    Having children was never huge on my list of things to do in this lifetime.

    My husband and I agreed upon 1 and had 1 after we had been married (nearly) 6 years. He'll be 20 his next birthday. So, my plans really didn't change, we agreed upon 1, we had 1, we have been more than perfectly happy with our 1 through the years. I have never experienced "baby fever", I have never had any need or desire to have more children.

  • None. We were happy never to have kids... But nature and failed birthcontrol had different ideas.

  • We wanted 3,4 or even more. Even after our fist we still wanted a few, now that we have our second, I'm not sure, it's a trying job for sure, but, for me it's more about the quality of time we would be able to spend with eqchother if we have more. Sounds a bit selfish, but we have to have a healthy relationship to make sure our family has one.....

  • None. My best friend back then and I swore we were never having kids...I now have two teens and she has none!

  • I didn't want any children for a long time, then I changed my mind, and after 2 years needed fertility drugs, miscarried twice and had my son. I was SO happy to get one child....then baby fever struck again and I wanted another one....but my husband left us and that's the end of the story. If I had the where with all to adopt, I would have liked 3 or 4 kids.

  • I never really wanted to have kids, but didn't want to not have them either, if that makes sense. When me and hubby got married, we said two, maybe three. After the first one, I really didn't want to go through pregnancy again, but now we have three.
