1. If money were no object and birth control worked perfectly so all pregnancies were planned/wanted, how many kids would you have?
2. Do you currently have or plan to have more or fewer children than you want?
3. Did the number of children you want change after you had your first child?
Personally, I have one biological child and one ward. Before I had kids, I wanted 2 or 3. Now I'm more inclined to leave it at one, or have one more maximum. (Mostly due to PPD issues.)
1. Either 2 or 3
2. Yes - only one now
3. No. I never wanted to have an only child
Post partum depression.
Not fun. Not eager to go through it again.
Ah, been there, done that, got the T-shirt. But we call it post-natal depression, or PND.
We have one and satisfied.
1. Providing money is not a problem, at least one with every other woman I ever met. Probably counts in thousands
2. No, they just happen
3. Can't really recall, it was too long ago
If I have the money I would have my tubes reversed and have at least one more!
For those who know me, this is quite funny...
1. originally a dozen (which I have achieved between my biological and step children);
2. nah, it's time for the grandchildren to roll in (number one arrived two years ago);
3. nope. I love kids and always will!
I couldn't be happier!
LOL, you remind me of my mom. She originally wanted ten, later revised it down to four, and had to settle for three in the end. Unfortunately, she's getting cheated on grandchildren too. Both my siblings are convinced they don't want kids! (Though they're both only in their early and mid 20's, so there's plenty of time to change their minds.)
I have always thought that having 12 kids would be a good number.
I have one daughter and my issue with not having more than one more is not money, it is my age. I don't want to be 40 and pregnant. I plan to have two kids, total. After I had my daughter, for just an instant, I wanted many more. But, reality kicked in, and I realized my limitations.
I was quite upset the other week when the gynie told me that I was still far from menopause! Am hanging out for the day when I start to get hot flashes!
Unfortunately they are telling us the limiting factors to the number of children is not just money but also the availability of natural resources such as water and energy.
And in my country here we do not count children like you would to cattle.
I never wanted a big crowd, and I did want them spaced enough so I could give each plenty of individual attention in the first four years or so.
I started with an adopted infant (for reasons other than fertility problems). Five years later I had his little brother. To me, my "little set of two little boys" was perfect; although I enjoyed them so much we went for a third child. Three little boys would great, but adding a little girl would be perfect. I had my daughter, and to this day feel like my family is perfect for me. I considered that it may be nice for her to have a sister (after all I'd only delivered two), but I didn't want to make a career out of having babies.

Is it responsible to have a large number of children?I've been watching TLC's "19 Kids and Counting" and have been debating on whether or not it's responsible to have so many children. What are some of your views on the subject?

At the drugstore the other day an older woman was talking to my year-old son while he sat patiently in the cart (and he needed a distraction, so that was fine with me). My other three children wandered up and this woman said to me, "My land! How many are there?" as if I had a...

Do you think a woman with more than 8 children has a mental problem?Isn't it just a little insane to have so many children? Unless you are a gazillionaire how on earth could you afford so many children? And how much time would you really have to spend with them ?Just curious if anyone else thinks...

Should the government put a cap on the number of children people are legally allowed to have?This question came up on the radio after a tv show about a man with 34 children.

How many children do you have?I have 5. My only daughter is my firstborn. I am sure you can deduce the remaining four children are boys! Do you have children? If so, how many?
