What is your ideal number of children?

Mine would be 4, but it's looking like 3 more and more each day lol. We are currently on our 2nd. If we are more finanacially stable by the time time we have a 3rd child we might go for another one.

  • I'd love two but we've been trying for over 4 years so it looks like my guy will be a singleton. It doesn't bother me that much except when people tell me that having an only child is wrong and that I'm depriving him. I just reply with something like "I'll be sure to tell my ovaries to start functioning right away." Shuts them up without being too mean.

  • I have 3 boys and 1 girl now, to me that is my perfect number. My husband however would like for us to try for another girl, we are debating considering my youngest is only going to be 1, but we've been talking about it for about 4 months so maybe soon. After that, absolutely, positively, we are done!

  • I have 4 would love more, but this is as much as we could afford. My father used to say the perfect number of kids is 2...they had 4, LOL

  • 3. I have 2 already, but I have to make an appointment with my OB cause I have 2 doctors telling me I need to rethink having another baby (I have back issues they said I will get worse) so probably going to call tomorrow.
