    Kids are a long way off for us, but I’ve always said two and my partner agrees. Lately I’ve been thinking about just one – mind you I have a high chance of having twins – so we will have to see what OH thinks about that! I have a mental health condition that will make TTC, pregnancy and caring for an infant VERY difficult for me so I’m not sure if I can handle more than one.

    Right now my son is 2 and I am very happy with our little family but I would love to give him a sibling and complete our family.  I am terrified to try again because I had a very difficult pregnancy with some bleeding and he also came over 2 months early.  I am 38 and dh is 47 so we have to hurry up and decide what we want but ideally I always imagined having 2 children!

    beevincent18 :  It seems the older I get the less I want… lol. When I was younger I wanted like 4-5 kids! Also, going through labour has changed my perspective as well! I was seriously considering 1 and done after my first, but my husband and I would like to give her a sibling, and honestly depending on how the next one goes we might even go for a third. 

    So my long winded answer is 2, possibly 3.
