  • I have 2. 1 girl & 1 boy.
    I wouldn't mind 1 or 2 more but I am perfectly happy either way.
    I am just thankful to have two sweet, beautiful, happy, HEALTHY children!!!!!

  • growing up I never wanted any kids! then I got married and wanted 4, then I got pregnant and wanted only the one, now I want one more. I want a girl, so If baby #2 is a boy, we might try once more for a girl, but we will stop at 3 boys.

  • I didn't want any until my husband started talking about having kids. I wouldn't mind having 2 kids, but for now I am happy with the 1 I have!

  • Under different circumstances I'd like to have another one. But right now, one is perfectly enough for me. (No, can't change the circumstances, that are holding me back. That's life.)

  • I always wanted four... but I stopped at three because my body doesn't do too well with pregnancy and delivery... If I had a choice though, I'd still go for the fourth.

  • I want at least one more. Maybe 2, if I can talk dh into it. We only have 1 right now. A 4 year old girl. We're going to start trying for #2 soon.

  • I was good with only having my girl but then after my divorce wasn't careful and now I have a 6 month old boy. Love them both to death. I'm good now with my girl and boy. But if I get married again and my new hubby wants another one I wouldn't be totally against it!
