  • I did not want any. I have 4 and would not change it.

  • Good question. I always wanted 2 ... I only have one DD right now, but my husband wants 4 .... so I'll probably end up with 3 (nice compromise).

  • I never wanted kids. I used to say "cats not kids". Everyone still teases me about it. I have two kids and wouldn't change a thing. :)

  • I didn't want any children at all for the longest time. It wasn't until I started dating DH that I started wanting them, which is good cause he already had a son. Now we have the son from his previous marriage, a daughter that is 6 months old (almost) and will probably have one more in a few years. That's it though, no more after that. We both agree he's getting snipped next time around. If he could be the one to give birth I might reconsider the number of kids I want, but I think two is enough.

  • I wanted 0, until I was married about 2 years, then after my son was born I wanted 2 more. I have the one. And I'm very happy.
