Is there anyone out there besides me who only wants 2 children?

I'm rather new to CafeMom and from what polls and questions I've seen, it seems most Moms on here want 3 or more children. I do not want a big family. My 2 are enough to keep me happy and I think any more might make me go crazy!

I was just wondering if there is anyone else out there who feels the same. I feel so left out seeing posts about Moms having their 3rd or more child! I must be missing something? Do most people these days want big families?

  • I've got two, and I've told my husband I'm done. Two is a good number, in my opinion. We've got even numbers, no arguing about who has to sit in the middle, when they give away tickets it's always "family four-packs"... And both of mine have been really good babies, and I have no desire to tempt fate, lol.

    Sometimes I think I might want another one...but then I come to my senses. ;)

  • We only wanted 1 and that's what we have. Every once in a while, I'll get "baby fever" but I snap out of it pretty quick. We love our little family of 3!

  • We have 2. I'm not having any more. Hubby doesn't want any more. I never get baby fever. I don't even like babies. I do like toddlers and older though.

  • We have 2. We're done. Sometimes I sort of like the idea of having a 3rd but the reality of way....not happening. I'd really like to sleep again sometime this century

  • Growing up I always wanted a huge family. I wanted seven children and thought that would just be the most glorious thing. I have two children and know without a single doubt that I am done. I am perfectly happy with just my two chilred. Yes, I miss some apsects of being pregnant. As my youngest gets older (she's three months) I miss the newborn stage a little. However, the thought of having a third child turns me off completely. When I got pregnant with my youngest it hit me like a wave that we were done. And we're happy with two.
