  • I knew that I didn't want to have an odd number of kids. Lots of people in our family have three and someone seems to always be left out. It was either stick with two or have four. So now we have four and we finally put a stop to it (vasectomy).

  • I wanted eight, but I also wanted to stop at 35, so I don't think I'll get past 5 (except dh says we're done now with 3)

  • I want 5 or 6 kids. I know I definitely want 5, 6 is optional. I want a big family

  • I 'wanted' one and I wanted it to be a boy...and it was. Then I met my second husband and we decided we wanted a baby and so we had our second...a boy. We thought we were done and I wasn't supposed to be able to have anymore and we were cool with that but 5yrs later we got pregnant again and so we got our girl. I had my tubes tied as I was NOT interested in having anymore kids.

  • I have always wanted 3 or 4 kids. Hubby and I agreed that we want a big family. We currently have a daughter who is 3 and we are trying for # 2 now. Hope to be completed by 32. I am 27 now.

  • My kids are boy-8 1/2, girl-4 (5 on Jan. 22) and boy- 3 1/2. I had my tubes tied during my 3rd c-section. We're soooo done in every way (physically, emotionally, financially...)!!!!!
