I'm pretty stuck on 2. DH will not commit to a number, believe it or not! I'm the oldest of 4 & he's the youngest of 2. He says he wants "at least 2" but refuses to commit to a specific number haha.

We will probably have 2... maybe 3. We both have sisters so we both know how nice it is to have a sibling. But I guess we will see how it goes since right now we don't have any at all!

0 at the moment, but hopefully this year I will get pregnant!
=)


My husband and I do want kids. We are thinking 3-4 kids which is possible since we're pretty young still (turning 22 this month). We can't wait to start our family.

My husband and I have talked about having one child, and feeling good with one if we didn't get to have more. We both have multiple siblings (I have a twin and 5 others) and he has three, so I think we both agree that we don't want to have as many as our parents did, for a lot of reasons, many of which are financial!

We always talked about 4 kids. At this point we would both be happy with 2. I think though that we may just have to be happy enough with our just 1.

KH and KT,

I've always desperately wanted multiples although they don't run on either side so it's incredibly unlikely! I have no idea why, the idea just appeals to me. I hope you two get lucky!

Thunder up!

Katie,
Twins run in my family too. I think it would be cool to have twins as well. Although the thought of 2 newborns at the same time is kind of terrifying!

We're in the same boat as most of you: keep trying for that first, and then take it from there! We were thinking 2 or 3, but I have a lot of friends who needed to stop at 1 for various reasons, and that would be ok too.

I'm secretly hoping for multiples. My mom is a twin and she and my aunt definitely have a spooky but very cool connection!

Right now even one seems daunting. Don't get me wrong, I'm really excited, just also terrified. That being said, I have a sister and it's a really special bond that I'd hate for my kid to miss out on.

Thunder up!

At the moment I'd say two. But if we could move to a bigger home and TTC would go easier I'd definitely want to have more :-)

But for now I'd be happy just to get pregnant with our first and go from there ;-)

My husband and I both feel our family would be complete with 2. We are just starting to try for our first now; so we will have to see how we feel and what life brings.

I have always wanted 2. We are going to TTC starting November for our second. My ex-husband and I tried for over a year for a second with no luck. My little guy is 8 now and my hubby has finally decided to try for another. I figure if it's a girl I'll have 1 of each and if it's a boy I'll be out numbered, so two is good lol.

My husband and I both want 2. However with life the way it is, we both need to work, so we may end up with only 1.

I would like to have two, but hubby talked me down to one. He'll probably end up being a stay at home dad, since I'm the primary income...unless we can get him through school and he can pull as much salary as I do. I'd love to be a SAHM.

My DH and I have always talked about wanting 3 or 4, but we never expected it to take almost two years to conceive the first! I think at this point I'm hoping that we will have better luck TTC in the future, but just so grateful that we are pregnant right now and more focused on getting the first here healthy!

This is kind of a hard question for me. I am so very happy with my two kids. My second one was really hard for us to get pregnant with so I feel like we have been truly blessed. I feel somewhat greedy to even think that I want another one. But we do want a third one. I love being a mommy :)
