How many children do you have?

Did you think you'd have more or less when you were younger?

I have 3. When I was a kid I always thought I'd have 4 but as an adult I was good with 2...then I got a little surprise!

  • I have 5 (well, #5 is due in July). I thought I'd have 4 when I was growing up, I had 3 and that was enough but then I divorced and married a man who had no bio kids so we decided to have one more, and then . . . suprise!

  • I have 2. As a child/teen I decided I never wanted children. Then I met my husband and my opinion completely changed. We have 2 and I would love 2 more.

  • I wanted two.

    I have three. My second baby turned out to be twins.

    We are done!

  • I have 2. When I was a kid/teen I thought I'd want 4. After 1, I was just going to have 1, but then we decided 2 would be better. Now, I have my tubes tied and I love it. I ♥ it.

  • I have 3 kids. I would have loved to had a 4th baby but due to 3 previous c-sections and massive amounts of scar tissue, a 4th just isn't possible.

    As a child I always thought I wanted 3 kids....I came from a family with 3 kids.

  • Way back when Hubs and I were dating (22yr ago) I told him I wanted 2-4 children, he said maybe 2. Well over our 19 yrs of marriage I have been pregnant 4 times, have 3 children and 1 miscarriage.

  • i have 1 and 1 on the way. we will probably stick to 2 (unless we get a surprise) but i have always wanted 4.

  • I always wanted to have 3 kids. I didn't think two would be enough, but 4 would be too much. Now I'm 20 years old, and I have two. and I want one and maybe even two more.
