  • I definitely want at least two. I have one DD now and hope to get pregnant again this year. Sometimes I think I want four and sometimes I just don't know if I could do it- financially, emotionally, physically. I know it will be different to have a baby with a child already at home, and to try to give enough of myself to both of them. With my DD it was all about her, in fact it still is 2 years later, so I'll have to see how it is to have multiple children at home, and I would want to space them out at least 2-3 years. I am 31 now so I have some time left but I am open to seeing how I feel about this later in life and making decisions then. For now I know I at least want a sibling for my DD and another child to love and nurture, and we'll see what happens after that.

  • We have three, and we are done. If dh wanted a forth I would be willing, but he really strongly feels he is done so I am okay with that!

  • The two I have. No more for me, though I'd like to be a surrogate.

  • I have three right now they are 16, 9 and 7. A daughter died at one year old she would be 11 now. I am currently pregnant and would like at least two more after this baby.
