2 or 3. At least 2.
2 or 3. At least 2.
0. I don’t like children, never have, never will and Fiance is equally as unenthused by children. He recently mentioned his willingness to get vasectomy before the wedding and I am thrilled.
We both want 4 children! We’ll see if that number changes after I have our first in December!
I want 2, but if our next baby is also a girl we may try for a 3rd. We will cross that bridge when we get there.
@mrsSonthebeach: 1, maybe 2. The world is overpopulated so I really don’t want to do anymore than replace the two of us. Plus, there are finances to consider. On the incomes when can expect to make during most of our children’s or child’s life, we can provide much better for 1 or 2 but would struggle with more than that.
This is about how we feel. I didn’t vote because we’re not sure yet. Our first is due in 9 days, and we’ll reevaluate in a year or two. I’m 95% sure I only want one, Darling Husband is like 80% sure. If we do decide to have a second, that’ll be it, though.
We have two already, both girls. We are willing to have two more if needed to get a boy, if we get two more girls though we are dunzo. So 3-4 for us.
We’re CBC. I like children and plan to work with them, but I have no desire to make a 24/7 commitment to one. A bee mentioned being DINKs (double income no kids) a while back, and that’s exactly what we want. I just never knew there was a cute acronym for it. 🙂
@novacaineandlaughter: I was thrilled when Darling Husband (then FI) mentioned his willingness to get a vasectomy too. It was one of the our best decisions to date.
We both want 3. I’m 30 and pregnant with #1! Hopefully #2 in another 2 or so years. If I’m healthy then at some point we will try for #3. But they say life is what happens when you are busy making plans, so we’ll see!
I said when I met him I thought that I wanted 3 but we were planning on waiting till after the wedding, though a few months ago I got pregnant accidentally lol.
Anyway being pregnant I think has totally changed my view on things. Do I want to spend 9 months pregnant then 4-5 months not pregnant then try for number 2 then spend 9 months pregnant then another 4-5 months not pregnant then ttc again? If this is not twins I will have one more than that is it! I am 34 now and I now realise that this first baby happened at the right time 🙂 one more pregnancy and I am done, finito!
I initially wanted 3 and Fiance only wanted one (he already has a son from a previous relationship). We have compromised and have agreed on two…hopefully a boy and a girl.
We wanted two, but it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen with our infertility. 🙁
0! (CBC) Neither of us ever had the desire for children, and we want our lifestyle to be one where we can just pack up and take a trip without having to worry about anything (except our animals…lol). That is not our only reason for being CBC. And no, our choice will not change, ever. I’ve had people say to me, “Oh, you’ll want kids in the future..just not right now.” Nope, sorry. We. Don’t. Want. Kids.
I have NOTHING against kids; I like them, they’re cute. They’re just NOT for me, personally.
We have two furbabies; that’s enough for us.
We have 2 little girls and those are the only two we will have. We have talked about a 3rd to try for a boy but we have decided that we are very happy with the way our family is now!
I would love five or six, but I know that realistically that will never happen. Fiance and I both realistically want two (two boys!), but will go for three if we end up with two girls first.
@Juliepants: haha, we’re opposites. I love little girls, I think they’re the best, but I just really really want to be a boy mom. Any dream I’ve ever had about having kids, it’s always boys. Fiance and I already have three boy names picked out…and half of a girl name (we’ve got a middle name, but no first).
