How many kiddos do you have? Are you happy with that number? Want more? Wanted less, but it was a "surprise" pregnancy? How old are you?

Lots of questions. I didn't want to post each one individually, wouldn't have made sense. Plus, it prevents one word answers. =]

22- 1 son, Another baby on the way - gender unknown.
I did initially want 4 kids, but judging how this pregnancies going, it'll end up being another preemie, and I don't know if I could handle 2 more preemies, especially when I was on hospital bed rest for 5 weeks. Who would take care of them for that long? Just seems very selfish.
I might want another one, but that'll be very iffy.

  • I'm 24. I have two boys ages 4 and 1. Both of my pregnancies were unplanned and I had to have a c-section with both of them. I am perfectly happy with two children and have gotten my tubes tied.

  • I'm 32, 3 kids.

    expected that I would only have 2 kids then had severe PPD after #2 because I was done having babies. 3 years later and ok with no more babies....SURPRISE here comes #3.

    the instant #3 was born I felt complete.

    #1 and #2 we had to ttc for 12 and 18 months. #3 should never have physically been able to happen but she did and I couldn't be happier.

    I had my tubes tied when #3 was 5 months old. and never had a second thought about it.

  • I'm 38 with two boys. I thought three was the number but two is what I can handle and I'm very happy with it. We can afford two and travel still and three would have pushed the envelope.

  • I'm 32 with three kids- a boy (7) and two girls (5 and almost 3.) Dh always said he wanted two kids, I always said 2 or 3. The youngest was a surprise, but a happy one.
