  • We have eight and let God create them when he chooses. Our children are always asking when we get to have another baby!

  • Hubby is oldest of 4 and initially wanted 4 kids. I am oldest of 2 and said I would have 2 for sure and then we would see how things looked after that. We started out a little later in life also so that did play a role in things. We have a boy and a girl and DH is very adamant that we are DONE now. I on the other hand occasionaly think maybe 2 more would be nice. LOL! I think we are done though since in reality I know it would be very difficult to have 2 more financially and physically for me.

  • I nevwer thought of having children. I always played like a normal kid. And as a young adult I planned on finishing my classes. I became pregnant and adjusted my plans from there.

  • Being an only child I wanted a dozen or so kids so they would never be as lonely as I was. I'm done at 2 kids.

  • I am one of 8 children, DH is one of 8 children. We will soon be having our 5th child...I'm pretty sure we're done having kids but I'm not going to say I'll never have another one after this. Growing up I always wanted three boys (I have no idea why) but then I had two girls and I'm incredibly grateful that I did because I love having little girls and now I will soon have the three boys I always wanted. I love being born into a large family and I love having 5 babies.
