Honestly I only want the one son that I have. When I was younger I never wanted to be a mom. I wouldn't give it up and I love my son more than anything in this world but I don't want anymore. I wish I could get my tubes tied now but they won't do it. That my sound bad to some of you but that is my perogative. So how many do you want or have? Why?

I want only 4 to even it out lol!!  No, I just want a large family.  I should stop at 3 though.

I have 4 and I want 5.  I have always said I was going to have 5 kids.  Now, I think it will be true.  I probably would have stopped by now, but I would like to have a girl.  I have 4 boys.

I know some people that don't want kids at all.  I don't judge anyone by their choices.  I feel people just do what feels right to them.

2 and we have 2.  My husband and I are both one of 4.  It was too much growing up in that chaos.

My husband wanted one, I want six and we have 3. lol. I have convinced him to go for four, just to try for his boy, but then we're done. Our car won't fit more than 4 kids right now anyway.

I just want the 2 I have...I never really though about how many kids I wanted to have while growing up I just knew I wanted to have more than 1 because I am really close to my sister. We got a girl first and then a boy so I said "thats perfect one of each...im done." My SIL is cooking her 5th right now (she said after the 4th her hubby was carrying the 5th but it didn't work out that way) and they are all 7 yrs and younger...I think thats kinda crazy.

I have 3 girls.  I always said I wanted 4, but talking DH into another will be tricky.  I will have as many as DH approves..and not in a creepy kind of controlling way.  He came from a large family and has always said he doesn't want that for his family.  Of course I am an only child so of course I want my kids to have brothers and sisters.
