    3. Always 3. 4 was a choice.
    I am one of 3. My mum was 1 of 3. I always thought I was bound to have 3.

    Always wanted 3. Have 2 now and I think I am done. But I am still fairly young so you never know

    Default How many children did you imagine you'd have...

    I always wanted four. DH wanted two, I thought maybe we'd have two and I could twist his arm for a third! But then we had to do ivf and weren't sure we'd even have one, and now we have one and I don't even know if I want a second. I will use my embryos (I have 4) to try have a second as I'd love my DD to eventually have a sibling but not sure there'll be more than that.

    I always thought I'd have 3, but I met my DH in my mid 30's, so time wasn't on my side.

    We have 2 and we are happy with that. DD wasn't a fun pregnancy, and she was a challenge from about 18m-3, and I'm not sure I would have gone back for another after her even if I was 5-10 years younger!! She nearly broke me.

    For a long time growing up I didn't want kids, I think I was apprehensive about the responsibility. Then I met DH and we both wanted 1. I then twisted his arm for a second. We have 2 and are done :-)

    I wanted 3. Still want three. Had 2 but one died. Currently gestating number 3 and hoping to take her home this time.

    I always wanted 3 because that's how many siblings there are in my family, but DH has drawn the line at the 2 girls we have. He's scared we will end up with 3 girls. I was happy with 2, but DD2s birth was amazing and she has been an absolute dream baby (which is the complete opposite of what DD1 is) so now I want another 1 🙏🏻

    None. I never imagined having any children until I met my 2nd husband, even then I never longed for them. Eventually we decided we wanted one, we now have one amazing DS and we're done and happy at that.
