I really don't like children that aren't my own. To my mind, my son is my perfect little angel, other people's kids are annoying, bratty and I just don't care about them.

So, I only have one child, I wouldn't precisely say that I'm planning on having more, but I would consider it if I ever find a man with whom I'd like to raise children.

1) I have one, dd is 6.5 and I'm currently pregnant.

2) I would like to have 3 but I don't think my body could handle it, so we will probably be done with 2. I have a compromised cervix so each time I"m pregnant I have to have a cerclage put in (stitch in cervix) and my cervix becomes weaker with each pregnancy. I'm high risk and currently on bed rest. I may be on bed rest until Oct so I think if I got pregnant again I'd be looking at even a longer period of time like half a pregnancy on bed rest and with two kids I just don't think that would be possible. Unless we win the lottery and I could hire help! Then I'd do it again in a heart beat!

Quoting cfcf:

I have a 10 month old and would like to wait at least 2 years before trying again. We'd like 3 children but check back in with us after we have 2, lol.

lol two is easy to me, they play together and look after one another. the thought of 3 scares me. But, 3 it will be

I have one, one on the way. I'm not sure how many total I want. My husband is done if this one is a girl (he is older than me and had three other sons already).

I have one, I love him dearly and he is an amazing little boy, but I don't want more.  I like the family dynamic we have and I don't want to throw a wrench in it by adding a baby.

Also, I want to be able to provide for my son, pay for his college education, be able to help him with a down payment on a house, with buying his first car.  All the things my parents never did for me and resulted in me having such a harsh start to life and a debt burden that will probably never go away.  In short, I want my son to have a better life than I ever did, and I know that having one child makes that easier.

That said, I hope he marries a nice girl and has a TON of kids so that as we age we can have a house full of family!
