  • 4 but we stopped at 3 due to the scare with our last child

  • At the beginning I wanted 4, then I had one and changed my mind. Then I wanted 2, a girl and a boy, then I got 2 boys. So now I want 3, hopefully 2 boys and 1 girl. But if I would end up with a 3rd boy, I would be ecstatic

  • I would love many, 4-5, but lately I am discovering that maybe it is not meant for me. I have 2 and I feel like I am losing my mind.

  • I have 3 and that is enough for me. My body wouldn't be able to handle another pregnancy. My last 2 pregnancies were very rough, but the labor and delivery was fast..

  • Just the one, and probably adopt another one or two children as well.

  • As many as I was blessed with. I would love to be able to take in foster kids and give them a safe happy home. This may all be because the two boys I have are babies I shouldn't of been able to have. Medical miracles! We won't be able to have anymore.

  • Just the two I already have. Now, if I had infinite patience, I might reconsider that number.
