This is something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, cause a good friend of mine just had her third (!), and I still haven’t started yet. I always wanted lots of kids (like 3-4), but now I’m afraid we won’t be able to have that many because of age, finances, etc. So I’m just curious what you guys want for your future families.

I want 3-4 although everyone including my DH tells me i am nuts. DH wants 2. I think that if we have 2 and I still want more, I will probably be able to negotiate a third child. 🙂

I think two. DH already has a son, so that’ll be plenty for us!

You should make this a multiple choice poll. I would say 2 or 3. I don’t want only 1 and I hopefully won’t have 4, unless the first 3 kids are the same gender.

We are planning to have 3 in total. DH has a son and we plan to add 2 more to the crew!

We have a son already and if i could choose I would have another boy and 1 girl. Of course i will be happy with whatever we end up with.

I voted for two, but it’s really two or three. SO is fairly set on the idea of two kids, but I’d be open to three (we’re both partial to our own experiences growing up – he has one younger sister, I have two older brothers).

I only want 1. I’m an only child and really enjoyed my childhood. FI wants 2 because he has a brother who he’s pretty close to. We’ll see who wins. I’m leaning towards the person who has to carry the kid for 9 months, give birth and sacrifice her body.

My absolute ideal, assuming we have a big enough house and are financially okay, is 5 kids. I am absolutely willing to compromise down to 2 or 3 though. I have just always wanted a BIG family 🙂

I want two: his minimum is three! If he’s willing to do the third pregnancy, no problem!

If I can afford it, I would love to adopt 5 or 6 🙂 If I am having them- probably only 0, or 2.

I think I want 3, but thinking about money makes me want 2. But pregnancy isn’t easy for me b/c of the awful migraines that I get, and I don’t know if I can imagine doing this again and taking care of a baby at the same time, so if it’s just one or one and an adoption, it will all be fine with me.

We’ve said we’d like 4, but we’ll see as we go. I have a feeling it’ll be 3.
