Fiance and I have talked about this and decided on a number. I have a toddler from a previous relationship, and we would like to have 2 kids together, so 3 kids total. My toddler is a little boy, and we have decided that if we have 2 more boys, we MIGHT try once more for a girl, so then we would have 4 kids!
Have you discussed this with your FI? How many kids do you want? Whats the reasoning behind your number?

Nevermind, I answered my own question.

1 bio, 1 adopted… Haven’t decided whether we’re going girl or boy for the adopted one. We’ll just get through this one first!

I’ve got two bio.
Get the littlest out of the terrible two’s before I plug the adoption idea.

We want two kids.
Although sometimes I struggle with the thought of any, I really don’t want to have just one. I’m an only child, and was really lonely through the 7+ times my parents had us pick up and move.

We have always said 2, simply because it seems if there are 3, someone’s always the odd man out, and personally, I would have hated being an only child. I feel bad for people without siblings. I also think if we ended up wanting more than 2, we’d probably go for 4, just to make things even, but we’d have to own a lot of land. I don’t know how people have 5 kids and live on a 1/4 acre.

Fiance and I have talked about this since we were just bf and gf. I don’t see kids in our future, and I told him he needed to understand that or there really wasn’t any future for us. He thought about it and eventually said he’d rather have me and no kids than kids without me. (awwwwwww). But we’ve discussed it many times very seriously. I won’t say never, because you never know, but I just don’t see it happening for us and that’s how I want it.

My husband wants two. I’m secretly hoping for 3 or more! Haha. My parents had 3, but their parents had 5 and 6. So I have lots of aunts and uncles and cousins and my kids won’t get that. So I would kind of like my grandkids to have lots of aunts and uncles and cousins. I think 4 would be good. Maybe I will get lucky and have two sets of twins! lol.

Two kids if we have a boy and a girl. And depending on our financial situation, if we have 2 boys or 2 girls, I would go for 4. I don’t want a middle child.

We want two kids 🙂
Biological is our plan but if we need to I’d love to adopt…I am a big believer in it and my brother is adopted.

Three or four of our own. In my family four tends to be the ideal number; not so few that the kids miss out on sibling relationships, not so many that it overwhelms the parents. SO is more likely to lean towards three since he only has one brother. We’ll see what happens! 🙂

Fiance wants 2, I’d prefer 1. We will start with 1 and see what happens 🙂

I would love 3 – – I will be turning 31 just after we get married – I would have to pop those three out pretty quickly. So I am thinking we’ll have 2 – FH wants two because he is one of two. I am the last of 5 and I love having siblings, plural

I hve my two girls from previous relationships, and we’re trying for a baby now. If we have a boy, then we won’t try for anymore. However, if we have a girl, I think we will try again for a boy. I wouldn’t mind being a foster parent when my kids are a little older, but that will depend on the development of my oldest child (autistic).
