Yes, we only planned to have one child due to finances & the lifestyle we like to live.

We do not believe in birth control so we let God make the decision for us.  I have been pregnant five times and have three kids.  I had to get my tubes tied due to health problems but before that it was just faith not finances.

My first pregnancy had nothing to do with finances, i was on birth control, we all know how well that worked. Neways our second we were finacially stable enough for. I would like to have 2 more, not sure if we will but finance will play a role in it.

I made the mistake of waiting to be better financially....we weren't struggling just always wanted more....now we can't seem to make another baby. :(

My DD and this pregnancy were both planned and this will be our last. Finances did play a part, to give our children the best things that we can, which includes college 2 is all we can afford to have.
