    I wanted 5 and we just had our first at 26. Unfortunately, due to the birth, we can't have more than 3.

    We decided before we got married that we wanted 6. I was married at 20 had my 1st at 21 and my 6th bub at a few days before my 40th birthday. So yeah I took my time

    We initially talked about having 4. After 2, I wasn't 100% I wanted another. I fell pregnant with # 3 and love her to bits. I definitely feel like our family is complete. I don't consider 3 a large family as I'm the youngest of 6, but by today's standards, I think it is. We received large family supplement at end of last financial year from centrelink. It was only $163 for the year, but I thought it was interesting that we got that money.

    ETA - fell pregnant at 30 with my first, 31 when I had her. Was 33 when I had DS and 35 (almost 36) when I had DD2.

    Mum had nine between 21 and 35. I'm the eldest.

    If you wanted that many, I would say 'get crackin' but I think you have plenty of time to have four between 29 and 35.

    Another who never thought they would have a large family but DH and I always said '2 or 4'. Also I had always said to myself that I wanted to either be pregnant at 25 or have one child before then. I have PCOS and had to do fertility treatments to have our first son, I had turned 25 that same year. Got pg with DS2 when DS1 was 13mths old. We thought we were done, but then DS3 decided he would come along! After that we didn't prevent again, and then DD arrived 26mths later.

    Here I sit, having turned 35 in January and we found out over the weekend that #5 is on the way. We are both still in shock, DH more so than me. We really were over the 'baby stage' as DD is 4. Now I too will be one of those Mumma's taking their baby to prep when they are 40
