    Always wanted 6. When I met my hubby and told him he was happy as he wanted a big family too. He is one of 9.

    I wanted 3, I have 3.

    I wanted a boy first, called Matthew. The protective big brother.
    I had a boy first, not called Matthew. He doesn't particularly like his siblings.

    Then I wanted identical twin girls, one called Rebecca, one called Mikayla.
    I had one girl next, not called those names.
    Then I had another boy.

    So I've ended up with some of what I dreamed of.

    Always wanted 3, when younger that was to be 2 in my 20's and 1 in my 30's, almoat 34 and have an almost 2 yr old and pregnant with number 2. Continuously left to tell mil and dh mates to bugger.off with their advice of.3rd children always being accidents or mistakes. I am a middle child and my parents never felt that but mil and all these mates have sahm's as wives so shove their financial issues on us when i work hard for my family mil benefits from my money and i want my money to go to my family dreams not someone who could have and still could work and doesnt want to why discourage me just cause 2 was their dream.

    I always wanted 3. Had 2 and thought no way I'm having 3 and then unexpectedly fell pregnant with DS2 and had three in the end anyway.

    I always thought I would have two, I'm from a family of 2. But when I met DH it changed to 3 as he is from a larger family of 4 and I love the relationships he and his siblings had. Had 1 boy, then second pregnancy was twin boys. Thought we were done until a surprise pregnancy! I'm nearly 12 weeks now so it looks like we are going to have 4 😀

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

    5. Even immediately after having DD. Unfortunately we don't fall pregnant easily so it looks like she'll be our only.

    Two. I always wanted two boys.

    I'd like 4 now, but I think DH will want to stop at 3. And I'd be over the moon with a third girl
