What is the perfect number of children for you? Girls or boys? Does you hubby agree?

I'm pregnant with number four, however my goal is five.. gotta get that quiver full! lol so far all girls, but I would love for this one and the next one to be a boy (so he could have a buddy to help counteract all the frilly dresses hes surounded by haha, other than just his papa and other friends ) My hubby says were done after every one, but changes his mind about a year later.. :)

  • My husband and I have 5 children and if that is what you want then so be it. There are only 2 people that can answer the question of what number of children is perfect for you. That is you and your husband. It's your family. I strongly advise that if you are young, healthly, and have the patience and the love and trust in the Lord...there is nothing else you need to have more children. We live once in this life and I don't believe that the Lord will give you more than you can handle. If it is truely what you want then do it! If you ask God this question would he put a limit on how guess in no. The answer is up to you. My husband and I want number 6 and we really don't care what people say or think. Society puts to much concentration of what the perfect family size is. What ever you can handle and whatever you decide, I wish you all the best and what I like about your view is the fact you are incorrporating the Lord!

  • We are pregnant with number 3. First a boy, second a girl, and this one is a girl. We have always wanted 4...hoping number 4 is a boy.

  • We have 3 boys so far, 2, 1, and 4 weeks. We would love to have a large family, but are just taking it day by day.

    1- is too little
    2- is ok
    3- is perfect
    4-is too many
    5-is crazy
    6- is insane
    out of all the people ive known after 4 kids the kids are raising their siblings not the parents.

  • I've got a girl, and a boy. I want one more. Hubby told me he definitely wants a boy for number three...(My daughter isn't his bio daughter, but our son is his.) But he said to me recently that he doesn't think he'd mind having a fact, I think he wants a girl. Anyway, my daughter is 2 1/2 and my son is almost 10 months old..we plan on waiting til our son is at least 5 before we have another one....and that will be it..we are agreed on that...but who knows, maybe in the future we will want more, but I don't think so..

  • No more than two. I do not want to be pregnant more than I need to be, nor do I want to stay home for years and years on end!
