  • I have 5. I stopped at 5, but mostly because dh said the house was full and we didnt have anymore bedrooms lol. I wanted one more (6), but oh well. I am good with what I have. I dont think there is ever too many or too little when it comes to kids. As long as you can financially support them, love them and your happy then you should have as many as you want.

  • We have 5 and we're done! I have 3 from a previous marriage and my husband and I had planned on one but ended up with two. I got my tubes tied after the last one to prevent any more surprises! :)

  • I have1 and right now that is all we can afford to have. I want more but in order to provide a finacially stable home we will most likely stop at 2. If we could afford it I would love to have 4.

  • l actually before having kids I wanted 4 (I love kids), but then I found out that twins run in dh's side of the family and he is a twin so then I decided on 3 because I said my luck I would end up with 5 kids instead of 4 because I would have twins the last time around lol. I can deal with twins the first time around, but don't want one with my 4th lol. But we have 2 girls now and I am pregnant with our 3rd girl and because dh wants a boy so bad he wants to try once more for a boy lol so I guess we are going to go with 4 kids lol

  • I want 3. DH wants 2. We compromised with 2. We can very comfortably afford 2 boys.

  • When hubs and I were dating I told him I wanted 2-4 kids, he replied maybe 2. We had our 2 boys, thought we were done and then years later had a 'surprise' (which ended in a miscarriage). After the loss we both decided we did want a #3 and we did plan on him being the last. So I guess I did get my way after all, I have been pregnant 4 times and I have 3 children.
