Yes our loss affected how many children/pregnancies we were thinking of having. We just lost our 3rd child but first daughter on May 3rd, 2012, she was going to be our last. We originally just wanted 3 kids, well I wanted five and DH just wanted to try one last time (for our 3rd child) for a girl. Because Isabelle passed our family doesn't feel complete and we feel like we need to try one last time. We would like 3 living children but if our next pregnancy has a fatal birth defect like our daughter I have no idea what we will decide. So right now I guess it all depends on how our next preganancy goes but I believe DH just wants 3 living kids for now.
Not really. We have 5, and as we've gotten older, we kinda just feel like we want more. We don't really have a set number, I guess? Something happened when we had number 4, and having more just didn't seem out of the question anymore.
I always wanted 3, we have 2 children and tried for the 3rd and have had 2 miscarriages in 6 months. We are going to take a break and mayb try one more time and be done after that either way.
I lost my first pregnancy, so we hadn't even begun our family. We had to build our family afterward--and we kept to our planned number. :-)
I've always wanted at least 3 but at the moment I just have my two. Right now it's undecided if we're gonna try for a 3rd or not.
