  • I want to stop at 3 even if they are all the same sex.

  • No. One child is enough for us.

  • I stopped at 3 - all mom had 6 girls and out of we 6 she only has 3 granddaughters so now she tells us we will all have granddaughters...and so far she is right except for 3 greatgrandsons!!!

  • I decided awhile ago that 2 kids are going to be more than enough...But once we have this baby, we'll have a girl and i guess i can say yes LOL

  • No, because past a certain age I feel it's unsafe to have children!

  • No I wouldnt, I am happy to have what I am given regardless of sex.

  • So long as I could safely still have children and could afford it I'd have continued having babies until I had a son, but if I had all boys I'm not sure I would've continued to have a girl because growing up I was always around little boys. Most of my baby cousins are boys, I have six younger brothers, my friends were mostly boys so I knew more about how to care for boys than girls but now a lot of my friends have girls so I'm sure I would've decided I wanted a girl by now. Luckily I had two girls, then came my boys. I will soon have two girls and three boys so I think I'm done.

  • I would not have had more than 3 children. But if my first 2 had been boys, I would have probably had a 3rd to try for a girl. Note that my second WAS a girl and I still had a 3rd. So that wasn't a big stretch, I was pretty sure I'd go for 3 either way :-)

    Actually, I was sure I'd have 3 boys, but was thrilled to have a girl, then scared because she is a "girly girl" and I'm not. I'm really not qualified for girls. But having 2 of them, at least each will have a sister to help them with clothes and stuff. So God helped me a lot there!

  • No, I have 3 girls and that's enough, I wanted a boy but not that bad.
