We think we want 2. I’m not willing to have more than that. But we will see how we feel after one.

I used to want four or five (I’m one of six, my dad is one of TEN). Now that I have a three year old, I’ll be happy with only one more 😂

Two for sure, probably three.

I want 3, Fiance wants 2. So I suppose we’ll get to 2 and see how it goes from there. Time isn’t on our side, necessarily…even if I got pregnant tomorrow (dear god no), we’d be 30 and 40 when the baby was born, and I don’t really want them super close together. 

I say all of this, and watch…the first one will do us in! Who knows what life holds, we could call it after the first, or end up with a couple sets of twins. You just never know.

I think two. We just had our first five months ago and are still reeling from that lol. But we’ll see.

I’ve always felt that I’d want two because I’m an only child and I hated it. But I’ll be 33 by the time we get married and we don’t plan on TTC right away, so it might end up being one.

But, aslas, we are a middle class family with two middle class incomes. We have three already (2 mine, 1 his – blended family) I thought I was done… but we decided to TTC after we get married this July. We cant afford daycare for 2 kids and we turn 35 this year so that will be the last one

I preferred 0 to 1. I have my one. Two would be my max and then I go get snipped. I watched my mom suffer with too many kids she didn’t want and suffered alongside her. I won’t do that to my daughter.

devoutwoman :  2 or 3 but a recent PCOS diagonsis might make planning a lot trickier
