    Two would be perfect for us! And we both come from 2 children families!

    Three or four. I loved growing up with four siblings around me. It was loud and complicated and busy, but never lonely. MinMan is one of two, and now he’s keen on the idea of a big family after spending time with mine! 🙂

    I’ve always planned for two but with this first pregnancy’s all-day everyday morning sickness I’ve said several times that this one child may be it for us.

    Two, maybe 3.

    Just one, unless we have twins. I’m already 35 and we have yet to get started. I really only have the energy for one.

    3 preferably – but only if I can squeeze them in in the next 5 years (I want to be done birthing babies in my early 30’s)! We are both from 3 kid families and were happy with having 2 sibs a piece!

    As many as we can afford. Ideally I’d love to be a stay at home mom (at least part time) and have 4 or 5 kids, but at least in the next few years hubs and I wil bothl need to work. Probably we’ll end up with 2 or 3 kids.

    We’d love to have 2. 3 might be a possibility if it happens 🙂

    I hope to have 2 kids then either foster or adopt later.

    We’d like to have three; maybe four if we had three girls.  🙂  Even though pregnancy was no picnic, I’ve enjoyed our daughter so much I would gladly go through that a million times again!

    I would never want just one because I think there are valuable life lessons to be learned by having a sibling.  I think I would adopt a second child before just having one.  

    Ideally we would have two kids.  This is a good easy number. 

    However, we both come from larger families and I would LOVE to have three (or even more) kids but the costs really start adding up.  We would have to look for a 4 bedroom house if each needed their own room, harder to fit in a standard vehicle (minivan needed), more expensive to travel (5 people don’t fit well in a hotel room), etc etc.   I think in the end it will depend on where our lives are after having two.

    I think if money wasn’t a factor, and I could pick the gender we’d have 4.  Two of each.  I have a sister, and so does DH.  I really appreciate the relationship of a same sex sibling, and he thinks it’s great to have the opposite. 

    Realistically, we’ll probably have two.
