be in the cards.

  • I used to want 0 kids, and then I wanted 4, and we compromised on 2. I really would like a girl, but I can't have another boy! haha

  • i wanted 4, and have 2 (one of each). id love to keep having more, and its not totally out...but not likely b/c we just dont have the money.
