How many kids did you plan on having?

i was wondering how many mom's actually have as many kids that they wanted or had more or less than that. i actually didn't want any and now i have four!! And while somedays it drives me nuts wouldn't change it.

  • We have 3. I wouldn't have minded another, but 3 is what we have and at this point in my life 3 is perfect.

  • I have 5 wonderful boys, and i was the same i never wanted to have kids at all. But i love them all so much and wouldnt give up being a mom for anything. So i had 5 more than planned but am a very proud and happy mom. I have thought about maybe having 1 more (try for a girl) in like 5 to 10 years. I am still young and have plenty of time to have one more or not. As of now though i am happy.
