I think that may be normal.  As you grow and get new life experiences your perspective changes.  As I said in another post- you never know how you will really feel until the baby gets here.  A bunch of kids might sound great until you realize how overwhelming it can be.  Or you might think you only want one until you see how cute your babies turn out!

I agree with PP. I would wait and see. I had a friend who wanted six kids (1/2 adopted, 1/2 biological) and now that she has one and is overwhelmed (for a variety of reasons I won’t go into here), she is seriously considering stopping at one or waiting a while for number 2. Conversely, we know of a lot of people who have two and the youngest is already 6 or 7 and then they’re like “Oh heck why not?” and go for a third even though they originally planned for two.

In addition, once you do the math and the finances, you may want to reconsider the number of kids as well. They really can add up!

Haha I guess I’m the opposite, or at least my husband is. The first time we ever talked about kids, he said he wanted 3, and I thought to myself “wow that’s a lot!”. Then he said 2 and we had basically decided on 2, about 4-5 years apart. Once I got pregnant, he started thinking he’d be fine with just one. 😛 Who knows what we will decide once she gets here, haha. I am thinking we’ll want another in a couple years, but he thinks he’ll be satisfied with just the one.  Definitely going to play it by ear!
