I want to know how many kids you intend to have. Do you intend to have more or stop where you are.



Thanks,

Amelia

Hi there! I'm 29 years. I have 4 children.. Twins Troy and Aubrey born in 2009, Cora born in 2011 and the latest Toby born early January this year!! We are so happy and want more for sure. Maybe 6 kids. I am hoping for another boy and another girl.

I am 24 and have 2 kids. Asher, my son, is 20 months, and Avah, my daughter is 3.5 months. When my husband and I were dating we always said 6- he comes from a family of 4 and I come from a family of 3. After we got married that changed, don't know why because we didn't have any kids yet. I don't quite know what he is thinking yet, but I would like 2-3 more. I do really good with pregnancy, except I start contracting really early in pregnancy and usually go about 2-3 weeks early. Other than that it is all good. So I wouldn't mind 4 more. I guess we will see what the future holds.

I am 21, I have one three year old girl and we're trying for another one. We want to have one or more together, then be a foster mother, and eventually adopt. I also want to adopt internationally. When my kids are teens, it's gonna be a kind of open door policy for any of their friends in need. I'm all about family...the one I'm making, not the one I already have.

I'm 24 and have 2 kids. A 4 year old daughter, and a 3 month old son. I would like to have atleast one more, maybe two, depending when #3 comes along.

[deleted account]

I'm 26 and I have a 4 year old and a 20 month old. My husband is the oldest of 3 and I am the second oldest of 4 so we have always said 3 or 4 kids depending on how many we can afford. While I was preggers with #2, he said he would like to keep going as long as I was able to have kids and we are able to afford them. I handle pregnancy very well so I agreed on one condition...I get to space them out however I want! He agreed. lol

I'm 21, and have a 1 year old daughter. I do not plan on having any more children. I had a pretty traumatic pregnancy, and do not care to relive it ever again.

I'm 24 and I have an 11 month old daughter, I'd really like to have 4 kids, and I'd like to be finished by the time I am 30...so I only have 5 years a few months to have 3 more kids...my husband doesn't really like my plans so it might take some convincing, lol.

I'm 26 and have 3 kids. I think we'll have one more. We aren't sure beyond that. We are just taking it one pregnancy at a time and then deciding if we are done or want another. I don't feel like our family is complete yet, that's why I say 1 more (but not soon, my baby is only a few weeks old).

i'm 22 and have a 2 year old daughter. i want 2 more, but i will be lucky to get one, my husband says "i don't think i could love another one as much as i love braeleigh" (our daughter) -- i think thats silly! but we are *kind of* trying now, i guess, though I would rather wait to try until next september. and i think i want another girl, but only because i like the name we have picked out better...haha.

I'm 26 and my fiance is 27. We're expecting our 4th in March and we are done there. He broached having more but I told him if he wants them he can have them, my body is no longer in service for child bearing. LOL!!

I have three daughters from 11 months to 3 1/2 years, and we're TTC again. I'm the oldest of 7 and my husband is one of 5. My father-in-law is also one of 10. We really like big families and will probably end up with 6-8.

Oh, and I'm currently 25.

I have 1 son right now who is 4 years old. I would love to have 1 more, but who knows when that will be. I just turned 18 when my son was born, so now I'm trying to be more settled in with life, especially financially, before we have another one. Hopefully in the next few years, I'll be able to have another one. And if it's another boy, I may try a 3rd time for a girl. But if my 3rd one was to be a boy, too, I'd be done. My boyfriend wants 4 kids, but I don't think I could handle that many! LOL!

I have two amazing kids. Our daughter Ava is 6 months old and our son Nolan is 2! I feel so blessed to have them in our lives and can't wait to have more. I want as many as my husband wants to have. I only say that because I think I could keep going infanately, ha ha! For now we definately want one more and then we will re-evaluate and decide if we are done or if we want to keep going. There is no definate number, probably not more than 4 though.

I am 26 years old and I have one baby so far who just turned one year old. I had a difficult pregnancy and birth, so based on my memories of the experiences thus far, I am done now. However, I would love to have a little girl, so maybe in a year or two, we will try and see what happens.

something that beautiful and wonderful you find the energy! The benefits will outweigh the fact that you crash into your bed every night.
