  • DH and I always wanted 2, but never thought that it would happen. After we had DS, now 11, we never prevented, but never concieved a 2nd child. In 2006, at 36 yrs old, I had a stroke, we joke that it must have knocked something loose, because in 2007 I suddenly didn't feel right. I thought I was 16 weeks when I figured it out, but they wouldn't do an US until I had testing from the stroke. When we finally got to US and I thought I was at 26 weeks..... nope I was 36 weeks and we welcomed DS#2 three weeks later.Our boys are 8/12 years apart, but we finally have the exact family size that we always wanted.

  • I always wanted 5 or 6 but i can't afford that many so I have 4 and it worked out the way i wanted it to! I wanted 3 girls and then a boy..I got just that too! My first was an "oops" and the others were planned. My 3rd baby I planned it to where she would be a birthday gift for her dad and she was born a few days shy of his birthday....the 2nd one I wanted to be born in June and she was, the last one I wanted a fall baby because I had a winter, a spring and a summer baby...I thought a fall baby would be fun, a kid for each season...and he just turned 6

  • four.. and yes planned, have one

  • I would like to have one more. But that likely won't happen. Df does not really care one way or the other, simply because having another child could seriously risk my health & he does not want to take that risk. Plus he loves my DD as his own

  • I want 3 and my husband wants either 2 or 3... so we'll probably end up with three if everything works out. : )

    Answer by katinthehat8914 at 2:23 AM on Oct. 18, 2010

  • I want no more than 2. DH has no say in it because he isn't the one that carries or gives birth..the day he can carry/give birth than he can have as many as he wants.

    We currently have one son. He was planned and if/when we have a next one it will be planned as well.
