  • I didn't want any either. But I became a teen parent and endured a sad lonely pregnancy. I guess now I'm trying to make up for that because I'm married and pregnant with my 5th.

  • I always wanted 6 kids. We have 5 (born in 2000, 2001, 2002, 2006 and 2010) and we're done. I had my tubes tied after the last was born in July.

  • At one point I wanted 6, but I ended up with 2 and then I got fixed. I guess I changed my mind :)
