1 Bump

How many children does/did your SO/DH want?

Mine wanted 1 at first, then after the first one was born he decided he wanted 10... I guess that say something for our first and how wonderful she is!! But I don't think I'm going to put my body through 10!

    when we first met he wasn't sure about having kids but now he LOVES his daddy's girls :)

  • My husband wanted 3. I was happy after 2. As soon as my second was born he said "Let's have one more". I thought he was crazy. But then we had an oopsie baby when I was 40. We are both glad. It really completed our family.

  • When we were dating and 1st married my hubs said he wanted "maybe 2" children. Well over our 20 year marriage his attitude did change, we have had 4 pregnancies and have 3 children.

  • We both wanted 4 from the start, and still do. Our third is due in about 5 weeks, so at least one more after that.

  • I've always wanted 4, but I'm pregnant with my 3rd and thinking "I'm getting too old for this." I thought for sure that if this baby was a boy, my LP would be done, but even before we found out it was another girl, he said he wanted one more. I want another child, just not another I'll tough it out one more time, but I don't want to wait long.

  • We both just want 2 and we have 1, so one more to go, if possible. If not, then we are happy with the one that we have.

  • We both wanted 5, but after the challenges of my first pregnancy and the bright challenging child we have I think one mare would do it for both of us.

  • --not mare, but more

  • My DF wanted 3 kids, but after his 2nd (with his ex) he's changed his mind and doesn't want any more. He has full custody of his 2 and they are quite a handful.
