Have one teenager, he was unplanned when I was 21. Love him to death, he’s my best thing, but he’s an only child for a reason! I think I could have been perfectly happy having zero kids too. But one worked out well for me. I have plenty of money to send him to private school, pay for his college, bring him on awesome trips…. I have time for him plus time for my own things…. I was too young to have a second when I had him, and in hindsight, one is perfect for my personality as I enjoy having my own time, dislike chaos, and have tons of goals that have nothing to do with my offspring. Love being able to concentrate on him, i.e. go to all his games, to the gym together, 1:1 lunch dates and chats…

 Now that I’m close to 40, I’m looking forward to seeing him grow into his own person, and living my life!

I have a stepson, and we have decided to try to have or adopt one more.

devoutwoman :  I want to want two (because, cheaper) but me and Darling Husband are one of three and we love having 2 siblings. Tbh, right now, any amount would be great… we’ve been trying since Christmas and nothing yet.

We think we want 2, but will see how we feel after 1.

Zero. We are CFBC. If I got pregnant, I would not continue that pregnancy, and hubs is 100% in support.

I’m one of … lots … of kids in my complicated blended family, and raising another human just isn’t for me.

I have PCOS, which is a huge pain in the ass in daily living, but it makes it that much easier to wave off peoples’ opinions about my fertility. Currently trying to find a doctor to tie my tubes once and for all!

3!  Currently have 2 and soon will be TTC #3.  If I were 5 years younger and money wasn’t a factor, I’d consider a 4th, but hubby took some time to agree to #3 so that’s not happening.  🙂

I want 3 and Darling Husband wants 2. I’m older so we will see where we land. But twins also run in my family, so we could get more than we bargained for either way!

i was always on the 1 and done train pretty much forever, but once i hit the one month mark after the birth of our boy the thought of possibly having another one crossed my mind. My husband looked at me like i had six heads….. 

i think we are done though, D.H. doesnt want to have a newborn once he gets into the 40’s and hes 37 now. We’ve talked about how we will revisit the subject of having another one in another two years and see where were at then.

I think I want 3, and he’s set on 2. We are starting TTC next cycle and have no idea how any of this will go, so it’s hard to say right now what will happen. Either way I’m excited!

2-4.. I’d love 4 babies and 4 adult children. But I don’t know about 4 toddlers. And I’m terrified of what 4 pregnancies might do to my body. We will see how finances are and how worn out we are after 2.

One, I was an only child and loved it, so just the one for us.

We are very set on just wanting 1, and it’s amazing how many people say we’ll change our minds. I didn’t want kids when I was younger, so to me wanting one feels like a huge leap and I can’t imagine wanting more than that!

I’m a twin and have a sister who’s also close in age, and while I love them and had a great experience growing up with siblings I just can’t imagine how 2+  kids would fit into our lives unless it was twins.
