  • All the time. I always wanted four or five kids. I have three, but dh says he is done.

  • Well, I had two right out the "gate" so to speak. So having another child was no issue with me. I now have 4 and now that the youngest is 13 - we are slowly looking forward to getting them moved out, married, and having grandchildren.

  • Not very often. Sometimes I see women who are about to have a baby and I think back and would like to have a little baby again but not yet. I like having time to wait!

  • Its almost a daily thought. I have an almost 3 year old and a 17 month old. I'm not sure if I want another one, but I look at the cute little wrinkly, pink newborns and long for that again. The cute gassy smiles, the newborn cry, experiencing their firsts. But, I'm happy and worn out with my two. So for now, or maybe for good, it will stay just a thought. :)

  • Often! My girls are 5, 3, and 1. I sometimes wonder if it would be fun to have another baby, maybe a boy? maybe another girl? Its always a thought but I enjoy the fact that we can all fit in the car, we're comfortable with money and raising these three, and their happy :)

  • Never. I'm good with my 2 (3.5 years and 21 months). :)

    I do want to have another pregnancy/birth experience, but no more babies. I'm hoping to be a surrogate after my daughter weans. :)

  • I am very done w/the 2 I have. My husband and I decided on 2 (he has 4 from previous relationships) So I am all done with babies.

  • All the time!! I would love to have more children. I was blessed with one son, who is 5 years old. I would love nothing more then for him to grow up with a sibling/siblings. Children are just such a blessing. We waited years to adopt our son, and are blessed more then words can ever say. We are so hopeful that we will be blessed again. Children have always been my heart, and I could not imagine my life with a child/children. There is no greater feeling in this world then to be a mommy!!
