  • My hubby wants 5, and I only want 3!! Right now we are TTC #3 and I told him the only way he was getting close to the number 5 is if I end up pregnant with twins or triplets this time around lol I think he is starting to believe that I am serious!

  • No that is something we talked about before we were married and nothing has changed.

  • I think if given the time he may come around. People tend to change their points of view on things once they reached the ultimate goal that they have already set. To anonymous.. yes my husband and I discussed this before marriage, but it is hard to predict these sort of things ahead of time. When we first married we both agreed that 2 children would be perfect. It wasn't until we had our 2nd that my hubby said he wants 5! lol He said he could do this a million times over and over because he just loves it. You never really how your going to feel about it in the future until you have experienced it and thought it over.

  • Nope, that's actually something we agree on. If this one is a boy, we're stopping at two (a boy and a girl). But if this is another girl, we'll try again. But even if the third is a girl, that's it. Neither of us want more than three.

    Baby names, though? We can't agree on that to save our lives.

  • i came from a fam of 4 and i think 4 is a great number. dh thinks we should stop at 2. we are just gonna be careful and see where we are in a few years. he said he wont close the idea on me because it is a big thing to me.

  • Nope. We also talked about it before getting married. We're both good with the 2 we have.

  • yeah we did...he wanted 2 I wanted 3. I did tell him after 2 he could have a vasectomy if he really wanted no more. he did not and we ended up with 3. Baby 3 was a surprise and now we are done.
